Over the past few weeks, students in Mrs. Sleeper's class have been working on animal research papers. They picked an animal, researched it on their chromebooks, and took notes over their animals. They then turned that information into a research paper and made it into a poster to display in the hallway. GR8 job, students!

The team is in their final week of preparation before the big tournament at Clinton Country Club. Go TIGERS!
The Tigers lost a good game against Sacred Heart last night, 20-10. Offensively, the Tigers were led by Landon Mason who hit a home run and scored two runs. The Tiger offense came alive with a season's best 10 runs, and have shown improvement as the season has progressed. Austin Warner and Mason Ferrel pitched very well over their 5 innings of work. Some ill-timed fielding and baserunning mistakes were the biggest differences in the game. We are proud of our TIGERS!

The Tigers competed at the Smithton Invitational today. For this meet, the main goal was to attempt some new events that each athlete has not tried before. Despite this unfamiliarity, the Tigers put up very strong performances. Starting with the field events, Wyatt Brosch and Mason Miles both competed in the discus throw and long jump. Mason threw 20.75m earning a new PR and placing 8th at the meet. Wyatt won the event with a throw of 30.63m improving his best mark as well. In the long jump, both boys debuted with jumps of 3.19m for Mason and 3.62m for Wyatt. Mason earned 9th at the meet. This earned Wyatt the number 3 spot on the GRJH Top 5 for Long Jump and tied for 7th at the meet. For the running events, Jared Owens represented GR in the 400m dash, Callie Knoernschild in the 800m run, and Rylee Donaldson and Matthew Sharp in the 200m dash. In his first-ever 400m dash, Jared Owens ran 1:08.57, taking over the second spot on the GRJH Top 5 for 400m dash and placing 8th at the meet. Callie Knoernschild ran her first 800m run, finishing in 3:26.92 and placing second. She had a strong start and was able to maintain throughout the entire race. In the 200m dash, Rylee Donaldson ran 34.57s placing 4th on the GRJH Top 5 for the 200m dash and placing 6th at the meet. On the boy's side of the 200m dash, Matthew Sharp finished in 31.89s also taking over the 4th spot on the GRJH Top 5 for 200m dash and placing 8th at the meet.

On Monday, April 19, the junior high Tigers traveled to Russellville for the War-Tribe Relays. The meet started off warm with temperatures in the 70s before cooling down to the 50s. While the temperature cooled down, our performances did not. To start the meet, Jared Owens and Matthew Sharp threw in the discus. Jared improved his personal record to 26.65m, an improvement of 3.06m. Matthew improved his best from 21.13m to 23.37m. Following the discus, Mason Miles threw 6.37m in his first ever shot put attempt. On the running side, Mason and Matthew continued the Tigers performances in the 100m dash with 14.63s and 15.19s respectively. This qualifies as a PR for Matthew. In the 1600m, Jared ran 6:01.98 to improve his best time by about 1 second. For the girls, Callie Knoernschild ran 8:06.54. She did a great job persevering and pushing through despite running alone most of the race. Rylee Donaldson improved her PR from 7:05.82 to 6:57.23. This makes her the first middle school girl in recorded GR history to break 7 minutes in the mile. The GRJH Tigers will compete next at Smithton on Wednesday. Great job, Tigers!
