Mr. Hagedorn discusses his retirement
By: Alex Trentmann
Michael Hagedorn, known to all students of NHHS as Mr. Hagedorn, will be retiring this year after working 25 years at New Haven High. Mr. Hagedorn teaches subjects such as genetics, anatomy, biology, earth science, environmental science, and physical science. He is also a track and field coach for middle school and high school, as well as the coach for the middle school cross country team.
The first question asked was how he felt about retiring from New Haven High and he replied, “I’ve reached a time in my life where I need to start focusing on my family, rather than work and coaching. My mother needs help at home due to her Alzheimer’s and I have a daughter who will be turning two after the end of the school year. I feel like I have made my mark here at New Haven High and that some new blood needs to take over. Somebody with new ideas and [who] includes more technology in their teaching. I feel like students need more technology in teaching, since it is becoming such a necessary part of life. I am nervous because this is a big change for me, but I have several other opportunities that will keep me busy. My wife will definitely be glad that I am able to stay home more and help take care of our daughter.”
Next, he discussed what he planned to do after retiring and he said, “I plan on expanding my landscaping business. I also plan to get more involved with the Elks in Washington. I’ve worked there for 10 years now, and I’m glad to be a part of it. They offer many opportunities to high school students, as well as special needs children. I do a lot there now, and I plan on doing more volunteering in the future. I possibly could end up being a substitute or continue coaching in the future. Lastly, I plan to start buying foreclosed homes, fix them up and get them back on the market.”
Then, Mr. Hagedorn went on to explain what he’ll miss about New Haven High, “I’ll miss the students, administration, and teachers that I have worked with over my years. I’ll miss seeing students succeed academically and athletically, overcoming their problems with hard work.”
Thank you, Mr. Hagedorn, for teaching the students of NHHS the many topics of science. New Haven High wishes you the best in your future endeavours!
Seniors get pumped for New York
By: Bernabe Ribera
With senior trip coming up in just a few months and many eager students waiting for the 40+ hour bus drive, a Google form was sent out to ask about what they are planning.
The seniors were asked what they are most excited for on their trip, and Desiree Strehlau, senior, responded with, “Traveling and seeing the beautiful and historic sights. I'm also excited to see New York.”
“Getting out of New Haven and seeing a load of different cities, and states,” replied Alex Trentmann.
Diana Ribera responded with, “I'm excited to see new cities and make memories with my friends.”
“I am very excited to just be hanging out with my friends. I think we are all going to enjoy the trip and have a lot of fun and make a lot of memories at the places that we visit,” stated Lexi Oetterer.
On the trip, the students will have a chance to see a show on Broadway in New York. Some were asked what they will be seeing.
Desiree Strehlau replied with, “I am going to see Pretty Woman because it was the cheapest. I did enjoy the movie though, and I'd love to see how they're recreating it on Broadway.”
“Wicked. I chose this because this is probably the only chance I'll have to see a show, so why not?” said Alex Trentmann.
“I'm going to go see Wicked. I chose that because, even though it's expensive, it's a play that people have said is fun and entertaining,” replied Diana Ribera.
Julia Unnerstall responded with, “Pretty Woman, because I love the movie and it was the cheapest option.”
“I am going to Wicked, and I chose it because my sister saw it on her senior trip, and she said it was very good,” responded Lexi Oetterer.
Lastly, the seniors talked about what they are planning on buying while on their trip.
Alex Trentmann replied with, “Probably an Empire State Building or Statue of Liberty keychain. (Or maybe a pair of Jordans).”
Diana Ribera stated, “I for sure want to buy a New York hoodie. I may buy some souvenirs for my family.”
“I'm not sure yet, but I do know that I'll be buying more than [one] souvenir,” said Julia Unnerstall.
“I have no idea, but probably a lot of things. I have a bit of a spending problem,” replied Lexi Oetterer.
It looks like the seniors are very excited for their trip to New York. With so many days to prepare and lots of planning to do, our seniors will surely have lots of fun.

Saturday, February 16, the girls basketball season came to an end when they fell to Elsberry during their District Tournament. They ended with a score of 47-34.
