We have better plans, better networks and better service. BCBSWY.com/BETTER Trash round-up On October 20, the Newcastle Saddle and Sirloin FFA Chapter decided to perform communi- ty service by completing their semi-annual highway cleanup. The members of the Newcastle FFA spent about an hour clean- ing up the roadside on Highway 16, which runs over the bypass and alongside the Newcastle High School. In this time theylpicked up trash on both sides of the highway. This task will be performed once again in the spring. "It helped us give back to the community that has supported us for so long," FFA member Kaprina Jones stated. "This fills in the last part of the Ag education motto, 'Living to Serve,'" Grace Sandrini added. Other participating members thought it was a fun and enjoy- able way to build comradery and are excited to do their part in the next highway cleanup.

"This race is tricky because it will come down to-whom- ever shows up that day and has: A,~ i,'~dependent ticense~ of the Blue Cross ~nd Blue Shield Association that much better of a start," Scribner began. "Rachel ended up fifth and she came up to me and asked what she had done wrong and I told her that she did everything right. She dropped time, her breakout was right with everybody when it had been slower at Conference, so it really was just an incred- ibly fast race across the board and exciting to watch." According to Scribner, all six swimmers turned together, everybody's feet touched the wall at the same time and everybody was coming back swimming neck and neck. He went on to note that in this short, fast race nothing is guaranteed, despite seeding. The person who was seeded first this year didn't get first, because when there's only a few tenths of a second sepa- rating all six swimmers, it's anybody's race to claim. The 100 Backstroke was also an exciting race for Scribner and his team. Returning state champion Rachel Henkle and Waggener each were entered into the race, along with the number one seeded swimmer from Jackson. In the race, the three were swimming next to each other with the two Dogies side-by-side. "Mikenna was on the Jackson girl the entire race," Scribner beamed. "She kind of missed her last flip turn oth- erwise I think she would have taken her, but it was a really exciting race. Mikenna came in only one second behind the winner and R~chel came in only half a second behind Mikenna. To have two fast backstroke swimmers on one team is awesome." The relay teams also swam fast and competed well. The swimmers for each team were the same as in the finals at Conference and the times that each dropped from one weekend to the next was significant. The 200 Medley dropped 2.22 seconds, the 200 Free dropped 6.23 seconds, and the 400 Free dropped 7.48 seconds. The 200 Medley team went in seeded third, and according to Scribner it was a good race. "We had our fastest time of the season in prelims and then posted an even fa~ter time in the finals," he repolrted. The team of Rachel Henkle, Waggener, Crabtre, and Sarah Henkle finished in third behind Jackson and Powell. Rachel swam her fastest backstroke time of 28.9 in that race and all the other Lady Dogies were also on their best time. The 200 Free Relay final's team made up of Curren, Rachel and Sarah Henkle, and Crabtree went in seeded ninth. In prelims MaKengie Wagoner was in the relay as Scribner was looking to see where Sarah would end up in the backstroke, but when she didn't make it to finals, Scribner put her into the relay and the squad dropped five seconds from the prelim time to end up beating Cody to claim eighth place. In the prelims of the 400 Free Relay, Scribner didn't think that his team had made it into finals, however they ended up beating Douglas by .35 so that bumped them over the latter to advance and ulti- mately finish sixth overall. "That really made me glad as Shaylee was a member of that relay and since she is a senior, I was glad she got to place in the finals at the State Meet. Nathina swam the Fly in the Medley relay, so she also was able to be on a state finals team," Scribner grinned. Though the team didn't bring home any individual championships from this year's State Meet, there can be no arguing that they performed extraordinarily well. Waggener and Rachel Henkle's times in the 100 Backstroke put them into the top 10 all-time fastest for the Lady Dogies. In fact, the squad has eight Newcastle top-ten athletes this year. Rachel Ehlers and Sarah Henkle made it into the top ten in diving, even though they were unable to qualify for State, and Rachel Henkle also made it in the breaststroke and the 50 free. With the 2015 season behind him, Scribner began to speculate about his team's chances next season. "We are losing three seniors, but I think that the 200 Medley relay should be okay," he nodded. "We will lose Nathina in the Fly leg of the race so we need someone to step up there, but I'm confident that we should still be very competitive." "I've got a lot of things planned for off-season and for next summer, so I think that we will go into next season pretty strong," Scribner smiled: 3A State Swim and Dive Championship @ Gillette 10129-30/15 1.
