    Ord Blanks Neumann, Advances to State Final


    The coldest night of the season did not do much to cool off a red-hot Chanticleer football team on Friday. As fans braced against a wind chill that neared zero degrees at kickoff, the Ord High football team pummeled a perennial C-1 power to earn a chance at the school’s first football hardware since 1955.

    The Chants first drive was short and sweet, four plays capped by a nine-yard touchdown run by senior running back Dalton Hurlburt. The rest of the first quarter was scoreless, but early in the second the Chants scored on a reverse pass from senior receiver Solomon Campise to sophomore receiver Quinton Ries. Senior quarterback Jesse Ulrich added a 12-yard rushing touchdown late in the second to give Ord a 21-0 lead. The Chanticleer defense was in the spotlight once again this week, but one play stood above the rest. After a hook-and-lateral play and a personal foul by the Chants, Neumann threatened to steal the momentum right before half with the ball on the six-yard line, but junior corner Riley Warner came up with his second big defensive play in two weeks when he picked off a pass in the endzone to keep the slate clean for the Chants. In the second half Ord’s defense controlled the Neumann attack while the Chants added three more scores, rushing touchdowns by Jesse Ulrich and Dalton Hurlburt and a field goal by sophomore kicker Kelen Meyer to give Ord a 37-0 lead. With the Cavaliers threatening again late in the fourth quarter, sophomore Zach Smith got a sack for a huge loss. After a botched snap on the next play, the Chants had successfully completed the shutout.

    Jesse Ulrich had an amazing offensive day for the second straight week, putting up 177 yards on the ground and 93 through the air. The Chanticleer defense put their stamp on yet another matchup by holding Neumann to 184 yards of total offense and recording three takeaways, two interceptions by Riley Warner and an interception by Solomon Campise, in the shutout. The Chants will take on Aurora at Memorial Stadium on Tuesday November 20 at 2:45 p.m.

    Ord One-Act begins 2018 Season


    One-Act season has begun at Ord High School as the Chanticleers debuted their play “Clue: On Stage”. The show is a comedy based on the screenplay by Johnathan Lynn, which was based off of the Paramount Pictures motion picture (’95) as well as the famous Hasbro board game. It is a fun, action-packed mystery as the classic “characters” of Professor Plum (Cooper Sheets), Ms. Scarlet (Nia McClure), Mr. Green (Trevor Vancura), Mrs. Peacock (Richele Masin), Colonel Mustard (Aaron White), and Mrs. White (Katie Fischer) all arrive at the mysterious Boddy Manor owned by Mr. Boddy (Cooper Tonniges) and meet their unique hosts: Wadsworth the Butler (Ethan Ries), Yvette the Maid (Abby Hysell), and the Cook (Kora Severance). As visitors continue to arrive and end up dead, the body count rises as the guests attempt to identify who the murderer is. There are 62 students 9-12th grade involved in One-Act this season at Ord. Captains for 2018 are Seniors: Lydia Hill, Shay Holm, Richele Masin, Kora Severance; and Juniors: Reilly Peetz, Cooper Sheets. The team is coached by Ben Lansman, Brian Wamberg, Karlee Severance, and Ashley Trampe.

    The Chants opened their season by traveling to Loup City Friday, November 2, where they received 4th place overall in the Parade of Plays. Since they went over the 30 minute time limit they were lowered one rank each by judges, and without this penalty, they would have placed 2nd overall. “I actually thought it was one of the best performances we’ve all had all year so far despite being overtime” said Coach Ben Lansman. “To travel for the first time, adjust to new set pieces and a stage that is far smaller than our own shows a lot of maturity and poise at this point in the year. There was some great competition in our bracket today including several teams we will have in our district. Congrats to Cozad on their victory – it was well deserved. But I was very proud of our kids overall, especially since they had a football playoff game later that day and everyone’s minds were basically spinning all day long.” Recognized for outstanding acting were: Ethan Ries, Aaron White, Katie Fischer, Richele Masin, Trevor Vancura, Nia McClure, and Cooper Tonniges.

