Softball Season of 2018


The Mason County Central softball team arrived at Cadillac’s home field last Friday, April 27th. With a double-header scheduled, the Lady Spartans walked in ready to play. The set-up looked like this- Morgan Ahlfeld on the mound and Lexi Bendele behind the plate. Savannah Bice, Lindsay Billow, Andee Carter, and Braylen Green in the infield. Amber Erickson, Hannah Knizacky, and Adeline Vanoller starting in the grass. Prior to the game, the girls only had two games under their belt, both losses against Montague and Oakridge. The girls walked in knowing what they needed to focus on. Some of the main points they planned to execute against Cadillac were accurate throws, good communication, hitting the ball well, and avoiding compound errors.

Checking out TV 9 & 10 News Station

groupOn Wednesday, May 31, 2017, the Writing for Publication Class took a field trip to the broadcast facility for TV 9 & 10.  Travel north on US 131 and near Exit 177 you will notice an impressive building on the west side of the expressway.  Class member Cynthia Wurtz had this to say about the building, “The outside design off gave a wonderful first impression. It was located right on the highway and was clearly visible from the road. Our tour guide was sure to mention that the location was so great because it gave reporters easy access in order to cover accidents, or get in and out quickly.” Upon entering the broadcast center, Heather Stewart warmly greeted the eager students and their teacher Mrs. Miller.  “I’ve always wanted to see the inside of TV 9 & 10’s production facility, but even more so since they moved into this great location,” said Mrs. Miller.   Continue reading “Checking out TV 9 & 10 News Station”

Senior Awards

Mock Elections

MCC’s class of 2017 had a good run, and as their senior year comes to a close students get to look back at all of the times they spent together. Even though most made an impact, some students stood out above the rest. This year’s mock elections were awarded to 37 deserving seniors.

First off, best sense of humor went to CJ Pyke and Makayla Franklin, while Austin Tyndall and Courtney Palmer were voted most outgoing. As most can tell just by passing them through the hall, best dressed went to Connor Willick and Emily Scharich. And the prettiest eyes in the school are Gunner Schultz and Penny Petersen. Most likely to brighten your day was Quentin Malzahn, Theresa Molitor, and Irene Brinquis Quero. Continue reading “Senior Awards”

Track and Field

The track season as a whole may not have been as good they wanted, but there were many of the members who made it to state which made it a successful season. Mason County Central has six individual event entries and a relay team going to state. Dylan Hearns got fourth at regionals giving him the opportunity to run the 800 meter dash at state. Ryan Mount will be in multiple individual events for getting second in the 200 meter dash and first in the high jump. Matt Quinn got first in discus at regionals and second in shot put letting him participate in state for those events. The last individual making it into state finals is Jael Wood. She was in for pole vault in which she placed second at regionals. The last event that qualified was the boys 4×400 meter relay ran by Dylan Hearns, Ryan Mount, Jacob Shoop, and Travis Tyndall. Hopefully next year MCC will see some more people making it to Track and Field State Finals. Even those team members who didn’t qualify found the season to be rewarding. As runner Genna Dyga said, “It was a great way to meet and make friends.” Continue reading “Track and Field”

Softball? Hardcore.

Softball season, a time of gloves, bats, and flying fastballs. With school coming to a swift close, Junior Varsity Team Captain Katelyn Carr reminisces on the recently finished season. After being asked how their season had progressed, and what some of the trials behind it were, she answered, “Our team started off with a lot of new girls so we definitely needed to improve throughout the season, but we did it together as one big team and family. We improved a lot toward the end of the season with a huge win against Shelby, and finally beat our biggest rival, Ludington.” The two wins against Shelby and Ludington boosted the team’s confidence exponentially, as they had lost every game the previous year.

As the school year comes to a close, so does the MCC Boys’ Baseball season, and boy, has it been a challenge. With a varsity win to loss ratio of 8-21 and a JV win to loss ratio of 6-15, MCC baseball fields have certainly been diamonds in the rough. But, as always, there is still hope for next year. Varsity Coach Don Thomas had a few words to share.
