Regan Oster also had 12 digs and Avery Budde 11. Your Cougars will travel to Freeburg tomorrow night to face the lady midgets...freshman starts at 5, JV at 6, and varsity at 7. Come out and support Cougar Volleyball!

Yesterday before the great storm from the south rolled through, your Cougar Golf team was swinging around some lightning rods trying to appease the rain gods. Apparently the Rain dance of 2021 held the storm off long enough to let the Varsity and JV Golf teams finish their rounds. Keira "the Killa" Veizer was all smiles as she skipped around the club house, carding the lowest round for the Cougars. Kierstan "the Krusher" Lampe was extremely excited the ball was flying straight. You probably didn't know this but the ball's willingness to cooperate in golf makes scoring low numbers a much easier task. Ole Krusher hung on for the cougars and pounded that ball down the fairway. Finishing as one of the lowest scorers for the cougars. Lets not forget about JV!! Oh no they were out on the course smacking that little white ball around as well. Abi Wilson was the low scorer yesterday for the Cougar JV team. She was finding fairways and short grasses all over the course. Wiley Riley was having a great round as well. She just walked around that course hammering that little ball every chance she got. She beat that ball into submission about the 3rd hole and walked ever so easily about the course admiring the landscaping and wildlife. Joran Schiefer "Jordo for Shorto" almost got carried away by a pack of mosquitos. Thankfully they were vaccinated and weren't carrying West Nile. The Cougars are back in action this afternoon at Oak Brook G. C. Let's Go Cougars.

September is childhood cancer awareness month. TeamEli will be at the Central-Freeburg game on Friday night raising funds for St. Jude Research Hospital. We will have some freebies and goodies for the kids. Any type of donation will enter your name into a raffle for a St. Jude themed basket. The lucky winner will be announced at the beginning of the fourth quarter and must be present to win. Come on out and enjoy the Roots Rivalry game and stop by and see us at the St. Jude table. Go COUGS!

HOSA would like to thank all who signed up to donate. Appointment cards and permission slips have been distributed. The response was so overwhelming, that we exceeded the number of appointment slots available. Donors were scheduled on a first come first serve basis so if you signed up, but did not receive an appointment card, it was due to there not being any more slots available. Please know that your offer to help is greatly appreciated. There will be 3 more blood drives this year and we highly encourage all those individuals to sign up at a future one. For those who are scheduled to donate, you must bring your student ID with you to the east gym at your appointment time. Be sure to eat before donating and drink adequate fluids throughout the day before and after donating. Included with your appointment card is a note stating how to pre-register. This needs to be done sometime tomorrow morning and will help the blood drive stay on schedule so please be sure to do that. Also, any athlete who is currently in season, you should not donate during this drive. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Boruff.

Homecoming Court Pictures will take place on Thursday, September 16th during the 8th hour.
