    The game between the Bears and Titans last Friday at Martha Layne Collins High School was a game not to miss. The stands were packed and the fans were ready for a battle to the end.  It takes several teams for each school to participate in the sport of football, and one of those teams is pictured at left. They call themselves the ‘ Water Girls,’ and they make sure that the Bears are well-hydrated. Hats off to this team for volunteering time and effort support the Bears.
