           Varsity Football kicked off their season last Friday with a 42-7 win against the Bexley Lions. The defense stayed tough throughout the whole game, limiting the opposing offensive efforts. Juniors Luke Osborn and Zane Blaisdell each had a sack, while Junior Caleb Lamb had a fumble recovery. Junior Paul Dotson helped keep the ball in our hands with an impressive interception. The Spartans benefited from touchdowns by Junior Jake Amburgy and Senior Hunter Filmore, the latter whom was named one of the top running backs in the area.
