The smell of hot dogs and fresh cut grass was in the air when the Nouvel Baseball Program took Dow Diamond on Sunday, May 7th, when they received a grant from the Loons. This grant will be used for renovations to the field which include, new dug-outs (benches, flooring, and cubbies), and painting both dug-outs, the press-box, and the foul poles. The Nouvel Baseball Family really appreciates everything that Mike Kolleth and the Great Lakes Loons have done to help us finish our field. To sum the afternoon up, Mr. Boyd said , “We can not thank Mr. Kolleth and the Great Lakes Loons enough for what they have done to help us improve our wonderful field. We give them our out most thanks and we hope that we can go out to Dow Diamond again.”

NYC Band Trip

Masey Seals ’17

Over spring break the band took a trip to New York City, they left on April 19th and came back April 23rd. The reason they went was for the cultural and musical experience, that Saginaw just cannot provide. The trip included many stops in New York City,  such as seeing the Broadway show, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. They also went and seen the 9/11 memorial and museum, the St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Grand Central Station, and many more! Senior Noah Robertson said, “It was a fun trip, it was definitely worth it, my favorite part was the Broadway show Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I encourage future band members to take the trip”.

Boys Baseball

Christian Haraga ’17

The baseball team is off to a great start on the year. It helps when the weather is holding up early. With the good weather it allows the team to get out on the field and get some live practice time. On May 3rd the team played All Saints Central High School. They played a double header and it ended as a split with both teams winning once. This brings their record to 7-5 on the year and puts them in a good position for the rest of the season to really show how dangerous of a team they can be. The run is definitely a confidence booster for the squad to carry them to the end of the season and hopefully carry on into playoffs.

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past” (The Great Gatsby) as we leave behind one dazzling night. As the girls wake up at a reasonable time to begin what seems to be an elaborate process, and the boys wait 30 minutes to start getting ready before they leave, the day begins.

For most, the night started off with groups of friends, taking pictures to capture the memories. After a late change in venue, shortly following pictures, all students graciously attended mass at St. John Vianny. Right from mass, the well-dressed men and women headed over to Swan Valley Banquet Center for dinner and the dance. When asked how the venue was, senior Emily Felton said, “The venue decorations were extravagant, I really liked the look of the centerpieces….every detail fit the theme really well.” Not only was there dinner and a dance, but also a photo booth where the students used fun props to create endless memories. Students also had the option to get a professional picture done by Hicks Studio.

At around 11:30 pm, everyone started heading out and were given 45 minutes to change and grab a quick bit before they would have to be at Kokomos. The night/morning consisted of corn hole, laser tag, put-put-golf, a rollercoaster, go-carts, arcade games, raffles, and even pizza. Ian Flores says the night as a whole was, “Bittersweet. It was fun. I had a good tie with my friends and over all a great night.” With bobby pins on the dance floor, sweaty shirts, tired eyes, and cold hands, the night ended. To the Juniors, thank you for putting on an unforgettable night.
