Mr. Wilson

Please congratulate the wrestlers on an outstanding showing at the Middle School Regional Tournament this past weekend.  In what was the most grueling middle school tournament of the year, our Patton wrestlers shined. Mickey Johnson paced the team with a 5th place finish in a 32 man bracket.  This finish got Mickey onto the podium, and qualified him for the Middle School State Championships this weekend. Max Vander Meide also had a very strong showing, piling up several wins to get himself into the quarterfinals.  Max showed the 26 kids in his weight class that he is a force to be reckoned with. Justin Jackson also competed despite feeling under the weather. Justin raised some eyebrows in his first year competing in the sport of wrestling.  Justin will be a leader next year. Mason Marshall competed against 27 other wrestlers in his weight class. Mason battled fiercely and unfortunately suffered a minor injury in his final match. Connor Clifford also took to the mat for the Mustangs, and despite giving up several pounds to his opponents he wrestled his heart out.  We look forward to Connor suiting up for the Mustangs again next year as an 8th grader. Wrestlers, there are spring workouts starting this week. If you need information on those, please see Mr. Wilson.

Gradek/Payne

Mr. Payne, Ms. Gradek and Mr. Silver would like to say thanks for a great intramural basketball season.  Nice job to everyone who played and special thanks to our stats crew!

This a reminder for students that use the library for morning activity time.  Last week we had several students leave their games out and forget to tuck in their chairs.  If you use the library for activity time, please clean up after yourself. This means putting games away and tucking in your chair.  It also means you don't bring food or drink into the library, you don't run around, and you don't use the computers unless you visit one of the websites posted.  If these rules aren't followed, we will have to close or limit the number of students. We love having you there, but you need to make the space welcoming for all Patton students.  Battle of the Books continue today. During A lunch, ASO vs. LeBron. During B lunch, Blinkarmy vs. Blaze Readers. Good luck to all the teams!

Just a reminder to students that use the library for morning activity time.  Wednesday morning we had a large crowd, and when everyone left for 1st period, it was a disaster.  Most of the chairs were left untucked, including all the chairs at the computers and at the brown tables.  A few games were left out. PLEASE clean up after yourself, including tucking in your own chair and putting things away where you found them.

Good Morning all of you Mustangs out there.  This is Mr. Howard, just reminding you that the end of the quarter is coming up on January 30th.  Here is a thought for everyone as the 30th is quickly approaching. “If you put it off until tomorrow, tomorrow you’ll probably put it off too.”  So, talk to your teachers about your grade and assignments. You don't have time to put things off.

Just a quick reminder for everyone.  During lunch, once your table is dismissed you must choose the location that you would like to stay at for the remainder of lunch.    We cannot have students moving back and forth between the gym/track and commons. We also need to have students that choose to go to the library, stay in the library for the entirety of lunch.  Again, you must stay in the location that you choose to go once your table is released. Thank you mustangs!

Lunch Time Supervisors

Unfortunately today the gym will be closed during B-lunch.  Continued inappropriate behaviors by several students using the gym have made it necessary for us to close the gym area today.  In order to use the gym area and play basketball we need to have students behaving safely and following the directions of the adult supervisors.  This only impacts the gym during B-Lunch. Thank you Mustangs.

Jackson Chytka (Kit-Ka) wrestled tough and improved during each of his matches.    Justin Jackson competed valiantly, winning 2 of his 3 matches in impressive fashion. Cash Anderson displayed his wrestling prowess, getting his hand raised one time. Tristan Root laid it all on line and get his best effort against some stout competition.  Tristan Stevens showed flashes of brilliance during the match. Jesse Jones-Nguyen wrestled an epic match to start off the tournament. Mason Marshall continued his ascent, as he gets better each time he steps on the mat. Carson Webber Toney stepped out in the circle and gave it his all.  Tyler Martino continues to be an asset to the team, as he helped out while he recovers from his injury. As Dan Gable once said "Once you have wrestled, everything else in life is easy!" Go Grizzly Wrestlers!

