It has been a great fall season to be a Big Red!
Over the last 12 weeks our Big Red students and staff have represented our school district well.
It is with great pride that I write this letter to the public, and also extend thanks to those who represent and support our school system with great pride in a very positive manner.
During the fall semester the cross country varsity team earned a conference second place team finish for the girls and conference third place team finish for the boys.
The volleyball girls earned a fourth place finish in conference play.
During the volleyball season, the volleyball program participated in a very successful “Dig Pink” Night.
The volleyball girls wore pink jerseys supporting the fight against cancer and the spectator crowd also filled the bleacher seats wearing pink tee shirts that were sold sponsoring the event.
All of the donations were donated to the American Cancer Society.
The Big Red football team earned a trip to the first round of post-season play.
This is the first post-season qualification for the Big Red football team since the fall of 2009.
The football team represented Big Red nation with pride and respect.
The post-season game in Oskaloosa spoke highly of a successful season.
Prior to the final game of the season, Activities Director, Greg Fisher, announced that the Big Red football coaching staff had earned the District VII Coaching Staff of the Year award.
This recognition is voted on by all of the District VII teams.
This year’s award came with a unanimous vote for the Big Reds due to the merits of respect provided to opposing teams, spectators and officials throughout the season.
The Centerville FFA Chapter volunteered at Little Hands on the Farm at the Iowa State Fair, participated in a horse judging contest with one student placing in the top 50. The FFA also had a very strong and positive presence in the annual Pancake Day parade.
