You can hear Grace Allgaier and Casey Jo Baker blowing their whistle at 7 o’clock in the morning every school day preparing for their marching season.
September 15th was the preview parade for New Haven High School. There was a lot of preparation going on for the New Haven High School and Middle School marchers. Every morning at 7 o’clock, you could hear them marching and strengthening their abilities.
When asked if there are any nerves this season, sophomore Johnna Bloch said, “I am somewhat nervous because being a Shamrockette is different, and there are a lot of people watching you.”
Many of the Marching Shamrocks said they are excited for the Mizzou homecoming and all of the marching band competitions.
Mrs. Koch, the director of the Marching Shamrocks, said, “The Marching Shamrocks are off to a very strong start and continue to improve every day. This season will be very strong!”
In marching band season, or any other sports season, you have that one thing you look forward to.
When Sarah McKernan, senior, was asked what she is looking forward to this season she said, “The parades-- it's so fun to march through the streets with everybody.”
A freshman, Ellie Westermeyer, responded with, “I am looking forward to being with people I didn’t know.”
Mrs. Koch addressed whether or not she had any concerns for the season: “I have no doubt that our students will perform to the best of their ability and represent us well all season.”
Mrs. Koch is looking forward to the season and so is the rest of the Marching Shamrocks!

The September 11th attacks left many people devastated with the loss of family and friends, taking almost 3,000 lives. A total of four planes were hijacked that day, two of which were flown straight into the Twin Towers, one hitting the Pentagon just right outside of Washington D.C., and the final one crashing into a field in Pennsylvania.
Many students weren’t born or old enough to remember this tragic event, but in asking the question, “how do you think you would react if you were old enough to remember this day?”, this is what the students had to say.
Lauren Gerlemann, senior, stated, “I think I would have more feelings for these people. I feel for them now, but I would feel more if I could recall the events of that day.”
Julia McIntyre, junior, said, “I would probably fear future terrorist attacks. I would have been extremely devastated and sad the day the event occurred. I would have been worried about our country.”
Kallie Stubblefield, senior, said, “I think I would have felt more somber on 9/11 of this year if I was old enough to remember the day.”
However, when the question was asked, “did this impact your life in any way?”, two students had something to say.
Elizabeth Hughes, senior, stated, “Yes, my aunt was in the Air Force at the time and was on standby to go up to New York.”
Olivia Williams, junior, said, “9/11 was a scary event for my family. My grandpa was traveling for a business trip. When the attacks happened, everything was so chaotic and confusing. No one knew if my grandpa was flying or anything. Since cell phones weren’t as popular as they are now, we couldn’t get a hold of him. We later found out that he hadn’t been flying and he was in Ohio until he could get home.”
All teachers could remember this day, most being in elementary or middle school. They were at school or working when this event occurred, and some reflected below about what had happened.
Ms. McCroskey mentioned, “On September 11th that year, I was in elementary school, quite oblivious to what was happening around me. But I noticed things were strange-- the teachers were acting oddly, the school was quiet. And I remember my friend, Heather, explaining what had happened in the cubby room the next day-- explaining things very simply but enthusiastically in her 9-year-old way. I was very young, so I didn't understand. But in years since, the footage obviously rocks me to my core.”
Aaron Peirick said, “I was attending 6th grade at New Haven Elementary. I found out when I got home from school. It was really too big of an event and it happened too far away from me for me to understand how big it was. I just wanted to go outside and play basketball with my friends.”
Doug Peirick stated that he was “working at Seitter's putting the ad into the computer system. At first I was in shock that it happened at all. Then I had a lot of different feelings going on as the day continued. I was saddened by all the life that was lost and I was also mad at those that caused this senseless tragic event.”
Not everybody might have been born or old enough to remember this event, but it is still a day to always look back on and remember.

