The boys soccer team brought home the district title as well.
It was a big game on Tuesday, March 9 for the boys with it being senior night and their annual charity game.
The boys beat Corsicana 3 to 1.
That takes the boys to 18-1-1 in the season and 8-0-1 in district.
In district play the boys only gave up one goal all season.
Our first playoff game will be sometime after Spring Break.
The boys and girls soccer teams raised more than $3,000 for their charity during the games against Corsicana.
We appreciate all who supported our cause and it’s great to see our teams work for the good of our community.
We appreciate the hard work Mrs. Malke put into this to be such a success.
