Message from Mr. Gering

Hello Badger Fans.  Can you believe the first quarter is already over?  A big thank you to everyone who attended our Parent/Teacher conferences.  A lot has happened since my last article.  Starting with sports, it has been a crazy yet amazing finish to our fall seasons.  Football had an amazing comeback win over Priest River to secure second place in the IML.  They ended the season with a loss to Fruitland in the State play-in game.  Not to be outdone, the volleyball team came back in the district tournament with a big win over Timberlake and a win over Kellogg to qualify them for their State play-in game.  They traveled to Grangeville where their season ended to a tough Emmett team.  Soccer had a great season as well.  The girls team defeated St. Maries in the first round but lost to a tough Coeur d’ Alene Charter.  The boys won their first district game over Priest River and went on to win the District championship with a great win over St. Maries.  Their win at district sent them to Vallivue high school to compete in the Idaho State Championship tournament.   Last but not least, Cross Country had a great season as well.  At the district meet we had six individual medalists and both the boys and girls team place second qualifying them to compete in state.  Congratulations to Jordan Young for placing 16th and winning a state medal, and to coach Warner for winning the IML coach of the year for the second year in a row!  Can you believe winter sports are already here?  Girls Basketball has begun already with Boys Basketball and Wrestling starting soon.  Thank you to the coaches, volunteers, and all Badger fans for supporting our student athletes. 


Although sports tend to receive a lot of the attention, we have great things happening in the school as well.  Alpha+ Robotics is gearing up for the season for the game this year called "Stronghold".  They meet at the middle school and are always looking for mentors from the community.  Visit the website for more information. 


David Carpenter and the Drama team have been working on a “A Year With Frog and Toad”  They have been selected to perform for the Idaho School Board Association conference taking place this week in Coeur d’ Alene.  They will perform at home sometime in January.  They also have a Performing Arts Competition later this month. 


The Auto Shop is basically complete. BFHS and Mr. DePriest would like to thank everyone for their donations.   Students are now getting their hands dirty and working on cars. We are looking for teachers, friends, or community members people who can provide vehicles for students to do simple tasks like oil/filter/lubes, and basic spark and compression tests.  If you would like to support the auto shop program give us a call.
