Good morning,
 
Our GLHS students and graduates have had some significant successes throughout the past couple of weeks. I thought I would share them with you on this cold (-2 degrees) Valentine’s Day.
 
Have a great week! Doug
 
GLHS Senior Achieves Scouting’s Gold Award    
Zoey Bommarito, Grass Lake HS Senior, has completed her Girl Scout Gold Award. The Gold Award is the highest honor achieved in Girl Scouting. Zoey focused her yearlong project on creating a way to bring awareness for dating and relationship violence and promoting healthy relationships. Her project, entitled “Look Up”, centered around not always focusing on looking down at your phone but by paying attention to what is around you and being aware of what is happening to your relationships.

Zoey’s project elements included surveying the high school, creating awareness information to be used at 8th grade orientation and an Ignition Mentor awareness activity. She gave away purple bracelets sporting the “Look Up” logo and she created an awareness brochure that includes warning signs and resource information which will be located in the high school office. We congratulate Zoey on her extraordinary planning and effort toward reaching her goals.

Pictured below is Zoey making a presentation about her project to the Grass Lake Board of Education.

GLHS Grapplers Move on to Regionals
Three of our Warriors placed at Districts today and advance to the Regional Championships next Saturday in Bronson!
Theresa Rankin (112) placed fourth in possibly the hardest district weight class in the state. She knocked off the four seed early and went on to finish behind the top three ranked wrestlers in the state.
Paul Grysko (189) placed third and nearly had second. His only loss on the day was a heartbreaking semi-final match that went into overtime. It was an incredibly exciting match.
Brett Lockridge (171) also placed third. His only loss on the day was in the semi-finals to the eventual champion, Brett dominated his matches, taking control right off the whistle and imposing his will on his opponents. 
Pictured below are (l-r) Paul Grysko, Brett Lockridge, and Theresa Rankin.

GLHS Instrumentalist Headed for States –
Congratulations to our GLHS musicians who participated in the regional solo and ensemble festival held at Onsted HS on Saturday, February 6.
  • Tim Lester played a French Horn solo he has been preparing for his college auditions and did a fabulous job earning a First/Superior rating.
  • Nick Plensdorf, Matt Pokornicki, Tim Lester, and Mike Molitz performed a Brass Quintet that received rave reviews from the judges and also earned a First/Superior rating.
  • Matt Pokornicki, Mike Molitz, and Jacob Tietsema performed a very difficult Trumpet trio that required quite a few new skills, did a wonderful job and earned a First/Superior rating.
  • Danny Hickey and Jacob Rapp performed a woodwind duet and I have to compliment these two gentlemen on being so self sufficient on getting their music ready with very little help from me. They earned a First/Superior rating.
  • Sean Hickey, Craig Ferry, and Megean Setla performed a woodwind trio and did a great job with their first high school Solo & Ensemble experience earning a Second/Excellent rating.
The four groups earning a First/Superior rating are eligible to attend State Solo and Ensemble on March 19.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The Adrian College Bulldogs traveled to the Women's Collegiate Wrestling Association (WCWA) National Tournament this weekend, culminating with the end of the season. Freshman Sam Cushard became the first All-American for the Bulldogs in the program's inaugural season. Cushard finished seventh in the tournament to qualify for the award.
Cushard took seventh the hard way circling back through the consolation bracket to break into the top eight. After losing her opening match to the eventual fourth-place finisher, Cushard would go on an amazing four-match win streak to take seventh place. She would need only 18 seconds to pin her opponent in the first match of the consolation bracket. She would follow up with a technical fall victory over her third opponent of the tournament by the score of 10-0. Cushard would win her next two matches by pins at the 1:30 and 4:08 marks to complete the streak. At that point Cushard lost to the eventual fifth-place finisher. After winning the seventh place match by injury forfeit, she would finish the tournament with a 5-2 record at 155 pounds.
