Crestview High School had its Fun Day on May 8 for grades 9-12. For the Fun Day, students had teams for Tug of War for both boys and girls. There was also a watermelon eating contest, along with a relay race, an egg toss, and balloon toss.

The winners of each competition earned points for their grade, and the class with the most points wins bragging rights for the year. Senior Braden Van Cleave said, “I enjoy Fun Day because it gives us a day to relax and have fun with our classmates one last time.”

The Crestview Middle School eighth-graders are in Washington, D.C., for their annual History trip. The eighth-graders will be in D.C. for the whole week and will learn about the history of Washington and the United States government. They will visit museums, Arlington National Cemetery, the White House, and many more attractions. Eighth grade history teacher Mr. Lautzenheiser plans the annual trip to Washington, D.C.

The varsity boys’ baseball team started its tournament on Wednesday with Lincolnview at home. The winner will face either Parkway and Upper Scioto Valley at the higher seeded team’s field. All games start at 5 p.m. during the district tournament. Senior Derek Biro said, “I have a good feeling about this year and what we could do in tournament.”

Go Knights!

End of course exams are mostly complete at Crestview High School. With testing going on, the senior class got a small delay on May 1 and 2. For the underclassmen who no longer have to pass the OGTs, these exams are extremely important. These exams are so important because instead of passing OGTs, they must accumulate points from their end of course exams and have at least 18 points to graduate. Students have been working hard to earn as many points as possible this year.

The Crestview High School Fun Day is coming up and is planned for Monday, May 8. Fun Day activities include tug of war, watermelon eating contest, a relay, and other activities. In tug of war there are guys, girls, and co-ed teams. The guy teams will face each other, along with the girls, so it is a fair playing field. In the relay, it is each grade versus another grade, such as seniors versus juniors.

The Crestview varsity baseball team is undefeated in league play with an 11-4 record overall. The team has been rolling through NWC play and will look to continue its success in an upcoming game against Delphos Jefferson. While the Crestview baseball team has been doing well, the varsity softball team has been on a roll for their last few games too. The Lady Knights are now 4-2 in the NWC, but have struggled in out-of-league play with a 9-10 overall record. Go Knights!

The Crestview FFA held their monthly meeting this past Monday. This was the first meeting with the new representatives in charge since the FFA banquet. They discussed finances from this year’s sales and their budget. Another discussion was about the chapter sponsors to renew them, add some, or get rid of some. Junior FFA member Trevor Gibson said, “I felt the meeting went very well. Everything was smooth and no interruptions happened.”

The after prom will be at Olympic Lanes bowling alley in Van Wert from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. Senior Dylan Grandstaff said, “I enjoy prom and you better believe I’m the first one to after-prom.”

Wednesday the juniors got the chance to take the ACT. They showed up to school like a normal school day. Then they took their test in the study hall room and once the test was done they were allowed to leave school. The past few weeks they have been preparing for this test. Junior Nick Springer said before the test, “I’m gonna try hard on this test.”

There are only 27 days left of school but it’s only almost half way through the fourth nine weeks. The students will be getting the interim report to see how their grades. Then once they see they are struggling they have a few more weeks to make up some work or study harder for the next test. Sophomore Griffin Painter said, “I have a good feeling about my interim report.”
