  • The 8th Grade Boys Basketball Team competed against a tough one-loss Grand Blanc East team yesterday.  Holly’s defensive intensity kept them in the game, but their offense just could not put up enough points leading to a 39-25 defeat.  Great effort team. The Bronchos will look to get back into the win column next Wednesday when they host the Davison Cardinals.

  • The Holly 7th grade basketball team had a tough loss against Grand Blanc East with a score of 66 to 31. Carlos Solis led the team with 9 points followed closely by Connor Mallett with 7 points. Our player of the game was an unsung hero. Joe Smith was able to draw 4 fouls in just four minutes in the 2nd quarter while scoring 4 points too.

  • The Holly Middle School Swim Team travelled to Grand Blanc Middle School last night for its last away dual meet of the season. Although Holly lost to the exceptionally talented Grand Blanc team 137-27, several Holly swimmers had their best outings of the season. Captain Lauren Costigan set a season and school record in the 100-yard IM with a time of 1:24.31, and also exactly tied her season and school record in the 50-yard breaststroke at 40.74. Brianna Butler scored personal bests in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle, and then beat those personal records a second time later in the meet. Brianna was our first four-event-personal-record swimmer this season. Also recording personal bests were Alex Bladzik (2), Josh Boman, Lauren Costigan (2), Brenna Gross, Alex Hepner, Drew Hignite (2), Kade Kivari, Trinity Klempp, Brighton Layman (2), Selena Quertermous (2), Ryleigh Rose, Calvin Senton (2), Isabel Varela, Arabella Wichtman, and Allan Wollesen. Holly’s final home meet of the season is next Tuesday at 4 p.m. against the Brandon Blackhawks. It’s 8th Grade Senior night, so everyone is invited to send off our 8th graders at their final home middle school meet.

  • The Holly 7th grade basketball team lost a tough, hard fought against its arch rival Fenton 20 to 29. Holly was within 5 points mid-way thru the 3rd quarter and played tough defense in the second half limiting Fenton to just 10 points for the entire 3rd and 4th quarter combined. However, the shots just didn't seem to not fall for Bronchos when they needed them the most. Carlos Solis was our player of the game with 7 points and 3 rebounds.

  • The 8th Grade Boys Basketball Team had an exciting battle to the finish against our rival, the Fenton Tigers.  The back and forth game was close throughout, and remained tied with 4 minutes left to play.  The Bronchos executed well, but unfortunately just could not get their shots to fall down the stretch, leading to a 31-26 defeat.  Great effort team, keep working hard. Holly hosts Kearsley on Monday.

When asked on why leadership is important to her, she said it allows her to “stand up, be strong, and have a voice.” Great words to live by!

  • This week the STAND group would like you to join them in celebrating Red Ribbon Week. Did you know that key areas of the brain are still under construction during your teen years and are very sensitive to the toxic effects of alcohol? This is why the legal drinking age is 21 years old. Alcohol is the number 1 killer of youth today, whether by car crashes, alcohol poisoning or crimes involving alcohol. Even a small amount of alcohol slows down the ability to think clear and make decisions. Alcohol can also cause people to feel more daring than usual and take dangerous risks. Alcohol can steal your dreams, your money and your youth. Why would anyone want to throw so much away-you are too valuable? “YOLO You Only Live Once, stay alcohol free”

  • Last night, the HMS soccer team dropped a hard fought match to Stockwell Academy 4-1.  Our offense was working hard all game but couldn't solve their keepers outside of a Matt Wilson goal with the assist going to Sean Arens.  Drew Hignite turned in a fine performance in net and Nick Gramer, Amber McDowell, and Catie Bezemek holding off the Star's high scoring offense.  The loss puts our record at 3-5-0 and we finish the season off on Thursday travelling to Wixom to play Sarah Banks MS

