·         Dance Club meeting is today after school in the theater.


·         Yesterday the Junior girls basketball team travelled to White Oaks for their last regular season league game.  Our Devils played well but found themselves down by 6 points at the start of the 4th quarter.  OT battled back to tie the game in the last minute however the Wildcats were able to capitalize on their free throw and offensive rebound, preventing our Devils from getting down the floor in time for a quality attempt to tie the game again and we had to settle with a 29-26 loss.  Top scorer for OT was Sarah Malone with 12 points.
