Last weekend, the JV team had their Semi-Finals at TMA. It was their first time competing against all units in their class. They earned 7th out of 24 and were 4th in their round!

The Varsity team competed in the WGI Mid-East Regional and came in 12th out of 22. They were one spot shy of making finals, and they had an amazing performance!

Congratulations to both of these AMAZINGLY talented teams!!

We’re also looking for shadows for a lot of our positions which will be filled by senior parents, what better way to learn the ropes than by someone who is currently doing it?
