This past weekend, at both LHS and MHS, our band programs pulled off a double-header by hosting two major invitational competitions at our schools on the same day! The guard show for the MIchigan Color Guard Circuit was at Milford, while the drum line show for the Michigan Alliance for Performing Arts was at Lakeland. Our band programs came together to make this all happen (first time anyone has done this that we are aware of). Besides two very successful shows events, our Huron Valley Alliance WInter Guard finished 3rd in their class after an amazing run, scoring a 66.47. The drum line, Huron Valley Percussion, had a great run as well, and finished 2nd in their class with a 68.45. Special shout out to all the custodial staff, athletic directors and our trainers at both schools, administration, and everyone who helped make the shows possible. I am extremely proud of all our band parents, families, our kids, our band alumni, and everyone who helped make the weekend a success.

Coming into the season we knew we had solid crew of boys that could do great things this season and knew we had a good chance to win states this year. After the first race of the season we won in dominating fashion, I really knew this team was destined for a great season. During the second race of the season the boys set a league record winning 28 of 30 heats in one race. We ended winning our last 3 races going undefeated for the season bringing home the King of the Hill Championship for the East League. We went into the state qualifiers undefeated and knew we had a target on our back, after the season we had. But the boys came into the race with the confidence knowing they could continue winning and that what they did. They ended up winning the state qualifier by 137 points punching their ticket to the state finals. From Coach Jesionowski- We came into the State Finals on high note, having an undefeated season and knew we were one of the favorites to win it all. We knew if we raced consistent we could win the whole thing. We in fact did that and all the boys never finished outside the top 3 in all there heats and we ended up winning the State Championship by 179 points and finished the season undefeated.

An exciting season of robotics competition with our HOT Team ! The HOT Team is back in action! After a year of online robotics, the HOT Team is ready to take on this year’s game! Also known as Rapid React, this year’s game is based on airbourne transportation and even has a hangar for robots to park in at the end of each match. In Rapid React, FIRST robotics teams were challenged to build robots that can intake a game element that is a basketball sized tennis ball. Once the robots intake the game piece, they position themselves to shoot it into a nine foot tall structure positioned in the center of the field. This structure, known as the hub, has a high and low goal robots can score in, with the high goal earning teams two points for each scored game piece while the low goal only earns teams one point for each scored game piece. Towards the end of the game the teams can choose to keep scoring game elements, or if their robot is capable, they can choose to drive over to their team’s hangar positioned in a corner of the field. Upon reaching the hangar, robots can climb horizontal bars that increase in height up to seven feet and seven inches as the robot climbs along them. When the game ends, points are awarded based on the goal and number of scored field elements as well as the position and number of robots completely supported by the bars. After watching the kickoff as a team, the HOT Team met in person and started the engineering design process. First, students and mentors reviewed the different challenges posed by this year’s game and came up with innovative design solutions to tackle these particular problems. Then, mentors collaborated with students to actually start designing and prototyping the robot’s parts. So far in the HOT Team’s build season, we have made important decisions regarding the type of drivetrain we are using and are working on implementing our ideas for an intake to manipulate the game pieces. Everyone is fired up and ready to compete in Rapid React! ~N. Blanchard
