The second semester of school is flying by with March right around the corner. Basketball season is completed and spring sports are in full swing. All of our basketball teams had a wonderful season. Ardmore was well represented in the county tournament, area tournament, sub-region, and regional tournament. All of our coaches and players did a wonderful job and are to be congratulated. Our girl’s varsity team made the Elite 8 in the state by becoming runners-up in the Northwest Regional Tournament. We are very proud of all of our student athletes. The Winter Sports Banquet will be March 2nd at 6:30 in the cafeteria.
The AHS Scholar's Bowl Team placed 3rd at the ASCA District Competition at Wallace State on Friday. The team will now advance to the regional competition to be held on March 13. Mr. Lewis and the Scholar’s Bowl Team is off to a great start and we look forward to the regional competition as well as the county competition.
Our physics students have constructed air cannons and have been using these to supplement their physics class instruction. The classes have done trial runs and calculated the speed of the projectiles and are now making calculations to try and hit a target. The students are doing wonderfully and we may have a few future engineers in the group.
Our MS students continue to excel in archery in their physical education classes. The students are taught safety and shooting technique and are doing wonderfully. Coach Newton and Coach South are doing a wonderful job of instructing our students.
Spring is certainly upon us and athletic events, beauty walks, proms, graduation, and many other activities will be upon us before we know it. All of the extra curricular activities are vital to our students, but we must be careful to not forsake academics which are the reason we have school. I hope everyone has a great week!
