Van Buren Blasts NB in BVC Football

The Van Buren Black Knights put it to the North Baltimore Tigers Friday nights at NB’s War Memorial Field, in Blanchard Valley Conference Football action.

The Van Buren Black Knights put it to the North Baltimore Tigers Friday night at NB’s War Memorial Field, in Blanchard Valley Conference Football action, 51 – 0.

In the first quarter the Tigers dodged several bullets following turnovers, and were fortunate to be down only 7 – 0. Unfortunately the 2nd quarter would see VB blow the game open, as NB struggled to gain any offensive momentum. Van Buren led at the half 31 – 0.

The 3rd and 4th quarters saw the Tigers continue to have difficulty sustaining a drive, as the Van Buren defense stymied NB’s offensive weapons, finishing off the Tigers 51 – 0. VB preserved the shutout with the first team defense returning to the game late in the 4th, as the Tigers threatened to score.

For the game, Van Buren racked up 377 total yards, to 189 yards for the Tigers. NB had two interceptions and two lost fumbles.

Taylor Bishop picked up 60 rushing yards on 19 carries. Brady Rader attempted 33 passes, completing 16 for 148 yards, with two interceptions. Sean Watson had 6 catches for 44 yards; Noah Brian 6 catches for 68 yards; Chase Naugle, David Patterson and Jimmy Smith each had a reception for 10 yards; Bishop a catch for 3 yards.

NB drops to 3 – 2 overall, 1 – 2 in the BVC. Van Buren improves to 2 – 3 overall, 2 – 1 in the BVC.

Next week North Baltimore will travel to Riverdale for a chance to right the ship against the Falcons (0 – 5) in a BVC match up. Riverdale battled Arlington last night, losing 28 – 19.

Other Blanchard Valley Conference results – McComb 56 – Arcadia 6; Leipsic 23 – Pandora-Gilboa 0

NB Students spend Spring Break Volunteering in Michigan

Habitat for Humanity benefits from local girls time…..

from Ms. Stefanie Lauer – NBHS English 11/12, iWrite, Student Council Co-Advisor, Paws for a Cause Advisor 

North Baltimore High School Seniors Mariah Archer, Allison Beaupry, Leslie Busch, and Lindsay Davis spent their spring break in Port Huron, MI building for the Blue Water Habitat for Humanity Restore. On the last day of our trip our construction manager asked the girls what their favorite part was, and while many mentioned the power tools they learned to use, they all agreed that actually “everything” was their favorite part.

I have never been so impressed with a group of people as I was with these four girls the entire week long. There was not one moment when they disappointed me, but instead I was continually surprised and inspired. There were so many obstacles that came up and so many hilarious stories along the way. Yet even when they learned we would be sleeping on the floor, or we would have to improvise for showers for the week, they never once complained. Instead, at the end of the week they responded that everything was their favorite part of the trip and they truly meant that. Their comments continued to inspire me as we drove to the site each day, and I heard them say nothing negative, but instead how appreciative they were, and how they realized how much good they have in the lives that many others don’t.

It’s my third year at NB, and I am continuously impressed, proud, and grateful for all of the students I have gotten to know over the last three years. I never have any doubt in my mind that they all could become great, successful individuals and these four girls proved that during their spring break.

Most Habitat for Humanity volunteers like to build houses because, as they said at our volunteer dinner, that is the glamorous part of Habitat. However, because of weather conditions, these girls worked at the Restore ensuring that Blue Water Habitat for Humanity can remain sustainable and afford to build more houses for years to come. Restores sell donated items at a reduced price and use the profit to build more houses. Blue Water HFH has only had their Restore since September, and there is still so much that needs to be done. From their first moment there, the girls were carrying in huge loads of wood, shingles, donations, then painting, cleaning, nailing, and learning how to use all different kinds of saws and power tools. Yet, the only comments I heard were “thank you for being patient and allowing me to learn from you,” “thank you for having us here,” and so forth.

On our last day the Restore manager told the girls they had fantastic attitudes, were tremendous helps, and were welcome back any time. He also told them to make sure to tell their parents how proud they should be of them, and how their parents did something right to raise such remarkable girls. I could not agree more.

So from the bottom of my heart, parents, NB community, and all who bought a raffle ticket or donated money so we could have that experience, I am forever grateful. According to Independent Sector, a volunteer hour in Michigan is worth $22.13, meaning the girls saved Habitat over $2655.60 on their trip. You should all be proud of the children you are raising and the community you are creating here in NB. I know I am, and I now know Port Huron, MI, and all the lives that will be touched by their work, will be too.

Thank You!
Thank You!

Thanks again to everyone who made this trip possible,
