On the first Friday in November, the Eagles turned in another shutout performance as they recorded their seventh shutout of the season, 41-0 over Brazos Christian. The defense forced six turnovers on the evening as Ben Nicholson snatched three interceptions and Jake Howorth intercepted two more. Trevor Manning recovered another fumble after recovering three last week. Manning was also the leading tackler with ten stops on the evening.
The Eagles opened up a 27-0 lead in the first half and added 14 more points in the fourth quarter. Trevor Manning was five for ten passing with three touchdowns. Vonte Green scored on a 40-yard catch and a 15-yard reception. McCray Kelton scored on a 40-yard reception in the fourth quarter. Hans Barrios led all rushers with 221 yards on 12 carries and scored on runs of 4, 74, and 94 yards. Sophomore Kyle Floris added 108 yards on 15 carries. The Eagles had 475 yards of total offense on the night. Brady Ward was 5-5 on extra points.
The boys will take an 8-0 record into next week's District Title game against Legacy Christian in Beaumont. Kick-Off will be at 7 PM. Friday night would be a great time for a road trip so come out and support the team.
Pre season High School Basketball started last week as both teams took on Frassati Catholic. Both teams came out strong, looking healthy and ready for a great season. The Varisty girls defeated Frassati 61-34, while the boys came up just short 82-74. Coach Steve Krantz took the girls on a weekend retreat to help the team bond and get to know one another better. They came back strong and took on CHSM last night. The girls defeated them early and easily with a 66-21 victory. The boys played Oaks Adventist and also came away with a win, 77-67.

Houston Archaeological Society recognized Sharon Menegaz, on Saturday, October 27th in San Antonio. She received the coveted Francis Stickney Field School Award from Alan Skinner, Awards Chairman for Texas Archaeological Society. This plaque is awarded to an individual for major contributions to the annual TAS summer field school in archaeology. Sharon received the award in recognition of her ten years serving as site secretary for the Youth Group. In the letter of recommendation, professional archaeologist Doug Boyd, head of the Youth Group at field school, said, "When Sharon came on board as the site secretary for the Youth Group, we put her many talents to good use immediately. No training was needed. Her amazing organizational skills and attention to detail immediately raised our standards of quality and accuracy in our excavation field records. The importance of this role - a dedicated Youth Group site secretary - cannot be overstated, and she does it better than anyone else. I find it amazing that Sharon, a teacher in her regular job away from the TAS, is willing to come spend part of her summer vacation working with kids at the TAS field school. It is her skills in working with kids of all ages that make her an amazing and indispensable site secretary."
Mrs. Menegaz has also taken on the role as Education Coordinator for the HAS, developing an incredibly successful education program for adults and children. She revamped all of the educational materials, honed the programs that are presented to adult and youth classes, and organized the hands-on displays of archaeological artifacts that HAS brings into the classrooms. Sharon personally initiated the Texas Master Naturalist interns training materials enabling Master Naturalists to recognize archaeological features when they are in the field and encouraging them to report their findings to the Texas Historical Commission.
She is responsible for initiating and organizing our new Public Archaeology Program at Kleb Woods Nature Center. This program enables adults and especially youth to participate in real archaeology digs on a regular basis. Mrs. Menegaz takes her 7th grade students to this site every year. The students at RCS are so blessed to have expertise and knowledge on a daily basis. Congratulations, Mrs. Menegaz!
For every teacher to attend, we need a parent or grandparent to be a substitute in each class. We need subs that day from 11am to 1:15pm. If you can volunteer, please let us know as soon as possible. You do not have to sub in your own child's class. There are always other classes that need help. Remember, you must have a current background check on file and complete a volunteer application and Ministry Safe Training.
