YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school. All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:50 p.m. to hand out the snacks. All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

SPORTS SCORES:

Brynn Shoup-Hill shut down Wawasee, throwing a complete game shutout and leading the girls varsity softball to a 7-0 victory on Friday.  Goshen had the bats going early in the game.  Olivia Koshmider, Makayla Snyder, and Klair Sweet each had two hits apiece.  Alexis Navarro and Sara Breniser also added a double for the day.  The RedHawks had eleven hits total.  Brynn Shoup-Hill allowed only four hits, while striking out seven with zero walks.  The RedHawks are now 8-7 overall and 3-3 in the NLC.

Girls JV softball won big beating Wawasee 15-0.  Isabel DeGraff pitched a gem of a game striking out seven and only allowed one hit for the night. Isabel not only pitched well she also had three hits at the plate.  Jordan DeGraff had two hits.  Khylin Shepard hit her first high school home run and drove in three RBI’s.  Noemi Vela also added a double for the RedHawks.  The JV is currently 5-4 overall and 3-2 in the NLC.

The girls varsity tennis team improved to 7-4 with a nail biter win over Westview 3-2. Kathryn Detweiler and Brooke Grewe at 1 Doubles and Sage Christner and Sophie Kirkton at 2 Doubles got the first two points for the RedHawks, but it came down to a 3rd set at 3 Singles before Madi Rittenhouse was able to close it out. The JV swept all three matches with wins coming from Joya Drenth, Megan Murphy, Abril Diaz, and Jade Thomas.

Boys varsity baseball dropped a conference game to Wawasee after taking a 6-0 lead. Jack Immel highlighted the RedHawk offense with a three run home run early in the game. Kaleb Nine came in relief late in the game to get the RedHawks out of a late jam, but were unable to score enough in extra innings to beat the Warriors.

Boys JV baseball took the loss vs. Wawasee, losing 5-3.  Jocsan Sanchez pitched an excellent game for Goshen, striking out eleven batters.  Goshen had opportunities but couldn’t string together enough hits.  Mason Schrock scored twice after reaching on two base hits.  Sanchez and Ezequiel Moreno each drove in a run for Goshen.

Boys varsity baseball dropped a road game to New Prairie by a score of 11-1. The RedHawks totaled seven hits in the game.  Colin Turner and Skylar Reyes each managed multiple hits.  Turner led the way with three hits in three at bats.

Goshen lost Game 2 by a score of 7-5, but outhit New Prairie in the losing effort.  The RedHawks scattered seven hits, led by Mason Schrock and Jocsan Sanchez with two hits each.  Schrock also pitched four innings, striking out seven.  Most importantly, Goshen did not commit a single error in Game 2, which is a sign of great improvement.

Girls varsity tennis was able to win three courts and decide the match against Bethany before the rain started. The 1 doubles pair of Kathryn Detweiler and Brooke Grewe were first off the court with a 6-2, 6-1 victory. The 2 Doubles tandem of Sophia Kirkton and Sage Christner overcame dropping four straight games in the first set to close the 2nd set 6-0 and were joined shortly later by 3 Singles player Madi Rittenhouse who won 6-1, 6-0. The JV swept all five positions, including wins by Maiah Huffman, Chelsea Cortez, and Abby Wileman.

GHS Student Laura Elliott to be Honored at IndyStar Sports Awards

From Laura’s coach, Sean Smuts:

I received an email from our state director of Champions Together (The IHSAA side of Unified Sports), Lee Lonzo stating that this award was coming out and they would like Unified Sports coaches to consider nominating an athlete from their program that met certain criteria, including being part of a Unified Program or Special Olympics Athlete.  After careful consideration, I came to the decision that Laura Elliott was a great candidate for this honor.

I wrote her nomination and filled out the appropriate forms to formally nominate Laura.  Some time passed and I received an email from Larry Kissinger and shortly after from Lee Lonzo and Jeff Mohler (from Special Olympics) congratulating Laura and informing me that she was a finalist in the category of Girls Special Olympics Athlete of the Year (a premier award). Since her honor was announced, Laura has been more excited and was able to share with her teammates the great honor that was given to her.  The Unified RedHawks surrounded her with love and shared with her their deepest congratulations and heartfelt support for her. I very much look forward to accompanying her on May 5th to this event!

The IndyStar Sports Awards recognizes and honors the top athletic accomplishments in Indiana High School Sports. This event is hosted by the IndyStar and will take place May 5, 2019 at Clowes Memorial Hall of Butler University. The show features various awards, contests and a special appearance from Danica Patrick. The red carpet will open at 6 p.m. and the awards show begins promptly at 7 p.m.

From Mr. Smuts’ nomination of Laura:

There are several team members that care about others, but Laura Elliott has taken that care to a new level, where she loves and wants to give all regardless of what it takes. She exhibits a concern and love that time and time again is truly selfless.

Laura has been working with our City Council to see that a park that is inclusive is put in Goshen. She had done research and noticed that other cities had parks where anyone could play regardless of their ability level. Laura wanted to make sure that everyone in our city had a chance and a place where they could go and be accepted for who they are and not have to ask “Can I play too?” Laura spent many hours outside of school and in school working on this dream.

