The Bertrand Vikings 2018 fall sports are underway and this year’s Wolfkings cross country team is bringing back seniors Atlee High, Olivia O’clair, Austin Long, and manager Kassidy Drain. Juniors Marley Gonzalez, Cailey Grabenstein, Natalie Johnson, Isaiah Schwarz, and sophomores Trista Callahan and Landon Andersen, round out the returning runners from last year’s team after losing 4 seniors last season. With the addition of junior Grace Straight, and senior boys Brian Hemmele and Joesiah Zeiger, the team looks to have another successful season. They have a good group of strong runners and are looking forward to seeing how they place.
This year the Wolfkings will have 6 meets before the conference meet on October 4th. The RPAC Conference meet will be held in Alma. The first meet of the season will take place in Gibbon on Thursday August 30th. The district meet location will be announced at a later date.
With the 2018 Viking Volleyball season in full swing, the Vikings look to have another successful season. This year the Vikings will be rebuilding their team after losing 5 senior starters to graduation. The 15 player roster will give them the options they need to get it done. This young team looks to be energetic and swift and hopes to progress through the season.
Several players switched positions this season. Seniors Grace Schwarz and Lindsay Schutz moved to outside hitters from middle and are looking strong in their new position. Erin Boggs has stepped up in the setting role, changing from the DS position. Jada High is the only returning starter that stayed in the same position and has picked up from where she left off a year ago.
Others that look to earn starting positions this season are Aleya Hueftle and Johanna Ford who look to move into the middle hitter positions. Jennica Dannehl will take over on the right side and Macie Steinbrink looks to add strength to the team as a serving specialist.
Even though the Vikings will be taking on many tough teams, they hope to grow together and become one of the top contenders in the area. According to Coach Mason, “The girls have worked very hard this season and have made a lot of gains. We have a lot of potential to do some great things this season.”
Returning to this year’s team are seniors Lindsay Schutz and Grace Schwarz, juniors Jada High and Jennica Dannehl, sophomores Macie Steinbrink, Anna Pelton, Karley Patterson, Erin Boggs, and Aleya Hueftle. Incoming freshman are Johanna Ford, Jordan Hilmer, Julissa Estrada, Jameson High, Yesenia Lopez, and Kenzy Drain.

Don’t miss Give2Grow 2016!
Give2Grow is a powerful 24-hour fundraising competition that brings together people who care with causes that matter in Phelps County. This event, hosted by the Phelps County Community Foundation, allows you to support groups and organizations creating meaningful impact. Your gifts will grow when they receive a pro-rated share of the matching pool.
This year, Bertrand Community School is promoting two Give2Grow projects. The first is for the Bertrand Community School Foundation that helps support graduating seniors with scholarships. Donations are needed in order to keep scholarships available.
The second project is for the new Bertrand Community School Fitness Center. This project began through a need for a local “work out center” for the members of the Bertrand Community and needed weight room improvements for the athletes and students at the Bertrand Community School.
Both projects are very worthy causes. Please consider giving on Nov. 17.
