Tomorrow, our Shepherds Eagles Volleyball team will compete in the Special Olympics State Volleyball Tournament held in Waukesha.
Today, Coach Sarah Kolkman led a Spirit Rally to cheer on the team. Teachers, staff and students were all encouraged to wear blue and orange to show their support.
Enjoy the pictures of the event!

|I'm not sure Mr. Kolkman's height is an asset in this game...|
|The second event is Over/Under. Girls against boys. Girls won!|
|The last event was called Garbage - students against athletes. The goal was to end up with the least amount of balls on your side of the court. Students won!|

|Coach Kolkman ended the event with a prayer for the team, "Whether we win or lose, I pray that our actions and attitudes reflect You, Oh Lord."|
