Congratulations on a Great Season!

By Kirstie Anderson

Congratulations to the Newark Lady Norsemen on a Successful 2010 Season! Newark’s softball team’s season came to a close on Wednesday, May 19, in the Serena Class 1A Regional semifinal match. Second seed Gardner-South Wilmington defeated the third seed Norsemen with a score of 6-4.

The Lady Norsemen achieved the 20-win milestone to give them a final record of 20-14 (11-3 in Little 10 Conference). This proved to be quite an accomplishment for a team comprised of a mere four upper classmen.

The team will miss the lone senior, Tara Bernard. She has played third base for the past three years, and was a strong offensive threat for the Norsemen.

Way to go Lady Norsemen on an outstanding season! Good luck in the future!

Norsemen Conclude a Successful Season

By Russell McGrath

Congratulations to the Newark baseball team on a successful season. The Norsemen finished the year with 15 wins and 14 losses. The Norsemen’s season concluded on Tuesday May 18, against Dwight. It was a tough loss for the team as they fell 3 to 2. The team had some individual accomplishments this year with Joey Jeffers hitting his first ever home run. Also Alan Hardisty drove in his 100th RBI. Seniors Aaron Bromeland, Alan Hardisty, Russell McGrath, Cody Walker, and Joey Jeffers will be greatly missed in the 2010-2011 season. Great Job Norsemen and best of luck next year!

Lady Norsemen Softball

By Tara Bernard and Kirstie Anderson

The Newark Lady Norseman softball team has improved tremendously these past few months. Hitting and fielding continues to become stronger with each game. The girls have an overall record of 15-13 with a conference record of 9-3 in the Little Ten. Although the team has experienced several losses, the girls have gained experience that will surely help them when the post season comes around.

Highlights in the past few weeks include a double header against Dwight at home with a cookout in between games. The teams enjoyed the social time as well as the food provided by the parents. Also, Newark defeated Paw Paw on the road in strong winds with a score of 22-7. Tara Bernard contributed a home run and five RBIs. Taylor Rehberg also had five RBIs, and Kirstie Anderson had five hits. When the Lady Norsemen went to Kirkland Hiawatha, they left with a conference win of 13-5. Taylor Krug earned the pitching win during this match.

Monday, May 17 marks the date of the first round of IHSA Class 1A Regionals. The first game the Lady Norseman will play is to be held on the home field against Elgin Westminster Christian. We wish them the best of luck in the post season!
