                                Powder-Puff: A Junior, Senior Rivalry
                                                          By Kayla Zelasney

                         After the pep fest on Friday, the juniors and seniors hit the football field to play
                         some “two-hand touch” football that turned into a little bit of a game of tackle. The
                         game started with the junior girls kicking off to the seniors. The senior girls unfor-
                         tunately lost a player within the first few minutes of the game when Megan Haus
   Juniors Powder-Puff   got hurt, but the game continued.

                         The senior girls, with some help from a few sophomores tried to play a running
                         game handing the ball off to Sara Peters (aka Bambi) every few plays, but the jun-
                         ior defense didn’t allow too many rushing yards. Jenny Geariety was the QB for the
                         seniors, and she did a good job of passing. Maita and a few other of the senior girls
                         got some nice catches during the game too. The juniors stuck mostly to a passing
                         game, although Taylor Polchow got quite a few yards. Jessica Huber made a few
                         complete passes as QB for the junior girls. She threw the touchdown pass to Kayla
                         Zelasney in the first half.

                         The game was back and forth, and it was a lot of fun. In the end, the junior girls
                         earned the bragging rights and won 6-0. Thanks to everyone who played, and
  Seniors PowderPuff     thanks to the guys for trying to coach us girls.

Hey guys! Wow..it’s almost November, football season is over, and volleyball is in playoffs. School’s been going by way too
quickly for me! I guess I don’t really mind because I want summer to come as much as everyone else, but still the year’s
flying by!

Homecoming this year was a blast! Finally being a junior and being involved in the whole senior vs junior rivalry was pret-
ty fun. I have to say that powder-puff football rocked, and I, along with a lot of other people, think that our school needs
to get a girls football team. Even Megan Steel would go out for a girls’ football team. What are we waiting for?

Ok speaking of Megan Steel, she got a huge, titanium, 15 inch rod taken out of her leg..ouch! Yet she’s still walking around
like nothing happened. Wow! She’s pretty tough. It must have been all that extensive weight lifting she did this summer.
I mean seriously have you seen this girl’s arms? She’s RIPPED!!! Ok, I’m embarrassing Megan, so I guess I’ll write about
someone else.

I can’t write this first article of the year without saying something about last year’s seniors. It was really weird the first few
days of school to not have them in school, and I’m still trying to get used to it. It’s funny to see them outside of school
though because you always ask the same, “How’s college? Or How have you been?” in a way that makes it sound like they’ve
fallen off the edge of the earth. Seriously it’s like we see our graduates from last year, and it seems as if we haven’t talked
to them in a year or so. Jacki Anderson pointed that out to me that everyone makes a big deal about seeing them.

Story time! I went to Iowa over MEA with Kenny and Matt (my brothers for those of you who don’t know already).
Anyways, we were on our way to Treynor on that Thursday, and we’d been driving for a few hours. We were in Sibley, Iowa
when Kenny decided we needed to stop to get some breakfast/lunch. We’d left early, so we were hungry. As we pulled into
Subway, Kenny said he was hearing this noise coming from the engine. I thought he was just imaging things. After he came
back out of subway, he checks under the hood just to be sure, and it turned out one of our belts had fallen off of some part
of the engine. I know nothing about cars, all I know is that it had something to do with the water pump, and if Kenny had-
n’t of caught it, we would have broken down somewhere else. Anyways, we ended up having to take the car to some shop,
and after explaining the situation to the guy there, he said he could have the car done by 5. It was about 11 when we took
it in to the shop. There we were, Kenny, Matt, and I stuck in some town in the middle of nowhere with no car and nothing
to do. The town wasn’t big enough to have a mall, but it did have a dollar store and a library. We spent a little bit of time
wandering around, but spent most of the day at the library on the computers just messing around and stuff. I never want
to spend that much time alone with my brothers again! They’re pretty crazy, and kept fighting over something or other.
At one point, I’m pretty sure they were yelling at squirrels…Finally my dad showed up and took us to pizza hut, and by that
time the car was done. So we finally left for Treynor at about 5:30ish. It took a while to get there, but we finally did. That’s
my story. Pretty long, but it was a crazy day!

Ok, I’ve given you my great story, and I have nothing else to say. Until next month, see ya around!

How long have you been playing volleyball?

MS: Since 5th grade
AO: 8 years
CG: Since 7th grade

Why did you start?

MS: Because everyone else was playing and it was fun!
AO: I watched while Joni managed the team and I thought it was
cool, and my sister played.
CG: I wanted to play since 5th grade, and so my mom said I could go
out.

What is your most memorable sports moment?

MS: Winning against Maple River in 3 games last season
AO: Watching Erin Goebel hit a girl in the face
CG: Just watching my sister play with her beautiful, non-gaudy red
and black mouth guard.

What is your inspiration?

MS: My family and my teammates
AO: The love of the game
CG: Watching Misty May and Carrie Walsh play sand volleyball. They’re
amazing!

What is the best part of the game days?

MS: The excitement and rush of running onto the court
AO: The anticipation

hard work.

MS: Erin’s mouth guard
AO: My Jersey! It has my favorite number, 18, and I just like it!

                            By Meghan Miller

 Erin Freitag is our new coach for fall, winter, and com-
 petition cheerleading. She attended the Mayo School
 of Health Sciences and she also attended our very own
 St.    Clair     and     while     in     school     she
 participated in cheerleading.

 Her favorite sport is soccer, her favorite foods are tacos
 and watermelon. She likes all different kinds of music,
 her favorite movie is Ten Things I Hate About You,
 and her favorite book is The Outlander Series.

 Erin’s most memorable sports moment is winnng 1st
 place at the state competition, the first year St. Clair
 ever competed. What she looks for in her athletes is a
 positive attitude. They must also be good role-models,
 because there are a lot of people who look
 up to cheerleaders.

 Her goal for the season is to improve on everything
 they do. Erin’s favorite thing about coaching cheer-
 leading is working with all of the girls on their
 stunting.
