  • Cross country teams perform on and off the course

    The Running Rebels have qualified for State a school record three years in a row while the Lady Rebels have their own school-record streak of five years going, but the most recent accolades for these teams only slightly have to do with that success.

  • GCA boys basketball moves to 3-1 with two road wins

    Instead, before the ink could dry on records by the 2016 team, the 2017 squad made their own adjustments.

    By Jeneen Wiche

    If you want strawberries from your garden next season you should do a little mulching now in order to protect the buds that have already been set. These buds were set back in August, in fact.
