The Freeport United Soccer Club’s U-14 Boy’s team recently won the Championship of the Patriot’s Challenge Soccer Tournament in Gray. The core of this team has been together for five years now; reaching this outstanding level of play represents the culmination of all their hard work and dedication. The boys went undefeated in four games. Jacob Haldeman (G-8) came back from injury to play in two games on Sunday, scoring in the first one and assisting on two goals in the final. The 2-1 win was a thrill for everyone concerned, and the atmosphere of teamwork, supreme effort and good sportsmanship echoed nicely with the values of our school. 10/19

Once called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb is an innovative pioneer who never stops exploring. Her choreography, which she calls PopAction, intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work. The result combines daring with strict precision in pursuit of the public display of pure movement. Breathtaking and heart-stopping, Raw is a truly unique dance experience sure to amaze. It may cause you to imagine what Extreme Eurythmy could look like! (10/19)
