On behalf of the entire ACS community, we want to say that we are so profoundly proud of every student and athlete that took part in 6 different events this past weekend. We are also extremely proud of the Girls Basketball Team winning the SAISA Girls Tournament hosted here at the Scorpions Den.
Here is a recap of the weekend:
