SHS Sports Announcements:
SENIOR ATHLETES: Reminder SHS Senior Athlete's Parents must be current Booster members (joined or renewed Booster membership this school year) in order to be eligible for one of the scholarships awarded at the end of the year. The Booster's scholarships are awarded like a lottery. So long as the student is in good standing (grades and behavior), and plans to attend an accredited college or trade school, their name is placed in the drawing, for one of several scholarships. To JOIN Booster simply download the FORM and mail it in, or turn it in at concessions.
All athletes are encouraged to get their physical at this time. The cost is $20.00 and checks must be made out to Smithfield High School. You must have a VHSL form completely filled out and signed by your parents. You can get the form from the office or on the school website.
