Taiyiah wrestled on the 19th at Heartland in the Regional tournament, and had two of the top 3 girls in the state in her bracket. She needed to place top 4 in the regional to advance to state. Tailyiah is currently ranked 5th in the state and lost her first match against Lillianna Garcia from Grand Blanc who is third in the state. She then Pinned her second opponent from Whitmore-Prescott Shelby Holtz in 22 seconds. Her finals match for 3rd place she wrestled Cecilia Williams from Coloma, and pinned her in 24 seconds. Kylar Mcaulay and Dominic Krabill both made it to regionals the day before and Dominic pinned a wrestler who was ranked 9th Ayden Pratt from Roscommon. Neither ended up advancing to state but they both had pretty extraordinary years. Laney Stover also wrestled for the girls on Sunday and had a very hard bracket but did well. Tailyiah will now be traveling to Ford Field for the State tournament on march 3rd and 4th, last year she placed 5th.

Please have your students contact their coaches to find out specific details regarding their practice time and location. Girls Basketball at Carson City will still be played but the time has been moved to 6pm. Competitive Cheer and the Boys JV/V Basketball game will be played as scheduled.
The Farwell High School's National Honor Society wrapped up their Teddy Bear and Blanket Drive today, 2/14/23. The drive started on January 11th and we had an outstanding amount of participation from community members and students. The teddy bears and blankets were collected to give to the Clare County Sheriff Department for them to give to children they encounter on scene as an offer of comfort in an otherwise difficult time. Thank you to everyone who showed their support by spreading the word and donating. We appreciate it beyond what words can express and could never do what we do without your help!

The Eagles came back with a vengeance in the Petersons, taking 4 point and totals in the first and 3 points and totals in the second giving Farwell a winning score of 17-13. Dakota Wardles took 2 points and helped put the Eagles ahead on pins with a 233 and a 188. Grant Lease had to leave early, but not before taking a point.
