    Sports & Fitness: The athletic facilities are mostly good. Our new wrestling room is the best facility and it is one of the nicest in the state. Our weight room is not so large but it has a lot of machines to work out on to become a better athlete. We have good workout programs to lift to. We dont have a track or football field lights though so that is pretty lame i think.
