Congratulations to the  Simley Girls Volleyball team for its 3-1 victory over Henry Sibley on Thursday. The Spartans saw their Metro East Conference record improve to 2-1 over a Warriors squad that featured a strong offense that was no match for the stingy defense and quality passing that is the hallmark of this season's Simley team. Simley overcame early errors which led to the dropping of the first set, to dominate Sibley in straight sets showing a wonderfully balanced effort. Once again, all 13 players contributed to the hard-fought win.

Severe Thunderstorms and Tornado Warnings couldn't stop the the Girls Swim & Dive Team from CRUSHING the Tartan Titans at last night's meet!  The Spartans won the meet 102 - 79 and even exhibitioned the last event!  The Spartans have not beaten the Titans for over 6 years! It was an AMAZING Night for this team!!!