Varsity coach Mr. Doug Peirick gave his thoughts on how the season went overall. “I thought the girls played hard and had great attitudes all year long. That's not a real easy thing to do when [you’re] not having a lot of success on the floor. They came to practice every night to get better and work on things that they needed to with enthusiasm. Our seniors did a great job keeping the team on track. Do I wish the season would have gone better? Yes, but the girls never gave up and played hard until that final whistle every night.”
All of the girls on both teams (JV and Varsity) were asked a series of questions to get a feel for their thoughts about the season. Some of them even gave goals they accomplished and memories they have from the season.
Sophomore Caroline Otten, JV, said, “I think we had a really good season overall. It was upsetting with the few losses we had, but in the end it improved us and made us better at the end of the season.”
The Varsity girls also thought they played well. Sophomore Ellie Westermeyer, Varsity, commented with, “I am very glad we all got along, and although the season did not go as planned, we all did great.”
JV player Emma Rohlfing, freshman, talked about some of her goals she accomplished this season, “Yes, I accomplished many goals. [They consisted of] getting rebounds, getting my elbows out and popping people in the mouth, and getting stronger down low.”
Varsity player McKenzie Overschmidt, junior, replied with, “All getting along and staying positive throughout the whole season.”
Finally, the girls were asked if they had any funny moments during games or memories they made. Peyton Sumpter recalled a memory and a funny moment. She said, “One of my favorite memories was when we were in the locker room and Coach Peirick walked over to the bench and grabbed a handful of Cheez-Its and said, ‘I love Cheez-Its.’”
She continued: “The [funniest] moment was probably on the bus on our way back from the Hermann Tournament when we got first, and two other girls and I snuck up behind Coach Scheer on the bus and started singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ as loud as we could.”
Hannah Rethemeyer, sophomore Varsity player, commented with, “The funniest moment this year during a game was when we were playing St. Clair-- I think in the Hermann Tournament. Meagan [Holtmeyer] was going after the ball and she fell on top of a girl, and as she was getting up, she fell again and just sat on top of the girl. (It was a lot funnier if you saw it).”
Sounds like the girls enjoyed this year. Congratulations on the end of the season! See you next year on the court.

Mischki Soete has been the head coach of cheerleading for the past three years. The first year Mrs. Soete coached with Diane Munsinger. Mischki told the cheerleaders this season she was retiring as coach and would not be there next year.
Mischki Soete stated, “I decided to try coaching because Diane Munsinger needed help after LuAnn left. I have always loved cheerleading and I enjoy working with high schoolers. Plus it would give me a chance to share in cheerleading with Grace.”
Mrs. Soete mentioned, “I will miss several things. I will miss the laughter when one of the cheerleaders messes up in a cheer, how they all dance around when a song comes on, or sing in practice to Russ's music. I will miss watching all of them laugh and joke around. The cheerleaders all may not have been friends outside of cheer, but somehow they bonded, laughed, and had each others’ backs when it was cheer season. I love that.”
Senior Miranda Durbin shared, “Mrs. Soete has always loved each of us in our own way. I’ll never forget laughing as a team with her, spending those valuable moments with her that we will never be able to relive or share with the future athletes.”
“Some of my favorite moments from coaching have to be cheering at the games. We would add a new cheer and the crowd would respond with cheers and screams, but the building floor cheers stood out the most. I remember the first time Grace and Diana went up. I knew we were all nervous, but everyone nailed their parts. I was so excited and proud of all of the cheerleaders.”
Mrs. Soete continued: “The two building cheers that stand out the most are the Superman and the stomping cheer, even over the pendulum. The gasp from the fans the first time we did the Superman was great! I was so proud of all the hard work and determination the squad showed. Then, Diana found the stomp floor routine and we all worked to make it fit for us Shamrocks. When we finally did the stomp, the student section went wild and the crowd cheered too.”
Senior Diana Ribera shared, “I'm sad that she's retiring. She was a fun coach to have. I'll miss that she encouraged me on builds even though I'd be nervous or scared to do it.”
