92nd Dakota Relays get under way today at Howard Wood More than 3,000 athletes expected for large meet

By Maddie VanderFeen tarting today members of the WHS track and field team will be competing in the 92nd running of the Dakota Relays. It is the region’s largest meet and will continue into tomorrow at Howard Wood Field. This two day event will host more than 3,000 high school athletes on what is expected to be an excellent weekend for a track meet with light breezes and highs in the 70’s. Both college and high school students will compete in field events beginning at 10:30 a.m. today and track events will begin at 2:30 p.m. today. Things will wrap-up around 6:30 p.m. Saturday with the AA Boys 4 x 400 meter relay. Highlights will include the special events highlighting the best high school runners from the region—the girls special 800 will be at 7:25 p.m. tonight and the boys special 200 at 8 p.m. tonight.

WHS has no one running in the events, however seniors Kelsi Kearney in the girls and Ethan McKinney in the boys are the alternates in the races. Kearney said she is ready for a good weekend. “I am excited to run in my last high school Howard Wood Relays,” Kearney said, “especially the 4 x 8 we’ve been practicing, and getting better in practice.” Coach Everett Gebhart said he is excited for this year’s relays. “The Dakota Relays will be a good test to see how we stack up against some of the best in the Midwest,” Gebhart said. “If you can do well at the Dakota Relays, you can do well at the state meet at the end of the month—it is harder to place in the Dakota Relays than at the state meet. We are looking to improve all of our performances this weekend. With the great weather forecast and good competition, we should be able to turn in some great performances.”

Tennis, baseball teams fall to opponents Boys Tennis

By Erika Lehan Varsity boys tennis team members fell to the Patriots 9-0 at Lincoln, losing all matches Thursday. Senior Nic Gregg isn’t letting this loss get him down. “Last night no one really played Sports t h e i r best,” Gregg said. “It was a tough loss, but hopefully we can change the results when we play them this Saturday.” The boys will have another chance at the Metro Conference Meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at McKennan Park.

FOLLOW US, WARRIORS!

Baseball

By Taylor Anderson WHS baseball teams were in action against Brandon Valley at all levels Thursday night. The varsity fell to Brandon Valley 10-0 at Harmodon Park. Seniors Austin Kubik and Nolan Behr were on the mound for the Warriors. The JV team split two games with the Lynx at Valley Springs, losing 5-4 and winning 3-0.

Girls Golf

By Sydney Stallinga Girls golf varsity team members played in the Huron Invitational Thursday at the Broadland Creek Golf Course. Senior Amber Obenauer said the invitational was fun. “We did pretty good overall as a team and it was good for us to play the Huron course in order to prepare us for State,” Obenauer said. O’Gorman took first with 333 strokes. All WHS News

Senior excited about sport of spikeball Recently in gym class I had the privilege of learning the game of spikeball. Spikeball is a sport played two-on-two, with a taut hoola hoop sized spikeball net placed between the two teams. A player starts a point by serving the ball down on the net so it ricochets up at his or her Hear me. . . opponents. They have up to three hits between them—just like volleyball—to Kelsi Kearney control the ball and bounce it back off the net. The first team to get to 21 points wins. Spikeball can be played inside or outside. To learn more about spikeball you can go on YouTube and look up tips

and top plays. I recently had the honor of playing spikeball with senior Kylee Haub in third period sports officiating class this week. The game can get pretty intense and heated arguments can sometimes arise pretty rapidly with competitive players like us. Without taking a loss, we dominated all competition. We are now trying to further our skills and careers by trying to participate in an advanced summer league, but the competition is somewhat lacking here at WHS. Not only is spikeball an entertaining sport to watch and play, it also benefits your health by getting your heart rate up. It is a fun way to interact with family and friends. If you’re looking for something to entertain your guests at your graduation parties, Spikeball is the best option. So get spiking now! Senior Kelsi Kearney and Kylee Haub are looking for some real competition.

Stone Age dental care no picnic

By Bruce Bower Science News Today (TNS) Ouch! And eww! Two teeth from a person who lived in what’s now northern Italy between 13,000 and 12,740 years ago show signs of Stone Age dentistry. And the good doctor, back then, didn’t drill and fill cavities. That dentist scraped them out.

Science Friday Then he (or she) coated them with bitumen. It’s a natural, tarry form of crude oil. (Folks back then used the same sticky goop to attach stone tools to handles.) The newly studied teeth bore signs of someone having removed infected soft, inner tissue. That’s what a research team led by Gregorio Oxilia and Stefano Benazzi concludes. These biological anthropologists work at the University of Bologna in Italy. An earlier study found evidence that farmers up to 9,000 years ago may have used stone tools to drill out dental cavities. But the newly described dentistry is far, far older than that. This suggests that ways to remove tooth decay clearly developed long before farmed foods rich in starch and sugars made cavities more common. The Bologna team described its new findings online March 27. They appear in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Two years ago, Oxilia and Benazzi’s team reported that a pointed stone tool had apparently been used to remove decayed tissue from a tooth. It came from a man who had been buried some 14,000 years ago in what is now Italy. Says Benazzi, these Italian finds are the only known examples of dentistry by Stone Age people who foraged for food. By that he means these folk were not farmers. They would have hunted animals for meat and gathered nuts, roots and berries. This toothy evidence, he adds, may point to “a broader trend, or tradition” of early dentistry among late Stone Age hunter-gatherers in what is now Italy.
