Remembering warmer days on this cold one. Kudos to Mr. Gilmore for trusting the mountain bike team and to Ms. Manus and the student council for putting on some great pep rallies this year. Pictured is Dakota Lewis-Brentlinger jumping over Mr. Gilmore.
Our ESHS Esports teams have concluded the regular season and today marks the first round of the playoffs. Both of our Rocket League teams made it into the 64-team seeded bracket, as well as one of our Super Smash Bros. teams. Our League of Legends team ended up ranked #17 in the state, just missing the cut for the 16-team seeded bracket. All five of our Esports teams represented our program and school well, all season long. Wish 'em luck in the playoffs!

It's crazy to think that this great group of students will be graduating in May! We've all seen many of the changes the Class of 2023 have experienced through the years, and we look forward to celebrating their graduation...but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. In the meantime, here's their class picture at Beaver Bridge captured on Wednesday. Only a couple seniors are missing from the photo, but they'll be there in May!

This week our ESHS Esports Super Smash Bros. teams are looking to build on our most solid outing this season. Last week both teams took the best of 3 in an awesome performance, it was truly exciting to watch! The playoffs are just a few short weeks away, so it's a crucial time of the season. Timothy/Zach/Alex look to maintain dominance and climb into the top-10 in the state, while Koben/Chase/Eli look to continue inching closer to making the cut for the playoffs...where anything can happen! Wish them luck as their matches kick off at 4pm today. GO HIGHLANDERS!!!
The Eureka Springs Mountain Bike team finished #1 in the state for Trail Core Hours and #4 overall with performance points added in at the 3rd race of the season in Mountain Home. E.S. finished behind the much larger teams of Bentonville, West Bentonville, and Siloam Springs. It was a tough race for our kids because it lacked the elevation and tech that our team excels at. It was essentially 10.5 miles of high speed weaving through trees. Our high school point scorers for this race were Winona Milwagon (who remains undefeated among 9th grade girls), Dakota Lewis-Brentliner (2nd in JV2), Rowan Beattie (4th in JV2 girls), and Amber Kirk (7th in JV2 girls). Jenna Erickson received 4th overall in the 7/8 girls division. Finn Van Sickle gets the most improved award for this race - he moved from 22nd place to 13th place! Top trail core participants include Dakota, Winona, Kyler Erickson, Aubrey Huntley, and Riley Chapman. Camping was an adventure as we got hit by intense thunderstorms a number of times during the night. At least we were spared the hail that was predicted. The team is so thankful for the delicious chicken prepared by the Chapman family, the amazing warm breakfast made by Roderick Beattie, and the awesome burger lunch made by Derek Brentlinger. A final championship race will be held in Fayetteville on November 6. https://photos.app.goo.gl/vw2gphQz8mAP84Sq5
