    Hey Mav’s: Wonderful job to the Wrestling Mavericks on tying Plank Thursday evening 48 to 48! Earning points for Murphy's varsity team were wins by forfeit made by Austin Crawford and Bobby Frierson. Varsity pins were made by Lincoln Sondgeroth, Royce Williams, Keller Ralson, Mason Davis, and Alex Penley. Benson Witkowski and Beckett Moriarty won by decision, which means they outscored their opponents. For the exhibition matches, both Carmyne Manna and Lohith Kunapareddy pinned their opponents. Also, in correcting the wrestling announcement from earlier this week, our apologies to Royce Williams who had a pin in the match against Bednarcik.  Come cheer on your wrestlers Monday when they take on Traughber. Excellent job wrestlers and good luck Monday!! 

    The 7th grade boys basketball team traveled to Plank last night and brought home a pair of victories. The boys won the first game by a final score of 42-17. The Mavs were led in scoring by Adyn Mackey with 16 and Tavian Talton with 12. Mason Trayser, Alex Tran, Jack Malm, Aiden Kuhns and Kayden Davis-Taylor also scored in the game. The boys stepped up again in the second game winning by a final score of 37-12. Chase Accardi led the Mavs in scoring with 11 followed Carter Kaufman with 10 and Kayden Davis-Taylor with 6. Gavin Benson, Illia Ivanov,  Alex Tran also scored in the game. Next up is a home game Monday against Traughber.

    What would you do if you were given $100,000? Would you spend it all at once? Would you think about putting some of it in the bank?

    Hey Mav’s: Last night the 7th grade girls volleyball team traveled to Plank. The A match was very intense! While the girls won the first set, they lost the second set and almost had the win but lost in the tie breaker 15 to 12. It was a very close game and the girls did a great job. The B match was just as intense. They lost the first set but made a big comeback winning the 2nd and 3rd set- taking the win for the game. 

    Last night the boys soccer team traveled to plank for their 2nd game of the season. After a long and very physical game Murphy ended the game with a tie.

    Way to go Mavericks!

    MAVS! Did you know that April is Autism Awareness month? This week, Student Council would like to bring your attention to this important cause. Each day, we will share a fact or two about autism during the morning announcements. Today, we would like to begin by defining what autism is. “Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 44 children in the United States today” (“What is Autism?” Autism Speaks). Mavericks, continue to listen to the announcements each day to learn more about autism.

    Hey, Mavs! Mavs, you are looking very cozy in your pajamas today! Let's show our school spirit by dressing in tye dye on Tuesday! 

    Attention Chess Club: Chess Club is cancelled today please take your normal way home.

    Hello Students:  Don't forget to say hello to someone because with that one act of kindness can make somebody feel loved and seen. When you make someone feel like that they will pass it on to someone else and then that person will do the same thing. It's a cause and effect thing that that will make everyone feel good. Saying hello is a simple, kind gesture that you can do to your classmates and others around you.

    Make it a great day Mavericks!

    Now in sports: Last night, the 8th grade girls took on Traughber in a close game. They came out and took an early 6 to 2 lead and kept that lead for the rest of the game. The end was close but the girls took control and held on and won by 2.  The leading scorers were Annabelle with 14, Elizabeth - 5, Carleigh - 4 and Ashley with a bucket. In the second game, we came out and made three quick baskets. The girls played well and kept adding to the lead for an easy victory.  The leading scorers were Kaia with 6, Kayla - 4, Ndego, Alana and Gabby all had a bucket.  

    Great wins last night, Mavs!

    Make it a great day, Mavericks!

It was a hard fought game and the boys played a great game. Come out tonight as they take on Plank.

     

    Last night the 8th grade girls volleyball team went to Traughber. The A team won with some amazing saves! But the B team had a really close game with great serves but sadly lost. Good game girls! Mav’s come cheer our 8th-grade volleyball team as they travel to Plank tonight!

    Make it a great day Mavericks!

    This week is Say something week organized by the Sandy Hook Promise Program. Say something week is dedicated to preventing school violence. This Program reinforces three steps: 1. Recognize warning signs and threats- Learn about the different types of warning signs or threats and where you are likely to find them, especially on social media. 2. Act immediately; take it seriously-understand strategies to take action and overcome potential barriers to being an "upstander" rather than a "bystander."  3. Say something-Learn how to intervene when you see the warning signs and threats by telling a trusted adult. When it comes to threats of violence or suicide, most are known by at least one other individual before the incident occurs. By building a culture of looking out for one another and reporting possible threats of violence when someone sees or hears of it our communities will become safer and lives will be saved.

