Another year is coming to a close, and this one was a good one. The year got started with BOTC, and the seniors took home the victory for the second year in a row. Fall sports had very good seasons, and winter sports were even better. Boys basketball made it to the Conference championship but lost to Mankato East. Mankato East ended up losing in the state championship to Totino Grace. Boys Hockey made a very good run and ended up making it to state, playing at the Xcel Energy Center.

Senior Colton Bensen said, “It was a very successful season, but we fell just a little short.” Colton Bensen had a very successful high school career at New Ulm. He broke some records and seemed to have a big part in every game he played.

Over the year we had lots of dress-up days and fun weeks. FFA week we had lots of fun days and events like the tractor contest, and a search for 5 buttons around the school. If you found the button you would get a prize. We also had dress-up days for Halloween, and even right before Christmas break.┬áSenior Kellen Bode said, “It was fun while it lasted, but I am ready to move on with life and try new things.”

Coming to the end of the year we get started with spring sports. Softball is having a really good year, being number 2 in the state and currently undefeated. Prom happened on April 27, and lots of people were having fun and driving some really nice vehicles. The dance this year was at the Franklin, and it was a lot more spacious. After the dance was the post-prom party, and this year we had a mechanical bull. Senior Kyle Helget said, “Prom this year seemed to be more fun than past years. I think it’s because the dance was in a new environment, and there were more options for the prom party.” Even Officer Achman was having fun on the mechanical bull. There are currently only a few days left of this year, and all the seniors are embracing every moment they have left.
