Ladies Tennis advances to 3 and 0 with another victory this evening great job coach Freeman and lady Eagles they played the match under strength due to girls being ill, again lots of heart out on the hard court.

Volleyball won a region match and advanced to 6 and 2, our girls and Coach Pratt did a great job, and they beat the bus problems.

Coach Rhodes and our cross country team gave a strong showing, we are waiting for the official results but our Eagles did a fine job again.  Some of them will run in the Pee Dee Classic Saturday.  

Coach Meinhold, and our swimmers turned in another fine performance and like XC we await the final official results, but our team cut the water like sharks once again.

Roughly 50 athletes left GSSM this evening, and 20 more practiced at our house, they represent our school and values very very well and show our competition that our kids can play on any court or field and compete and win.
