• We had to compete with Mother Nature again this Saturday. The Dynamites played great in their last game of the season. Superlights & Varsity had victories over Monee, with losses by our Superlights & JV. With the weather we were dealing with in the afternoon, the tough decision not to proceed with the scheduled 8th grade day was made. We sincerely apologize to all of our dedicated 8th graders and their families for this. We are working on plans to reschedule, and will post info when we have it.
