  • Settje and Hanel Capture Gold at Norfolk Classic

    (L to R): Chloe Hanel and Brynn Settje

    Each year the Norfolk Classic is held at Norfolk High School for the most elite track athletes in the area.  Coaches submit times and marks, and the top 8 best competitors in each event from throughout Northeast Nebraska are invited to compete.

    On Thursday, April 27, two Clarkson-Leigh track athletes qualified to compete at the Classic.  Leigh sophomore Brynn Settje competed in two events, and Clarkson junior Chloe Hanel qualified in three.

    “Being able to get invited to the Norfolk Classic was a great opportunity for me,” Settje said. “It was a great experience that I got to be a part of. The day went very well for both me and Chloe.”

    Despite the tough competition, Hanel finished 1st in High Jump, 1st in 100M Hurdles, and 3rd in 300M Hurdles. Settje received 1st in Long Jump and 4th in Triple Jump.

    “Competing at the Norfolk Classic is always a fun experience for athletes and it is an opportunity to compete against some of the best athletes in the area,” Patriot track coach Brianne Bachman said.

    “Between Brynn and Chloe, they came home with 3 first place medals, a 3rd place, and a 4th place medal. They both had some really good marks and times as we are moving into the final stretch of the season. The track athletes have been working hard and we are looking forward to a strong end of the season. Go Patriots!”

  • Kindergarten Round Up is a Success!

    25 incoming Kindergarteners and their families had the opportunity to attend Kindergarten Round Up at Leigh Elementary on April 28, 2023. 

    The students all came with mixed emotions, with everything from excited, to nervous, to shy, but as soon as they walked out of the elementary, they had the biggest smiles on their faces. They were all very excited to become a big kid in Kindergarten next year. 

    Even though their time together was short, they still were able to complete many activities. During their time together, the students were split into groups for social emotional play, listening to a story, and showing off their fine motor skills by writing their names, coloring, and writing letters. 

    Another fun feature this year was getting to have their picture taken signing their “letters of intent” for Kindergarten just like future college athletes do!

    Kindergarten teacher Michkayla Wietfeld said, "I am excited to watch the 2023-2024 students grow, learn, and succeed in Kindergarten!"

  • Golfers Take 4th at Steepleview

  • Student Opinion: Double-Period Weight Class

    Many schools, like ours, do a period bell schedule, with each class around 50 minutes long.  Others opt for a block schedule with classes around 80-90 minutes.  While I like the period schedule, some classes just weren’t made to fit ideally into that time span.

    Weights is one of those classes.  When students are getting shredded in weights during the first period, many times we can’t get through our entire workout.  Sometimes we do get through our entire workout and still run late to our next class by the time we shower. If we had a weight lifting class for two periods back to back, we would have time to finish our workout, shower, and get to class on time. 

    Next year, Leigh is offering another weight lifting class during fifth period. Although this will be another opportunity for students whose first period is taken up by a mandatory class to get in the weight room, it still doesn’t solve the problem of needing a double workout period for those who have room in their schedule for it. This would be very beneficial for students who are taking the class to reach personal fitness goals and not just waste a class period. 

    I personally think that a double weight class would be beneficial to me because I use the first period to get stronger. A few other students and I don't waste any time in the weight room, but we still find it hard to fit everything into our workout. I believe that if we had a double class period, students would find that they are getting better results easier. 

    I understand that the school wants equal opportunity for all students to get into the weight room, and that we need a balanced range of classes, but I still believe a double weight class would be an opportunity for students that are not as physically active outside of school to do something physical, and it would be beneficial to for many students that wish to see changes in their physical appearance or their strength.

  • Class of 2023 Senior Spotlight: Mason Whitmore

    On February 15th, 2005, in Columbus, NE, Craig Whitmore and Kacy Wietfeld were blessed with the birth of their son, Mason Ryan Whitmore. 

    In addition to his parents, Mason has two step parents, Brent Wietfeld and Nicole Whitmore. Along with that, he also has six half-siblings: Brylen (7); Braxen (6); and Evan Wietfeld (4), as well as Alexa (11) and Ellica Whitmore (3), and Karissa Nickolite (26).

    Mason’s grandparents are Kelly Arndt of Platte Center and Steven Jenny of Columbus. Mason’s family wouldn’t be complete without his dog, Stella. 

    If you don’t know Mason, three words that he describes himself with are funny, outgoing, and friendly. Mason has been involved in many sports and activities throughout his four years of high school. He has been a part of football, basketball, and FFA for four years; Youth Advisory Committee for three years; and track and FCCLA for one year.

    Mason states that his biggest high school accomplishment was winning the State Championship against Neligh-Oakdale. Throughout his years in high school, he has received several achievements and accolades. He has received 1st team All-District for football and “Student of the Month.”

    Mason claims that his favorite high school memory was watching Mr. Faltys make his school debut by attempting to slide on the ground, but instead, he ended up flopping and ripping his shirt. His most embarrassing high school moment was wearing Mrs. Hillen’s old cheer uniform in front of the whole school during the Homecoming pep rally. 

    Mason’s favorite things to do outside of school and extracurricular activities are hanging out with friends, hunting, or working. His favorite class in school is shop class. Creed 2 is his favorite movie and the Los Angeles Lakers are his favorite sports team. Mason’s favorite food is chicken alfredo. 

    Mason’s future plans include attending Wayne State College. There he will be going to school for Industrial Technology/Construction Management. In 10-15 years, Mason hopes to have a family and own his own business. 

    If Mason won the lottery, he claims he will pay off all of his loans then donate money to people in need. Three things on Mason’s bucket list would be to go skydiving, take a trip and go hunting for bears, and visit another country. If he would go anywhere in the world, he would travel to the Bahamas because the weather there is a lot nicer than it is here. 

    Mason admires his parents most in his life. He claims they have always helped him with problems in his life and have always been there for him. He also states that they have all taught him many life lessons. 

    Mason’s life advice to underclassmen is “Don't tell yourself you’ll do it later because you probably won’t!”

    We wish Mason the best of luck with is future and all he hopes to accomplish!
