Our Olympic sports continue to bring high effort to training for their anticipated seasons. In light of Thanksgiving, we are extremely thankful for your commitment and resiliency this fall! November led to seeing the long awaited return to competition with Men’s and Women’s Basketball beginning their season schedule. It is great to watch our Hawks pick up where they left off and bring home victories again.

Good Luck With Finals Hawks!
