Boys basketball had an interesting week last week. They lost to Brown City last Monday 48-58. The final score doesn’t tell the entire story for this game. While the boys didn’t come out on top, they played an impressive game. Strong competition like Brown City helps the boys prepare for challenging post-season games. The boys also played in Caseville on Thursday. They came out of this game with a win and a final score of 51-45. The boys have one game scheduled this week. It is on Wednesday in Harbor Beach.
Girls basketball had a rather boring week; they had one game last Friday in Caseville. The girls took on the Caseville Eagles with ease and the final score was 52-30. The girls have no games this week. The day before Winterfest (February 4th) the girls will play a Pink Out game. Proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
This week is the week all students have been dreading for weeks: exam week. Exams will be January 26th-29th. Seventh hour exams will be Tuesday. Fifth and sixth hour exams will be Wednesday. Third and fourth hour exams will be Thursday. First and second hour exams will be Friday. While this does sound like a long week, school will be dismissed at 12:15 on Thursday and Friday.
