News From Activities Director

 Activities Director News

The fall season has come to a close and a much needed rest for all student-athletes will be welcomed for at least a couple of weeks.  I would like to congratulate and recognize all student-athletes, who participated in any fall activity, as any of these require a lot of time and effort juggling academics, practices, and performances.  I would also like to thank all of the coaches and their supporting staff for the amount of time, dedication, and effort that they put forth throughout their respected season.  Being involved in activities provide so many life lessons for our students. This opportunity happens because of the great coaches and students.  We have such an amazing student body here at Hershey Public Schools!   

Congratulations to Emily Barr and Channing Holm for making 1st team SPVA All-Conference and Ashley Hassett for making Honorable Mention.  Congratulations to Isaac Margritz, Jeremy Parker, Kadin Oettinger, Colten Ballentine, and Eli Huebner for making the C2-7 All District Football

Winter sports are underway and they have all been practicing extremely hard for the upcoming games.  JH Wrestling had an amazing season this year.  Coach Cale Streeter and assistant coach Dustin Elliott worked very hard for these boys.  There were many 1st place and runner-up finishes at their tournaments.  After talking with both coaches they are very excited for future the of the wrestling program.

We participated in our Jamboree Scrimmage vs. Sidney this year on Tuesday, November 20th.  This is an NSAA event that did not count towards the teams records.  The entire amount of the gate money made from this event went to the Nebraska Hall of Fame Foundation.  

The first basketball game of the season will be Thursday, November 29th at home versus Perkins County.  The Wrestling program recently conducted a very successful 2nd annual Black & Blue Wrestle-off scrimmage.  There was a lot of great intersquad competition and are looking forward to an excellent upcoming season.  Wrestling will travel to Ravenna on Friday, November 30th for their first tournament.  

Congratulations to our One Act Play cast and crew under the direction of Tyler Cronin, assisted by Ian Nelson, as they received runner-up at SPVA conference and won the Class C1-6 District performance!  One Act will perform at the State in Norfolk on Thursday, December 6th at 4:30 PM.  The performance will be at the Johnny Carson Theatre.  Good luck cast, crew, and directors!

A quick reminder that we are still selling the old football jerseys.  One for $50 and two for $90.  Both Nike and Speedline uniforms are available.  Please email or call the school if you are interested in purchasing a jersey.  Several have been spoken for but still need to be picked up.
