The tenth Annual Clash of the Titans was held Saturday as Titans from all fall sports and clubs gathered for scrimmages and pancakes.
Titan pride and family was in full affect as families of athletes rose early to see the progress the teams have made. Some teams, such as football, started as early as 7am.
After Tennis, Soccer, and Football wrapped up their practices they were served a hearty breakfast by the Varsity Cheerleaders.
Titans then packed into the Performing Arts Center for Debby Katzfey’s presentation on MSHAA rules for all students in activities as well as an introduction to requirements to play at the next level through NAIA or NCAA schools by counselor Jennifer Ailshire.
Names were put to faces as Katzfey introduced all the head coaches for each team.
Once the business was all handled Katzfey touched on the the ten years the school has been open and what the fall teams have planned to give back to the comuunity that once helped wet opened. Football players were shown helping at Hope House and the Girl’s Golf team announced they will go apple picking and then donate the fruits.
Titans were also given an update on Sophomore Sam Smith’s condition. After giving a very emotional speech last year Smith chose to write a letter read by Katzfey. Over the summer Smith tested negative for any sign of disease. His surgeon was also able to put in his prosthetic leg. Although he still walks with a bit of a limp he says, “I like to think of it as swag.”
