Freshman Kylie Lynn Hayes, won the Bronze Medal (in her division) at the ISAA Pro-Am Tournament in Des Moines, Iowa in January. There were a total of 610 shooters from throughout the United States and several other countries. Archers shot a total of 90 plus arrows in the two day event. We can add this accomplishment along with the Kansas Female Athlete of the Year. Way to go Kylie!

Congratulations to senior Shanlii Dace who double qualified for the Kansas Scholastic Press Association state competition in May. 

Shanlii earned 1st place in the Student Life Photography category at regionals. The contest required students to capture candid moments of student interaction and emotion inside the school.

Super Study Hall. Seniors Trinity Taylor and Kaylee Hawkinson laugh at Hawkinson's dance moves during study hall, also known as Seminar. They have sat under the desk while they relax and work on homework during Seminar almost every day since the beginning of the semester. "It's comfy, and it helps me be able to focus if I'm working on homework or taking a nap," Taylor said. Photo by Shanlii Dace.  

In addition to her photo, Shanlii also competed in the on-site writing competition for captions earning an honorable mention.
