The Chargers Volleyball squad lost their match last Tuesday, September 10, in three strongly contested sets, to Region 2 top seed Ipswich (22-25) (21-25) (21-25).

On the gridiron Friday, September 13, Sully Buttes scored a decisive victory over the Herreid/Selby Area Wolverines, winning 46-8 and going 4-0 on the season.

Students and fans took part in a myriad of other activities during the 50th Olympian Days including painting the streets, decorating windows and building floats, the Spirit Breakfast, pep rally, and the Olympic Games.

The Sully Buttes Marching Band was in top form as it took center stage in the homecoming parade, a portent of the success they can expect to achieve in their marching competitions in Chamberlain on September 27 and during Gypsy Days in Aberdeen on October 12.
