It was a learning experience to be sure for the St. James High School softball squad in 2019.
Now, after gaining much valuable varsity experience, the Lady Tigers are hoping last year’s growth coupled with the addition of some key freshmen will make a positive experience this fall.
The hits returned for the St. James High School football team Saturday, Aug. 15.

The old phrase, “There’s no way to go but up,” certainly applies to the St. James High School football squad in 2020. And now with some young, experienced players to turn to, moving up is the goal for the Tigers as preseason practice began this week.
