To continue the weekend festivities, the student councils from both Sturgis East and West will be hosting the East-West Homecoming Dance from 7-10 at the Holiday Inn on Saturday.
The boys soccer team qualified for the MIAA state tournament for the consecutive year this past week, defeating Rising Tide 1-0 due to a second half goal by sophomore Jake Lamotte. The Storm are now in pole position to attain a favorable seeding and possibly even a home state tournament game for the first round of states, holding a record of 9-5-1. On the other hand, the Sturgis West Navigators (6-7-3) are in need of a win tonight in order to qualify for the state tournament.
The Sturgis East girls soccer team has undergone a challenging soccer season, having endured two close defeats to Rising Tide and Pope John Paul II this past week. Although the state tournament is not in the picture for this year, the wealth of young talent on the varsity roster shows incredible promise for the program going forward. The Storm (3-10) will be motivated to attain their fourth victory of the season against a very tough West soccer team (7-4-3), which will be searching for a comfortable seeding in the state tournament.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to attend these games tonight to show our support and school pride for Sturgis East! Go Storm!
