    Puerto Rico has been dark for 28 days! Remember-- Puerto Rico is part of the United States and we are talking about fellow Americans!  In memory of the families that has been affected by hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico; here are some aftereffects of hurricane:

    -Many shelters has been destroyed

    -Lack of food and water as well as hygiene products, transportation, electricity and communicational services

    -Many families has lost contact with their family members; in fact, some family members are not found yet and 62% of the population hasn’t received any help

    -Storm has destroyed 80% of Puerto Rico's crops which is $780 million of Puerto Rico’s agriculture

    -The hospitals are running out of medical supplies (hospitals only have 2-3 days worth of medical supplies and medicines)

    -If you wish to help fight the cause, buy tickets for “Pay to Play Privilege”

    The Cross Country Team competed in the Arcola Invitational on Friday.  Raymond Welgosh and Jack Larkin came home with hardware.  These two finished 1st and 2nd overall in the 3000 meter race, an amazing accomplishment.

     

    The JV football squad wandered up North to Springford in order to take on the Rams.  This was the second meeting with the Rams in 3 weeks, serving as a rematch for the boys.  But it was tough sledding from the get go as the Rams battered their way to the end zone more than a few times.  Despite the heavy scoring of the Rams, the Vikings kept their heads enough to find the end zone as Quinny Seals propelled his way into the endzone with a score after a mile long catch by Marcus Critters put them in great field position.  Some other key players in the game were Wyatt Hart Valve, Rhy’s Pieces Jackson, Chambers of Secrets, Devon of House Shire, Preston Earl Thomas, and Sean Premade Prendergast.  Keep working boys.

    Yesterday, we introduced our “Where’s Mr. Lacuelldo” competition and there may have been some confusion as to how to compete.  Some of you might have thought to look for THE actual Mr. Laucella, however you are not actually looking for a real human being.  Mr. Laucelldo is merely a paper object that can be taped anywhere in the building.  Some students, however, were on the quest yesterday and with ONE clue….Olivia Smith found him on the ceiling in the hallway outside of the Family and Consumer Science Classrooms.  Kudos to Olivia Smith for being the first to find him and email the proof!  Did we mention that Olivia Smith won?  Thanks for all who participated!

    Many of you are familiar with Where’s Waldo, a sneaky hidden figure amongst the likes of his peers.  He is good at hiding in plain sight.  Mr. Laucella, an accomplished 7th grade science teacher, has decided to take on a new role this year…..he wants to be like Waldo….he wants to hide from the students in this building on a regular basis.  This year, we will introduce a new announcement competition to find MR. LAUCELLDO!  Look for Mr. Laucelldo around the school, take a picture of him, and send the picture to jquenzer@umasd.org in order to win a small prize AND to be on the annoucements.  This competition will not take place during an class period, your goal is to casually look for Mr. Laucelldo as you walk the halls from class to class in a CALM manner.  Mr. Laucelldo is currently hiding, and here is your first clue: Mr. Laucelldo loves to hide in high up places!  He could be anywhere around the school!

Sets were by Julia and Caitlyn were one target with Julia having some great kills. Passes were on by Camryn L., Ashley P., Visha P., Carolyn K., Chase L., Lindsey K., Alison L., Visha P., and Leah F.

Despite a last minute push which saw a beautiful cross from Steve G to Lucas B's head just miss in the final seconds the Vikings were unable to reward Ashton Fox's third shut out of the season with a win. On Monday, The Vikings played a non leaguer against TE. Trailing 2-0 at half, the Vikings made another last minute charge. Nick "Triple Lindy" Lindelow connected with Lucas 'Bees Knees" Bielgalski to draw the Vikings within a score.

As time expired Y Yan Yan Ma Lopes sent a pinpoint cross which found Lucas B's head and skimmed high off the crossbar as the Vikings were unable to draw even.

    Attention to anyone who is interested in wrestling, there will be an open clinic running Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 8pm from October 16th through November 15th.  There is no cost for the clinic so find the permission forms at your lunch, get it signed by a guardian, and wrestle.

    Yesterday the Blue Football team traveled a million miles to Perk Valley West for their 4th game of the year.  The boys moved the ball on offense with ease and controlled the time of possession by a landslide, however it was turnovers that acted as the achilles heal in the game.  The lone Viking touchdown came from Quinn Seals as he took a kickoff 60 yards to the house.  Some stellar leadership came from the Aviator Avion, Downright Devonshire, and Thomas the Train.  Other standout players in the game were Varnman Varnas, TBall Jay Hanley, Chambers of Hollows, Marcus the Man, Dyl Bill Ferraro, and Wyatt Hart Valve.  The boys will continue working hard as they look to get that dub next week.

     

    Yesterday, the Gold and Blue Girls Soccer Team had a great win against Pottstown. Two sets of hat tricks were scored by both Erin Wellington and Aislinn Roberts. Other goals were scored by Sedona Hansell and Anna Walmsley. Great job, ladies. Good luck in your game on Friday!  

     

    Yesterday the Gold boys soccer team stormed back to the win column by defeating Pottstown by a score of 5 to nothing. Scoring goals were Casey Lamey, Alex Paoli, Grant Snyder, Patryk Rojek and Grant Parker. Having outstanding games were Aidan Hirshorn, Patrick Tierney, Brandon Vo, Justin Vo , Sarjbot Badesha and Elias Yirenkyi. The boys are at it again on Friday against Perk Valley East.

    Yesterday 8th grade football took on East Norriton and came out with a dub. The game started out slow but then fly high machi had a 75 yard kick return to open up the rally. Suddenly Joey Kovacic throws a 65 yard dime to ty "thank you" jones for a touchdown. Meanwhile on defense Kitty Cat Gerace and Gus the groundhog Costello made stellar tackles. But most importantly the dynamic duo t train brown and Johnny tank dinolfi were making tons of tackles for loss. But all of these plays can't happen without Rocco Lindelows great snaps. As time ticks down the Vikings are up 14-6 then Joey Kovacic runs for a 35 yard a touchdown to put the Vikings up by even more. Neo 21 Johnson had a interception to seal the win for the Vikings. Great game boys.
