This past week saw an end to the spring sports seasons. The girl's soccer team finished up with a third place win over WAHAA Warriors 1-0. The team finished the season with a 4-4-2 and greatly improved through out the season. The track team finished its season with a very successful Kansas City Lutheran Track meet held Saturday at Center High School in Kansas City. A complete list of those who placed will be published once the results have been received. This Tuesday we will recognize and honor all of our athletes from the past school year and the Booster Club Sports Banquet. The banquet will be held in the Fellowship Hall and begin with a catered meal beginning at 5:45. Each team will be introduced and coaches will recap the season. We also will hand out MS letters to our 8th grade athletes and announce the winner of the Les Longhouser Christian Athlete Award. I hope all our athletes and their families will be able to attend.
