Many of these achievements and other athletic feats were celebrated during a special Chapel held in Memorial Hall on Thursday, May 26.
Highlights of the spring season include four teams earning the title of 2022 Lakes Region League champions: girls lacrosse, baseball, and both boys and girls tennis.
