The 2B District High School Volleyball Tournament was held in Goldendale, Oct. 28. After a good regular season, a loss in its first game at the district tournament ended the Trout Lake/Glenwood girls' hopes of continuing on to regional play this weekend. Varsity players from Glenwood included Dave'y Lumley and Allison Skahan, while Audrey Hill and Julia LaVallie competed on the junior varsity team. Congratulations to the girls and Glenwood Coach Julie Brazil on a good season!
Neola Putnam competed in 2B cross country district competition in Cheney on Oct. 28. The Glenwood sophomore ended up second in the contest by completing the three-mile course in 19.38. Neola's second-place finish qualified her for state competition in Pasco on Nov. 4. Neola will be competing against approximately 50 other runners from Class B schools. Best wishes for a good race, Neola!
Glenwood High School junior Devin Dean played on the Columbia High School varsity football team again this year. Devin played fullback on offense and middle linebacker on defense. Although the injury-plagued Bruins had a tough year (2 and 6) Devin enjoyed a good personal year. He appreciates that White Salmon allowed him to participate in their program, and he is looking forward to playing his senior year with the CHS team as well. The CHS football team is done with regular-season play, but will play in a cross-over game with a northern league next Friday to complete its year. Devin plans to continue to work hard to maintain good grades and hopes for an opportunity to play college football.
Four Glenwood seventh and eighth grade football players traveled to White Salmon daily for practice and games also. Dustin Jones filled guard and linebacker positions; Jake Keithly played tackle; Harvey Starr played various positions; and Kurt Wilkins worked as a fullback on the Henkle Middle School team. The boys enjoyed their football season and helped the Grizzlies split their record 3 and 3 under head coach Dan Smith's leadership.
Sixth grader, Taylor Feller, although not old enough for junior high competition, traveled to White Salmon for Youth Football play this fall. Taylor is grooming his football skills to move up to junior high competition next year. Weekly reports from Taylor's coaches attested to his talents on the football field!
The Halloween Carnival held at the school on the evening of Oct. 28 was a huge success. Over 150 brave souls went through the haunted house! The costume contest winners were as follows: preschool, Landon Sanchey as a scarecrow; first and second grades, Kinley Troh as an adorable purple witch; third, fourth and fifth grades, Bailey Couch as a pirate; sixth, seventh and eighth grades, Kylie Montgomery as a maiden; and high school and adults, Jane Gibson as Glenda the good witch. The junior class won the booth decoration contest with its fishing game. Jane Gibson's advanced cooking class made many of the cakes that were raffled as well as the delicious caramel apples. A big thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a success -- $472 was raised for school programs.
The Women's Club announced that the regularly scheduled bingo game will not be held at the grange on Nov. 3, but pinochle will be the game of the night instead. So come on out and enjoy some friendly card games, visiting and snacks.
The Missoula Children's Theater returned to Glenwood this week. The group began auditions and practices for the play "Robin Hood" on Monday, and every child in our school is participating. The public is invited to the dinner and production on Saturday, Nov. 4. Tickets will be available at the gate and are $5 single/$15 family for the lasagna dinner; and $5 single/ $20 family for the play. Dinner will be served from 5:00 to 6:30 and the performance will begin at 7 p.m. Plan to make an evening of it by enjoying a good dinner and the talents of Glenwood's school children under the direction of the Missoula Children's Theater group.
The Pioneer Memorial Community Church is looking forward to the arrival of interim pastor, Dr. Leonard Bradley and his wife Carol. Doctor Bradley will be serving in the capacity of pastor until a permanent minister can be found. The Bradleys will begin their ministry in Glenwood on Sunday, Nov. 5. The PMCC would like to invite the community members to come by for the Sunday service at 11 a.m. to meet Dr. and Mrs. Bradley.
Just a reminder that the annual Mt. Adams 4-H Achievement Night will be held at the school on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 6:00 p.m. Year-end awards will be presented and pizza will be served. 4-Hers and leaders will need to sign up for their projects for the coming year following the awards and dinner.
