The Lower and Middle School's fall sports teams were celebrated at a lively pep rally in the gym on December 8.
Three awards were given out for each soccer and volleyball team. The first was the Cougar Award, which was given to a player for great sportsmanship, ethical play, and for embodying the role of a teammate. The second was the Most Improved Player Award, which was given for the players who consistently worked to improve their skills during the season. The third was the Coach's Award, which went to the student who showed respect to the team and coach, had strong work ethic, and was a reliable and accountable member of the team.
