SCHOOL and SPORTS I Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District [ Norwalk Warriors Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News NHS Football Team Community Service Day For most guys waking up on the day of prom, thoughts going through their minds would be things like I need to pick up my tux, did I get the correct color of shirt and did I get the reservations taken care of, not I need to get up to help out my com- munity. But that was ex- actly the thought of 30 young men from the Norwalk Football Team. Saturday, May 1, the Norwalk Football War- riors held their first An- nual Community Service Day, consisting of cleaning up five-acre park in Lake- wood, Butterfly Park, City Park, McDonalds Woods and finishing up the day at Windflower Park. The young men made piles of limbs and rubbish, picked up trash and bro- ken glass and even drug an old bicycle out of a creek and what they received in return was a couple pieces of pizza and the feeling of doing something great for their community. The football team thanks the City of Norwalk's Public Works Department for helping out with this project, and the Parks and Rec. Depart- ment for helping set up this project, providing materials to work with and lunch at the end of the day. Those in attendance for the Community Service day were: Evan Kimberlin, Tyler Van Gorder, Tommy Greene, Kyle Hopkins, Aaron Westphalen, Kory Anderson, Zach Spurr, Grant Bosch, Tod Hodges, Jordan McKenzie, Conner Janovec, Sam George, Tyler Stanley, Michael Lewiston, Kyle Krause, Trevor Tolliver, Jake Lutcavish, Trey Castle, Ben Elliott, Zach Cowie, Alex Landgrebe, Zak Eshoo, Zach Elliott, Zach Crain, Austin Katzureck, Eric Bagby, Devin Verwers, Brandon Johnson, Kolby Greenslade and Bailey Scott. This was the third op- portunity for the members of the football team to vol- unteer for Community Service. The other oppor- tunities included a Polar Plunge with Hodges, Johnson, Kimberlin, Nick Huffman and Verwers in attendance. Also, members of the team helped out at PTO Fun Night. Those that helped with that included Johnson, Verwers, Kimberlin, Hopkins, Gar- ret Gillen and Huffman. Look for Helmets for Hunger to begin in Au- gust. After Prom A Success This year the Norwalk High School Prom was held Saturday, May 1. Before Prom, the After Prom Committee had the "Grand March" at the high school. It was an opportunity for the community members to see the students dressed in their Prom clothes and for parents to take pictures. The committee hopes that this event will grow every year. Colby Gampbell, Rodney Martinez, Rick Stageman and others helped with the Grand March and parents helped chaperone at After Prom. The After Prom Committee gives a big thank you to the students who attended the Grand March and After Prom. The committee firmly believes that this is a very important event and they do it for you.

Thursday, May 13, 2010 NHS Girls' Soccer News The Norwalk girls re- cently won two Little Hawkeye games to move their record to 4-0 in con- ference play and 7-2 over- all. The Warriors played their first home game of the season Tuesday, April 27, as they shut out South Tama 5-0. As has been Norwalk's forte this year, they got out to an early lead in the fifth minute of play as Sarah Schreck put the ball in the net on a pass from Kalie Palmer. Norwalk netted two more goals in the next six minutes as Schreck set up Megan Patava twice for the next two goals. Hali VanVelzen finished the first half scoring on Schreck's third assist. Norwalk possessed the ball for most of the second half when Schreck netted a late game goal for the 5- 0 final. Norwalk was home again Thursday, April 29, as they won 3-0 against Knoxville. The Warriors got off 22 shots to just six for the Panthers in the first half, but none found the back of the net in half one. Norwalk again came out strong in the second half as VanVelzen scored. Her shot ricocheted off a Knoxville defender into the goal in the second minute. Schreck scored her 12 th goal of the year in the 56 th minute on a rip from 25 yards. VanVelzen scored the final goal in the 75 th minute as she contin- ues to get open around the goal mouth for put-backs as Schreck hit another blast that hit the post first. The defense completely shut out Knoxville in the second half allowing no shots. The defense consists of seniors Kristi Rogers and Hannah Urlis and Megan Chase, juniors Jami Feder, Kelby Arnold and Meg Cox and sophomore Kalie Palmer with fellow sophomore Stephanie Smiley in the goal. Norwalk will compete in their own eight-team tournament Saturday, May 15 at Norwalk-McAninch Sports Complex.
