  • Congratulations to the Varsity Football team as they defeated the Bonnabel Bruins, 40-6 in their final tuneup before the regular season.  Offensively, Grant Jordan lead the attack with 3 TD passes, 2 of which that went to Junior receiver Luke Laforge, and one that was hauled in by Junior Luke Besh. Defensively, the Blue Jays were lead by the front four with seniors Sonny Hazard and Ethan Branch applying constant pressure, all while causing 3 turnovers and multiple quarterback sacks. Great job getting the 2019 season off to a fast start! Go Jays!
