Together, the High School raised over a thousand dollars through penny wars, money which will be donated to The Make A Wish Foundation. Throughout the week students took part in Pajama Day, Mismatch Day, Backwards Day, Hawaiian Day, and Blue and White Day.

When asked for input on the team, Marissa’s mother Laura stated stated, “We may not win every game but we play with all heart”. Marissa agreeing with
her Mom’s comment said, “The team has a lot of energy off the field, so maybe it’ll help us on the field, and then the team would be better”.
