Bethany McCarthy renamed our statue out front, which was created in honor of her father, longtime Northview Hockey Coach Jim Cooper, the Coop-brrrr Cat, yesterday.

Patrick Andres was named the Sylvania Chamber of Commerce Student of the Month. Ms. Huey had this to say about Patrick, “Patrick Andres is one of those rare students a teacher will never forget, and for all the best reasons. He is a talented and humble sports writer, a highly motivated student, and an incredibly respectful person. In the time he has been on the newspaper staff he has attended two different sports writing conferences for high school journalists. The first was two summers ago at the Carolina Sports Journalism Workshop where he had the rare honor of having his work peer-reviewed twice. The second was this past summer when he attended the Michigan
Interscholastic Press Association summer workshop for high school journalists where
he participated in a press conference with professional basketball player Desmond
Ferguson. Patrick asked a question that not only showed he knows sports, and boy
does Patrick know sports, but that he knew about Ferguson’s basketball history
including his college years. Ferguson literally looked shocked at the quality of Patrick’s
question and his breadth of knowledge. None of this came as a surprise to myself or the
Co-Editors who were there, we have seen how well versed Patrick is in sports.
When we started training the newspaper staff this year Patrick asked if he could create
a presentation on how to write sports stories. I have never in my 20 years of teaching
seen a student create a better presentation, and he made it in one night! He not only hit
on all the major topics I would want, and some I had not even thought of, but he was
witty and related to the students through humor, video clips from Friends, and a stats
writing game.” Congratulations, Patrick!
Speaking of Students of the Month honors, Senior Hayden Bolden was selected by BCSN as their Scholar Spotlight for February. You can see the clip that is running on BCSN here.

The Boys Basketball Team is still ranked in the top ten in the state of Ohio, and is still undefeated, with a huge home game coming up this Friday against Anthony Wayne. A home win this Friday, which is also Senior Night, will lock up the NLL Championship for the Wildcats. The North (student section) will be taking over the lower bowl for a tie-dye Fill It Up, as they are hoping to create a great atmosphere for the Cats. Over the past few weeks, there have been some neat moments for the Cats. First, Alek West scored his 1,000th point on the road at Springfield…
He was properly honored the next night at home, as the Cats took on and defeated Bedford handily.
The Cats then went on the road to earn a season sweep of the Southview Cougars…
The Cats then returned home to defeat the Perrysburg Yellow Jackets for the second time this year, thanks to some clutch defensive plays down the stretch by Sam Clear and Billy Biggs…
If you have traveled to Napoleon to see a basketball game, you know that it is a tough place to win on the road. The Wildcats had no problem bringing home a big victory…
…and Senior Billy Biggs played so well there, he was named the BCSN Player of the Week!
