Our first season is complete and both schools did a great job on the field as well as in the class room. The Skyridge 8th grade football team went undefeated in league and also took top honors at the league football extravaganza. In Girls Cross Country Skyridge and Liberty finished 2nd and 3rd in the District meet. Liberty had the District champion in the 6th grade race and Skyridge the champion in the 7th grade race.
We had 55 girls compete in Cross Country at Skyridge and they maintained a GPA of 3.51. 34 girls competed at Liberty with a GPA of 3.48. In football 27 Liberty boys competed with a GPA of 3.02. At Skyridge 26 players had a GPA of 3.0.
Overall, 142 student athletes competed at Skyridge and Liberty during the first season. They had a combined GPA of 3.36.
