    Boys’ basketball and wrestling tryouts begin today, Oct. 29 at 3:00. Students interested in trying out need to have a completed physical form, complete the online concussion training, and have a note to stay.

    We begin Red Ribbon Week today.  Monday we will be “Proud to be Drug Free” and will wear red; Tuesday we will “Put a Cap on Drugs” and wear a hat; Wednesday we will “Team Up Against Drugs” and wear a favorite team jersey; Thursday we will “Take a Stand for a Drug Free Land” and wear red, white, and blue; Friday we will “Rally Against Drugs” and 6th grade wears white, 7th grade wears red, and 8th grade wears black (the grade with the most participation gets a free lunch seating.)

    For the next two weeks, Battlefield Middle will be collecting toys for underprivileged youth in several African and Caribbean countries, who without our help, will have no presents to open this upcoming holiday season. The SCA is asking for donations of packaged toys to make this holiday season a magical time for those kids. The gifts do not need to be extravagant and may be purchased from places like 5 and Below or a dollar store. In return, each time a student makes a donation, that student will receive a free seating pass at lunch to sit at the table of their choice.

    As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, today we recognize our art and music teachers who fill our world with color and sound.  Be sure to thank a music or art teacher today.

    The Lady Warriors softball team fell to Chancellor Middle, yesterday. GracieMarie Dent made two excellent catches in left field, and Kylie Watkins had a fabulous double-play at shortstop.

    Yesterday, the boys soccer teams of Battlefield and Chancellor Middle went head to head for the right to own first place in the county. The game was a close contest and the first half ended with a 0-0 tie. Then ten minutes into the second half, Adan Figueroa made a wonderful pass through the defense to Colin Ryan. Colin collected the ball and calmly placed it in the side netting out of the goal keepers reach. This was all the Warriors needed to secure first place in the division as the game ended 1 to 0.

    Both the girls and the boys track teams fell short to Chancellor, yesterday. The girls lost 62-66 while the boys lost 54-64. Leading the way for the girls was Kristina Venzen. Also adding to the girls scoring was Kyla Hall, Lindsey Sweet, Taylor Lee, Morgan Hughes, Tess Humphreys, Alexa Stohr, Jada Culmer, Tameah Crute, Gabby Athy, and Iyanna Seargeant. Gary Minter lead the boys in scoring, and Jalen Gilmore put together a very gutsy performance to earn several key points. Also adding scoring for the boys was Terry Travis, Justin Cole, Dever Gordon, Portius Willis, Marcus Rodriguez, Tracey Green, Kris Branch, Dominic Lucas, and Edwin Asamoah. The boys’ team will finish the regular season at home next Thursday vs Freedom. There is no track practice today.
