    Happy Homecoming as Chant Football Romps Over Bison


    Ord, NE- Homecoming Week at Ord High School culminated with a clash of ranked opponents on the gridiron. Central City, ranked number six and number eight in the Omaha World- Herald and Lincoln Journal Star, respectively, faced the Chanticleers, ranked number 10 in both polls, in a highly anticipated match up. The tension did not last long as the Chants marched on their first drive with a 14-yard run by Dalton Hurlburt, a key third and nine pass completion from Jesse Ulrich to Solomon Campise, and a second connection between the dynamic quarterback wide out duo for 39 yards and a touchdown. The Chants continued with that early momentum scoring the first 23 points of the contest. For the rest of the night, Ord dominated the trenches on both sides of the ball accumulating 301 yards on the ground and holding the Bison to a mere 55 rush yards. A field goal by Kelen Meyer along with two rushing touchdowns by Jesse Ulrich and rushing touchdowns by Dalton Hurlburt, Tommy Stevens, and Garret Kluthe rounded out the scoring for the Chants in a game that, after the opening scores by the Chants, was only as close as 23-8. That dominating performance for the Chants gave fans an opportunity to get a glimpse of the future as sophomore quarterback Zach Smith gained 60 yards on five rush attempts and junior wide out Austin Trejo picked up 30 yards on his one carry. The final 44-14 score bodes well for the Chants as they move ahead this season, having thoroughly defeated a ranked opponent for the second time this season. The Chanticleers continue their season next Friday in Hastings as they kick off at 7 p.m. against Adams Central.

    FFA Edge Conference

    On August 29th, the Ord FFA Chapter held EDGE conference at the Ord High School. This conference was for FFA officers, Jr. high members, and freshmen. EDGE was a fun time to listen to our state officers and to learn how to be more involved with FFA. This helped our officers work better as a team and we made lots of new ideas for our chapter also! This was a great opportunity for 7th-9th graders to learn about leadership skills and look at their future goals.

  • Boys Finish 7th and Girls 3rd at Central City Invite

    Junior High Boys Finish Ninth


    The Ord High School cross country teams continued to show a lot of improvement this past week at the Central City Invitational.  On a hot and windy day, the Chant runners turned in some of their best performances of not only the year but of their careers. “Our kids had a very good day at Central City”, Coach Derry Trampe stated.  “We had some of our best times ever on a day that provided tough conditions for the runners. We looked really strong in both races even after having a tough week of practice. I am really excited about what this group will accomplish by the end of the season.”  In the team race for the boys the Chanticleers finished 7th in the 13-team field.  The Chants scored 118 points to finish just behind 6th place Nebraska Christian (111).  Aurora and Lexington tied for the team championship with 25 points and Aurora was awarded the team title by virtue of the 5th runner tie-breaker.  Schuyler finished third with 47 points while GI Northwest was fourth with 87 points.  Rounding out the team scoring were: St. Paul (102), Madison (136), Central City (171), Fullerton (174), Twin River (231), and Grand Island CC and Central Valley did not field enough runners to score in the team race.


    The girls’ team had one of their best efforts of the season as they finished 3rd in the 13-team field with a total of 74 points.  Lexington won the meet with 19 points while Aurora was second with 41 points. Rounding out the team scoring were:  GI Northwest (86), Nebraska Christian (106), Schuyler (110), St. Paul (110), Grand Island CC (134), Central City (139), Fullerton (153), and Central Valley, Madison, and Twin River did not field enough runners to score as a team.


    Kloe Severance and Morgan led the way for the Chanticleer girls as they both earned medals by finishing 2nd and 5th respectively.  Severance completed the 5,000-meter course in a time of 20:35 while Ritz cruised through the course in 21:36.  Both marks were career best marks for the runners. “Kloe and Morgan had great races on a day that was pretty tough for runners”, Coach Trampe said.  “They both looked really strong throughout the race and really finished the last mile of the race strong. I am really pleased with how we competed.” Also scoring for the Chants were Leah Westberg and Richele Masin.  Leah finished 36th in a time of 24:52 while Richele was 46th in a time of 26:24.  “Leah is getting better each time she runs a meet”, Trampe stated.  “She is new to the sport and is learning as she goes but she is a very good competitor.  Richele is a consistent performer and she had another good race for us again this week. I am really proud of the way she has developed over the last two years.”  The lone pusher for the Chants this week was Hannah Masin. Hannah finished 51st in the field of 81 runners in a time of 27:11.  “Hannah just keeps surprising me every week with her competitiveness and her improvement”, the coach noted.  “She has been a pleasant surprise this year and I am really happy for her because she has worked hard to be a competitive runner.”  Macy Warner was unable to finish the race this week due to an injury she incurred in practice earlier in the week. Macy was in 12th place at the mile mark but had to drop out at the halfway point of the race.  “I felt bad for Macy because she was really running a good race”, Trampe said. “I didn’t know that she was hurt going into the race but she is a tough runner and gave it all she had.  That is what all of our kids do each week and I am proud of their toughness and competitive nature.”


