Winter sports update; projects progressing

posted Mar 8, 2018, 8:09 AM by Exira-EHK Administrator

The good news is that March is here and hopefully the cold and snow will soon be a distant memory and we will be able to have a normal school week which will allow our students to get back on a routine.

I want to thank everyone that went to Des Moines last week to support the girl's basketball team. Our communities were well represented and our students were complimented on their behavior as I had several people tell me they were some of the politest student fans. It is always nice to hear positives from individuals who work at these events that we have great students in our district! 

The girls qualified for state for the fourth year in a row! It was a great season led by our two Seniors, Sophia Peppers and Kealey Nelson. There are not many student-athletes that can say they made it to state all four years of their career. We have a strong nucleus returning next year, but the two seniors who both scored over 1,000 points for their career will create a gap that others will need to fill. 
The girls lost a tough semi-final game to 3-time state champion Springville. Sophia was named to the State All-Tournament team for the second year in a row which is a tremendous honor. Sophia and Kealey were 1st team All-Conference and Ellie Schultes was 2nd team. Congratulations to Coach Petersen and his staff and to all of the girls on the basketball team!

The boy's basketball team finished a successful season and had 3 representatives on the All-Conference teams: Cole Burmeister 1st team, and Josh Pettepier and Dakota Rold 2nd team. In addition, Cole Madsen and Trey Nelson were honorable mention.  The season ended with a loss to state qualifier Council Bluffs Saint Albert. Cole Madsen, our lone senior, will be missed next year, but with a number of returners, the team should be focused on their goals for next year.  

The wrestlers, with only one senior finishing the season, grew as a team and Dawson Carey was our representative in districts. It was good to see a few of our younger students show improvement and hopefully, we will be able to add to our line up next year.

At the February board meeting, contractors were approved for our general obligation bond projects. I will provide additional timelines as we meet with the contractors and figure out starting dates. The bids came in at budget which allows us to move forward instead of sending out to rebid with different designs. KPE, our architect, and the school board were pleased with the number of bids we received and were happy that some of our local contractors submitted a bid and were awarded different parts of the enhancements. 

This facility update could not have happened without the support of our communities because we had 72% vote yes for the board which is impressive with the economy and our demographics. Once the projects have been completed we will open up the buildings for the communities to see the improvements. 

Have a great few weeks and hopefully we will see Spring soon!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
