Coach Leon Hadley's statistics class participated in the Junior Achievement Stock Challenge on Tuesday Feb. 8th at Tulsa Technology's Lemley Campus. Student's are given starting dollar amounts and then placed in a mock Wallstreet setting to trade and sell stocks. The Cute-T-Pi's, consisting of Heather Hampton, Emilee Dutton, and Valerie Hart won third place overall and second place in growth stocks. The session was a great learning experience for the student's to see how the stock market functions.
Congrats from Coach Hadley

Only 4 bouts were decided by score and 2 others were shortened by falls. Coach Henry was back in town in time to see the end of the boys basketball game. -- Ted
