WOWT-TV Field Trip

  On Tuesday, several speech students in TV newcasting, radio broadcasting, and also a couple of Mr. Grebin's students were able to visit the WOWT TV station in Omaha, Nebraska. The high school students had the chance to learn about the ins and outs of the full production. We viewed both the control room and the recording studio. The students went to the news station with Mr. Grebin, Mrs. Mainquist, and Mr. Mainquist. 

   It was great to visit with meteorologist Mallory Schnell and have her give us the grand tour. We also learned from meteorologist Clay Ostarly. The anchors, Serese Cole and Emily Dwire, answered our questions and shared tips on presenting. Everything we learned will tie back into the STEM Best Program that Mr. Grebin is working on. It will also help the TV broadcasting group with their final production for contest. It was a great opportunity for them to see how they can put all this into action. Please stay tuned for great things to come from the students! Thanks again for the members of the WOWT news team!

Viqueen Basketball

  Viqueens lost a 44-42 heartbreaker to Sidney Tuesday night. The game was a back and forth affair as Sidney took a 22-16 halftime lead to the locker room. Sidney outscored the Queens 12-3 in the second frame. In the third quarter the Queens made a run to cut the lead to 2. 

  The Queens (9-2) were in action at SW Valley last night and at home against Griswold tonight. Corner Conference Tournament action starts next week with the #1 seed Viqueens playing Essex at Clarinda Academy on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.

Viking Basketball

The Vikings took on Clarinda Academy Monday evening and came away with a win, 85-36. The team got off to good start and were able to shoot pretty well throughout to get and keep the solid lead. They had 20 assists on the night and did a good job of getting ball to open man. The team also got the line and drew some fouls.  A good conference win to start the week.

  Tuesday the Sidney Cowboys came to town and the Vikings came away with a 60-51 win. The team was able to work up to a 6-8 point lead and never controlled the ball enough to stretch it out enough.  They hit free-throws down the stretch to stay ahead hitting 9 out of 10 in the 4th quarter.

  The Junior Varsity boys played Sidney on Tuesday. The team got off to a 12-1 lead and got it to 19 with 4 minutes left but Sidney made a late charge off of turnovers cut it to 6 before the Vikings were able to hang on with the win, 46-40.
