The Super Smash Brothers team was similarly dominant, defeating all opponents and finishing up the regular season with 10 wins and 1 loss as a team. Both teams have qualified for the upcoming playoffs on December 7th at Northwood University where they will compete with teams from across the state for the chance to win the first ever state championship in each game.

They did it! For the first time in a decade Loy Norrix is taking a boy and a girl to the state finals for cross country. Ella Schnell will be going by virtue of her 7th place finish at the regional meet Saturday. Joe Meyers will also be competing at the Michigan International Speedway due to being our regional champion. Both runners finished one place better than projected and fought hard throughout the race. Ella and Joe improved their position over the last mile of the 5k race to earn their regional standing. As a team, the boys finished 12th and girls 9th out of 15 complete teams. Notable performances were also put in by Gavin Roznac dropping nearly 2 minutes on his best time, and LIlly Daniels and Kinsey Skjold for dropping almost a minute off their season bests and overall bests respectively. Overall, it was a great finish to a wonderful season.

Last week your esports teams were both in action. First up were the Overwatch team, going against a tough opponent from Xavier High School in New York City, the Cavalry’s toughest opponent to date. Each match was intense, with swings going both ways as neither team gave an inch without a tough fight. Both games went into overtime, but the Cavalry’s opponents were too much to overcome. The Super Smash Brothers Ultimate team was also in action on Thursday against Midland High School, la rematch of the Knights’ only loss to date. The Knights crushed them, including senior Gabe Vroman avenging his previous loss to Midland with a 3-0 sweep of his game. The Overwatch team will again be in action this Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00 against a tough Charlotte High School team on Tuesday and a tougher challenge Wednesday from Lebanon High School in Lebanon, PA. To watch the matches, go to Twitch.tv and search for Loy Norrix. Good luck Knights!

It was a “SUPERIOR” night at MSBOA Marching Band Festival for your Loy Norrix Marching Knights. They traveled to Plainwell High School to perform for a panel of three professional adjudicators in the categories of Music, Marching, and Showmanship/General Effect. Bands are rated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the best. The Band earned a Division 1 or “Superior” rating, the highest possible distinction for a performing ensemble. Not only that, but each adjudicator gave us the highest possible rating in their category. This is the first time the LN Band has received not only an overall Division 1 rating at Marching Band Festival, but “Straight Ones” from each adjudicator. It was a great performance by your Loy Norrix Marching Knights!

And now for a few notes from the Administrators: We have some students who are missing their
education in their 3rd hour class because they are taking multiple lunches.  This is considered
truancy, students will be assigned detentions for taking multiple lunches. Also please
remember to remove your hats and hoods upon entering the building and remember to have them off
any time you are in the hallways, cafeteria or any other common area.  We have issued reminders to
students who have struggled to remember this; however, because we are in our 3rd week of school,
we will be issuing detention and please check your KPS email account each day.

Notifications will be sent to your account for lunch and after school detentions and other important
messages. Detention notifications will be emailed after the school day ends for detentions scheduled
for the following day.