    Last night the 7th grade basketball team wrapped up their season against Thompson.  After a low scoring half in the first game, the Mavericks held a slim 9 to 4 lead.  The Tigers came out fired up for the second half and quickly sank 3 shots to take the lead.  The Mavericks then toughened up their defense to shut down the Tigers for the rest of the half to pick up a 25 to 10 victory.  Cassie led the scoring with 18 points, while Addison added 7.  The team finished with a 7 and 1 record. In the second game, the Mavericks fell behind early.  The Mavericks battled hard, but had difficulty closing the gap.  With a little over a minute to go the Mavericks were still down by 5.  The Mavericks then stepped up their game to pull within 1 point, but ran out of time in the 17 to 16 loss.  Layla, Mia, and Natalie each finished with 4 points, while Lundin added 3.  The team's second game record was 6 and 2. Thank you ladies for a great season!

    Hey Mav’s: The 7th grade basketball team rebounded from a tough loss last week to pick up a pair of wins against Plank.  The Mavericks were able to work for some good shots to pick up the 30 to 11 victory.  Ava led the scoring with 10 points, Cassie added 9, Addison was good for 5, and Lauren finished with 4 points. In the second game, both teams had trouble controlling the ball.  Fortunately the Mavericks were able to get some shots to fall to slowly build a lead.  Plank battled back to get close, but the Mavericks held on for the 14 to 8 victory.  Audrey led the scoring with 6 points, while Emily, Skylar, Natalie, and Gianna also scored.

    Mavericks: Last night the 7th grade basketball team played Bednarcik in the pink out game.  After battling for a 13 to 13 halftime lead, then Mavericks couldn't keep pace with Bulldogs in the second half.  The Bulldogs were able to pull away for a 31 to 18 victory.  Addison led the scoring with 7 points, while Ava added 4. In the second game, the Mavericks gave up their halftime lead during the 3rd quarter to set up an exciting end to the game.  Down by 1 with only a few minutes to go, Lundin sank 2 free throws to take the lead.  Then some tough defensive play allowed the Mavericks to pick up the 23 to 18 victory.  Audrey led the scoring with 6 points, Mia added 5, and Lundin and Ella ended with 4 points.

    Hey Mav’s: The 7th grade basketball team travelled to Plank to pick up 32 to 12 win.  While struggling to get shots to fall, tough defensive pressure held the Pirates to only 2 first half points.  Cassie and Ava led the scoring with 8 points each, while Sydney added 6. In the second game, the Mavericks suffered a tough 14 to 18 loss.  Audrey led the scoring with 9 points, while Layla and Miranda each scored 2 points.

     

    Last night the 8th grade girls played Plank at home.  We started off shooting really well and went up quick by 8 and from there on never looked back. The girls played amazing defense and ran a good offense winning 32 to 15.  Leading scorers where Anna with 10, Anya and Morgan had 6 while Riley had 5  and Alex had 4.  In the second game it was a close game all the way to the end where we hit a couple of shots and took a 7 point lead and held on to the end for the victory.  Leading scorers were Maddie with 7 Zakiyah with 4 and both Emmas and Tea had 2. Great job last night ladies, also great job from the rowdies in the stands you were a big help to that win.

    Last night the 8th grade boys traveled to Thompson for their last game of the season.  It was a close game all the way to the end as we went into overtime.  Throughout the game Will hit some big shots  and both Jaydens took care of the ball when needed Aiden did a great job on the boards along with Reggie.  Ivan came up big hitting the last shot to send us into overtime.  In overtime Ivan hit another shot and made both free throws to clinch the win. The 2 leading scorers were Will with 1, Ivan with 6 and Aiden had 5. In the second game we took the lead early and never looked back as we stretched the margin of victory even more in the 2nd half to win by 30 points.  Leading scorers where Jakob with 11, Allen with 9, Hunter with 7 and Kendell had 6.  They had a great season and only lost 2 very close games! Congratulations boys on a great season!

     

    Attention 8th grade girls trying out for basketball.  Please meet Mr. Brown outside his office by the gym, after announcements to pick up tryout information.

    Today is September 11th. For the students roaming the halls of Murphy Junior High, you do not know the world before this fateful day. But for the adults here today, it is a day that is etched in our minds. I encourage students to ask your teachers to share their memories of September 11, 2001.  Most will be able to tell you very specific and vivid details of that day and the following days. What we know today is that 19 terrorists associated with Al Queda were responsible for hijacking 4 commercial airplanes. Two were flown into the World Trade Center in New York, one was crashed into the Pentagon near Washington DC and the fourth crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. All told, nearly 3000 people lost their lives in the attacks and aftermath.

     


    Now, we will have our moment of silence to remember all those affected by the attack on America that took place on September 11, 2001. 

     

    Make it a great day Mavericks!
