    • Softball tryouts will be held at the high school game field on Monday, January 18th, from 1-4 pm. Sign-up sheets are in room 307 at the High School and A107 at the 9th-grade campus. Please bring all necessary equipment.

     

    • The QB Club will have State Championship Game shirts available at the following times and locations this week: Tonight from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at the High School Fieldhouse, tomorrow from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at Brookshire's parking lot (look for the orange tent), and on Friday at the front of the gates at Bearcat Stadium prior to Bearcat Sendoff. Long-sleeve t-shirts and hoodies will be available. These will also have the playoff roster on the back. PLEASE NOTE: There is a nationwide shortage of hooded sweatshirts (Hoodies), so our inventory is somewhat limited. We will have all adult sizes, but once they sell out, they're gone. Please plan to get yours early.

     

    • Members of the NAHS will be meeting tomorrow during flex.  We will be discussing the upcoming fundraising project. Please make every attempt to be present.

     

    • The Theatre Dept. will be holding virtual auditions for this year’s One-Act play cast and crew! If cast, you must be able to change your schedule to be in 7th-period Theatre. There are QR codes posted on the callboard outside the theatre classroom and in the front office that you can scan for more information. The deadline for submission is Jan. 15. Sorry freshmen, but you aren’t eligible to participate. There’s always next year!

     

    • Baseball tryouts begin on Friday, January 22nd.  Players need to report to the field at 4:30.  Sign-up sheets will be posted outside of the baseball office located at the high school fieldhouse.  All medical paperwork must be completed and turned into Coach Little before you are allowed to tryout.  Contact Coach Barry if you have any questions.

     

    • Those are today’s announcements. Have a great Bearcat day!
