The Fall athletic season has come to a close and it was a tremendous success! Over (250) Sells students represented our school on the Cross Country course, Football field, Golf course, Tennis court, Volleyball court, and the sidelines cheering this Fall, and we are proud of them all. 40% of the eligible 7th and 8th Grade student population participated in Fall Sports! This is an impressive amount of our student body benefiting from the life lessons being taught through sport here at Sells.
