All Saints students had another great week as the Mathletes placed sixth in the region, and the school's super scientists collected nine UCO Regional Science awards.
The Mathletes sixth-place finish out of 43 schools earned the school its best showing. The members also were awarded the most improved team award. Representing All Saints were: Matthew McNeely, Nate Trepagnier, Tam Mayes, Rondell Hames, Madison Guenst and Anna Anthony.
While the math team was setting school records, the scientists set one of their own. All Saints' nine awards were the most ever for the school. Picking up hardware were: Sarah Hake, Michael Johnson, Katie Lenhart, Morgan McCalmon, Noah Peppler, Chris Renaud, Ashley Robinson, Emily Taylor and Matt Walsh.
ASCS swimmers also recently made a splash. Theresa Dunne, Dovie Rayburn, Helen Dunne and Anthony Rayburn had a very busy February. They all had excellent performances in the Jenks Valentine Invitational and the Division II championships. They brought home numerous individual ribbons and medals. All four swim for the Sooner Swim Club.
Not to be out done, the fine arts programs also have been on the move. More than 100 ASCS band and choir members Friday participated in the Private and Parochial School Arts Festival. In addition, 25 pieces of art and photography from ASCS students were judged and displayed.
