Multiple Teams · Moving Forward


The Spartan Football Team took another one on the chin this past Friday when they traveled to Batesville to close out the regular season.  A dynamic Bulldog passing attack along with a Spartan offense that was its own worst enemy led to a big win for Batesville. Fortunately for the Spartans they get at least  one more opportunity to display their talents as they open up sectional play this Friday when they host Mooresville.  Kick off at Spartan Field is set for 7:00 p.m.
