Logger Soccer Finishes State Playoff Run.

A shout-out and congratulations to the Logger Soccer team. They demonstrated everything about The Ony Way:  Vision, Passion, Pride, Grit, and Service. The Team finished 4th in the Central 2B league with a 6 -3 record, and then proceeded to make a tournament run for the ages. They finished 14-6-1 overall and secured 4th place in the State Tournament. The Loggers lost a tough game to the eventual State Champions, the Davenport Gorillas, and then dropped another 1-0 loss to their league rivals - Adna in the 3rd/4th place game.  

We are very proud of these players, and the future looks very positive as many of the them return next year. We will miss the seniors as they capped off a remarkable career: Autumn Russ, Andrea Hallaway, Hannah Cameron, Becca Griel, and Angel Wetherbee (manager).

Grandparent Luncheon a Tasty Success.
Grandparents Luncheon
The Grandparent luncheon was well attended, with many grandparents in attendance dinning with their grandchildren. Smiles and conversation dominated the dinning hall.

Grandparents Luncheon
A big thank-you to Jerry Carlson and the entire Food Services Staff for putting the Grandparent Luncheon event together. The cafeteria was busy with people of all ages enjoying a Thanksgiving meal.

Grandparents Luncheon
Thanks also to the para-educators and teachers whose patience was unwavering as we had a room full of K-5 students and their guests. You all did a fantastic job of being organized, making adjustments on the fly and making this a great experience for our guests.

Sabrina Stanley Gives Lecture at OHS.
Sabrina Stanley
Sabrina Stanley, (Ony alum 2008), visited Onalaska on November 7, as a guest speaker to OHS students. Sabrina's story is about grit, passion, and vision; three components of "The ONY Way!"

Sabrina Stanley
Sabrina is a professional ultra-runner who specializes in 100-mile mountain races. At 25 Sabrina attempted her first 100-mile trail race, failing in epic fashion at mile 87. After this failure she promised herself, she would finish every race she started no matter what, a rarity in the sport of ultra-running. Sabrina also decided that she was going to come back to the very race that defeated her and finish it. In 2018 Sabrina was ranked 8th best American ultra-runner. With her 2019 race season she is hoping to be top 5.

Sabrina Stanley
Currently Sabrina has won the last ten ultra-races she started. Her most recent win was at Grand Raid Reunion, the largest 100-mile race in the world, where she became the first American winner (male or female) in the races 27-year history. 

Thanks for coming back to Ony, Sabrina. You are a great example of “The ONY Way!”
