The boys and girls basketball teams qualified for state tournament, SHS junior, Mason Phillips won the State Wrestling Tournament, in his division, for the second year, and the swim relay teams attended state tournament placing 20th and 23rd. Upcoming events included the winter sports recognition assembly, a blood drive, macho volleyball, powder-puff football, and student government leaders planned a campaign titled "Love is Louder Than" to address racism and other issues of inclusion at SHS.
