This Week

Football

The Polars travel to Cameron, Wisconsin for a non-district game on Friday, September 16 to play Ashland Wisconsin High School.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00pm. This game was added to the schedule due to a void created by St. Paul Humbolt, suspending its varsity program. 

Fan Bus This week:  We will offer a fan bus for students, alumni, faculty and staff for Friday’s game in Wisconsin.  The cost is $8.00 per person 5 years old and above.  This will also cover the $3.00 ticket per person to enter the game. Reservations and payment will be taken at the main office or the athletic office until Thursday, September 15 at 4:00pm.  There will be chaperones on the bus and for the event.

Football Schedule Update: Our homecoming game date has been changed to Saturday, October 8.  Kickoff is at 12:00pm.
