We will practice until 4:30 pm, but if you do not have your gear at school, you do not need to stay. 


Congratulations to the GMS Lady Devils softball team. They defeated the Vance Lady Vikings in a rainy game by a score of 13 to 11. Coach Ricker was so excited about the effort and determination by her team.

Wrestlers receiving medals

Congratulations to Hunter Mason for winning the Spring Youth Nationals this past weekend and to Kodiak Cannedy for coming in second. LeAndre Dabney also had a very good weekend and we are proud of him giving it his best effort and coming up just a little short of a medal. There were wrestlers here from all over the Eastern half of the U.S.!

Hunter and Kodiak will be competing in one of the nation's largest tournament this coming weekend at Virginia Beach. There will be wrestlers from all over the United States and it may well be the largest middle school tournament at this level. GMS has never had wrestlers compete at this tournament or at this level! Please wish them both luck!


The GMS Boys golf team earned a victory at Smoky Mountain Country Club on Thursday, March 15th. They defeated Newport Grammar 196 to 237.

The GMS girls came up a few strokes short and lost to Newport 124 to 121.
