As Newark Norsemen start the 2011-2012 soccer season, they are looking forward to a successful year. Even though they have lost eight games and won only one game, they beat Serena on September 7th with the score of 3-2. At the end of the game, Wyatt Williamson helped us with the game during the shoot-out with his outstanding goal keeping skills.

I took some time to interview some of the players on the team. According to Kenny Kratzer the rest of the season will be “interesting.” He also stated that this season has been a learning experience. He feels that to improve himself, he needs to “work on his ball handling skills.” His favorite thing about soccer is playing a scrimmage in practice. I also interviewed Bailey Andersen, who said he has been playing soccer for six years. Bailey’s favorite thing is to run during games.

During my interview with Coach Grubb, I learned he has been coaching soccer for two years now. Coach explained that this year has been good. “We have a lot of potential on improving our games; unfortunately we have only won one game so far. He expresses that the team is doing something different this year. “They are focusing more on technical skills such as passing, ball handling, positioning, and communication.” The last question I asked him which was his favorite team to play against? He pointed out that Serena has been Newark’s equal. He also said another good challenge was Paw Paw.

The golf team played their first match on August 25th where they encountered Aurora Christian’s Crusaders. The golf team has been reinstated this year at Newark, and 15 people have joined the team. The team consists of four seniors: Max Bisallion, Colton Brummel, Casey Jeka and Taylor Wright. Juniors did not choose this team, but six sophmores did: Kara Brummel, Dakota Boon, Nick Gerken, Nick Minarich, Conner Rennick and Jayson Shirley. Five freshmen complete the golf team; they include Noah Boon, Austin Dike, Cole Krug, Karter Kunkel and Zach Ward. Senior Maxwell Bisallion considers himself an average golfer, and his favorite thing about the sport is the serenity of it. When Maxwell was asked, “What was the main reason you joined this team?” he responded, “I joined because golf is an amazing sport. It is both relaxing and thrilling at the same time!” Even though they haven’t won a match yet, the team still has spirit, and its members are working hard to change that and having fun doing it with Coach Hissong encouraging them.

Lady Norsemen Volleyball

Fall not only brings a new school year, but a new volleyball season. This year started very similarly to other recent years with high aspirations of going deep into the playoffs. Even though in the last two years the team hasn’t gotten as far as they had expected, we are hoping for a different outcome this season.

The players and coaches aren’t the only ones excited for this season, so are the community and the student body. The students can show their school spirit, NCHS has a “kill club;” it’s a very fun way to show off school spirit, be able to watch the volleyball game at the same time and encourage the players of the Newark Lady Norsemen!
