Langston student Caden Nelson is hosting an Ornaments4Orphans tree at the school.
People from Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya created the ornaments we are selling. Buying an ornament enables them to provide for their families. They are able to pay rent, put food on their tables, pay their children’s school fees, purchase medicine, and other necessities which improve their overall standard of living.
Ornaments are on sale beside the main office. Choose the ornament you want and pay at the front desk. Each ornament is $10 and paperbead necklaces are $20.
Langston students can earn up to 2 hours of Community Service for buying ornaments.
Please bring in your old newspapers for Michaela Raven’s project. There are several rescued puppies in need of them. There are boxes by the front door and the drop off door. Every foot of bundled paper equals 1 hour of community service.
Sports News from Coach Deas
Your 2014 Langston Chargers boys’ basketball team kicked off the regular season with a victory over Spartanburg Day on Friday Nov. 14 at Rocky Creek. The Chargers posted a 28-24 win over the visiting team. Javon Douglas led all scorers with 8 points, with Cole Holliday chipping in 6, Luke Calvert, Grant Dowis, and Kai Dowden scoring 4 each. The Charger defense was key to keeping the Griffons from rallying late in the fourth quarter.
The LCMS boys’ team traveled Tuesday to play Lead Charter. What looked to be a challenging game due to the size of the team, the Chargers started the game quickly with the first basket off the tip and continued to run the floor and out score Lead 12-8 in the first quarter with Cole Holliday providing half of the Chargers points. The second quarter saw the Charges defensive effort, rebounding, and scoring continue as the team outscored Lead 15 – 6 to take a halftime lead of 27-14. The depth of the team showed as every player got in the game and contributed to another victory. The Chargers defense and fast breaks allowed them to defeat Lead by a final score of 54-35. Javon Douglas led the way with 16 points, with Sam Johns and Cole Holliday each scoring 8 points, also contributing was Grant Dowis with 6, Krys Simms and Caden Nelson with 4 each, and CJ Farr and Luke Calvert with 3 each.
The Chargers host Spartanburg Prep on Thursday Nov. 20 and will host Bob Jones Academy Monday Nov. 24 at Rocky Creek – 5:15. Please continue your support of the team; the boys appreciate the crowds!
