The baseball team ran into a tough one last night as they lost 18-1 to Washington Street rival SHG. Not much went right for the good guys, but a lot of great lessons were learned as the Cycs could do no wrong. SHS highlights included 2 hits and an RBI by shortstop Trevor Minder and a scoreless inning of relief pitched by junior Jacob Parker. Next up is a doubleheader today against Washington at their place this afternoon.

Great job 1st hour History classes! There were ZERO students tardy on Thursday! All students received a Sonic cheeseburger coupon. Your class could be next, so be on time everyday