Mrs. Soete finished, “What I have loved the most about these past four years was being a witness to all of this and having a small part in guiding and encouraging the squad. I admired watching and seeing that sense of ‘Shamrock Pride’ grow, as it should have, because the cheerleaders worked together to make our cheer season the best it could be. I will miss being around everyone. It could be crazy and stressful, but it was fun. I think being around all of them has kept me on my toes and kept me young at heart. Making the decision to leave after this season was a hard one. I just felt it was time. I want to be more available for my family and I want to help more at the NHES.”
“My entire cheerleading career has been something I will always remember, and I got to experience it all with my mom,” said senior Grace Soete.
As you can see, Mischki Soete greatly affected the cheer squad in all her years of coaching. Mischki has shared many unforgettable moments with the team and she encouraged the squad to step out of their comfort zones and try something new. Mrs. Soete was a very supportive coach and will be missed tremendously by her cheer family.
FBLA members compete at districts
By: Lexi Oetterer
On Friday, February 15th, Mrs. Kelsey Anderson, FBLA sponsor, took a group of FBLA members to the FBLA district competition.
The members who competed put in a lot of work before the competition. Each group had different projects that they had to complete; some were pre-judged before the presentation and others were first seen at their presentation. Mrs. Anderson also made every team practice with her at least twice to prepare themselves for the competition, and so she could give them some advice to better their projects.
“I feel like most of the participants did a great job in preparing for districts,” said Mrs. Kelsey Anderson. “I had some students working on their projects back in November already. Most of the teams practiced multiple times and worked on their own time as well to get ready. I was very impressed with the overall improvement in the teams from the first time they came in and practiced to each team’s final performance. They all took the feedback I gave them and applied changes in order to improve their presentations, and I think their time and effort definitely paid off.”
FBLA members were asked about how they prepared for their projects.
Freshman Miranda Yarbrough, 1st place in the Social Media Campaign presentation, replied, “We had to research a lot of social media platforms, create pages for those platforms, and even did a student survey to collect data for our presentation.”
Junior Lydia Otten, who took the Word Processing test, answered, “I just studied and did a lot of practice runs on Microsoft Word.”
“I got together with my group members every day to practice and [perfect] skills that [were] needed for our presentation,” said Natalie Pecaut, 2nd place in the Public Service Announcement.
The members were also asked about how they felt during their presentations.
Senior Miranda Durbin, 1st place in Website Design, commented, “A lot calmer than I expected. I was nervous beforehand, but the second I said, ‘Good morning!’ I lost all of those nerves and it was so much easier than I expected.”
Senior Olivia Williams, 1st in Sales Presentation and Publication Design, said, “I was really nervous for both of my presentations, but once I started, I was more calm. I felt like I spoke loud and clear. I also felt like I really sold my product for my Sales Presentation event. My group also did a great job in the Publication Design event. We were very professional and gave good answers to the questions they asked us.”
Our FBLA chapter was able to bring home a record of eleven 1st place medals this year, with seven of them being in performance events and four being objective tests. The other medals that FBLA got for objective tests were four 2nd place, four 3rd place, one 4th place, and four 5th place medals. The other medals that FBLA got in objective tests were two 2nd place, three 3rd place, and one 4th place medal. The members that got 1st in a performance event or 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in an objective test have qualified for the state competition.
The members were asked about how they felt about the results they got on their projects.
Junior Grace Allgaier, 3rd place in the Journalism objective test, answered, “I was very excited when Julia sent me a text saying I had made it to state. I wasn't really expecting that I would make it to state, so I was just super excited.”
“I am so excited that I made it to state,” said Olivia Williams. “It feels so good knowing that all your hard work paid off. Sadly, any seniors that qualified for state will be on Senior Trip, so we may not get to go. But it is still a huge accomplishment on qualifying!”
“I am very excited and nervous to go to state,” said Miranda Yarbrough. “I feel like it’s a big deal to go to state as a freshman and am very honored to go.”
Mrs. Anderson was asked how she felt about the district competition, and she replied, “I am extremely proud of what we brought to FBLA districts this year as a group. I feel like the students did an incredible job and should be extremely proud of themselves. Their hard work definitely paid off!”
Congratulations to everyone who placed at the district level of the FBLA competition, and good luck to those who have qualified for the state competition!

