Looking back on the 2014-2015, school year, the annual Pickleball Tournament once again proved to be a tremendously popular activity among the High School's student body. Pickleball, in case you didn't know, is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. According to tournament organizer, Physical Education Teacher Claire Campbell, a record number of teams signed up for the 3-bracket tournament,  "Whether playing and competing with your best friend, or just the anticipation of  the tournament, it always has a large number of students participating for the coveted "King/Queen Pickler" t-shirts and bragging rights," stated Mrs. Campbell.  This was the 13th year the Physical Education Department has sponsored  the tournament which is primarily played during activity periods in the spring.   The Pickleball season culiminates with a "Championship" game also played during an activity period. Students are invited to watch the championship games and to cheer on their favorite competitors.Many thanks are extended to the Physical Education Department for their efforts in making this fun, wholesome activity available to SCA's students. We are looking forward to the 9th Annual event!