  • Girls Basketball: Congrats to the 8th grade team on their 29-40 victory against Davison! Awesome job to Lauren Burke- 6 points, Emaya Parson-2 points, Madelyn Hoover-2 points, and Emma Tooley-30 points!!
  • The 8th grade Football team showed HUGE heart in a 31-31 game against Davison. Holly Broncho defense wrapped up the 2nd quarter with a score of 25-0 Davison, going into halftime. Bronchos returned to the 3rd quarter strong with Ryan Morgan throwing a touchdown pass to Logan Spencer. Ryan and Logan were on fire, throwing two more touchdowns. Late in the game, the boys fought hard to stop the Davison offense. The offensive line stayed strong with Tyler Jackson blocking as Landon Dzendzel scored a rushing touchdown in the 4th quarter. Scotty "The Hammer" Herrmann sacked the quarterback causing a fumble which was recovered by Dominik Measel with under a minute left in the game. Landon Dzendzel made Davison pay for the turnover when he caught Ryan Morgan’s pass and ran a touchdown to tie the game. It was an amazing comeback and we are very proud of this team for their hard work.
  • Holly Broncho's 7th grade football team suffered a loss to Davison.  The team fought hard in the second half. Conner Mallett had another amazing defensive game getting after the quarterback and causing some turnovers. Logan Springer snagged the teams first interception of the season. Offensively, the team came together when it could have fallen apart after some injuries. The team helped running back Jacob Gonzalez get in the end zone for a touchdown for the second time this season.
  • In an action packed match last night, the soccer team travelled to Walnut Creek MS and came home with a 4-3 victory.  Sean Arens scored on a penalty kick, before Kayla Gulliver punched in a goal, putting us on top 2-1 at the half.  With 5 minutes to play in the half, Catie Bezemek blocked a long range cross and left the match due to injury. In the second half, Sean Arens picked up his second goal of the night with a great pass coming from Rensle Campbell.  He then completed his hat trick scoring off of a corner kick. Connor Frost, Nick Gramer, and Richard Pitman anchored the defense, while the hustle and grit of the entire squad allowed us to improve our record to 3-4 on the year. The Bronchos will close out the season next week with matches against Stockwell Academy and Sarah Banks MS.

  • HMS Soccer: The soccer team dropped a tough match against Holly Academy last night losing on a last minute goal, 2-1.  While their record now stands at 0-4-0, it was a fantastic match by the entire team. Kayce Caldwell scored her second of the season off of a beautiful cross from Sean Arens to put us up 1-0.  Drew Hignite saved a penalty shot to keep us in the lead, but the wet conditions caused the ball to squirt in for their first goal and change directions on their last goal. Outstanding defense was turned in by Connor Frost, Amber McDowell, Nick Gramer, Richard Pitman, and Catie Bezemek which shut down the Huskies over and again.  It was a great game even with the constant rain falling.The Bronchos move on to Shepherd of the Lakes next week.

  • The 7th grade football team suffered a tough loss to Brandon 36-6.  The team continued to show improvements throughout the game.  The Offensive Line came up big in the second half with 4 long drives that came up just short of the goal line. Jacob Gonzales then scored our first TD of the season with 8 seconds remaining on the clock. Connor Mallet & Gabe Dominguez both had excellent games, stopping the run in the backfield with Gabe snagging up a key fumble recovery which started our scoring drive.  Great game Bronchos!  Keep up the good work!
  • The 8th grade football team had a defensive battle which ended in a loss to Brandon 6-0. Logan Dzendzel, Kolten Steele, and Weston Syjud led the Defensive front. Kolten ran an 85 yard kick return into the end zone but unfortunately it was called back due to a flag on the play. Landon Dzendzel, Kolten Steele, and Weston Syjud kept Brandon on their toes with their rushing attack. The whole Broncho defense played an exceptional game. Jeffrey Preston had a nice catch late in the 4th quarter but unfortunately it was not enough to push the Bronchos ahead.

Our top three runners in the race were Kiyone Cabatingan (2nd place), Ella Bilbia (1st place), and Alison Honnila (3rd place). Great job!!

  • The softball team won both their games Wednesday against Grand Blanc East.  In the first game, Jazlyn Carroll and Gracie Ortiz both hit triples to lead the high-scoring offense to a 15-9 victory.  Madelyn Hoover drove in 3 runs and scored 2.  In the second game, the Bronchos were undermanned with only eight players.  Megan Sisson stepped up and pitched a 4-inning no-hit shutout in the 17-0 mercy, facing only 12 batters.  She walked the first batter, who was later gunned down attempting to steal 2nd base by catcher Maika Hogarth.  Megan then retired the next 11 batters.  Megan also contributed on the offensive side going 4 for 4 with a double and triple, 5 RBIs and 4 runs.  Madelyn Hoover knocked in 3 more runs and scored 3 more herself in the second game.  Joelle Widdis and Kasidy Charbonneau contributed 2 hits apiece for the potent offense.  The Bronchos have now won 3 in a row and 4 of their last 5 games.

  • Alcohol Awareness Week: Did you know that key areas of the brain are still under construction during your teen years through age 25 and are very sensitive to the toxic effects of alcohol? Even small amounts of alcohol slow down the ability to think clearly and make decisions. Alcohol can also cause people to feel more daring then usual and take dangerous risks. In large amounts, alcohol slows down areas of the brain and nervous system, causes dizziness, decreases coordination and reaction time, makes it harder to speak, walk and stay awake. This is why the legal drinking age is 21years old.
