Junior Tigers Update: January 11, 2018

JUNIOR SCHOOL SWIM TEAM
Now that Winter Break is behind us, the bulk of our schedule lies ahead. The JS Swim Team will be back in the pool, putting laps down and building for the upcoming three meets. Our next competition is on January 26 and 27 at the St. Georges’ Invitational Elementary Meet. Go Tigers!

JUNIOR SCHOOL BASKETBALL
Ah, Winter Break…such a lovely, well-deserved rest for our community that comes right in the middle of the middle of the basketball season (grrrrr). As a result, the second half of the season always feels condensed with games and practices happening immediately upon our return to school. We have a busy time ahead with all three basketball teams playing multiple games in the next couple of weeks.

Best of luck to our teams!
