The soccer Squaws earned a 4-0 victory over non-conference Blackhawk Christian on Thursday night using a big home crowd to support the win.
"It was nice to see a great crowd," noted BHS coach Steve Lee. "The boys and girls soccer games are normally scheduled on the same nights alternating home and away but this night was one of the rare occasions when the boys did not have an away game. The crowd was electrifying with chants and Vuvuzelas (soccer horns). I really appreciated the team support."

Although the 2014-15 school year began only a month ago, talk is already turning to the 2015-16 school calendar at Adams Central as the board of education got its first look at the proposed schedule Tuesday evening.
The calendar, which is utilized by all three schools in the county, remained largely unchanged — with school scheduled to begin Aug. 11, 2015, and conclude May 19, 2016. It was a week in October, scheduled as fall break, that caused the most stir during the board’s discussion.
A public hearing on North Adams Community Schools’ proposed 2015 operating budget, held during Tuesday evening’s regular monthly school board meeting, attracted no interest from the public.
The budget, which Business Manager Larry Carty said is “very similar to the last two years on the overall amount” budgeted, sets estimated expenditures for the district next year at nearly $23.3 million.
