    To say that our baseball Tigers are on a roll would be a HUGE understatement (read article on the OZONE website).  They have won 12 out of their last 13 games and are now 16-3 on the season and 5-0 in the COC!  They have a big showdown tonight with Webb City and then will host Kickapoo and Aurora on Saturday (weather permitting).  Next week they will be on the road as they travel to Republic on Tuesday and to Branson on Thursday.
    The track Tigers had a great Jason Pyrah meet last Thursday with the boys taking 2nd and the girls taking 5th out of 15 schools!  Today they will compete in the Republic Relays before heading back to Republic next Thursday for the COC meet.
    The soccer Tigers are hosting Monett tonight (Senior Night!) and will attempt to host the Willard Tournament on Friday and Saturday but Mother Nature doesn't seem to agree with our plans!  Next week the girls will travel to Neosho on Tuesday and will host Nixa on Thursday.
    Congratulations to the golf team on their 2nd place finish in the Willard Invitational on  Monday!  They are playing in the COC tournament today in preparation for the district tournament next Monday.
    Congrats to the cast and crew of the One Act, Metamorphosis, for placing 4th in MSHAA State Theatre!  Very proud of this hard working group!