The dream became a reality in December when it was announced that the Goshen Parks and Recreation Department was moving forward with the idea that Laura had brought to them, and that the city was set to break ground for the inclusive park in spring of 2019. Her hard work paved the way for her to receive the Ralph W. Braun Spirit of Ability Award. The award is presented to people who emulate the qualities that the Braun Ability founder, Ralph Braun, displayed: Selflessness, compassion, and an unwavering dedication to do what is right for people in the disability community.

Laura will give everything and more in the track meets we hold throughout the season, and is instrumental in cheering on her teammates when she is not performing an event. She does anything that the coaches ask of her without complaint or reservation. She also reminds us if we forget to do something such as the “team cheer” where we highlight different students for the great things we see them doing in practice. She will not let us leave practice without doing the cheers because, as she says “we need to remember the good things people do, not the bad.”

Laura also participates in Special Olympics of Elkhart County. She embodies their mission and also serves as an amazing ambassador of what Special Olympics can do for you. She is the first to talk about how amazing the program is and the first to volunteer for anything.

Congratulations to you, Laura! Well done!!

4-22-19 Joint Statement with Goshen Police (English/Spanish)

Statement from Goshen Community Schools and Goshen Police Department

4/22/19

This morning, school and police department officials became aware of statements of concern posted on a GHS student’s Snapchat. In further investigating the situation, it has been entirely dealt with and the investigation has shown that there were no credible threats to anyone. However, in keeping with our tradition of transparency, we wanted to make the community aware of this situation.

Since this month is the twenty year anniversary of the Columbine tragedy, it does bring up, once again, the realities of today’s world. These events are difficult for many students to process and understand.  It is not uncommon for young people to express their anxiety in misguided or inappropriate ways, and Goshen authorities will continue to take any such expressions very seriously. While this threat was deemed not to be credible, the school district and law enforcement officials always work together to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and will continue to be diligent in our efforts to do so.

Thank you to the entire community for partnering with us for the safety and well-being of every Goshen resident.

 

Declaración de la Corporación Escolar de Goshen y del Departamento de Policía de Goshen

22 de abril de 2019

Esta mañana, los oficiales policíacos y escolares se dieron cuenta de la declaración preocupante de un estudiante de la preparatoria GHS, publicada en Snapchat. Se llevó a fondo una investigación, y ésta demostró que dichas amenazas no eran creíbles para nadie. Sin embargo, de acuerdo con nuestra tradición de transparencia, deseamos que todos estén enterados sobre esta situación.

Dado a que este mes es el vigésimo aniversario de la tragedia de Columbine, esto pone sobre la mesa, una vez más, la realidad del mundo de hoy. Este tipo de eventos es difícil de procesar y comprender para muchos estudiantes. No es raro que los jóvenes expresen su ansiedad de manera equivocada o inapropiada. Las autoridades de Goshen continuarán tomando muy en serio cualquiera de este tipo de acciones. Si bien se consideró que esta amenaza no es creíble, el distrito escolar y los funcionarios encargados de hacer cumplir la ley seguirán colaborando para garantizar la seguridad de todos los estudiantes y personal escolar, y continuarán siendo diligentes en su esfuerzo por hacerlo.

Les agradecemos a todos por su colaboración en resguardar la seguridad y el bienestar de todos los residentes de Goshen.

GHS Girls Track Recognized for Exemplary Behavior

Congratulations to the GHS Girls Track team, who was recognized for exemplary behavior by a coach from another school and the IHSAA.

“I just wanted to write a quick email about Goshen’s track team. They were impressive. I have no idea if they were any good. (inserted smile emoji) Their coach was all over the place yelling encouragement at them. The team lined the sides of the track yelling for their teammates and cheering them on – all of them. They have a large team and there were always girls by the finish line cheering and encouraging. They all looked like they were having fun. It just really made an impression. There seems to be a lot of positive interaction in track in general – the girls from all teams congratulate each other at the end of races. Goshen just stood out last night as a team. Thought I’d pass that on.”   Keshena Hunter

Congratulations to Girls Track Head Coach Aaron Willis, the rest of the coaching staff, and the student athletes. Great job representing Goshen!!

Growing Goshen Together/Creciendo Goshen Juntos

Growing Goshen Together is a series of conversations to be organized by Goshen Community Schools and the Community Relations Commission aimed at bringing community members together to learn from each other, and to gain new appreciation and understanding for others. We want the community members to reflect the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, and political beliefs that exist in our community.

As a part of this joint project, the two agencies will host a pilot community conversation on Thursday, April 25, 2019. Things learned from that pilot event would be used to design, propose, and implement a series of events in the fall of 2019.

If you would like to be a part of this exciting conversation, please contact Lori Martin at Goshen Schools by emailing lmartin@goshenschools.org or calling 574-533-8631 to RSVP and register your interest. To learn more and register online, go to: goshenindiana.org/GrowingTogether

Brandi Smith was the sole 1st place finisher for the meet (Long Jump), 2nd place finishes by Sasha Ramos (Shot Put/Discus) and Mallory Wood (Pole Vault), and 3rd place finishes by Kassidy Bestul (1600m) and Mallory Wood (100m).

Boys JV baseball fought back from a five-run deficit and came up one run short, losing to Jimtown 9-8.  Mason Schrock led the offense with two hits, drawing two walks, driving in three runs, and swiping four bases.  Mitchel Daniels added two hits, and Jocsan Sanchez, James Troyer, Isaiah Park, and Camden Kercher each drove in a run in the failed comeback.  Five errors and eleven walked batters were ultimately too much for the team to overcome in the loss.  The team is now 2-1.
