With homecoming just a day away, the village is abuzz with activity. Titan athletics have been putting up some strong performances as well; the varsity football team took down Parkland in their own house on Sept. 22 in a dominant 56-9 win, with 50 of those Titan points being scored in the first half alone.
The team hopes to continue their winning ways by ho sting Glenn on Friday (Sept. 29) evening, as they currently hold 1st in the Central Piedmont Conference (CPC) standings.
The girls varsity volleyball team went 2-0 last week, taking down East Forsyth 3-1 at home on Sept. 19 and Mount Tabor 3-0 on the road on Sept. 21. They also faced Parkland at home on Sep. 26 and will face Glenn on the road Thursday, Sept. 28.
The boys varsity soccer team has also continued to roll, with a 2-1 double overtime win over Reagan at home on Sept. 18 and a 6-0 road win over Davie on Sept. 20. The boys faced R.J. Reynolds on the road on Sept. 25 and top conference rivals East Forsyth at home on Sept. 27. After a brief break from games, they will take on Mount Tabor on the road on Oct. 4.
Every day this week, the village has been decked out in spirit week-style chosen by the students, with Monday being “Anything But A Backpack” Day, Tuesday being Barbie/Neon Day, and Wednesday being West Coast versus Wild West Day. Today is Generations Day for the Titans, where freshmen will come dressed as babies, sophomores as toddlers, juniors as adults and seniors as senior citizens. Friday, Sept. 29, is the annual Green and Gold Day, as well as the annual homecoming pep rally, followed by the 2023 homecoming football game. Show up in your best school spirit.
The homecoming dance will be held the following night, Sept. 30, in the new gym for all students who purchased tickets.
Early action and early decision college application dates are fast approaching. Seniors, remember to make sure that all the material for your early schools is submitted by their respective deadlines.
The performing arts departments start performances again soon. Save your dates for the fall one-act plays, “Desdemona In The Afterlife” and “The Taming of the Shrew” Oct. 13-14, the fall chorus concert on Oct. 18 and the full-length fall play, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged,” Nov. 15-18.
Let’s make the end of this homecoming week a good one, Titans.