At the New Haven High School track, there is currently a shed under construction. The work on the shed continued this past weekend on Saturday, September 16th.
Mr. Hoener was asked how long he thinks the shed will take to be completed now and responded with, “I don’t see us finishing until spring, but it should be functional before the track and field season starts.”
A few staff members and administrators were asked what the shed will be used for and what the ideas are for it. Mr. Steinhoff answered, “There will be bathrooms, but the main purpose of the building is obviously for storage. Of course, that would include all of the track equipment such as the pole vault pit, the high jump pit, hurdles, and the equipment that is used for field events. However, we also intend to store equipment for all of our outdoor activities in there. This would include some baseball and softball equipment, pitching machines, and supplies for our cross country meet. The building has also been designed so that we can run concessions out of it and also time our meets from it rather than having to set up outside.”
Mr. Hoener addressed the costs so far by commenting, “So far an estimation would be $30,000. The funds have come from money leftover from the track fundraiser and from donations, so none of the money is coming from the district.”
Staff members were next asked about their feelings about the shed, and Mr. Tucker responded with, “I think it’s great. I would like to thank the workers and contractors for working on the shed for free and giving up their free time to work on the shed.”
The last question that was given to the staff members was if there are any other projects in mind, and Mr. Hoener said, “A sidewalk along the north side of school would be next if the school board allows it.”
Thank you to those who are working on the shed in your own free time. We are all excited to see what this shed has in store for our school and our athletic programs.

The Boeuf & Berger Mutual Insurance Company is hosting the Franklin County Honor Flight BBQ. The BBQ is being held at the New Haven Save-a-Lot parking lot on September 29th, beginning at 10:30 A.M.
The Honor Flight BBQ benefits and raises money for the Franklin County Honor Flight. This event benefits war veterans that have served our country. This flight travels to Washington D.C. and tours various war memorials and monuments for the day. The veterans visit the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Air Force Memorial.
JoAnn Kuschel, who is employed at Boeuf & Berger Mutual Insurance Company and is involved in helping with the Franklin County Honor Flight barbeque, stated, “This year alone, Honor Flight group is sending between 210-215 veterans. Our hope is to be able to give back as much as possible from the proceeds of this event. We will match the proceeds. Travel cost for each flight ranges from $18,000 to $20,000.”
The veterans leave for their Honor Flight trip on Saturday, September 23rd. In addition to this trip, the Franklin County Honor Flight also has more flights scheduled.
Terry Sullentrup, President of the Franklin County Honor Flight, stated, “We have an additional two trips scheduled for next month and they will be on Saturday, the 21st and 28th of October. The October 28th trip will be our 10th Anniversary Trip. We took our first trip on November 3rd, 2007, with seven WWII veterans and three founding members (Jim Tayon, Larry Davis, and Dave Hall-- all of Union, MO).”
There are many reasons why Honor Flight is held free of charge for the veterans who have served our country. JoAnn Kuschel said, “Freedom isn’t free, many have given their all and we want to make a dream come true for more veterans to see the memorials in Washington D.C.”
JoAnn Kuschel also said, “Going to Washington to see how they are honored helps to give closure to veterans’ trauma. After World War II, Vietnam, and the Korean War, our veterans weren’t treated well. They deserved better. Hopefully seeing the beautiful memorials to them will take away the painful memories.”
The barbeque will be held on September 29th at 10 A.M. at Save-A-Lot’s parking lot. All proceeds will go to paying for the airfare fees to fly to Washington D.C.

The last three volleyball seasons at New Haven High School have been very successful. Three years ago, the volleyball team went to state and they placed fourth in class one. The following year, the team placed second, and last year they placed third. We have placed every top four place you could get in the top four except for first place, and the expectation is to win first this year, twelve years after the last volleyball championship.
The season started off by playing against Borgia, ending in the first loss of the season. So far, we have won every game, not counting the Dig For Life tournament in Cape Girardeau. The players that play for varsity are: Emma Engelbrecht, Kate Ruediger, Lauren Gerlemann, MacKenzie Bauer, McKenzie Overschmidt, Mackenzie Munsinger, Grace Soete, Claire Meyer, and Lydia Pataky. The head coach is Jaime Hoener and the assistant coaches are Sharen Speckhals and Kelsey Anderson.
This week the varsity will play in the Hermann Tournament. The team placed 2nd in pool place last night.

