The Paxton HS Baseball team held it's 7th Annual Jake's Bobcat Open at Blackstone Golf Course on August 24th, 2019. Bobcat Baseball holds this event in memory of one of their assistant coaches, Jake Taylor, who passed away after a fight with cancer. The Bobcats donate each year to two organizations that were instrumental in Coach Taylor's treatment and care: Cancer Freeze and Pilots for Christ. Both organizations will receive $500 this year from the Bobcat Baseball Team.
Shout out to Mrs. Stephenson’s leadership class at WHS who recently participated in a "Tower of Pasta" challenge. Each group held the max weight for the same time before breaking. One tower was 10-1/2 inches vs. the other tower which was 8-1/2 inches.
Great collaboration, critical thinking, and team work were shown in this hands-on Odyssey of the Mind-type challenge.
