The first nine weeks are wrapping up at Water Valley High School. Students are studying for midterms and doing any extra credit they can before report cards come out, but most importantly students are begging for fall break to come quicker.
The senior class left Water Valley High School on Sept. 27 headed to Oxford for a college fair. Many tables were set up showcasing the University of Mississippi and the different fields of study that Ole Miss offers such as engineering, general studies, pharmacy and many more. Mississippi State, Northwest Community College, Rust Community College, and Mississippi College were among many other colleges presented at the fair. Seniors were able to talk with representatives from each table and gain valuable information about their school.
Lydia Davis, senior at WVHS stated, “All of the colleges were so extremely welcoming and informative on what they have to offer us. This was a great opportunity for our senior class to prepare for our lives after high school.”
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) club hosted See You at the Pole on Sept. 28. See You at the Pole is a nationwide day of prayer led by students at their schools. Teenagers all around the country meet at their school’s flagpole to worship, dive into the Word, and pray over our country, town, and school. This year’s theme was called aflame and focused on never letting the fire in our hearts for Christ die out. Students at WVHS gathered in groups to pray over specific topics, pray over their grade, and pray individually for themselves. They also heard an encouraging word from chapter 12 of the book of Romans.
Later that night, students gathered at City Park for Saw You at the Pole. This was a continuation of the gathering from that morning, allowing students to dive deeper into understanding how to live a life full of abundance and fire for the Lord. FCA meets every Wednesday at 7:30 am in the WVHS gym and welcomes all students. The FCA officers are Chloe Clement (President), Bri Parrish (Vice President), Jake Crawford (Secretary), and Nethanel Dunn (Treasurer).
The Lady Devils Volleyball team faced off against North Panola on Sept. 26 and Byhalia on Sept. 27 for district games resulting in wins for the Devils. The final win against Byhalia earned the Lady Devils the title of undefeated district champions. The Water Valley Volleyball program has held this title for four years in a row, with this season marking the fifth. Sept. 27 was also senior night for the Lady Devils. Chloe Clement (#5), Ally Wilbourn (#23), and Cora Story (#25) were recognized for their dedication and love for the game by their team and coaches. Chloe and Cora have been a part of the volleyball program for six years with Ally joining in for the past five years. Each of these girls have been such an asset to the program and their leadership will be missed greatly.
The girls then took on Winona on Sept. 29 at home resulting in another win for the volleyball team. The Lady Devils will be back in action for playoffs soon. Be on the lookout for dates and times so you can come and support.
The Blue Devil football team had a bye week this week. This allowed the boys to take time and focus on the fundamentals, adjusting the little things in order to prepare for the next game. The Devils will play at Mantachie on October 7th. Come and support your Blue Devils in their fight against the Mustangs.
After the whirlwind of these last few weeks at WVHS, students and teachers both deserve a nice break. Fall break starts October 6 and ends on October 10 with classes resuming on the 11th. WVHS welcomes fall with this nice time off!
