  • LCMS volleyball starts season

    The 7th grade Lady Hawks opened the night by falling in straight sets, 21-8, and 21-14.

    “We lost to a very good program. We will grow as a team and I am very excited about the progress we will make,” said Head Coach Kendrick Bryan. “We need to get better at serve receive and being quicker to base position.”

  • Never give up

    “No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.” For most people this is certainly easier said than done. Senior Lady Hawks basketball player Katelyn Boone has adopted this philosophy over the last four years, all the while with an infectious smile on her face.

    In 2015, Boone was looking forward to stepping into a productive role for the 2015-2016 Lady Hawks. However, one afternoon in early November, that optimism was put on hold as she suffered a season-ending ACL injury.
