Bay’s JV team lost for the first time in 25 games, a streak spanning multiple seasons.  Players wait on pins and needles for the rankings to be released this week to see if they are still the #1 team in the state.

Bay is now preparing to face the Normandy High School Invaders this Thursday, 10/4, at Byers Field in Parma, at 7 pm.  

Athletes and Band Members are reminded that even though the game is on a Thursday night, you must go to school, on time, the next day.  Yes, it is a school night.  Yes, Parma is super far away.  And yes,  last time the buses didn’t get back until 11 pm last time.  But it is NOT an excuse to miss school on Friday, 10/5!

The JV/Reserves will play the Invaders at home on Saturday morning at 10 am.  

Players gather for a moment before the game.

Victory WIll be for Bay!
