Weeping Water Football
Great job on your win against Louisville on Friday night, guys!!  The Weeping Water football team beat the Louisville Lions 46-12 bringing their season record to 4-2.  Good luck on this Friday night’s homecoming game against Brownell-Talbot.  GO INDIANS!!

Weeping Water Volleyball
The Weeping Water High School volleyball team faced the East Butler Tigers and Malcolm Clippers in a triangular on Tuesday, Oct. 7th in Weeping Water.  The Lady Indians had a rough start, losing to East Butler in two sets:  22-25 and 17-25.  East Butler then went up against Malcolm who defeated the Tigers 25-15 and 25-20.  Weeping Water came back in a strong way in their game against Malcolm--they beat the Clippers in three VERY exciting sets.  Malcolm took the first set 26-24.  Weeping Water won the next two sets 25-22 and 27-25.  Great job Lady Indians!! Keep up the good work. 

The #10 seeded Lady Indians will be heading to Louisville on Thursday, Oct. 16th for the ECNC Tournament.  We will again face Malcolm (seeded #7) at 5:00 p.m.  The winner of the Weeping Water-Malcolm game will play against #2 seeded Louisville at 8:00 p.m.  GO INDIANS!!

**By the way:  it’s great to see all the high school and junior high athletes supporting their fellow athletes at these sporting events.  I know that the enthusiasm of the spectators at last week’s volleyball game had a big impact on how well the girls played.  Thanks for your support!!

    The week of Oct. 13-17 is Homecoming Week at Weeping Water Public School.  The theme for this year is “Hollywood”.  The Student Council spent Sunday afternoon decorating the school and getting everyone psyched up for a great week of games.  As usual, each day of the week has been designated as some sort of “dress-up” day. 

    Monday—Twin day (dress like your best friend)
    Tuesday—Switch your sport day (wear the uniform of a different sport)
    Wednesday—Celebrity Day (come as your favorite celebrity)
    Thursday—Swap Team Day (come as a Brownell-Talbot athlete)
    Friday—Spirit Day (wear red, white, and black and show your spirit)

    The traditional bonfire will take place on the night of Tuesday, Oct. 14th.  The kids will meet at the school at 6:45 p.m. and walk out to the football field.  The actual bonfire will start at 7:30 p.m.  It’s always a lot of fun to see the kids (and the parents) get into the spirit of the week with this annual event.

    A pep rally has been scheduled for Friday afternoon in downtown Weeping Water.  The school kids will be dismissed from their classes at 1:00 p.m. to walk the parade route to the business district.  The pep rally is scheduled to begin at approximately 1:15 p.m. and will last for about 30 minutes.  Let’s get out and show our town’s spirit by joining in with the kids for this fun activity.  After the pep rally, the parade will take the students back to the school where they will be dismissed for the day (at approximately 2:00 p.m.). 

Football game:        Fri., Oct. 17th at 7:00 p.m. against Brownell-Talbot
Coronation:        Following the football game at the football field
Dance:            Following the coronation at the school

Future Cheerleader Camp

Sixty-Seven Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade girls participated in the “Future Cheerleader Camp” this year.  In the weeks leading up to the Sept. 26th football game, the girls practiced many times to learn cheers and the movements that go with them.  The girls, along with the Weeping Water High School Varsity Cheerleaders, entertained the crowd during half-time of the Weeping Water/Yutan game.  Good job ladies—you were wonderful!!
