In our second tournament of the year the 16s team finished in second after being seeded third following pool play. The girls battled very hard and we were short handed much of the day. Two of the 14s team girls were called up to play with us and preformed extremely well! If you see any of the girls make sure they show you their water bottles we received for our second place finish! Great job, again, Soar!

All K-4 students work weekly with Mrs. Peterson on bully prevention! Today’s 3rd grade lesson was “Before you speak think and be smart, it’s hard to fix a broken heart”. Mrs. Peterson read a book on hurtful and helpful words. Students then wrote the above quote on a heart. After they discussed what it meant students were asked to wrinkle the heart. A wrinkled heart happens when we we choose to use hurtful words. Students the un-wrinkle the heart to show forgiveness. Students took their heart with them as a reminder!

I would like to extend a big congratulations and good luck to our state qualifying wrestling team, on behalf of the entire school, and community. Our wrestling team will take on Sibley East yet again, as a repeat of last year, at nine o’clock Thursday morning at the Exel center. As many of you know, we’ve already taken on Sibley East once this year. We know what to expect, as this is also a very good team. Congratulations boys. Show them why YOU ARE number one!
The Falcons started off strong with a tech fall to start the night wrestling the Paynesville Bulldogs. That was followed by four pins and a forfeit. At 145 we got the win in a close, well fought match. We followed it up with another pin, and a 6 – 3 win. At 170 we lost, the score moved to 47 to 3 favoring us. We got a major decision next further increasing our lead. We got another pin, we lost in overtime 1 to 3, the score is now 57 to 6. We ended this match with a pin making the school 63 to 6.
ACGC’s second match was against Kimball. Ryan won at 106 giving us a 3 to zero lead, while getting his 60th win. We followed that up
with a pin in the third period, and we got another pin after that. We lost two after that. We lost again after that, but it was a well fought battle but quickly followed it up with
a pin. We won then and got another three points for our team. At 160 we got a tech fall
increasing our points once again. We continued increasing the lead, it’s now 36 to 7.
At 182 we got a pin for even more team points. We get another pin and with that
Maverick gets his 125 win of his career. We followed it up with a win. And a quick pin to
finish it off.

The ACGC JO volleyball girls had a tournament in St Cloud this last Saturday and competed very well. The 14′s team placed fourth in the Gold division and the 16″s team placed first in their division. JO volleyball isn’t through the school but all of our girls go to ACGC.
