Oratory, Math and Baseball

Oratorical Winners

Saturday, 2-28-09, the three Optimist Oratorical clubs in Athens held their annual oratorical contest at the courthouse downtown. We were fortunate to have four contestants at the competition, two boys and two girls.

Asher Hill (grade 8) was one of three first place winners in the boys' competition, and Timmy Huang (gr. 6) was one of three second place winners in the boys' arena.

Mariah Pettis (gr. 7) and Isabella Manoguerra (gr.7) both received honorable mentions in the girls' competition.

Please congratulate these students when you see them this week. They worked very hard and were excellent ambassadors for Hilsman Middle School.


Below is the link for the Cedar Shoals Baseball website. Here, you can find our schedules, etc. We have upcoming games this Friday (@ North Oconee) and Saturday (HOME vs. South Effingham and Oconee). All home games are FREE w/school ID. Please come support your students.


Math Scholar

If you see Akshay Hariani in the halls please congratulate him on making the highest score that anyone has ever achieved at the Regional Mathcounts Contests in its 25 year history. He scored 45 out of a possible 46 eclipsing 42 by Boris, David, Phillip, and 43 by Cathy Deng.
