Boys softball: The Boys battled hard against a skilled, experienced Elizabeth Sutherland in the championship game yesterday. Coming back from a 2 run deficit, the boys tied the game, leaving it to the final inning to decide the Champion. Although the team lost 4 - 2 players should be extremely proud of their accomplishment on and off the field. Mr. Lucas, Mr. Tortola, and Mr. Bradbury would like to thank all the players for the commitment, effort, and most importantly their positive attitudes. Highland Park was well represented in the stands, so we thank everyone who came out to support the team.
