We just completed an exciting Winter sport season and are beginning competition with the Spring activities. The Winter sport season was full of some of the greatest highlights in school history: High School Boys Basketball: The MV Boys BB team qualified for State for the first time in 31 years (1988) after winning Sub‐State as well as the regular season Flint Hills League Championship for the first time in school history with a perfect 6‐0 record. The Vikings lost in the first round of State to the eventual State runner‐up, Hutchinson Trinity Catholic.
KSHSAA Sportsmanship Certificate – We are excited to announce that Mission Valley HS received the KSHSAA Sportsmanship certificate which is awarded to schools whose Cheerleaders, Student section, Basketball team/coaches and MV patrons are judged according to a rubric based on how well each school follows KSHSAA’s Sportsmanship Rule (Rule 52). This award is not given out lightly and is an award that is earned by the school’s student body and MV patrons! In order to qualify for medals and/or plaque, schools must participate in all three days of the State tournament.
Great Job Viking Nation!!! HS Wrestling: Nolan Parker (HWT), Jon Grame (195) and Caleb Hinck (170) competed at the State Wrestling Meet at Fort Hays State University in Hays. Caleb Hinck finished his career with 115+ victories, while Nolan Parker finished his season with a record of 31‐12 as he lost in double OT in the Consolation Quarterfinals at the State Meet.
Girls State Wrestling ‐ Shelby Kessler took 3rd place in her weight class at the Girls State in McPherson 3 The Mission Valley Wrestling team has earned the distinction of First Team All‐Academic Team by the Kansas Wrestling Coaches Assn. (KWCA). What a great accomplishment by our 2019 wrestlers!
Just a reminder that ‘Weekly Eligibility’ for all extracurricular activities carries over to the spring seasons as well. The eligibility list tracks ALL MV 7‐12 students, not just those out for activities.
All patrons and groups MUST fill out a ‘Facility’ and ‘Fund‐Raising’ Request Form PRIOR to fund‐raising and using any MV facilities. This will help keep administration, secretaries, custodians and staff aware of calendar and facility items.
Respectfully submitted, Rod Hasenbank, 7‐8 Principal/7‐12 A.D.
