Eagle Valley High School students who participated in the recent Spelling Bee were: Michelle Holt, the winner; Kirk Hayes, Gabrielle Godding and Tony Winkler. Michelle will be going on to a regional competition.


The Eagle Valley Boy Scouts took first place for sled design in the Klondike Derby and they tied for second place in the sled race. Pictured are Greg Roggenkamp, Tom Holt, Steven Winkler, Lance Dehn, Mark Yates, Kevin Johnson, Brian Yates and Scout Master Wayne Yates. Besides pulling the sled with the leader in it, the boys had other activities to do during the day. The sled was put together with a lashing. The boys spent many hours lashing, using knot-tying skills they had learned.

He came back through the wrestle backs to be able to compete on Saturday, the final day of the tournament.
