We just wanted to make everyone aware that our rescheduled Spring Pictures on April 12, also has a conflict with HS Track. The photographers need to depart that day by 11 a.m. Any track students that want spring pictures need to be at the school by 7:25 a.m. so that they can depart at 7:45 a.m. for the track meet. In addition, if there are any three year old preschool students that are wanting pictures, they will need to come in before 10:45 a.m. We apologize for any inconvenience, but appreciate everyone's flexibility in this busy time of year.

The following is a summary of the High School girls' basketball game against the Pike Valley Panthers on Friday. 'The Northern Valley Lady Huskies took on the Pike Valley Panthers in the first round of Substate action on 2/25/22. The Huskies came out with plenty of energy and intensity but struggled to find scoring in the first quarter, digging a quick hole for the rest of the game they were unable to get out of. Fouls were a struggle as well in the first half as many Huskies got into some foul trouble and were forced to sit for long stretches of the game. The free throw line in turn, proved to be where the Huskies were put into the most trouble. The Lady Panthers made 16/23 of their opportunities vs the Huskies’ 9/13. The Panthers were able to force some turnovers by the Huskies that took away scoring opportunities and were able to close down the lane from the Huskies being able to get shots closer to the basket. The Lady Huskies fought through the entire game and played their hearts out to the final horn. Scoring for the Huskies: Austyn Cox- 19, Delaney Sides- 11, Braxton Cox- 9, Mary Baird- 2. The final score of the game was 41-51. The team has grown tremendously over the course of the season and shown an immense improvement over the beginning of the season. There have been some true displays of this team’s abilities in both wins and losses. This team brings back all but one Senior, Savannah Rose, next season and will be ready to make some noise in the years to come.
