October 20, 2015 - Mauston School District

October 20, 2015
Just a reminder that there will be no Ho ChunkYouth Services in Mauston next Monday, October
26, 2015. That is the night for the Halloween Party for the families off site. Make sure to ride
the bus home that day.
There will be no FCA meeting this week.
Girls tennis celebrated their banquet last Wednesday. They celebrated many great accomplishments...24 girls
started and 24 girls finished with a record of 5 - 7; finishing third behind Onalaska Luther and West Salem
but ahead of Black River Falls and Viroqua. MHS is saying good bye to 7 seniors. Kirstin Grzenia graduates as
a four year varsity letter winner. As a singles player for three years she compiled a seasons record of 38 wins
and 10 losses. She was second team all conference all three years...and was MVP all three years. This year
senior Morgen Makela (3 singles) and our foreign exchange student Alex Fyfe (2 singles) took home The Golden
Eagle award as they both exhibited the true traits of such a tenacious bird of prey.