FCCLA members discuss Babysitting Night
By: Destiny Lafferty
On February 9, 2019, FCCLA members hosted a Babysitting Night for kids as a special treat for New Haven parents looking for a break or a night out. The event lasted from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. and took place in the high school and middle school.
Julia Unnerstall is a senior member of FCCLA. She thought, “It was so much fun! I wish I had done it in [past years]! I felt even like a kid, playing in the gym, coloring, and sipping my Capri Sun!“
Julia played with the kids, colored, and helped in the kitchen cutting up apples. Julia commented, “The kids were very well-behaved.
Johnna Bloch is a junior member of FCCLA, and she mentioned, “It was very fun! We colored, ran around the gym, made mini pizzas, and were loud.” According to Johnna, the kids were very excited and hyper.
Natalie Buchheit is a sophomore member of FCCLA, and she expressed, “I think it is a good event, because it lets the parents go out and have time alone.” Natalie helped the kids when they needed it and played with them. Natalie commented that the kids were wild.
Lexy Sidwell, junior club member, mentioned that the kids were energetic and fun to be around. She felt that she had fun and thought that the kids did too.
Lexy said, “I had the second shift, and the first thing we did was play Duck Duck Goose. Then we went into Mrs. Miller's room and decorated cookies, which didn't turn out as messy as I thought. Then we played in the classroom, and I colored with a couple kids. The last thing we did was hang out in the gym. I shot basketballs with some kids, and then I played soccer with some others.”
Thanks again to FCCLA for hosting this event. The kids got to have fun with a bunch of other kids while their parents got to relax and get a few things done. It sounds like this was a lot of fun!

Senior Night is a tradition celebrated by many schools in the district. It is a night when all of the senior athletes are recognized for the sports they have done over the four years of high school.
The class of 2019 senior athletes were recognized Tuesday, February 12, in between the boys JV and Varsity games. The athletes walked down the gym while Rachael Horstmann announced the names of the athletes and their parents. She also announced the sports the athletes were in and what sports they had managed.
The athletic boosters provided an Italian dinner at 5:30 for the seniors and their parents before the JV game.
That night produced wins for both boys teams. John Liggett, sophomore, won the JV game with a buzzer-beater 3-point shot in double overtime. They won 43-42. Trent Kormeier, senior, won the varsity game with a buzzer-beater 2-point shot. They won 44-42.
The athletes were asked what their favorite part about Senior Night was.
Mikayla Maloney, cheerleader, replied saying, “My favorite part was eating dinner, then walking down with my mom and dad.”
Alexander Trentmann, cross country and track runner, said, “[My favorite was] walking down the middle of the court with my grandma.”
The seniors were also asked what they were going to miss the most about the sports they participated in.
Mikayla Maloney stated, “I am going to miss the builds we did and the friendships I made all four years of being a cheerleader.”
Julia Unnerstall said, “I will miss playing the sport I love with my girls.”
Another question they were asked was how they felt knowing that graduation was quickly approaching.
Julia stated, “It's scary but exhilarating at the same time. I'm ready to start my future but not ready to leave my past.”
The last question they were asked was if they had any advice for the underclassmen.
Mikayla said, “get involved.”
Alex advised to “enjoy it while it lasts.”
Julia said, “Get hyped! When it comes time for you to play, give it your all! Most of all, have fun, because before you know it, it'll be over.”
Overall, Senior Night proved to be a success for both teams, and the senior athletes had a lot to say to the future senior Shamrocks.

New Haven High School’s FCCLA members are holding a Humane Society drive from February 19th through February 22nd.
According to the Humane Society website, the Humane Society “is the nation’s most effective animal protection organization.” Since they began, “12,000 adoptable dogs have found homes through the 21 pet stores that the Humane Society convinced to stop working with puppy mills.”
The website continued to say that “the Humane Society has an Animal Rescue Team as well that works with law enforcement to investigate the worst cases of animal abuse nationwide. Every year, they rescue thousands of animals from fighting operations, natural disasters, and other large-scale situations of cruelty and neglect.”
Fellow New Haven High students are encouraged to get involved and help out with the drive by bringing in new or used towels or blankets, rawhides, leashes, collars, bowls, or blue Dawn dish soap. Students should put the items in the box by Mrs. Miller’s door.
