The Girls Golf Team battled through 30 mph winds at a tough U of I Orange Course and advanced to their second straight sectional tournament with a 2nd place finish at the regional.  The team’s total of 360 was 16 strokes behind regional champion SHG.  Highlights from the team included personal best rounds by junior Kylie Fair, who carded an 81 to finish 4th individually, and sophomore Katie Mae Milhiser, who fired a 91.  Senior Sofia Baptist and Freshman Kayla Adkins rounded out the scoring for the Senators.  The team will be back at the Orange Course on Monday for the sectional. Good luck ladies.

Reminder to everyone coming out to try and see the football team make history that the game will be played on Saturday at 2pm at Memorial Stadium not Friday night. 

Would you please now rise for the Pledge of Allegiance!  

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, Indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