In 2017, the New Haven girls track and field team won the second team state championship in school history. Coaches John Tucker, Mike Hagedorn, Josh Hoener, Aaron Peirick, and Jake Witthaus are the ones who pushed these girls every day to do their best and the ones who led them to this state championship.
However, the 2017 coaching staff is going to be one coach short this year. Coach Aaron Peirick is leaving the track and field team after four years and is now going to help his high school best friend and former teammate, Coach Jordan Willimann, coach the boys baseball team this spring. These two coaches together won the only baseball state championship in 2007.
When asked about how he felt leaving track and field and what impact this transfer would have on both teams, Coach Peirick said, “I enjoyed coaching track and working with the coaches and athletes every day. I learned a lot in those 4 years and had a lot of fun too. It’s not like I was looking for a reason to leave. As a school-wide coaching staff member, this is just what we needed right now.”
He continued: “The thing that I dislike the most about leaving track is that I feel like I formed some pretty strong relationships, both with the other track coaches and track athletes at the middle school and high school levels. I’m not super excited about leaving those relationships, but it’s also not like I won’t still see those people most days. I’m not going to lie though, having those first few weekends in May opened up is kind of cool.”
Coach Peirick also stated, “I think that track will keep on steam-rolling straight ahead like they have been for the last few years. The coaches and athletes on that team are too good to let something like this bother them. The biggest hole I leave for them is that they don’t have their walking sunscreen dispenser anymore. So they’re going to have to figure that out.”
“I hope my impact on joining the baseball team is positive,” explains Coach Peirick. “I think that what I’m lacking in baseball coaching experience I can make up for with energy and enthusiasm. I just plan on doing whatever Coach Willimann needs me to do and fill in the gaps. I really plan on learning a lot this first year. I don’t even know what I don’t know right now. I was lucky enough to play for Coach Scheer in high school, so I have a solid background in what baseball fundamentals look like and how the game should be played. I think that I remember enough Coach Scheer one-liners that I can at least sound like I know what I’m doing. Hopefully I can teach those guys a few things and be good enough help that Coach Willimann keeps me around for a while.”
Coach Aaron Peirick left impacts on the track and field athletes that he coached and will be missed by them and all of the coaches. Now, the new question arising is if anyone will be taking Coach Peirick’s position on this team.

Senior athletes, just like freshmen, had to start somewhere-- but how did they feel then versus now? Most will tell you how nervous and scared they were, but now they have more confidence in themselves.
Senior Emily Scheer, 3rd baseman for the New Haven softball team, said, “I have had the opportunity to play and learn a position I have never played before-- third base-- and I loved playing it. I’ve grown and learned a lot in the last 4 years.”
This seemed to be a common sentiment among the athletes I talked to. Natalie Hoerstkamp, a senior cross-country runner, let her words sum up her experience: “I was more worried than I was nervous. I worried about every little thing! Now… now I just focus on running. I know now that when I am on that course, I’m not going to die.”
Senior Emma Engelbrecht, middle blocker for the NH volleyball team, also expressed her thoughts and feelings with, “I’m not as nervous or scared now. Yes, I have more responsibility, but I don’t sweat the small stuff. I shake it off and do better the next time.”
Sarah McKernan, a senior and starting pitcher for the softball team said, “Sports have definitely changed me. Freshman year, I was for sure nervous to play. So much pressure was on me to be a freshman pitching on varsity. Now I love being a pitcher. I love the thrill and how I’m involved in every minute of the game. I don’t feel stressed or nervous, I feel relaxed when I’m on the mound and I block everybody else out. It’s just me playing the game I love.”
Senior volleyball player Kate Ruediger stated, “I was definitely more nervous as a freshman and sophomore than I am now. Now I know the game better and have some experience.”
Lauren Gerlemann, a senior on the volleyball team, said, “Freshman year was overwhelming trying to get into the swing of high school sports, but as the years went on, things weren’t that big of a deal anymore. You just become more relaxed and more comfortable as an athlete.”
Senior athletes, whether they play softball, volleyball, or cross country, all faced difficulties their freshman year. However, they stuck with it and have gained more confidence.

