BHS Announcements for January 22, 2020
Bulletin for 01-22-20
An idiom is a combination of words that has a figurative meaning, due to its common usage, idioms are not to be taken literally. Today’s idiom: Curiosity killed the cat: The origin of this idiom is unclear but it is currently used to warn someone against being too curious as this could cause harm or lead them into an unpleasant situation.
CONGRATS to the girls swimmer/divers who remain undefeated in their dual competitions. At Columbus last night it came down to the very last event. We understand that you were tied with Columbus going into the 400 free relay, whereupon your girls relay team of Mikwena Lierman, Laci Havlat, Crystal Craft and Maya Moran, took first place leaving Columbus with 2nd and 3rd, therefore you received 8 points leaving Columbus with only 6 points. The boys team spread themselves thin, making sure they had an athlete in each race, some swimming races they were unfamiliar with. Congratulations to and Thank You for your efforts. Personal Best Performances by Beatrice athletes: Linnea Edeal- 200 IM, Ian Scheele- 200 IM, Erik Holloway- 200 IM, Laney Stevens – 100 free, Averi Kolb – 100 free, Hayden Stevens – 100 free and Jaidyn Vanschoiack – 100 back.
