SaJHS Wrestling

Submitted by jolynn.ford on

         Our school’s wrestling team has done extremely well, especially considering that it’s only our first year. Every day after school our team has practice from right after school till five o’clock. The practices start with warm ups and agilities for about ten minutes, then we drill for another ten. Once all of that is over with, the coaches teach us our moves for the day. This will typically take up the remainder of the practice. The final ten to fifteen minutes are filled with constant conditioning.

Submitted by jolynn.ford on

This year for the school musical the directors, Mrs. Brooksby and Mrs. Stubbs, have decided to put on the production of “Annie.” Students were trying to keep their grades up all December so they would have a better shot at getting a part in the musical. Auditioners were practicing for days to get the song they chose to preform just right for the judges and directors.
