Our Youth basketball team is supposed to go to Ohio on Thursday. However, with the winter storm warning we felt it was best to cancel this Thursday's game. Hopefully we can reschedule the trip to Ohio. Information will be shared once we know more.
I am waiting to hear back from the administration about activities for tomorrow and Thursday. I will be sending an email later this evening with updates.
Thank you and stay safe!
Reminder: Our Youth game today against Eton is cancelled due to their school closing down for two weeks. We will work on rescheduling the game. Keep your eyes peeled for an update, if there is any. Thank you for your ongoing support!
