  1. I have watched these fine outstanding young students battle week after week against adversity and hardships. Over this difficult season they have molded together as a formidable team. Like with any athletic sports championship run the competition is tough. Pi Hi students persevered to meet challenge after challenge. I’m proud of what this team has accomplished and wish them success in the future. They deserve our support.
    Go PI HI Samurai!!!
