FFA State Covention

Wednesday April 18th, 11 FFA members loaded a bus for FFA State Convention in Columbia Missouri. On the way to Columbia they stopped by Lakeland and picked up four more FFA members, then proceeded to pick up Mrs. Eldridge in Warrensburg. It would be a long grueling drive from Warrensburg to Columbia, so they stopped at Applebee’s in Warrensburg and had supper along with picking up Ms.Eldridge. While there, one of the students decided to pull a prank on Mr.Gillis the Ag. teacher. The student told the waitress it was Mr.Gillis’ birthday so she brought him out a desert, got the whole restaurant attention and announced that it was his birthday. Afterwards it was a non stop trip to Columbia. Once arriving at Holiday Inn in Columbia we were given room keys, and had a meeting to go over the next day’s schedule.

Thursday was loaded with things to do. the Ento. team consisting of Ashlyn Kithcart, Sam Laughlin, Cheyenne Champlin, and Jackson Ogburn were dropped off at the fairgrounds, Dairy foods consisting of Jacob Thompson, Trevor Delozier, Caleb Skocy, and Riley Cameron were dropped off at the Hearnes Center, along with the voting delegates who were Kendra Taylor, and Gavin Steuck. The delegates sat through the first session which lasted about an hour, before being picked up and dropped off at the hotel to change. After changing the voting delegates, Logan Wheatley, and the Meats team consisting of Traci Stevener, Cody Yarick, Thomas Fleischer and Katie Thornburg went to the mall. While there they met up with the other Rich Hill contest teams that were dropped off there after their contests were over. After hours of shopping we all went back and changed into official dress for the second session. The second session was quite long. Thomas Fleischer, Cody Yarick, and Logan Wheatley all received their proficiency awards. Thomas received proficiency in Dairy, Cody in Refined Fiber Optics and Oil, and Logan ion Poultry. later that night they all had another meeting about the next day, then spent the rest of the night ordering pizza, and doing random things like watching movies or t.v, talking, and other things.

Friday started off early with the Meats team going to contest and Jackson practicing with the State Choir. Everyone else got to sleep in later and were planning to go swimming, but they were unable to swim on account of the pool being closed. Everyone got into official dress, checked out of the hotel, and loaded the bus to go to the Career Show also Jara Mumma arrived. The Career Show was filled with vendors, colleges, and other booths set-up to look at. After the Career Show they got back on the bus to go eat at Stake and Shake or Bob Evans. After lunch they picked up the Meats team and headed for the third session to watch Jackson sing. They left shortly after the choir got finished so they could go to Bass Pro Shop to look around. Some people bought food, hunting supplies, and even games. After Bass Pro it was on to the fourth and final session. During the fourth session they were graced by a sole from Jara Mumma who sang “Little White Church” by Little Big Town. Much later that night Jara and Logan received their State Degree. Afterwards it was back on the bus, on to a gas station to change for the long trip home. Before reaching Rich Hill they dropped Ms. Eldridge off at Warrensburg. They arrived back in Rich Hill around one o’clock in the morning.

The Ento. team placed 22nd out of 47 teams. With Sam placing 50th, Jackson placing 66th, Cheyenne placed 95th, and Ashlyn placed 135th out of 183 other individuals.

Dairy Foods placed 22nd out of 45 teams. Caleb placing 50th, Trevor placing 53rd, Jacob placing 98th, and Riley placing 127th out of 170 other individuals.

Baseball and Softball vs. Sheldon Panthers

Last night, Thursday, April 27, the Sheldon Panthers came to Rich Hill to play both a baseball and softball game. The night started off with the baseball game. Previously in the season when these two teams meet, Sheldon handled the Rich Hill Tigers fairly easily. Last night, the Tigers took another hard loss to the Panthers with a final score of 12 to 1. Also, in the first inning, Riley Cameron was fielding a ground ball, the ball hit a rock on the field, and came up and hit him in the nose. He received a broken nose and was taken to the hospital for stitches.
Coach Andula commented about the game and said, “we did not play well, but Sheldon is a very good team and will definitely be seeded number one in districts.”
After the boys’ game, the girls took the field. Previously in the season, Rich Hill had also been beat by Sheldon, 10 to 0. Last night, the Tigers played better against them, but it still was not enough to hold off the Panthers. Sheldon won the game, 7 to 2.
Kadeesha West-Persley was asked about the game. She said, “we played much better defensively, but we still were unable to execute on offense.”
