Olivia Prater and Lucas Morgan are best friends. Thankfully, their friendship has led to the formation of an organization that is focused on helping kids battle chemotherapy.
When Lucas was diagnosed with leukemia in 2012, a special blanket comforted him during his chemotherapy treatments. After thinking about helping other kids who are going through the same challenges, Capes for KEMO (Kids on an Extraordinary Mission to Oust Cancer) was born. This organization seeks to raise money to make blankets for kids going through chemotherapy, and the thoughtfulness of our two MSHS students was document in the Spokesman-Review this past week.
Truly, Olivia and Lucas are two of Mt. Spokane’s finest, and I’m so very thankful that their special story has been shared with the Spokane community. Click HERE for the full text!
Last week, Mt. Spokane counselor and assistant wrestling coach, Rob Renner, was named the 2013/14 GSL Assistant Coach of the Year. Thank you, Rob, for all you do for students at MSHS. . . this honor is extremely well deserved, and we’re all very thankful that you have received this recognition!
As we enter the final two weeks of February, the post-season for winter sports is in full swing!
Competing at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish this past weekend, our Wildcat wrestlers had an impressive showing at regionals. Taking second overall as a team, our squad of disciplined grapplers qualified nine (9) to the 2014 State Tournament that will take place this weekend, (February 21 & 22), in Tacoma. Wildcats heading to state include:
Jason Beck, Christian Nibarger & Tom Harvey – All REGIONAL CHAMPS!
Brandon Roberts & Alec Hoover – 2nd place finishers
Andrew Hoover, Kiegen Shauer & Rich Bondurant – 3rd place
Hayden Hohman – 4th place
Thankfully, our wrestlers were not the only athletes qualifying for state. Competing at University High School this Saturday, Mt. Spokane finished second in an extremely competitive regional meet and qualified four to the state meet in Tacoma including:
Amara Poquette and Reigan Kampmann – Qualified on all four events
Jade Anderson – Qualified on vault, beam and floor
Brooke Fraser – Qualified on vault, bars and floor.
Great job, gymnasts!
Finally, both our boys and girls basketball teams will travel to Kennewick tomorrow (Tuesday, February 18th) to take on the Kamiakin Braves in loser-out regional games. Good luck to both teams!
