ON Friday, November 14, the Thunder caused doors to rattle and students to cheer in the halls. This wasn’t a freak cold-weather thunderstorm, this was the St. Cloud area adapted soccer team - The Thunder - who elicited cheers and support from AHS students.
The Thunder’s pep rally, led by its Apollo team members, preceded a Friday night game to qualify for a state championship match. The team rumbled through the halls and onto a bus to drive to the stadium.
The Thunder, though electric and determined, lost the state-qualifying game and returned home to St. Cloud and began looking ahead to next year.
