            Ten Hyshamites hit the slopes of Red Lodge on Saturday looking for adventure. All ten returned later in the day, tired and a little sunburned, some of them a little worse for the wear but most reporting that a good time was had.

Student Council Hosts Ski Trip

            The bus bound for the mountain left Hysham at 5:00 a.m., and the seven kids and three chaperones were on the mountain and decked out in gear by 9:00.  Two were new to skiing and boarding and  took lessons prior to hitting the mountain while more veteran boarders and skiers headed up the lifts for multiple trips down the mountain.

            The cost of the trip was covered by student council, including a gas station breakfast in Billings and Godfather’s Pizza on the way back through Billings.

            Those in attendance were a little bummed because some of the slopes were closed due to the wind, but  for the most part, it was a good day to be on the mountain.

Academic Olympic Teams Compete

What is the hottest kind of star? In Article X of this treaty, the U.S. and the U.K. agreed to use their best endeavors to abolish slavery. Name this 1814 agreement.

These were some of the questions from the afternoon roads at Academic Olympics, held in Miles City 8-9. Students from Wibaux to Hysham, Jordan to Ekalaka, met up to test their knowledge in a decades-old competition held in the spring.

The Hysham Junior High AO crew took seventh place out of  the twenty-one teams, losing its first round but winning all subsequent rounds for the rest of the day.  The crew brought home ribbons as well with the sixth graders earning third, fourth, eighth, and ninth on the written test. The team’s written test score ranked them in the middle of the pack, but the oral rounds pushed them to the seventh place finish.

The high school team competed on Wednesday, March 9, and while they were able to be contenders in the oral rounds, they did not place out of the twenty-five teams representing  southeastern Montana.                                                                                                                 - By Glenda Skillen
