Stacy Prater, Sherri Newell, Adrienne Baumert, Lauralee Hitzler, Helly Duncan, Terri Koenig, Nico Mason, Jane Morgan and the rest of the Goodie Bag team are AMAZING! Also, Vista Ridge JROTC was a tremendous help. Check out the photos below! Please do not miss out on the fun and join us in February for our next assembly day!
The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy is back at the Air Force Academy! Go Falcons! Great win against Army! We have one more upcoming home game against Colorado State University. We look forward to seeing you at that tailgate!
