Track Season Begins

Track season is off to a running start!  With many of our past track stars returning after last year’s winning season, this year looks to be a successful one as well.

The first meet takes place Wednesday, March 8th; click here for the itinerary, and please come out to support our speediest students.

We Got Game

Congratulations to the Varsity Boys’ basketball team for their performance in last week’s Class AAAA tournament!  They won every game except the last, only narrowly falling to MRA by 3 points in overtime. But, that’s not the end of the story…

Because they placed as runner-ups in the Class Tournament, tomorrow the Varsity Boys’ basketball team moves on to play in the MAIS overall tournament at Mississippi College; they will face Parklane beginning at 7:15 PM. Once again, we need all our Cougar fans to show up, get loud, and cheer our team on to victory.  In this tournament, it’s win or go home, and we want Hillcrest to bring home that golden ball trophy!

Baseball season also “hits the ground running” this week!  We will face Newton tomorrow here at home, time to be announced, and there are 2 more games this week as well.

One more — rather important — thing to remember: 9 Weeks’ Exams take place Tuesday through Friday of this week.  Parents, please remind your athletes and/or fans to spend time studying.  While we want to excel in and support athletics, academics still come first.
