Flyer Choir Hits High Note At Contest

The Kitty Hawk Middle School 6th grade (beginning) choir competed in the Directors Choir Music Festival and won three awards. The group picked up Superior Stage Performance, Best In Class, and Best Overall Award. These students worked very hard and simply did an incredible job winning the coveted Best Overall Trophy. That's fantastic. We hope to hear great things from these students in the coming years.

T-Bird Bowlers Rock The Alley

The Wagner High School Lady T-Birds for the first time in school history qualified to compete in the State Tournament. While they were knocked out in the first round, the experience proved invaluable for preparing for next year. With the entire varsity squad returning, 2019-2020 should prove to be an amazing season for the Lady T-Birds! 

 Additionally, Wagner High School’s Taylor Wiley qualified to compete in the Individual Boys’ State Tournament. To qualify, Taylor had to rank in top 32 bowlers in the state based on average! 

Taylor continued to dominate by winning the semi-finals match by over 40 pins. The single-game finals match was a great moment of bowling competition. Unfortunately, Taylor fell short 267 to 277 to finish as the 2nd best male high school bowler in the state!

Above all, we are very proud of these accomplishments!