    The following Monday, Ord hosted the 21st annual Chanticleer Drama Festival where 11 other schools attended to perform and receive a critique. The Ord Festival is different than others as we do not have schools compete against one another, they simply get a chance to practice performing and receiving feedback from judges to better prepare for districts. “It takes a lot of work to host a festival, especially when we continue to have school in session so I have to truly thank the entire staff at OHS for helping to pull this off” said Lansman. “Without everyone’s hard work, this simply does not happen successfully. I owe my assistants Brian Wamberg, Karlee Severance, and Ashley Trampe a huge thank you for helping us through this day.” Recognized for outstanding acting at the festival: Abby Hysell, Kora Severance, Katie Fischer, Trevor Vancura, Nia McClure, Cooper Sheets, Cooper Tonniges, Reilly Peetz, Lydia Hill, Vickie Ference, Ethan Ries-Outstanding Male Actor, and Richele Masin-Outstanding Female Actress.

    On Sunday, November 11 the One-Act group hosted their annual Dinner Theater, which was catered by Roy’s Place. The show was a complete success with over 220 tickets being sold and an additional 40 attending the show only. Also on the schedule was senior recognition and parent’s night in which all 15 seniors were recognized for their achievements and years of involvement. “We have a great senior class again this year and I could not be more proud of their leadership and dedication. It literally takes a village to accomplish success in this business, and I’m proud of each and every one of them.” The students always help serve the dinner for the event in costume, then follow up with their performance.

    The Chanticleers next compete Saturday, Nov. 17 at Minden and Monday, Nov. 19 at Gibbon for the LouPlatte Conference Tournament. There will be a community performance at the high school on Monday, Nov. 26 at 7pm open to the public with no admission charge. We would love to see you there!

  • Cross Country Runners Have Good Day at State Meet


    Morgan Ritz and Colton Rowse represented the Chanticleer Cross Country teams this past Friday at the state cross country meet in Kearney.  Both runners had a solid race but came up short of earning a medal from the state meet. “Both Morgan and Colton ran good solid races but we just could not move up into the medal positions”, Coach Derry Trampe commented.  “I was pleased with their efforts because I felt that both of them really gave a great effort in the meet. I am disappointed for them because they both felt like they could bring home a medal. However, it was not from a lack of effort that they didn’t.  I am very proud of what these two, as well as the rest of our team, was able to accomplish this year.”


    Morgan started the day for the Chants with a 40th place finish in the field of 97 runners.  Ritz finished the 5,000-meter race in a time of 22:27.2 to record her best time on the state meet course.  “Morgan had a much better season this year than she did last year and I was glad to see her run her best time on this course”, Trampe said.  “Hopefully, we can get her a little stronger next season and get her nagging hip injury to clear up over the winter. She is a tough runner and I would like to see her earn a medal before she is done.”  Morgan came through the first mile in 41st place and moved up and back throughout the rest of the race.  She ran a steady race and really competed well with the girls around her.  


    Colton got out strong in his race as he was in 26th place at the first mile and he was in good position about a mile and a half into the race.  However, the hip injury he has been trying to work through caught up to him before he was able to get to the two mile and then the rest of the race was just getting to the finish line.  “I feel really bad for Colton because he is such a talented runner”, Coach Trampe stated. “He is a tough competitor but sometimes your body can only do so much. We need to get him healed up through the winter and preferably before the start of wrestling season.  He is a good kid and a very hard working young man.” By the 2-mile point Rowse had dropped back to 40th place and then finished the 5,000-meter race in 42nd place in a time of 18:42.2.  There were a total of 99 runners in the race at the state meet.  Rowse was fairly consistent in his last two miles but he just could not generate any speed in the last half of the race.


    In the Class C Girls team race Holdrege won the team title with 50 points while Fort Calhoun was second with 62 points.  Rounding out the top 10 were Columbus Scotus (66), Lincoln Christian (79), Boone Central/Newman Grove (81), Conestoga (98), Kearney Catholic (112), Mitchell (125), Ogallala (137), and Milford (139).  In the Class C Boys team race Sidney won the team title with 53 points while Holdrege was a close second with 58 points. Rounding out the top 10 were Lincoln Christian (81), Mitchell (95), Douglas County West (97), Columbus Scotus (104), Auburn (117), Wahoo (119), Milford (124), and Boone Central/Newman Grove (127).
