SOCCER: Congratulations to the Northeast Soccer Team for pulling out an away win at Broughal Middle School this week. The Rockets were the first team to draw blood and scored a fluke goal. Down one goal the Hornets fought back and were able to tie the game with a goal by Jean Jeronimo. The game was tied at half time, and the cold wind was taking its toll on all the players on the field. In the second half, the Hornets were able to score a few goals. Jean Jeronimo scored another goal, Donovan Morales scored two more, with Assists from Finn Houle and Aneglique Carvalho. Our goalies Finn Houle and Casey Huie split the game and both only allowed 1 goal each, they were crucial in keeping Northeast in the game. Jaylynn Holderman played one of her best games yet of the year, her defense kept the Rockets at bay! Great job Hornets! Come support the Soccer team at Nitschmann Middle School on our last game of the year May 5th!”

THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Have you ever heard this American proverb: Where there is no vision, the people will perish. That’s an interesting thing to think about. What’s your vision for tomorrow? What dreams are you dreaming? Goethe (GER-tuh), Germany’s most famous writer and one of the world’s greatest literary geniuses, said: Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Anybody out there without vision? Perish that thought!
