Both the bowling teams ended their seasons after competing in the Regional Tournament at Dixie Bowl. Both teams were young this year and will return much of their roster next season. The girls’ team will be led by Aliya March and Kinsey Emerson, while Ryan Petiprin and Truman Baize will return to lead the boys’ team.

Boys’ Basketball
The varsity boys had a productive January. They picked up two more wins through the month, defeating KSD and Christian Fellowship at home. James Risley has led the team in scoring through the month. His 41-point performance against KSD is the school record for boys. The team has continued to grow under the tutelage of Head Coach Richard Butcher. Four games remain on their schedule before they move on to the District Tournament, scheduled to start February 23rd.

The 6th grade boys went 11-4 over the month of January. This team has a three-headed monster that really leads the team in Isaac Davis, Lake Mackin, and Michael Patterson.

The 5th grade boys’ basketball team had a very solid January, going 8-4 over the month. They have been led through the season by Stevaun Butler and Ian Von Feldt.

The 4th grade boys just about finished up their season in January. Their 22 games are the most they’ve played in a season. The team was led by Tyler King and Nate Zimmerman.

The 2/3 boys’ team had a tough January, dropping three games during the month. Two of the three losses were by two points.

The K/2 basketball team began in January and though they have yet to win their first game, they improve with each passing week. This group of boys and girls play their games in the St. Matthews League on Saturdays and Sundays and they are coached by Tim Patrick and Nicole Butcher.

Girls’ Basketball
The varsity girls also played well during the month of January. They picked up two wins and the season was looking promising until freshman star Alexis Nelson went down in a close loss to Brown. Before she was injured, she had set a school record, scoring 45 points. She also set the state record for number of free throws in a single game, going 25-42 from the line. The girls have three games remaining on their schedule for the season.

The 7/8 girls’ team ended their season after suffering two losses in the OSL tournament against Anchorage and KCD. The girls improved by leaps and bounds this year with each game, winning five games. They played great all year and should hold their heads high, as they were all committed to the team. Maggie McGraw won the hot-shot competition and Meredith Fleming took home second place in the free-throw shooting contest held at OSL.

The 5/6 girls’ team had a fabulous January and Coach Shannon Ragland did a great job with the team over the season.

The 3/4 girls’ team played a tough schedule with a lot of inexperienced players, but their effort increased throughout the month of January. Coach Rebekah Runyon praised the girls for their play following each game.

The Wyvern swim team has competed at a high level in the pools. Both teams are preparing for the Regional meet that will offer everyone the opportunity to advance to the state meet later this spring.
