Senior Alyson O’Lenic took the microphone before our final volleyball home game of the season this week, and read a statement that expressed appreciation for all that our officials have done this fall to let us play the sports we love on this big stage. The message, authored , in part, by Junior Aubrey Nemire, explained that we need to do a better job of not reacting emotionally to the calls made by officials who are doing their very best to be accurate and fair to all parties. Aubrey’s desire to write this message and have it delivered in front of a crowded gym, giving parents, coaches, and players a chance to give our officials a warm ovation, came from her work at the NLL Sportsmanship Summit a few weeks ago. Alyson, Aubrey, and their classmates are working to raise the bar for coaches, players, and spectators alike.

Sure, the soccer ball found the back of the net, but there were other kinds of goals achieved this week at the Project Unified soccer game, which took place before the boys varsity soccer game at Cats Stadium. Students of all ability levels came together to play a game under the lights. A big thank you to Ms. Jessie Minard for organizing the event, and to Ms. Darah, Mrs. Judge, and the LadyKats Soccer Team for coaching and playing in the event.
