SHERIDAN HIGH SCHOOL - Sheridan high school will be out this week for the summer and as athletes get ready for the off season we sat down with Sheridan high school football coach and Activities Director Don Julian to talk about this past school year.
It was a busy spring in 2011 with Sheridan hosting regional track and field and state soccer on back to back weekends.
Over all the sports year started and ended with a Bronc state championship.
The Bronc golfers took the 4-A state title last September and the Bronc soccer team ended the year winning the program's first ever state title two weeks
A new national study came out this week noting that high school students involved in activities and sports on average are better students in and out of the class room and Julian says that's how it at Sheridan high school.
