A Few Good Lower School boys are needed to man water stations during the 5K Race to Remission on our campus this Saturday, April 2.
Volunteers should report to Stokes Stadium at 8:00 a.m. to get assignments. Responsibilities will be fulfilled by 9:30 a.m.
The Race to Remission was created by students last year to support classmate Lin Zheng, who was a patient at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Lin is recovering from a second marrow transplants and is still being treated periodically at the hospital. St. Jude's has sanctioned the race as an official fund-raiser and is a partner in producing the event.

The MUS Lower School Civic Service Organization planned and put together a successful 3 on 3 tournament on Friday, February 12. In total the tournament raised $250 for Perea Preschool. The entry fee was $5 per player, and 15 teams -- 6 from 7th grade and 9 from 8th grade -- competed. The seventh grade had an intense set of games that led to the following teams crowned as 1st and 2nd place finishers for the division.
7th First Place - Roderic Lewis, Ayman McGowan, and Edwin Shy
7th Second Place - Drew Burnett, Henry Nickey, and Wes Vanderslice
The eighth grade tournament was a thriller and the championship game came right down to the wire. These teams placed 1st and 2nd for eighth grade teams.
8th First Place - Edward Erb, Charlie Gilbert, Caleb London, and Charlie Street
8th Second Place - Bo Abbay, Blake Sexton, Connor Hamilton
After the division champions were crowned, the seventh and eighth grade placing teams played the final games. In a close game, the seventh grade 2nd-place team defeated the 2nd-place team in eighth grade competition to take 3rd place on the podium with no prize other than bragging rights. In a very intense game, the eighth-grade champs defeated seventh-grade champs in an overtime three-point shootout. After both teams made their 3's, Ayman McGowan missed his shot for the seventh-grade team, and Caleb London stepped up for the eighth-grade team and made his shot to claim the championship and a $10 Chick-fil-a gift card for each team member.
