Baseball Update:

The boys baseball team swept Edinburg in both games last night - 13-3 and 10-0. Freshman Josh M.  pitched a no hitter. What an accomplishment!!! Josh had 7 strikeouts and 3 walks. Evan N. came in as relief pitcher, serving up 4 strikeouts.  Colton L., on offense, went 3-3, a double and triple, with 3 stolen bases.

Track Update:

The GIRLS team placed 3rd behind the Waverly team with 2 first place finishes and 6 second place finishes.  Sophomore Elizabeth E. and Freshman Abigail B. placed first and second in the 800 meter and the 1600 meter runs respectively.

The BOYS team had an excellent showing placing 2nd overall to Waverly with 7 first place finishes including both the 4 by 1 and 4 by 2 relays.   In the 4 by 2, LuHi beat Calvary by just 22 hundreths of a second with a time just 9 seconds off school record pace; while the 4 by 1 was just 5 seconds shy of the school record.  Then, Senior Jay M.'s 1st place finish in the 100meter DASH fell short of the school record by only 5 tenths of a second. AND...we’re still not done..., Senior Garrett D.'s shot put 1st place finish was shy of the school record by just 3 feet 4 inches.  Great job, BOYS . . . it’s time to change some of the marks on that track record board in the athletic hallway!!

Congratulations on a fabulous overall LuHi team performance!
