  • Shout out to our JROTC Air Rifle team, who are competing in the Orion National Air Rifle League. They shot their best score so far this year against the number one team in the league (West Broward AJROTC), but came up 37 points shy of the win.
    Our JROTC Air Rifle team competes in the Distinguished Division of the Orion National Air Rifle League. Sponsored by the Orion Scoring System, the league is a national team league for high school teams and junior rifle clubs. The league has two parts. An 8 week regular season going on now, followed by a single game Conference Title Game for the top two teams in each conference. In each game the teams compete in what is known as a Three-Position Air Rifle match. The match is modeled after Olympic Rifle competitions but adapted to high school age athletes. Each athlete will shoots 10 shots in three different shooting positions, prone, standing, and kneeling. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10 points. The sum of points scored in the 30 shots is the athlete's total. The team score is comprised of the best four athletes from each team.
    For more information on the league, including complete standings, visit https://www.national-leagues.com/
     
    The Air Rifle team also competed in their home Shoulder-to-Shoulder match this past Saturday, finishing in third place with a team score of 926 behind Daleville High School's two teams who scored 962 and 933. Robert Alexander took 2nd Place and Chase Peterson took 3rd place in the individual shooter category which only had 4.9 points separating 1st and 3rd place.

  • For students and parents/guardians new to Smiths Station High School, some information about morning and afternoon traffic flow:
    Mornings - Please keep in mind that students should be in their 1st period class (or for the first day of school, homeroom) by 8:45 EST. We recommend arriving early for at least the first few days until you are comfortable with the routine. Traffic issues do not excuse tardies. Student drivers can enter either the main entrance (at the school sign) or the secondary entrance. Students should park in the main student parking lot, closest to Lee Road 430 (the back parking lot is used for overflow parking only). For parent/guardian drop off, please use the secondary entrance (the one further from the school sign). You will enter the first parking lot that you come to from that direction to drop your child off (please do not park), and turn left to exit back out of the secondary entrance. Neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.
    Afternoons - The bell rings for dismissal at 4:00 EST. At this time, the main school entrance is exit only for students leaving the student parking lot. Students going right should be in the right lane, students going left should be in the left lane. Students cannot drive straight to cross the railroad tracks across from the school. For parents picking students up, you will use the secondary entrance to enter, and follow signs to the first parking lot that you come to from that direction and park in a parking spot to wait for your child. When leaving, you will go left and exit back out of the secondary entrance. Again, neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.
    Please be cautious in both the mornings and afternoons of school staff directing traffic. Also, deputies will be out to enforce school speed zones and other traffic laws.