    Colton Rowse continued his outstanding season as he finished 4th to earn a medal in a very strong field of runners and posted one of his best times of his career.  Rowse covered the 5,000-meter course in a time of 17:33. “Colton has been having a great season this year”, Coach Trampe commented.  “He continues to run with the top runners in the state and really looks to have a good chance to medal at the state meet again this year.  He has put up great times despite battling a sore hip. We may need to rest him a little and let him heal so we have him available for the end of the season.”  Also scoring for the Chants were Reese Davenport, Treaven Scheideler, and Trevor Vancura. Davenport finished 32nd in 19:29 while Scheideler was 52nd in 20:19 and Vancura was 78th in 21:25.  “Our second, third, and fourth runners are closing the gap on each other and on Colton and that is what we need to do to be successful as a team”, Trampe noted.  “I am really pleased with Reese and his consistency all season and I am very happy with how much improvement Treaven has made in the last couple of weeks. Trevor had his best race of the season and he is working through shin splints.  These guys are just good solid competitors.” Pushers for the Chants this week were Bronson Blair and Brody Welniak. Blair finished in 83rd place in a time of 21:33 while Welniak was 94th in 22:02.  “Bronson was a little off his best race of the season and we need to have him keep pace with Treaven each week.  Brody showed a lot of improvement from the first meet and we need to keep him on course to keep working in practice so he continues to improve”, Trampe said.  Also competing for the team was Quintin Behnk. Quintin finished 107th in the field of 156 runners in a time of 22:47.  “Quintin was almost a minute and a half faster than the last time he ran a 5,000-meter race”, Trampe said.  “I am pleased with the progress he is making both in practice and in meets. It has been nice to see him step it up as the season has progressed.”


    Piper Whited and Hayden Kluthe both brought home medals from the junior high race.  Piper was able to win the sprint to the finish line to earn the 15th place medal in the girls’ race while Kluthe brought home a 4th place medal in the boys’ race.  Whited’s time over the 3,000-meter course was 12:45.  Hayden finished in a time of 11:08. There were 107 competitors in the girls’ race and 132 in the boys.  Gage Sintek finished 28th in a time of 12:07 while Ashton Wadas finished 56th in 12:57 and Braden Bruha was 62nd in 13:09 to round out the scoring runners for the junior high race.  Cainan Rogers finished in 114th place in a time of 15:49.  As a team the junior high boys finished 9th with 119 points in the field of 11 scoring teams.

    Service Learning Day A Success

    Ord Jr.-Sr high school had its annual service learning day on September 11th. The day provides a chance for students to get out into the community and give back. Students were given the chance to take part in different projects around the community. The projects this year included highway clean up, town trash pickup, projects around the school and bus barn, Heartland Youth Ranch, Ord Library, painting at the fairgrounds, painting the bleachers and baseball shed at Bussell Park, general cleaning up at Bussell Park, and Veteran Grounds. The day had a little more meaning this year because it took place on September 11th. The day also was added to part of the homecoming week festivities for the school which many students thought brought an extra element of fun for the whole week.  Mr. Gates opened the day talking about service and how on September 11th this was the chance for the students to give back to the community which supports them in their many endeavors at school. Mr. Gates said “It was nice to tie this activity with September 11th, it’s a natural fit for students to give back and serve others.” Gates added “The students really enjoy this day and the chance to work on some different projects.” The students completed and worked on the projects for about two hours. Though many of them were dirty, or covered in paint the day was a success for Ord Jr-Sr.High School. Ord superintendent was able to see the service learning day for the first time. Dr. Nebesniak said “Witnessing the Service Learning Day for the first time was quite an experience.  I was overwhelmed with the willingness of our students and staff to seek out needs in our community an put forth such a strong effort to serve. As the new Superintendent, seeing the vast ways our students served the community in this capacity instilled such a sense of pride in not only our school, but the greater community as a whole” The school improvement committee would like to thank all the organizations and individuals that helped with service learning day or helped gather supplies because without their willingness to take part, this experience would not be possible for our students.”
