Tuesday night was pink out night for the Lawrence Nelson-Blue Hill volleyball game. This was to show our total support for breast cancer as it is breast cancer awareness month. Before the game started, parents night was also a big night for the two seniors. The seniors are Taylor Bonifas and Halee Kohmetscher. The reason for parents night is for all of us to honor the parents and the seniors to recognize all the hard work they have put into this sport.

College Fair

Schmidt – Shaw

On Monday, September 25,  juniors and seniors visited CCC for a college fair. There were several colleges from all over Nebraska, and even out of state colleges. The fair took place in CCC’s gymnasium.

Blue Hill Students had the opportunity to visit any college booth and learn more information about that college. A few of the colleges were University of Nebraska-Lincoln /Kearney /Omaha, Joseph’s College: Cosmetology, and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

Many of the colleges had free items such as pens, and they also had information booklets for students to take home and share with parents. The booklets had cost, activities, and different information about the college’s programs and events.

The college representatives were respectable and quick on their feet explaining things to multiple schools’ students. Rylee Kohmetscher, Junior, eagerly stated, “They were very positive and energetic and were extremely helpful in recognizing their college’s strong suits.” While Britney Toepfer, Senior, wants to recognize UNK and UNL, “UNK and UNL were the best booths I went to because they were personable and explanatory.”

The students enjoyed the experience and were pushed into a great direction towards a better future. Going to the college fair at CCC-Hastings brought to light many opportunities for our students.

Kort and Kosse

The Blue Hill Spirit Squad got quite the workout as the Blue Hill football team defeated the Meridian Mustangs on Friday, August 24.

This year the Spirit Squad is starting a new tradition of doing kicks and push-ups for all points scored. They do push-ups for 30 points and then switch to kicks.

The final score was 58-8, giving the spirit squad quite the workout.

The bobcats are expected to keep the tradition alive and go far this year in the Nebraska state playoffs.

Another new addition this fall for the cheerleaders is stunting, which includes a basic lift while the girls are cheering.

With the changes to spirit squad and a talented group of football athletes, this fall will be a great season to follow.
