Christmas time is coming and that means two weeks off for students to relax, eat, and open presents, but instead of spending holidays in hometown San Antonio, Johnson students have different plans ahead.
In the sixth year of school history, the Johnson football team played in the state semi-finals for the first time. Coming into the season with no playoff wins, no one expected the jags to make it past the first round of the playoffs,let alone make it to the final four in the state.
In the recent district showdown, a brave group of runners climbed hills, fell in ditches, ran with flags, and painted themselves blue in the name of one of the least recognized sports at Johnson-cross country.
Johnson football games are always a memorable experience for students and fans. And now that some new rules have been put in place, the experience can be more enjoyable and safer as well.
The Jaguar cross country runners had been preparing for their first meet through the spring and summer months of 2013, and the rigorous training and dedication that the runners gave to their sport paid dividends for the team.
Five years down and many more successes to come, Jag athletics have many reasons to be proud in 2013.
