Hello again, my name is Hunter Larson and I am a senior from Aberdeen High School located on the western side of the state. I attend Grays Harbor College located miles from the high school where I am obtaining my AA degree. I recently finished up my golf season. I made state for the first time, but the state tournament is held in the spring. With the fall season coming to a close, it is almost time for winter sports to begin. I play basketball during the winter season and play baseball during the spring.
This fall has been hard on some of our teams. Our football team is very young and they are continuing to get better every week, but our league is proving to be very tough. Our soccer team missed the district playoffs by one game. They had a great game last Tuesday but lost 3-2 in a shootout. They also have a very young team and have shown a substantial amount of potential for the years to come. Our swim team, who tends to be a pretty dominant force, is rebuilding their team after the loss of some key swimmers. They have a couple swimmers in districts and some swimmers only need to improve a second or two to make state.
Even though some teams are rebuilding their programs, there are still some teams who are doing considerably well this fall season. Golf, as mentioned earlier, is sending someone to state this year under their new head coach Harley Revel. Tennis sent a player to the district tournament but sadly fell short of making state. Our cross country team is sending multiple people to state this year. Poli Baltazaar is one of these runners and broke every course record that he ran at.
My high school just recently hosted our yearly homecoming dance. The dance went very well this year and raised quite a bit of money. The theme of our homecoming this year was the Wizard of Oz. Along with the dance, our homecoming football game went very well as well. Our halftime float show that we hold displayed every class from the freshmen to the seniors. Driving along side of the senior float was the Aberdeen high school Spirit Car. This car is driven around to Aberdeen sporting events, both home and away, and represents the school spirit of our class. The car will take donations at local games that will be collected and used by the ASB Athletic branch.