The goal of the drive as stated by Mrs. Miller, FCCLA’s sponsor, is, “We aim to collect items that are not being used and give the items to the Humane Society where the items will be put to good use.”
Members of the Humane Society Drive committee were asked why FCCLA is choosing to do this as a community service, how they believe this drive reflects the school, and if they had any stories about how an animal has impacted their lives or why the drive is important to them.
Senior Kamryn Poe stated, “FCCLA is doing this project to show the community that we do care about more than just our school. We care about our community and the people and animals who are in it. By starting this drive, we are raising awareness about the Humane Society and we are helping animals get better living conditions. A single towel can help raise awareness that these animals need more help. This also might encourage more people to look into adopting a dog.”
She continued: “It is important to me because all of my dogs were rescued and I got a few of them from the Humane Society. So helping an organization that helped me get my furry friends is always going to be important to me. Without the Humane Society, I would have never become such an adamant animal lover. I am so happy FCCLA is doing this drive for things like collars, blankets, towels, etc. because it is helping some pretty amazing animals.”
Many other committee members stated they just want to help out because they love animals and the Humane Society has cute dogs.
Thank you to all of those who are actively involved in FCCLA and for all you do to help out the community. Good luck with your drive!

Pep Band wraps up their season
By: Diana Ribera
With the basketball season coming to an end, the pep band has also come to an end. On February 14, pep band played for their last conference basketball game. Students were sent a survey about how they felt about the season coming to an end.
When questioned how they felt pep band went overall, senior trombonist Mikayla Maloney said, “I love pep band-- it is my favorite part of band. I am sad this is my last time doing it. I think we did very well this year.”
Sophomore floutist Sheny Delgado stated, “I felt like we had a good season overall, but we were at our best during the last week of band.”
When asked about their favorite song played, Sheny Delgado said, “‘All the Light,’ because one [person]-- John Hughes. He plays a really low note in the song at the beginning, and it’s an awesome sound.” Freshman trumpet player Ryanne McDaris stated, “My favorite song was ‘We Got the Beat’ because of the easy notes and great sound.”
Mikayla Maloney exclaimed, “‘Jenny’ or ‘867-5309’ because Claire Meyer and I play this one part in the song and it sounds killer. You have to love the brass section.”
The players were asked what their favorite moment was, Ryanne said she loved when they played as the players ran out. Sheny Delgado said having the pep band battle in the band room on Tuesday before Thursday's games.
Great job, pep band players, on a great season! Hope the rest of the band season goes well for all of you!

Winter is ending soon, spring is fast approaching. With the end of winter almost here, so are the sports, and soon baseball and track and field will start practicing for their new upcoming seasons.
To start off, the students were asked why they wanted to join track (whether or not this is their first year) and junior Lauren Hoerstkamp answered, “I decided to do track because you are only in high school once and might as well make the most of it and get involved. Track is also a very competitive but also a laid-back sport, and you get many opportunities.”
“I've done it the last three years and have been pretty successful so I have to finish strong,” said senior Martin Lewis.
Alaina Scott, sophomore, responded with, “I love track because it is an independent sport that I can focus on myself and get better.”
Next, the athletes were questioned about what they wanted to achieve this season, and junior Lauralie Grater said, “I am hoping to improve on my time and make it better than the previous years. I want to make one of the relay teams and just do better in general.”
“I want to get stronger and become a better runner,” replied freshman Ashlyn Beckmann.
Grace Allgaier, junior, responded with, “I hope to make it farther by myself, rather than being an alternate.”
Lastly, the junior and senior athletes discussed advice they wanted to give to the underclassmen and Lauren Hoerstkamp, junior, said, “You can always try everything once! I am 5' 1" and I tried high jump. You can always switch and there will always be more opportunities-- and the weather is great! You get a great tan!”
“Come ready to work hard,” responded senior Martin Lewis.
Junior Grace Allgaier answered, “Try to get out of your head because sometimes your thoughts can hold you back.”
Good luck to the track and field Shamrocks on their upcoming season. Earn New Haven High another state title, athletes!
