  • Extra Points: A loss is never easy

        A trophy or title does not define a person or a team. The Staunton River team has worked so hard to overcome the stigma that was put on them. They have proved to a community that once didn’t believe a State title could ever be in their future that it was.        They have overcome the loss of students, friends, and fellow athletes. They went to a State Championship and played one of the toughest games all season.
        They played all 48 minutes and never gave up.
