The Weeping Water Indians held their annual Pep Rally and Bonfire on Tuesday, Oct. 14th at the school. The skit this year centered around four “teams” competing to win an obstacle course race. Of course, some of the most athletic and buff athletes from Brownell-Talbot (the parents of some of the senior students) were there to show the Indians how it’s done!! The fans were also led in some great cheers by the cheerleaders and were entertained by a fast-moving dance performed by the dance team. The coaches all gave some words of inspiration to the athletes about to compete during the week. After the pep rally, even with some cold rain coming down, everybody moved outside to throw the Brownell-Talbot dummy on the very small bonfire!
Throwing the dummy on the bonfire!! GO INDIANS!!
The Weeping Water High School volleyball team played against the Malcolm Clippers in the opening game of the ECNC Conference Tournament on Thursday, Oct. 16th in Louisville. Malcolm defeated the Lady Indians in three sets. The Indians will travel to Murdoch on Monday, Oct. 20th for the Elmwood-Murdoch Invitational Tournament. Good luck Indians!
Once again the students, faculty, and community participated in the annual Homecoming Day Parade and Pep Rally on Friday, Oct. 17th. The elementary students arrived on main street first, followed closely by the junior high students and then the high schoolers. Many business owners, parents, and community members came out to show their support for the Indians and to cheer them on to victory. The senior class arrived on top of the firetruck, followed by all the sports teams (softball, cross country, volleyball, and football) on hay racks pulled by pickups. The cheerleaders got everyone fired up with some exciting cheers and the high school band played “Loyal and True” while everyone clapped along. Then it was time for some real fun. After the coaches gave their pep talks, three of the senior football players sang and did the motions to “I’m a Little Teapot”. How funny!
GO INDIANS!! The Indians beat Brownell-Talbot in a very chilly 2008
Homecoming football game. After a scoreless first quarter the Indians
scored in the second quarter to take the lead 6-0. In the third
quarter Brownell-Talbot took the lead for a short time 7-6. After an
unplanned intermission (the lights at the football field unexpectedly
went off for about 30 minutes) the Indians rallied and won the game
with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter finishing the game with a
final score of 20-7.
Following the game the Homecoming coronation was held. Attendants were: Freshman—Jessica Hansen and Greg Frenzel, Sophomore—Haley Guhl and Zach Weber, Junior—Shelby Wipf and Tim Danielson, Senior—Kori Duntz, Jenna Haveman, Whitney Wilson, Brian Bailey, James Wall, and Jack Douglas. The 2008 Homecoming King and Queen are Jenna Haveman and Brian Bailey. Congratulations Jenna and Brian! The dance was held immediately after the coronation in the high school.

The Weeping Water PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) is selling stadium chairs in order to earn money to purchase items for the elementary school. The PTO has purchased many items for the school over the years such as new playground equipment and many classroom supplies. The stadium chairs cost $40 for one and $75 for two. They hold up to 350 lbs and are very good quality. What a great idea for Christmas gifts! If you are interested in purchasing some chairs, please call Brandy Ahrens, PTO president, at 297-0876.
