Gallatin High Update

Week of March 8-12, 2021

DECA Update

The Gallatin and Bozeman High DECA clubs collaborated to host a spikeball tournament at each high school. Last Wednesday the winning teams competed in the Raptor gym. We are happy to report, the Gallatin High champions defeated the BHS team in the crosstown finals.

However, the real winner was the local HRDC as the two clubs combined to raise over $1000 to support their community development programs. Thanks to all of the teams who participate and thank you to the Spikeball corporation for providing prizes for the top teams.

The state DECA competition was also held this past week. Students competed virtually from GHS and awards will be announced soon.

State Tournament Results

The Gallatin Raptors swim team had great success at state and we have our second individual state champion! Julia Huffmaster set a new state record and won the state title for the 200 yard IM. Julia also won the 100 butterfly. Danica Varda also had a great meet finishing second in the 100 breast stroke and 3rd in the 50 freestyle. The Raptor girls finished second in the 200 freestyle relay. With just five swimmers, the girls still finished 4th overall. The Raptor boys finished in the top ten at 9th. An impressive first outing for the Raptor swimming program.

Raptor Wrestling also had a great weekend and Felix Peterson was the first male Raptor to place at the state tournament. He finished in 4th place overall in his weight class.

Thank You

Dear BSD7 families:

We are thrilled to report that, with your generous support, we raised $28,000 through the Pack the Sack fundraiser and presented the check to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank earlier this week (see photo.) We began this fundraiser last year because IT’S HARD TO LEARN WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY! The money helps pay for KidsPacks, bags of nutritious food that go home with kids in need at the end of the week. We are humbled by your support.

With gratitude,

Judy Slate

Bozeman Schools Foundation Director
