LHS Athletic Trainer Deirdre Scotter called the one-day event an unqualified success, expressing great appreciation to the staffers and volunteers who made it possible.

"In just a little over three hours we were ablt to provide athletic physicals to 445 students," she said. "Special thanks goes to our volunteers: Jodie King, Heather Gee, and JoCarol Cox. Without your help we would've been short of workers and unable to get done as efficiently and quickly as we did."

Scotter also praised "the incredible physicians from Longview Orthopaedic" who lent their time and expertise.

"Dr. Jordan Stanley, Dr. Charles Grooters, as well as Physician Assistants David Stanley and Ruston Bray saw more than 100 kids apiece," she said. "We appreciate your continued support of Lobo Athletics."
 
Athletic Director John King said "our strong community is invaluable to our entire athletic program."

"We are grateful to our many community partners for their generous and faithful backing of our excellent student-athletes," he said.
