GCS Press Release

Statement:

There was rumor of a possible incident at GHS today during the pep rally that was to be held at the end of the day. As soon as GHS administrators were notified of the situation, they notified the Goshen Police Department and began their investigation. At this point, the police department has searched the building and has set up extra security at GHS. They believe that this threat is not credible and was just a rumor. GHS remains in a lock- in situation as an extra precaution. GMS also chose to be on lock-in status as an extra precaution as well.

Standard dismissal procedures, with extra police security, will be in effect. To ensure the safety and security of our students and faculty, and to alleviate or calm any anxiety or fear felt by the students, officers and school staff will continue to treat all leads and tips as if they were legitimate threats.

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2016

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

GHS will host a Red Cross blood drive on Friday, October 14th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the main gym.  Sign-ups are happening this week in social studies classes.

If you are interested in winter season cheerleading information it’s posted on the cheer website (https://cheer.goshenschools.org/) and outside the athletic office on the bench.  Winter Season open gym will start on Wednesday, October 5th from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at the warehouse.  Please contact Coach Kristy or Coach Michelle with any questions.

Reminder:  IB students, please get your registration forms completed and returned to the bookkeeper in the main office.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  An NFL line coach was reminiscing about a former player and how he was the most coachable athlete he’d ever encountered.  Howard Mudd, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, said, “He was the kind of player that was so coachable that you better not tell him the wrong thing because he’s gonna do exactly what you tell him.”  No doubt that coaches respect this kind of athlete.  Doing what a coach wants and expects out of you can go a long way in determining your playing time and your value to the team.  Can your coach count on you?  If you can answer yes, then you more than likely fall in the category of being coachable!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Former soccer great Mia Hamm was once quoted as saying, “Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but also raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.”  Most athletes that reach the pinnacle of their sport have a knack for doing just that. They remain hungry and stay focused after reaching short term goals.  They also think about development and improvement regardless of what happened the day before, good or bad.  It’s really a challenge to balance success while keeping an eye on consistent improvement.  Those that master that concept will be the ones that succeed when it counts the most!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Former soccer great Mia Hamm was once quoted as saying, “Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but also raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.”  Most athletes that reach the pinnacle of their sport have a knack for doing just that. They remain hungry and stay focused after reaching short term goals.  They also think about development and improvement regardless of what happened the day before, good or bad.  It’s really a challenge to balance success while keeping an eye on consistent improvement.  Those that master that concept will be the ones that succeed when it counts the most!

 

MEETINGS DURING SRT:

All new Stay In Bounds ambassadors are required to attend a 45 minute training session TODAY during the 2nd session of SRT in the main gym.  Any returning ambassadors who would like to help with the training should notify Mr. Kissinger.

GHS Recognition for Exemplary Sportsmanship

Congratulations to Hugh Birky and GHS tennis coaches Daniel Love and Mark Saner who were recently recognized by the IHSAA for Exemplary Sportsmanship. Please see the IHSAA report (submitted by Plymouth coaches) below:

Our teams (Plymouth and Goshen) were tied at 2 matches apiece with the match coming down to our 2S players (Hugh Birky-Goshen, Mitch Rose-Plymouth) that were in a tight match in the third set. After three hours of play and due to extreme darkness, they were forced to stop the match at 5-5 in the third set and move the match to Goshen College, where there were lights available. Our player, Mitch Rose, had been battling cramps the entire third set, before and after the change in venue.

At 5-6 in the third set, Mitch came to the net. Hugh hit a passing shot by him on match point and the Goshen fans erupted as Hugh had won the match for his team. Mitch fell to the ground in pain as he cramped up very badly trying to reach for the ball.

Instead of celebrating, Hugh immediately rushed over to Mitch’s side of the net to assist him in any way possible as he laid on the ground and had trouble getting up. Hugh brought Mitch his own personal Gatorade to see if he wanted it. Hugh made sure he was OK, and they both congratulated each other on a well-played match. Great sportsmanship all around between the players. Goshen’s coaches checked on Mitch as well, and Coach Love gave Mitch a Gatorade to drink for after the match.

It was an excellent display of sportsmanship by Hugh Birky, as well as Coach Love and Coach Saner. It was refreshing to see them show such genuine concern for an opponent in such a highly contested and hard-fought match against a conference rival.

SPORTS SCORES:

The boys tennis team finally got their match finished against Lakeland after rain caused two different attempts to be rescheduled.  Jacob Grewe started things off with an 8-0 win at 1 singles, and the last match of the 5-0 sweep finished right as the rain drops started.  They finish their regular season against Memorial tonight which is also Senior Night.  Logan Troyer, Bobby Sessa and Simon Myers will all be playing to finish their NLC seasons undefeated.

The Goshen RedHawks beat Concord, 28-25.

The JV football team lost to the Concord Minutemen, 28-7.  Conner Kulp had one touchdown pass.  Kaleb Nine had one touchdown reception.  Hewitt Nafziger had one interception.

