Weekly Announcements 10/10

Announcements for the Week of Oct. 13, 2016


“Winner of the Girl Up raffle contest is Kimberly Cruzaltc from the Senior class. Congratulations, you will receive your prize soon.”

Eagle Volleyball is Playoff Bound!

After sweeping Berkner last night, our varsity team upped their district record to 8-1, tied for 1st place with Coppell, who we beat last week on their court. We are ranked #8 in the Dallas News Area 6A Rankings, for the 2nd consecutive week.

We have 2 big matches coming up that we would love for you to attend:

Friday (10-14) at RHS vs. Lake Highlands

Varsity/ Fr A 5:30, JV/Fr B 6:30 *Before football, no excuses 🙂

Tuesday (10-18) at RHS vs. Pearce

JV/Fr A 5:30, Varsity/Fr B 6:30 *Senior Night (Tailgate at 4:30!!!)

A win Friday will secure at least a tie for 2nd place, while winning out the remainder of our district schedule will potentially force a 1st place tie-breaker situation with Coppell (if they win out). Please congratulate these hard-working kids listed below!