There is something new at New Haven High School. Something that gets cut in the lunch line, something poked and called “fresh meat” in the halls. This “thing” is a new freshman class.
When you are in a new school, anxiety is natural. You arrive with certain expectations, and when you actually get there, it is totally different. 50% of the freshman class said high school is what they expected. 33.3% of them said high school is not what they expected. 16.7% of them said maybe.
Freshman Hannah Rethemeyer said, “It is just the way people made it sound, like they said it is more fun than middle school, and it is.”
Another freshman, Madison Langenberg, said, “I expected the teachers to give out a lot more homework, and I expected that we would be rushed to get to class on time.”
For most freshmen, high school can either be terrifying or exciting. 25% of them said high school is terrifying and 75% of them said it is not. 91.7% of them said high school is exciting and 8.3% said it is not.
One freshman, Jacob Engelbrecht, said, “You have more freedom and it's a lot bigger.”
Freshman Payton Burkhardt said, “I like that high school has more activities to get closer with your grade.”
However, Caroline Otten said, “My least favorite thing about high school is having a short amount of time in lunch.”
The final question the freshman class was asked was, “If you could change one thing about high school, what would it be?” Most of the freshmen gave the predictable answers: not having a lot of homework, having study hall time for all classes, and so on and so forth. Likewise, Chloe Luekenhoff said, “One thing I would change is a bigger school, so it isn’t so crowded.”
As you can see from these responses, being a freshman is hard. At times, it seems you are nervous because you have never gone through high school, and in other moments, you are happy in high school. Being a freshman is the start of something new, so be prepared for a change.

Friday, August 21st, 2017, was the first total solar eclipse to pass over the United States in a while. There is some debate among professionals, but according to some sources, the last total solar eclipse seen from Missouri was in 1442. However, others claim one was seen in 1869.
Solar eclipses happen all the time all over the world, but it’s not every day one passes through your hometown. According to scientists, the next solar eclipse will be in 7 years. It will pass through Missouri, but not directly over New Haven. Scientists also know the moon is moving 1.6 inches away from the Earth every year, so eventually, over the course of thousands of years, the moon will be too far away from the Earth to create a total solar eclipse.
Totality in New Haven only lasted about 2 minutes, and in my own experience, it was the fastest 2 minutes of my life. The first contact was at about 12 P.M., totality was at 1:17, and the last contact was at about 2:40. Students at New Haven high got to go outside to view the event for about 50 minutes.
There was so much to focus on at once, I didn't know what to look at. My favorite part was the 360-degree sunset and the diamond ring effect. The sunset seemed like it came out of nowhere and some stars came out as well. I was interested in how bright the sky got when only the diamond ring was shining through, but it took almost no time for the bright sun to come back out and heat everything up again. It truly was an amazing experience to watch a solar eclipse in my hometown with my friends.
Other New Haven students seemed to agree and had their own unique experiences that day. For instance, sophomore McKenzie Pecaut and senior Liz Hughes said their favorite part was getting out of class for 50 minutes. Freshman Hannah Rethemeyer said her favorite part was when we got to take our glasses off during totality.

When it comes to high school, most people just think of having too much homework and taking classes you won’t ever need. Most people think that what happens in high school won't matter after graduation. High school is so much more than that: the recently graduated class of 2017 has learned that. Some of these past seniors want you to know what lessons learned at NHHS they found to be the most helpful through their journeys.
While discussing how NHHS works to prepare their students for the outside world, two out of three alumni said that the school did a good job with it. One student even called out a specific teacher as being the most helpful. LeeAnna Linton, a recent New Haven graduate, found that Ms. McCroskey helped her the most.
As LeeAnna said, “She taught us English the way that college professors do. She gave us homework that was college-level, and those things helped with getting prepared for college. She also gave us a lot of knowledge about college in general.”
LeeAnna added, “Ms. McCroskey was very personable, and I knew if I had college questions she had the answers. She was definitely helpful during my college transition.”
Patricia Weatherly, another member of the class of 2017, on the other hand didn’t find one specific teacher to be helpful-- instead, it was a specific class.
Patricia simply stated, “Finance classes have really helped me, especially Personal Finance and Accounting.”
Furthermore, another recent graduate, Rachel Connell, said, “I would say that personal finance helped me more than any other class, at least I was somewhat learning the basics of finances.”
These same students also wanted to shed some light so that you can get the most out of high school. For seniors, to sum up their advice, have fun!
LeeAnna advises, “Enjoy this year. It goes by way too fast. Be grateful for the amazing opportunity you have to be a Shamrock! It is truly an amazing experience that I miss dearly. Have fun, laugh, and get prepared for college. It isn’t the way it is in the movies.”
Patricia had some similar advice. She said, “When they tell you that senior year is going to go by quickly, they mean it. So make the most of it. Treasure the memories you make with your classmates and friends. Make sure that when you are on senior trip, you do as much as possible. It’s worth it.”
For juniors, these past seniors advise you to keep this year serious.
LeeAnna suggests, “Juniors should really take this this year seriously. Prepare for the ACT and work hard because colleges are starting to look into you. Start going on college tours and looking at what majors interest you, so that when you apply for college, you have an idea.”
For sophomores, they suggest that you start thinking about your plans for yourself.
LeeAnna advises, “Start getting an idea of what you want to do after high school and just continue getting good grades.”
For freshmen, these graduates tell you to get comfortable: you’ll be with the people around you for all of high school.
LeeAnna suggests, “Get involved in school and really focus on your grades. Get to know your teachers and start building connections with your classmates.”
As general advice for everyone, Rachel Connell says, “Be smart, save money, and apply for scholarships.”
This advice is coming from people who have been in the very same seats as you. They know what you are going through. Trust them when they say they can lend you some knowledge. Listen to them when they say you should get ready. The truth is, high school is over in the flash of an eye, and if you aren’t careful, you could miss out on some of the most important moments.
As Patricia Weatherly said, “I may not know much at this point in my life, but I am happy to have had NHHS to show me the way. I am proud to be part of the NHHS alumni and, one day, you will be too!”

