Update:  Congratulations to our boys tennis team on a hard fought battle in today's Class B North Regional Championship.  Although we did not prevail as champions, our boys showed great heart, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  This team performed above and beyond its expectations.  To think, we were unsure if we would have enough boys for a team this year?  Please join me in congratulating them on a great season...and a special congratulations to Rob Disch for being named the KVAC Class B Boys Tennis Coach of the Year!

Taking place at the Winslow High School, both the boys and the girls basketball teams will be facing off for the win in a big “battle of the bridge” game. The girls game starts at 5:00, and the boys game following at 6:30. In the past people have had to stand in the doorway on the gymnasium, be sure to get there early to get your seats because they fill up fast! So, mark your calendars for Friday the 29th to come see two competitive, hard-fought games and support your Panthers! 

And, don’t forget the boys JV game on Thursday, 12/28, at 11:30 a.m. in the Waterville High gym.  We expect this to be an exciting game in its own right, and it should be a great warmup for the varsity games games on Friday.
