Lacrosse - Possible HS sport in spring 2016
May 14, 2015
We are considering the addition of both a boys and a girls Holly/Brandon co-op lacrosse team for the spring of 2015-16.  Anyone currently attending an elementary, middle or high school in Holly is welcome to attend a meeting to discuss the addition of lacrosse as a high school sport. Two meetings will be held to gage the interest level of those in our community.  You may attend whatever meeting is most convenient for you.  Meetings are open to students and parents K-12.

The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 2nd @ 6:30pm at Holly HS.  

The second meeting will be held on Thursday, June 4th @ 6:30pm at Brandon HS.  

Lacrosse will be a self-funded sport; in other words, school sponsored but not school funded. This is similar to the other recent additions to the athletic department offerings of HS hockey, HS bowling, MS bowling, MS swim and 8th grade BB/SB.

Plan to attend either meeting if at all interested.  Information is being gathered and will be distributed at the meeting.  If you can not attend, contact me after the meeting via email and I will send information at that time.

If you have experience as a college lacrosse player or lacrosse coach, please contact me at deb.vankuiken@has-k12.org.

Area Volleyball Community Cares About our Kids
August 15, 2010
Fall Sports began this past week and due to a recent resignation we began the season without a varsity volleyball coach.  As of 9:10pm Saturday night, we have a very qualified woman willing to coach the team this season and she will be introduced to the girls on Monday at their 4pm practice.  The reason for this post, however, is to share that during our week without a coach, people in the volleyball community - including those who formerly coached at HHS and those employed at other local schools such as Fenton, Swartz Creek, Linden, Lake Fenton and Grand Blanc specifically - have worked with me in attempting to come up with a qualified candidate for our program.  This clearly demonstrates that we are only opponents ON the court.  Many thanks to them.

HHS Student receives Michigan Dept. of Education Breaking Traditions Merit Award.
May 14, 2010
On Thursday, May 13th, Valerie Smith was invited to Lansing to receive the "Michigan Department of Education Breaking Traditions Merit Award."  This award is given to students who of a particular gender participate in a technical field that is atypical for them. Valerie was considered due to her successful participation in Drafting & CAD, Architecture, Engineering, and Robotics.  She is one of 14 in the state to receive this award. 

While growing up, Valerie wanted to be an architect, she soon discovered robotics and CAD.  These programs have opened the door to Engineering by teaching the building and design processes.  The FIRST Corporation (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) teaches about engineering and technology and this is where she first learned of Kettering University and the LITE program (Lives Improve through Engineering).  The LITE program gave her an opportunity to learn the basics of engineering. It was through this experience that Valerie found her love - Bio mechanics.  She likes the medical field and upon her discovery of bio mechanics, she will pursue her studies in mechanical engineering with a Bio specialty at Kettering University.  She wants to design machines that help the human body whether it is prosthetics or surgical tools.  Good luck and congratulations Valerie!

Jonathon Beeler - Division I High Jump State Champ!
May 30, 2009
Jonathon Beeler is now the MHSAA Division I state champion with a jump of 6'8".  Earlier this season, Beeler broke the school record, set by Andy Ollie in 2006, with a jump of the same height (see photo).  The Flint Journal / M-Live ran the following story...
Holly junior Jonathon Beeler had to make two do-or-die jumps to win the high jump.  He needed to clear 6 feet, 7 inches on his third and final attempt to stay in contention. Because Midland's Andrew Maxwell made 6-7 on his second jump, Beeler needed to clear 6-8 to win the title.  Again, Beeler came through in his final opportunity to become only the second Holly state track and field champion in the last 27 years. "I felt a lot of pressure on me to make that jump," Beeler said. "I really wanted to win states and I did. It put a little bit more pressure on me. I was nervous coming into this. My coaches told me to relax and go into this with confidence."  Congratulations Jonathon!
