In addition to all the athletic events, our students enjoyed the wonderful nightlife that Orlando has to offer.  Some of the events include bowling at Splittsville, Dave and Buster’s, Disney’s Magic Kingdom, and Paramount’s Islands of Adventure.  These activities allowed our athletes to unwind after a hard day of competition and have some fun.  This trip is a wonderful experience for our middle school students and many are already excited to go back again next year!
