First Open House Night is Wednesday

The first of two Open House evenings for parents and guardians will be held Wednesday from 7-9:30 p.m. To ease traffic congestion, parents and guardians whose students have a last name beginning with the letters A-L are suggested to attend Wednesday’s Open House, while those with last names M-Z are encouraged to come Thursday, September 11. However, parents who have a calendar conflict with their designated evening may attend on the other date. (Parents do not need to inform the school if they are coming on a different night.) On the mornings after each Open House, the school will operate on a late arrival schedule with classes beginning at 10:30.

Friday’s Varsity Results


Stevenson 35, Indian Trail 0: The host Patriots (1-0) rolled in their season opener, which was called less than 4 minutes into the second quarter due to lightning delays. Stevenson’s defense was stifling, holding the Hawks (1-1) to one first down. SHS led 21-0 after the first quarter, behind TD runs from Tyler Vincent (6 yards), Jack Joseph (25 yards) and quarterback Willie Bourbon (4 yards), who was 6-of-10 passing for 137 yards. Bourbon connected with Cameron Green on a 19-yard scoring strike that made the score 28-0, and Joseph ran it in from 7 yards out before the lightning delays hit. –  Daily Herald | Watch the SBN Video
