March 6-11, 2023 Marysville Jr/Sr High School
What a weekend! Hopefully, you are coming up for air this Sunday after the excitement in the Activity Center Saturday night. And by now you know that our boy's basketball team is headed the State Tournament in Hutchinson this Thursday. To the Team: you've worked hard this year and this trip is well-deserved, but as Coach Brown would remind you, there is still work to be done.
My note this week is really about thanking all the people who made hosting this sub-state possible. We had workers who opened gates early and stayed late, concession stand groups that worked hard to keep fans fed and hydrated, game workers who were here every night, custodians keeping our facilities looking great, and countless others who volunteered their time to do the little things to make everything run smoothly. Our band sounded great, our student section rocked the bleachers, and our fans made the atmosphere like none other. Deb Nelsen, our activies secretary and Michelle Schmelzle, our school secretary, were amazing in their organization and help to the end and last, but certainly not least, Cole Fredrickson, our athletic director, ran a great sub-state tournament. It was a huge undertaking, but well worth it as I'm sure everyone would agree. By now you also know: NO SCHOOL THURSDAY!!! Let''s get down to Hutchinson and keep our team rolling! Go Dogs!
Tim Woodcock, Principal
