Ten students represented Loy Norrix very well in Lansing this past weekend at the annual Youth in Government Conference. Special honors went to Amady Mboup for “Outstanding Senator,” and to Leland Wagner, who was selected to be next year’s Head Lobbyist. In addition, our Mock Trial team, composed of Hannah Locke, Yacine Lo, Clara Moss, and Nina Molitor, made it to the semi-finals in the Model Judiciary competition. Congratulations to these and the other members of our delegation: Jack Novotny, who served as this year’s Head Lobbyist, Guthrie Harris, Dady Lo, and Bjorn Nelson.

With spring around the corner, any student who plans on participating in a sport next trimester needs to make sure their forms are taken care of. This means if you have not done a sport already this year, you need a physical and insurance. All athletes also need to fill out the consent form. Links to these can be found on the athletic page through the online registration button. We look forward to having all eligible students out for one of our amazing sports teams.

Sword and Board will meet on Thursday this week in room C16 from 230-330.

Attention graduating Seniors. If you have an interest in speaking at your commencement ceremony, you need to sign-up in room B-18 by Tuesday, February 28th.

Would you like to fly? Have you ever dreamed of gliding through the air and landing to the sound of family and friends cheering you on? Try pole vaulting. It is one of the most exciting events in track and field. We need people willing to try new things to join us. Gymnastics backgrounds are appreciated but not required. Pole vaulting not your thing? There are plenty of other events in track and field that don’t involve running miles at a time. Consider throwing, sprinting, or jumping. No experience is necessary. We have more coaches this year to help give you more individual attention and help. Every sport is better if you are stronger and faster. Let us help you use track to improve your performance for fall or winter sports. In the meantime, you can join one of the most successful teams Loy Norrix has to offer

Congratulations to the Norrix boys bowling team. They are the conference champions for the 22-23 season. They concluded their undefeated season by defeating Niles on Saturday.
The girls finished in 7th which is a huge accomplishment in itself since they played most of the games understrength, sometimes by 2 players. But that did not stop them from continuing to take at 1 or 2 points almost every week. Great job by both. This Friday and Saturday we have the regional tournament. Let’s see if we can keep the momentum going.