The girls varsity volleyball team defeated South Bend Adams 2-0 and Ft. Wayne 2-0.  They lost to Elkhart Central 0-2.

The Lady RedHawks golf season has drawn to an end but not without a little excitement.  The short-handed girls only took four golfers to sectional play at Noble Hawk in Kendallville.  When the final Goshen golfer, Olivia Thomas posted her 105, the season was not necessarily over.  Olivia Lehr was in the clubhouse with a season best 91 and was in the running to go to the Regionals.  She shot 50-41 for the day and it could have been better.  In Sectional play, the top three finishing schools advance and the top three individuals advance.  Unfortunately Olivia’s 91 was bested but not until the team had to wait for the next three schools to finish. The girls posted a team score of 489 to wrap up the 2016 season.

The girls cross country team finished 14th at the West Noble invitational.  Ariana Perez-Diener placed 14th followed by Kirsten Graves 66th, Persis Wade 110th, Yadira Sanchez 113th, Brandi Smith 128th, Veronica Qurioz 133rd and Elena Meyer-Reimer 134th.

The boys cross country team placed 3rd at the West Noble invitational.  Jason Barahona placed 3rd followed by Zach Oyer 13th, Sergei Culp 42nd, Irving Suarez 47th, Felix Perez-Diener 50th, Jonathon Snyder 51st and Angel Arreola 60th.

The Goshen girls soccer team had a strong performance at home Saturday evening defeating Fort Wayne Concordia 3-0.  Senior Aylissa Trosper once again led the RedHawks offense with two goals.  Anne Nisley also scored a goal and Hannah Kurtz had an assist.  The defense earned their 6th shutout for the season led by keeper Kassandra Rodriguez with six saves.  The girls record now stands at 9-2.

The JV boys soccer team defeated Northridge 1-0.  Emylio Romo scored a goal for Goshen and Chris Losano had an assist.  They lost to Concord 0-5 in the final JV tournament.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Are you playing high school sports for the pure pleasure of your sport, or are you using your high school experience as a stepping stone to college sports?  Getting to the college level can be very challenging.  Take football for example. There are 774 college football teams (in all divisions).  Most states have anywhere from 200-450 high schools that have a football program.  Those numbers show the challenges facing today’s high school athletes who want to move on and play at the college level.  This ratio remains about the same, regardless of your sport.  The odds are stacked against you.  That’s why you should take the time and make the effort to enjoy high school sports.  Your sporting days could come to an end at any time!

Any student wanting to apply for free/reduced lunch this school year will need to have the forms filled out and turned in before Monday.  Forms are available in the main office from Mrs. Haney, the bookkeeper.

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2016                                  

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

From Mrs. Pierce:  The theme is red-out this week!  Because Mrs. Bruder and Mrs. Swihart’s classes are the only ones participating in the 7th period competition we are going to judge a different period this week.  3rd PERIOD is the lucky period!  If your teacher e-mails me I will come visit your class!

The boys soccer program is hosting a pork, rice, and bean dinner (chip and salsa included) as a fundraiser this Saturday from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. See any boys soccer player for tickets.  Come out for a good dinner with your family and friends and then head out to our girls soccer home game!

The volleyball apparel web store is now available!  Items include shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, hats and more.  This store is open now and will close at midnight on Sunday, September 18th, so get your items while you can!  The link for the store is: http://tinyurl.com/jcasjzy.

Last week the Goshen News and Mayor Stutsman released more information about the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position.  This position will be elected by the GHS student body.  If you are a senior and are interested in running for this position, please see Mrs. Clark in room 2280.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Are you playing high school sports for the pure pleasure of your sport, or are you using your high school experience as a stepping stone to college sports?  Getting to the college level can be very challenging.  Take football for example. There are 774 college football teams (in all divisions).  Most states have anywhere from 200-450 high schools that have a football program.  Those numbers show the challenges facing today’s high school athletes who want to move on and play at the college level.  This ratio remains about the same, regardless of your sport.  The odds are stacked against you.  That’s why you should take the time and make the effort to enjoy high school sports.  Your sporting days could come to an end at any time!

Any student wanting to apply for free/reduced lunch this school year will need to have the forms filled out and turned in before Monday, September 19th.  Forms are available in the main office from Mrs. Haney, the bookkeeper.

Any student interested in doing Merit on the Move should contact their guidance counselor.  Merit on the Move is an opportunity to earn a credit you are missing after school with an Apex course. Merit on the Move will start TODAY at 3:45 p.m. in the Apex Lab, room 1060.  There are still a few spots open.  If you are interested, talk to your counselor ASAP.  The class meets Wednesdays and Thursdays after school in the Apex room.

If you missed Herff Jones, they will return TOMORROW from 7:45-8:15 a.m. to take cap and gown/graduation orders.  Students, GET YOUR ORDERS IN to avoid late fees!
