Last day of the month of February and it’s Friday!! Hopefully you’ve passed out the High 5’s today!!
In this edition of “The High 5” we give our first High 5 out to a young man who has gained some attention across our state and that is O’Neill Eagle Wrestler Tim Lechtenberg! And Tim is getting his second High 5 in this blog. This time though we give him the High 5 for his effort to raise money in the battle against pediatric brain cancer. Earlier this year Tim came up with the idea to raise money to help a young O’Neill boy, Aidan Spangler, who has been battling brain cancer. “Pins For Aidan” is what Tim came up with and went around town and asked for pledges for each pin that an O’Neill Eagle Wrestler makes during the season. So far over $2200 has been raised and this weekend will be the final matches of the year so hopefully even more will be raised! High 5 Tim!!

Our next High 5’s go to O’Neill Wrestlers also!! Joseph Gillham, Blake Walters and David Fox! These three wrestlers went the distance during the 3-days of the State Wrestling Tournament and came out with the Gold Medals around their neck! If you were there, or listened to reports, this tournament is the best of the best and to come away with no losses during the 3 days is no easy feat. High 5 Joseph, Blake & David!!! You guys deserve it!!
Our final High 5 today goes out to all the kids from schools in North Central Nebraska that participated in the Sing Around Nebraska event last Saturday at Wheeler Central School in Bartlett. Over 100 kids got up early Saturday morning to load a bus and then spent the day practicing for their concert which was presented that afternoon. The performance was exceptional and the musical selection was very entertaining. High 5 kids for a job well done!
Hope everyone had a great week and hope the forecasted snow stays away!!
High 5 til next week!!
