The Lions will play at 6pm on Thursday against Janesville in the 1A semifinal round, and there will be no school for this date as well. The Middle School Concert that was originally scheduled for November 14th has been rescheduled for Thursday, November 21st.

If the team wins on Thursday they will play in the championship game at 6pm on Friday, November 15.  This date was already on the calendar as a no school day due to teacher in-service.  If the team wins Thursday evening, in-service would be rescheduled to a later date.  If the team does not win the Thursday second round game, teacher in-service is tentatively planned to go as scheduled on Friday but start at 10 am.
