State Bank Athlete of the Week
Congratulations to senior Jessie Magalski who has been  selected as the State Bank Athlete of the Week for volleyball.  Many times, defensive players are overlooked because they do not have the same kind of stats as hitters.  The Eagles are a strong defensive team and Jessie plays a big part in team defense.  This season, she complimented the libero and passed near perfect.  On the last match of the seaon, against a tough Grand Blanc team, Jessie had 11 digs, went 14/14 serving with an ace, and 10/11 on serve reception.  She also steps in and sets when needed and earned 4 assists as well.

State Bank Athletes of the Week
Congratulations to Breyanna Turnipseed, Kailee Corcoran, Austin McNeill and Andy Roberts who have each been named as State Bank Athletes of the Week.
  Breyanna, a sophomore, has been a starter for the Eagles volleyball team all season.  Last week, the middle hitter went 20-22 hitting with 7 kills, 3 blocks, 4-4 serving, and 8 digs against Fenton. On Saturday, she went 22-23 serving with one ace, 11digs, 28 kills, and 6 blocks to help us to make it to gold playoffs in a competitive Grand Blanc tournament.
  
      Austin, a senior, had 10 tackles, 3 solos, and a fumble recovery against Mason for the Eagles football team.  He also graded out at 94% blocking.   



Also a senior and lineman, Andy Roberts has been a mainstay for the Eagles all season.  Against Fenton, Andy had 11 tackles, 3 for a loss and blocked at 97%.
     Kailee set a lifetime PR of 20:57 at the Division 2 MHSAA State Finals on Saturday November 1st. Her performance helped the Lady Eagles to a Top 10 finish at State Meet.
Football Season Ends
The football team played the Division 3 District playoff game Friday evening against visiting Mason. Though the weather proved to be a bigger opponent neither team envisioned heading into the contest, with 50 mph winds along with sleet and snow. The Eagles started off slowly, being down 21-0 at the half, came out firing on all cylinders in the 2nd half. Two drives into the 2nd half and the score was 21-13 and the Eagles had all of the momentum. However, on Mason's next possession they completed one of the few passes either team completed on the night for a 70 yard TD. The score made it 28-13 and despite Linden driving to the Bulldog 3 yard line, that would remain the final score. Unfortunately, the season has come to an end. 
Girls XC –Top 10 Performance at State Meet
A week after earning their third regional title in a row, the Linden Girl’s Cross Country team soared to a 10th place finish at the MHSAA State Finals meet on Saturday, November 1st at MIS, Brooklyn, Michigan. On a very windy, chilly and blustery afternoon, Senior Savannah Ferrara led the team across the finish line coming in 25th place overall (19:10) out of a field of 248 runners earning All-State Honors. Savannah saved her best two performances for the last two races of her high school career. Jordan Holscher crossed the line in 66th place (19:53) coming in second for the team. Taylor Ganger set a life-time personal record at the state meet nearly breaking the 20 minute mark (20:01). She was 82nd overall. Senior Courtney Davis fought her way to the finish posting a 20:20 mark. Kailee Corcoran completed the top five for Linden running a lifetime best of 20:57. Rounding out the team was Maya Gossett and Senior Sydney Ganger who battled the elements and ran with determination. Going into the state finals, the team was not ranked in the top 10. This is an amazing accomplishment!

After a disappointing regional performance the boys' cross country team bounced back with a great effort at the MHSAA State Finals.

Ryan finished 30th and earned all-state while Mikey was 32nd, just two spots removed from that honor.

State Bank Athletes of the Week
Congratulations to Mikey Varacalli (cross country), Ryan Torok (cross country), Ben Thornton (soccer) and Ryan Young (football) who have been named the State Bank Athletes of the Week.

They both finished in the top 10 (5th and 8th) in a field of 304 runners, and they both made their way onto the LHS top 25 list.
