  • Thanks to all students who attended last week’s volleyball game! Ticket sales and penny wars raised over $400 for Blessings in a Backpack!! Thank you also to Team X and Team USA who played a great game...each won a set so a final winner is still undetermined!

  • Athlete of the Month: Nolan Weisdorfer was nominated by Coach Weisdorfer for track. He has only lost one race this year, which was by 1 second in the 800m run. He has remained undefeated in the 1600m run, and  has broken the often very difficult and elusive 5:00 min barrier running 4:59. Nolan won the Greater Flint Championship Meet in the 1600m run, beating the next competitor by 18 seconds or a full 100-meter straight away. He led off the 4 x 800m team, which won that event, at the Greater Flint Championships. At nearly the end of the Greater Flint Meet, Nolan once again went to the well and started off the 4 x 400m relay in a split of 61.11, helping his team earn 5th place honors.  Nolan’s academic record, while at HMS, has been exemplary. Nolan can often be seen, at the dinner table, doing his homework after a meet, game or practice. Nolan balances his time between Track, Cage-Basketball and a College Prep academic schedule with unmatched discipline and diligence. Nolan understands that STUDENT comes before athlete.

  • STAND Members: No meeting on Friday

  • Thank you to the 3D art classes who made a bowl for the art show this year. The Empty Bowls event at the art show raised $3075! All of that money goes towards Blessings in a Backpack for Holly kids!

  • The Holly Bronchos 7/8th Grade Softball team traveled to Davison, MI to take on the Davison Cardinals yesterday.  Game 1 turned into a pitching duel as Madelyn Hoover took to the mound for the second time this year.  She kept the game close with a total of five strikeouts in 4 innings and with help from good defense by Bryanna Teague and Riley Nichols, the team battled to the end.  However the Bronchos bats were quiet until the 4th inning when Isabella Lockitski hit a triple into left center.  Unfortunately, this was not enough, as the Bronchos lost 1-7.  The second game even proved harder as the Davison Cardinals continued to hit the ball.  The Holly Bronchos put up a good fight but were unable to beat the Cardinals in the second game.  Keep up the hard work girls and GO BRONCHOS!!!

  • Holly middle school baseball lost 8-0 and tied 1-1 at yesterday’s double header with Davison middle school last night. For both games, Holly pitchers (Nolan Jenkinson, Mason Yoder, Anthony Brossett, and Jeffery Preston) combined to only allow 2 total earned runs over both games.  Strong defensive games were put in by Andrew Simmons, Rolondo Cantu, Brian James, Sebastian Bemman, and Nathan Tyszkowski, who allowed only 1 earned run after a sloppy first 2 innings of game one.  Coach Hignite is proud of the effort of the whole team battling through injuries and tough pitching to hold down a very strong team.  Great work Gentlemen!

  • The STAND group would like to bring you information this week about the impact that alcohol and alcohol related problems have on young people, their friends, families and communities. 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.

  • The baseball team lost both games of a double header at Fenton last night, by the scores of 5-3, and 8-1.  The Bronchos were leading in game one by Nolan Jenkinson and Brendan Parks both going 1 for 2, with a double each, and Mason Yoder with an RBI.  A strong pitching performance in the first game resulted in the Bronchos only giving up 2 earned runs, with Rolondo Cantu making several plays in left field.  Game 2 was a bit tougher, but again the Bronchos were led offensively by Yoder and Jenkinson, each collecting hits.  Fine defensive work was also put in by Sebastian Bemman, Jeffrey Preston, and Brendan James with a fine sliding catch in foul territory.  The next game is Friday at Karl Richter Campus versus Lapeer.

  • Last night, the Holly Bronchos 7/8th Grade Softball Team traveled to Fenton, MI to play a doubleheader against their arch rivals, the Fenton Tigers.  Some great pitching by Malloree McNamara, Grace Fromm and Kasidy Charboneau along with fielding from Riley Nichols kept the games close.  Every player showed how hard work at practice pays off by having great plate appearances and hitting the ball.  The team was lead by Isabella Lockitski with 2 singles and by Danielle Lannon who had a stand up triple to left field.  Danielle Lannon also made her game debut at catcher in the second game doing a great job.  Unfortunately, the Fenton Tigers hitting was more than the Bronchos could handle taking both games.  Keep up the good work girls and GO BRONCHOS!!!

  • Although basketball season is over, Coach Gillespie had one more athlete to recognize. Jacob Welch was one of the top 8th grade boy’s basketball players this season. As a point guard he assumed the role of team leader on the court. Jacob was consistently among the team’s top scorers and rebounders each game. In addition, the team could always rely on Jacob when they needed someone to make a play. Jacob does a good job of maintaining his grades and behavior as a classroom leader as well.

He did a great job and also had many assists. Other notable scorers were Bryce Goings with 6pts, Nathan Peterson with 6pts and Davante Harsten with 7pts.

Coming from a family with a long and storied legacy of aquatics, Kade has quickly become one of our most versatile swimmers, moving from a beginner to being solid in all events, most notably the freestyle sprint events and the 50-meter backstroke. Kade also learned the butterfly from scratch and will be clearly be a leader in the individual medley event in the future. Usually a quiet, get-to-work kind of swimmer, occasionally his humor pops out unexpectedly and brightens up the team.

  • 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.

  • The 7th grade basketball team lost to Clio 34 to 57. The team continues to improve. They worked hard and hustled the entire game and never quit.

  • 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”

  • 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.

  • Spirit Week Results: Here are yesterday’s results for Sports team day: 6th grade & 7th grade tied! Both showed a lot of spirit with 47% participation! Once again, 8th grade is in last place with 40% participation.  Total Wins: 6th=3, 7th=1, 8th=0 There are 2 more wins up for grabs...Let’s make Friday’s participation worth double!!
  • Why Try Classes are Working Hard at Recycling! Please help them by emptying water/juice out of your water bottles. Keeping food out of the recycling bins (we don’t want to touch your ½ eaten muffin). Emptying the chips from the bags. Putting ONLY paper in the paper bin. (if too much plastic goes into the paper bin, the recycling company may drop us!) Thank you for keeping your School Clean and our environment Green!
  • 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.
