Prairie Restoration

Science teacher Kale Mann is sponsoring the BV Prairie Restoration Club. The club is aims to transform the plot of land behind the freshman football fields into a grassland prairie.

According to ScienceDirect, native grasslands in Kansas have declined steadily for the past 30 years. The club will be working with city officials and various community members to complete the restoration project.

If you’d like to join the club, talk to Mann in Room 209.

Gym Curriculum

In the next few years, there are many changes to be expected in the gym curriculum. The general PE program will branch into more classes like fitness foundations and a strengthening and conditioning course.

Other elective classes will be added for students looking for more activity. Classes for specific sports and group classes such as pilates, yoga, and kick-boxing are likely going to be added in the coming years.

Girl’s Golf

The girl’s golf team qualified for State this year. The State competition took place in Salina, Kansas, and was scheduled for Monday, Oct. 15.

However, due to the near two inches of snow that had fallen on Sunday, the team was forced to wait another day for the competition. The actual State competition took place on Oct. 16, where the team placed fifth as a team. Senior Lauren Wood placed fourth individually.

“We were very excited to go to State as a team this year since we haven’t gone together in three years,” golf captain senior Lauren Reddin said. “We were supposed to play the State tournament on Monday, but it snowed Sunday night so it got postponed until Tuesday to give the snow time to melt.”
