New Equations for the MS Girls Soccer Team!

By: Nelson Hubbell and Giovani Ortiz

Black Rivers MS Science teacher Mr. Brett Bittrick decided to retire from coaching the BR middle school girls soccer team to spend more time with his kids.  As a replacement BR 7 & 8 Math Teacher Mr. Daniel Johns will be an addition to the BR equation.  Hopefully his computations will be the sum for a successful middle school soccer season.  Coach Johns plans on bringing a new angle to how the team plays this season. Hopefully the team will show symmetry through their passing.  Mr. Johns new skills will hopefully multiply the chances of success.  The team will be to the power of three components; angle passing, parallel runs and parabola headers. The goal will be to not have the team eat too much pi and will be in shape.


Soccer Start Date

Middle School Soccer will not begin until March 25 due to the wintery weather.  If you have any questions, please contact Coach Lawton or Coach Bittrick.


BRPS Victory

BRPS Black Team vs. Northpointe Christian

It was the opening game of a legendary season, everyone could tell. BRPS Black soccer Team was facing Northpointe Christian. BRPS had a home field advantage because Northpointe doesn’t practice on a field that large, like BRPS does.

The game began with the crowd pepped up, and the players set and ready. When the whistle blew the players worked hard. The first goal of the game belonged to BRPS, thanks to Danae Winia. With a good beginning BRPS gained more confidence, however Northpointe wasn’t going to give up, even though the score during the first half ended up 1-0.

Working well together as a team during the second half, BRPS’ Ashlynn kicked a sharp pass to Chelsea who scored the second goal. Now that the BRPS girls had a two point lead, the Northpointe girls began to step up their game. They attempted to try to score on BPRS’ unstoppable goalie, Abri Ingrassia, but BRPS’ defense was too good and didn’t let Northpointe pass them. “I stopped the few ones that came to me, however I didn’t have to stop many because the defense was so good,” Abri said. Anna Stubbs commented, “Abri never made us nervous, she is so good.”

When Maggie Christie scored the third goal, the game was practically sealed. There was 45 seconds left, however Northpointe played as if their lives counted on it. When the final whistle sounded, the crowd cheered and congratulated the winners. Isaac French said, “I thought the game went well, they won 3-0.”

The BRPS girls practiced hard and dominated the game, earning their win.
