Elementary & Junior High News

Coach Zakk Revelle & JH Boys Basketball Team spent Saturday afternoon in fellowship at the Sul Ross University vs. Concordia University basketball game. "Not every coach gets the unique opportunity to have the team they played for in college play close enough to home to be able to attend a game," said Coach Revelle. "Not only did I get that opportunity, but I got the opportunity to take my team to watch with me. What a true blessing! Lobos Coach Carrol and the team treated us great, and my team had an awesome time regardless of the outcome. I enjoy doing things like this with my players because they will remember times like these with their teammates more than they'll remember the wins or losses we have," Revelle continued.  Pictured above are FA and SR athletes in a post-game photo op.
