One of our goals as a system in Bridgeport is to create students who believe that anyone is capable of reaching the height of their chosen activity. The month of February has proven to be a time when this is more evident that ever. Consider just a few of the accomplishments this month so far and keep in mind that at the time of this writing, we will have another week to go where even more great things could happen!
**Jack Linders received his award at the state wrestling meet honoring him as an NSAA Believer and Achiever. He is the second student in two years to earn this honor.
**7 students earned their way to compete at the state wrestling tournament. 3 of those wrestlers brought home a state medal. Congrats to Marce Vasquez - 2nd place, Casey Benavides - 3rd place, & Trevor Widener - 5th
**Emily Baxter was selected as one of 15,000 nationwide National Merit Finalists. She will find out in the coming months if she has earned a National Merit Scholarship worth up to $2500
**Bridgeport has nominated 5 students to be considered for the Omaha World Herald Academic Team. These 5 students were nominated on the basis of their academic achievements, ACT scores, and extracurricular contributions. Those students are: Sarah Kesterson, Emily Baxter, Jack Linders, Kaitlyn Nein, and Brittney Newkirk
**The Speech team has strung together a storybook season winning meet championships left and right. Their countless hours of hard work is paying off in the form of individual and team awards.
**At the time of this writing, our girls basketball is set to play in the district championship game and looking to earn their way to the state tournament.
As you can see, great things are happening at BHS and we couldn’t more proud of our students.
