Recently, the Elsberry Academic Team met to discuss the upcoming year.
Twelve students attended the meeting along with their sponsor of five years, Mr. Hunter.
The Academic Team will practice on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting during
the second semester. The length of the season all depends on the students. If wanted,
the season can be year long. Mr. Hunter said “I am really excited about the group of
students who have expressed interest. Although we have a fairly young team, I am
expecting great things. It is a great group of kids. The team is open and anyone who
feels they would like to learn more about the team should check out a practice.”
