Football finishes their season at home next Tuesday for our “White Out”.  Our ladies volleyball team finished their season with a win and ended up 4-3.  All Patriot athletes represented the HMS school community with pride and outstanding character! Please visit the HMS Athletics website for a full calendar of events and plan to come out to support Patriot Athletics this upcoming winter season! I would also encourage you to consider following HMS Athletics on Twitter @HMSAthletics1.  Visit the HMS website if you are interested in trying out for Winter Athletics (Boys/Girls Basketball).
