Slow Start For Lady Norsemen

Date: 3/25/09

It’s been a rough week for the Newark softball team. The first team to defeat the Lady Norsemen was a 3A school, Sycamore. During the double-header on Saturday, March 21, Newark walked away with two losses, ending up 2-12 and 0-16. The next game was scheduled for March 24 against Aurora Central Catholic. That game closed in a tie, 6-6. The Ladies were ready to take the next step towards a win. They were hoping to come out and defeat Rosary on March 30. The girls weren’t so lucky and took another loss resulting in a score of 2-11. The Lady Norsemen are trying hard and striving for that first victory.

A Historic '09 Season for the Norsemen
The 2009 Newark Norsemen Basketball Team achieved new heights by becoming the first Boys' Basketball Team in School History to earn a Sectional Championship Title.

Newark's 25-6 season came to a close on Tuesday, March 10th against Annawan High School (52-61) during the Supersectional finals.

The 2009 Newark Norsemen had many accomplishments including advancement into Class 1A Elite Eight, Regional Championship Title (First Regional Title since 2000-01 season), Serena Thanksgiving Tournament Championship Title, Second Place at the Little Ten Conference Championship, and Consolation Championship Title at the Plano Christmas Classic.

Season highlights include Nick Slack and Kurt Anderson's selection to the Serena All-Tournament Team, and Kyle Anderson receiving AP all-state honorable mention. The team will greatly miss our seniors Kurt Anderson, Matt Eisnaugle, Josh Michaelson, Nick Slack, Levy Soare, and Drew Tollefson during the 09-10 Basketball Season.

Although this season has come to a close, the Newark Norsemen basketball team will be a team to watch in years to come. Looking to the future, Newark has young talent that can strive to achieve this new standard now set by the 2009 Norsemen. Congratulations Norsemen on a outstanding season and good luck in your future!