The Grizzly defense played their best and last game of the season against a BIG Lebanon team.  Both teams had an unbeaten season up to this game. But the Grizzlies could not be stopped. The Grizzlies came out ahead and won the game 46 to 16.  The Grizzlies frustrated the Warriors all night with an aggressive, menacing defense. Coleman Searcy and Jesse Jones lived in the Lebanon backfield with several tackles for a loss.  Jesse also caused and recovered a fumble. Brandon Birney and DeAndre Sanchez had some great blitzes and tackles. The big hit of the night belonged to Cameron Anderson when he made a tackle that you could hear a mile away.  Isaiah Donahue and Max Vandermeide locked down the Lebanon wide receivers with great coverage. Bobby Farwell was his typical happy self and was a great teammate all year. Overall, the Grizzly D did a tremendous job. The Grizzly Offensive MACHINE was led by Max Saltmarsh and the big boys of the “O” line. The outcome of the game was never in doubt from the opening kick. The Grizzlies had big plays from Mickey Johnson, Tyler Mishler and Brandon Birney who combined with the offensive explosion from Tariku Rue and Austin Rapp.  They left Lebanon scratching their heads in frustration. Austin Rapp, behind a really TOUGH offensive line, rushed for over 140 yards and 3 touchdowns, however Tariku Rue was not to be outdone. He rushed for over 100 yards, he had a punt return for a TD and over 100 yards in punt returns. Tariku also threw a pass to Tyler Mishler for 45 yards. Tyler Martino got in on the action scoring a 3 yard TD, and Madison Cowlthorp and Garrett Yates also had nice runs. All in All it was a great team win. Congratulations Grizzlies on a terrific 2018 season. Go Grizzlies!!!

Great hustle plays all around by everyone including Madi Fox and Lizbeth Reyes Villa. Setting was ran by Lexie and Sophie Conover and they did a great job setting all their hitters. Great digs from Libby Hardee kept Patton ahead of Duniway the entire match. The front line was dominated by Taylor Preston and Emma Lane. Avery Grell had a great match as nothing got past her in the middle. Emilee Roberts had another great match blocking and hitting. Great job A team!  The B team match started off strong with a string of serves from Amelia Christensen and Mimi Bajinka. Claire Van Horn, who also saw action in the A game, led the team in serve receive passing and digs. Audra Erickson had some sweet saves in the game that gave Patton a huge advantage all match. Liliana Larrea was unstoppable at setting all season and set up her hitters well all night, including Halle Woolen, McKenzie Clifford and Ire Staten Browning. Halle had some great blocks during the game as well! A special shout out needs to go to Allie Rockwell who was our team manager and rocked it! Thank you Allie! Coach Gradek is super proud of how well everyone improved this season and is looking forward to cheering you on as Grizzlies next fall! Don’t forget today after school to meet in the Home Ec room for our team party! We will be done at 4:30.

Last night the 7th Grade Volleyball teams finished their season with a late night match against Duniway.  The B Team won all three sets, 25-9, 25-20 and 25-17. The B Team ends their season with a record of 7 wins and 4 loses.  The A Team played hard but lost in the last set to Duniway. Their scores were 21-24, 25-18 and 23-25. Their season record was also 7 wins, 4 loses.  Note from Coach Olson: Thank you to all the volleyball players who worked hard all season to improve their game. It was a blast watching you grow both as individual players and as a team.  Don't forget to meet after school in the HomeEc room for our end-of-the season party.

The Grizzly 8th grade football team went up against a good Tiger football team from Dallas here at Duniway Middle School.  The Grizzly offense sputtered a little bit against a tough Dallas defense with a couple key offensive lineman out, however some other players like Kale Lavenger and Jesse Jones stepped up to the job.  The Grizzlies still scored 28 points, beating Dallas 28-24. Austin Rapp was the work horse scoring a couple TD,s and rushing for a tough 130 yards. Tyler Mishler scored on a diving catch in the end zone from Brandon Bomberger and Tariku Rue scored on an exciting 50 yard jet sweep. Max Saltmarsh and Austin weeks had a crucial first down on 3rd down and 14 yards to the line of gain.  The Grizzly defense had some good moments yesterday against Dallas. Brandon Bomberger forced a fumble that Max Saltmarsh recovered. Jesse Jones and Mason Yochum made several big plays in the backfield to put Dallas in tough situations. Mickey Johnson and TJ Lake were also instrumental in slowing down the run. The DB's had some good moments as well. Micheil Cross had a nice tackle and Max Vandermeide was his usual tough self.  Preston Moniz had a perfectly timed blitz to blow up a running play. All in all, there were a lot of positives from the Grizzlies to stay undefeated. Next week Thursday the Grizzlies travel to Lebanon to take on a power house of a team. Kick-off is at 5:30pm at the Lebanon High School. Go Grizzlies.
