The much anticipated Pickleball Tournament once again proved to be a success, providing students with challenging games and a fun way to beat the stress of final exams and other end of the year obligations. This year's event was the eighth pickleball tournament sponsored by the District's Physical Education Department.  Not only is the annual tournament plenty of fun, but it also offers students many health benefits. Studies have shown that pickleball provides participants a low risk, low impact, cardio workout which burns calories, boosts mood and mental health, and sharpens hand-eye coordination. Physical Education Teacher Claire Campbell thanked all contestants who participated in this year's tournament, offering special accolades to the seniors. "We will miss their competitive spirt next year,"  stated Mrs. Campbell. "We wish them a wonderful future!"
