Four years ago the graduating class of 2023 was told that our high school years would go by fast, but we never believed them. Four years later, we only have only a week left of high school. If anyone were to come up and ask the Potosi High School seniors of 2023 what their favorite thing about high school was, they would be able to share their favorite memories of being a Potosi Chieftain. Four years of memories can’t fit into one short story, but here are some memories that will last a lifetime.
The seniors played a big role in sports teams. Those sports provided many memories. Emily Bierman shared her memorable moment: "Winning the Regional Championship in volleyball my junior year with a sweep against Southwestern. The atmosphere inside the packed gym was crazy and very memorable ”.
Logan Kruser added, “Winning conference in baseball last year when it hadn’t been done in 10 years. The baseball program wasn't very good the previous year, so having such a good turnaround and surprising people was what made it so special. “
Sam Udelhoven also added his favorite memory, which included, “Beating Wauzeka in the Regional Final my junior year of basketball as the underdogs. Wauzeka was undefeated at the time and expected to go to state, so no one saw us coming.”
Aside from sports, there is also the academic aspect of school. We have all made great memories inside the classrooms here at Potosi. Summer Cohen talked about, “The out-of-the ballpark conversations that happen in Personal Finance with Mr. Lynn. Summer enjoys Mr. Lynn’s class because, “there are a lot of opportunities to learn about life in general and stay up to date on current and social news topics.”
“Goofing around in Mrs. Brunton’s,” added Willie Udelhoven. Willie enjoys having a class with Mrs. Brunton because she’s able to mess around and take jokes, and she doesn’t give out much homework.
We are all so thankful for these past four years. Not only did these four years teach us important life skills, but they also have given us so many memories.
