In an issue of the Southeast Valley Ledger that focused on Florence Unified School District, FHS FFA stole the spotlight as the top story of the issue. We are proud of Ms. Rudow and her students for representing FHS so well and showing off just a few of the great parts of their program!

The FHS Cheer team competed in Pom, All Girl Stunt and Show Cheer at the AIA Division 3 state championships. Both Pom and Show Cheer took 3rd, and the All-Girl stunt team took 2nd. These three results led to an overall state runner up finish for the team! Congrats to coach Annie, Amanda and Dora, as well as all of the outstanding young ladies on the team. Best of luck to the team as they travel to the national competition in California this spring!
The FHS Wrestling team traveled to Mesa Skyline for the Coyote Open in December. Nicolas Arnold and Brady Susel each took 2nd place in their respective weight classes. While Nathan Lamas took 1st place and was named the Tournament MVP. We wish them luck as they finish their season strong and head to sectionals and state!