Sports at New Haven High may have changed at its core: rules, regulations, standards, and other guidelines from Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) have changed over the years. When it comes down to the athletes, what has changed? From day one to today, how have the athletes adapted to keep up with it all?
Students attending New Haven have always been given one comment regardless of who it’s from: “New Haven has amazing sportsmanship.” As a smaller school, I believe that the majority of inspiration comes from our advisors, whether it’s on or off the court. When the crowd fills in the bleachers in our hot gymnasium, the first thing they notice is our floor, naturally. The second thing they notice is the unity among our teams. We stand for the Pledge of Allegiance together. We give each other encouragement as a team, a school.
Regardless of who is on the court or in the crowd, one thing New Haven always does is cheer on our Shamrocks. The students in the crowd come to boost the spirit, understanding that being there and supporting the playing team matters a lot more than your social status or the teams you personally partake in. Being there to support the Shamrocks to victory or defeat has much more value than the trophy itself.
In addition, students from every grade level have a chance to jump into something new-- whether you’re a freshman jumping right from middle school volleyball to high school, or a senior trying track for the first time. We all face the same difficulties, on and off the court. While New Haven cherishes our sports, we take great pride in our academics too. Without the athletes that make the lucky winning shot or serve the winning point, New Haven isn’t New Haven. Those athletes are the students that maintain and uphold “The Tradition of Excellence.”
How do these students keep New Haven a school of excellency? In New Haven, your participation in a sport does not determine how well you do in the classroom. Your effort creates a grade that reflects your hard work. When asked in a survey, 64% of 30 students said that they have not had any difficulty getting homework done although they are involved in sports and clubs. Another 53% of the same group of students claimed that they have little to no difficulty meeting deadlines or do not struggle to get their homework done.
Upon prompting students to enter an approximate time that they typically complete their homework and finally get to bed, results were across the board. Some say no later than 8:30 P.M., and others are as late as 2 A.M.!
While some students don’t have much difficulty getting their homework done or meeting deadlines, most lose a lot of sleep. Nevertheless, our cherished athletes have friendly words for incoming freshmen or current students of New Haven that are considering joining a club or sport.
Morgan Branson, sophomore, stated, “Get your homework done the day you get it, in case you have a late game before the day it’s due.”
“Do a lot and chase every opportunity you get to do something because it goes by fast,” Russell Pinnell, a current junior, expressed when prompted with the same question.
Wise words! My personal advice to any incoming freshman or middle school student would be to get involved. Don’t wait, just get on the ball and join!
Although high school may be extremely difficult for some, there are others who don’t want it to end. I asked the questions, “If you could change one thing about the amount of groups you were or are involved in, what would it be? Also, what would you like to remember when you graduate and are no longer a member of those groups?”
In response to these questions, a number of students said that they want to remember the feeling of crossing the finish line, or winning the game as a team. Another great number of students said that they want to remember and cherish the memories and the fun they had in high school.
Alexis Sidwell, sophomore, responded, “Being a part of a club or sport is an amazing experience, and I think that everyone should at least try it once because high school is only four years, so we should make the most of it.”
Even though high school will eventually come to an end, this is the place that they’ll always carry with them. Once a Shamrock, always a Shamrock.
