Girls varsity bowling vs. Greenville

After already having a few wins against the Greenville Yellow Jackets, the FHC team was short two bowlers on the roster. During the match, the team only competed with four instead of five bowlers and left the girls disappointed after losing a tough match.

Girls JV basketball vs. EGR

The girls JV basketball team faced off against the EGR Pioneers in what would become a long, close game. EGR would prove to be one of FHC’s toughest opponents throughout all four quarters. The game was tied after regulation and the first overtime. The Rangers would fall short by a couple of points and suffer a crushing and exhausting defeat in the second overtime.

“The whole game we were neck in neck so pressures were extremely high. And the energies were all over the place. It was a lot of back and forth. When they would score our energies would fall and vice versa. At the end of the fourth quarter, we let our guard down a little too much and we ended up tying it up. Suddenly we were down again, but then Addyson Casten was fouled. The time was over but they still let her shoot, she made both her free throws which put us in double overtime. Mistakes were made which ended in a sad loss,” said Gabby Thompson.

This quickly changed when the Eagles came back to turn the game around by scoring six goals in the third period while the Rangers watched from the penalty box.

FH gymnastics vs. Kenowa Hills

This matchup was a tough one due to both teams struggling to acquire points throughout the meet. The Forest Hills gymnasts said that despite the spirits being high, that was not enough to carry them to a win. With this meet taking place midway through the season, the gymnasts had not had a chance to fully refine their skills, and that ultimately led to their downfall at this competition. Even though many FH gymnasts qualified for regionals at this meet, the FH gymnastics team came up short of Kenowa losing by only three points, with the final score of 127-125.
