Out for Labor Day, Water Valley High School students returned from a well-needed three-day weekend, and the Lady Devils volleyball teams started the week off strong with a Blue Devil victory! They traveled to Houlka High School to beat the opposing team on their own home court.
It was difficult, considering their student section was roaring with excitement and provided plenty of discouraging words for the Blue Devil teams. The junior varsity and varsity squads overcame and conquered their games against the Houlka Wildcats, leaving their student section in despair and our supporting fans filled with excitement.
Aside from all of the sports action, the senior Class of 2024 made big decisions as they had application day to get them started applying for colleges. The seniors dressed in their futuristic college apparel to show their excitement to apply to their favorite colleges that they one day hope to attend.

Various topics were reviewed during the meeting including community service projects and what it takes to be a club member. The attendees discussed and voted for the officer nominations.
The Interact Club’s 2023-2024 official officers are: President Jake Crawford, Vice President Jenna Trusty, Secretary Evey Brooks, Treasurer Nethanel Dunn, and Sergeant at Arms Summer Webb.

Community members look forward to seeing the interact club helping out this year with many activities planned for this year’s term!
