Second Round District Baseball

Last night the Tigers traveled to Liberal for the second round of district play. The Tigers faced off against the Sheldon Panthers for the third time this season. Being run ruled by the Panthers the first two games, the Tigers were out for revenge.  With Trevor Norbury pitching for the night he came out with eight strikeouts.  The Tigers batted very good scoring twelve runs, and holding Sheldon to only one. The Tigers got their revenge by run ruling the Panthers after five innings. Trevor Norbury had a home run, and Trevor Delozier was two for three at the plate with three RBIs. Coach Andula said that his team hit very well and pitched well.

The Tigers will be playing in the district championship game on Monday, May 14 at Liberal against the Liberal Bulldogs. Come support the Tigers and cheer them on!

Holocaust Section

Mrs. Will’s Classic Literature class did a section this year over the Holocaust.  They read many documenteries, and stories, watched movies over it, and read papers.  Some of the movies included Schindlers List and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.  Each student was given a Jewish child that they had to look up on the internet and read about their life during the holocaust, and whether they lived or not.  Mrs. Wills put the class into five groups by having them each draw a camp name out of a hat.  The people with the same camp names were in a group together.  Each group had to make a poster of their Jewish child, make a fake diary that their child wrote that looks realistic and old, write a research paper over their camp, make a powerpoint over thier camp, print out the internet page over their child, and make a fake obituary if their child died or a autobiography if they lived.  The groups consisted of four students each, except one group of five.  Also, towards the end of the project, a guest speaker, a daughter of a holocaust survivor, came and spoke to all the students in the Classic Literature class about what her mother went through and how the times were.  She showed the students pictures, and documents from the Holocaust.  Many of the students said this gave them a better understanding of what it was like and gave them a more emotional view point of the Holocaust.  They also said it makes it seem more real now, at first it was just something that they learned about every year in school, and something they never put much thought into, until she came and told her mom’s story.
