SGA Elections—It is time to set our class officers for next year. We will be needing a president, vice president, Secretary, Treasurer, and up to 4 class representatives for each grade level. If you have never participated in SGA you should consider it if you would like to be a part of the decision making process for many different school projects. SGA members are frequently used to help in many different capacities around the school and are our best representatives and leaders when decisions and policies need to be made or changed. Consider being a part of a great group with the power of change…..make your voice heard!
FITNESS LAB WILL BEGIN TUESDAY, MAY 29 AT 7:00AM IN THE HHS GYM FOR ALL ATHLETES—Athletes can earn 20 points towards their letter jackets (equivalent of JV points) for attending Fitness Lab each summer. We are looking forward to building our SUMMER TEAM!
For a student athlete to receive credit for Fitness Lab the student must be present for 12 of the 15 scheduled labs. A student athlete may miss three (3) of the 15 labs for any reason (sickness, family vacation, 4-H, travel sports events, school events, etc.) and still receive credit for Fitness Lab. If a student athlete is not in attendance for 12 of the 15 schedule labs, the student will not receive credit.
A Hagerstown High School Varsity Head Coach will have the option to appeal a situation due to Hagerstown High School athletic events. The Varsity coach would present the case to the Fitness Lab instructors and the Athletic Director. The decision made by the instructors and Athletic Director is final.

Sectional Champions: Boys Track
With a complete team effort, boys’ track won the Connersville Sectional, claiming the first boys’ track and field sectional title in HHS history. The Tigers won six events and advanced eight athletes in eight events to the Franklin Regional on the wet and windy evening, edging runner-up Rushville by a single point.
The 4 x 800 team of Alexander McKee, Seth Richards, Kaleb Slagle, and Logan Tuttle set the tone for the evening, holding off a strong Rushville squad and dropping ten seconds off their season best time to claim that event. A short time later, Slagle won the 1600, and as the meet progressed and the rain and wind set in, the Tigers earned sectional titles in the 300 hurdles, Robinson, the 800, Tuttle, and the shot put, Ryan Golliher. The Tigers then finished the evening in fine fashion and secured the narrow win as McKee and Tuttle teamed with Dylan Napier and Robinson to win the 4 x 400.
Coach Kent Gray provided commentary, “Obviously our big guns came through tonight winning six events, but what an effort by our seniors and young kids alike. Seth Richards was amazing in the 4 x 800 and 300 hurdles, Blake Blevins came through big in the disc and shot. Gage James jumped well and then blasted his leg of the 4 x 100, made a great pass to Branton Payne, then two seniors, Krisition Bates, and Jalen Oliver took it home and finished above their seed. Jaylon Favorite came out of the slow heat to place in the 400, and then Slagle and EB Halcomb went two, three in the 3200. Not all of the times and distances were great due to the weather, but I’m so proud of our boys and so appreciative of the great job coaches Tom Drake, Brandon Lester, and Betsy Swimm have done with their position groups. It was a great night.”
