Mr.Fritchman feels that his slight time with MHS as been even better then great. The love that Fritchman has to pass knowledge that he has down to others is uncanny. With Fritchman’s love of teaching he decided to go to the army he served two tours of duty mostly in Egypt and Germany. Now Fritchman still loves teaching but he also loves to Kayaking in calm waters and go Recumbent trike riding. This school has great students and staff says Fritchman. He also said he is blessed to be among them, learning much from both colleague and student alike. He believes his positive creative enthusiasm is a great value. He enjoys seeing students’ faces light up because they feel accomplished or they find his approach humorous yet helpful.


Well Mr. Ryan Armes decided to take some time off last year and I didn’t take very long for him to come back teaching kids that he used to teach Intro to business and businesses classes but he came back to teach something that was a void in the Mississinewa Curcimulm and that was Intro to computer science and AP Computer Science. It looks like he still loves teaching even from way back in the days of teaching business. I enjoyed his love for computing and informatics since the days back in Indiana Wesleyan University, he knew he wanted to spread his own knowledge that he learned to the students of Mississinewa High School in a fun but Informational way of teaching.

Smith loves it here so far, he says that this school is perfect for him and has a deep tradition has been a great experience for him. He liked the idea of working with students but he was also a huge history nerd, so he combined the two into a profession. Smith gained his knowledge and degree at Indiana Wesleyan University. Smith is deaf in one ear and also has a metallic heart valve, but that doesn’t stop him for doing the things he enjoys like playing tennis, cooking, watching movies and Reading a good book once an a while. Mr.Smith sees this school as a great opportunity, for students to learn and grow into creative learners, while teachers can place out their passion for their content into practice with their passion for seeing student growth. Smith says that he has already benefited from the diverse experiences he has had in his classroom as he works to create a positive learning environment.

After regular season success, Going 20-0, Sophomore Tyra Stanley still wants more as Sectionals approach. Tyra joins Cassie Fleming in 2007, Fleming was 14-0 in the regular season before she lost in the 5th round of the state tournament. The most recent person to go undefeated in the regular season was Sarah Osborne in the 2014 season. Sarah lost in the 2nd round of the state tournament. Talent may just run in the Stanley family, Tyra’s sister (Mason) and her teammate Abby Fleming, were 2015 state finalist and both were named to the 2015 1st team all state. Tyra Stanley becomes the first Sophomore in Girls Tennis history to have an undefeated season at 20-0. As a team The Lady Indians Tennis Team won the CIC Conference defeating Madison Grant to seal the deal, the Lady Indians ended the regular season 13-2. A fun fact to add about Girls Tennis is they have had the most consistency over the last decade with wins in a season. I had the chance to talk to Tyra on Friday and asked her how cool it would be to go undefeated. “It would be really cool, I’m trying my best”. “As a team I feel we have done very well, knowing we won the Conference is great we worked really hard this season” said Stanley. The IHSAA Girls Tennis State Tournament begins this Wednesday for the Lady Indians at Marion High School beginning at 5pm. Stay tuned to @DaltonBishop00 @MHSTribeTV and @MCSCAthletics on Twitter for updates as we will have coverage of the MHS Girls Tennis Team on Wednesday.

Stanley Talks About Her Undefeated Season- “It feels awesome to go undefeated and to have been added to school history. My biggest reason for success has been my coach who has believed in me and who has put hundreds of hours into practice. I also have to thank my family who makes sure I make it to every match, My incredible team who makes it so much fun to play with.”

A Sweep Of The Weekend!

Story By: Dalton Bishop, TribeSportsNetwork Director

Racing- After picking up a win two weeks ago at Brownstown Speedway, Kevin Thomas Jr. has been the hottest driver on the Non-Wing Sprint Car map. Friday evening at Gas City I69 Speedway, there was 20 Non-Wing Sprint Cars signed into the pit area for the first ever Midwest Sprint Car Series event at the track. Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana, was quickest overall in qualifying with a time of 12.888 seconds. There would be three MSCS heat races with 8 laps in the distance. Greenwood, MO driver Clinton Boyles would wheel the legendary Paul Hazen owned #57 to victory in heat race number one behind him would be Shane Cottle in the Phillips Motorsports #71P and Thomas Meseruall would be third in the Don Whitney Racing #00. Heat race number two would be Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon driving his own FatHeadz Eyewear, Telstar Technologies #99 machine to victory. Following in second was Terre Haute, Indiana’s Brandon Mattox in car #28 and Malvern, PA #50 Tony DiMattia in third. The Third and final MSCS Heat race would be Cullman, Alabama’s Kevin Thomas Jr. picking up the win in the Dooling-Hayward #63. Willow Branch, Indiana’s Isaac Chapple and Rocklin, California native Robert Ballou would round out the top three. That brought us to the 30 Lap Amain event. Brady Bacon would jump out the early lead of 4.76 seconds before a lap 25 caution. That lap 25 caution would bunch all the cars back up with Brady Bacon as the leader, Kevin Thomas Jr. was second and Shane Cottle was third. On the lap 25 restart Bacon would dive back down to the bottom as Kevin Thomas Jr. would head to the top to try to build his momentum to pass Bacon but that wouldn’t be enough, until lap 27 Thomas would pull alongside Bacon off of turn two. Heading into turn three Bacon would fall behind Thomas, heading into turn one Bacon would slide Thomas, KTJ would counter back and take the lead to go onto to win the 30 Lap MSCS Amain. KTJ was piloting the Joe Dooling, Brody Hayward, B&H Contractors, Jonathan Byrd’s racing #63. Brady Bacon would end up second, Shane Cottle from Kokomo, Indiana would be third, with Clinton Boyles and Thomas Meseruall rounding out the top five.

Night 2- The Second race of the weekend would be the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Cars at Plymouth Speedway in Indiana. The ProSource quick qualifier was Kevin Thomas Jr. with a time of 13.089. That would take the Sprint Cars into a set of three ten lap heat races. Simpson Race Products Heat One would be won by Kevin Thomas Jr., Tyler Courtney would finish second in the Clauson-Marshall-Newman #7BC machine. Third place would go to Princeton, Indiana’s Kyle Cummins. Competition Suspension Heat Two was taken by Kokomo, Indiana native Shane Cottle driving the Phillips Motorsports, Frank and Jill Daigh, Half Moon Resturant and Brewery, Foxco powered DRC. Second place finisher was Robert Ballou, with third place finisher being Isaac Chapple. Chalk Stix heat three would be the final Heat of the evening. Defending USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car champion Chris Windom would win with Justin Grant and Tony DiMattia rounding out the top three. The 30 Lap Amain was quite interesting, Dave Darland emerged as the initial leader on lap one by mere inches while one-lap track record holder Chase Stockon wheel-stood his way past Darland to the lead by the time the field reached turn one. Third starting Tyler Courtney had flipped the switch and motored around the outside of Stockon in turn four on the fourth circuit to take the lead.  Courtney had much less ground to make up compared to a year ago at Plymouth when he charged to second from his 18th starting position. In just a short amount of time Courtney’s lead began to diminish, as Kevin Thomas Jr. began to shorten the leash. But on lap 20, Daylan Chambers made contact on the back straightaway wall scattering debris across the track as he slanted toward the infield to bring out the final caution of the night. Thomas was now in a position to go to school on Courtney as he did CJ Leary at Tri-State Speedway a week ago. On the 23rd lap, Courtney continued to run the middle/low line while Thomas put his Dynamics, Inc. #69 up top.  At the exit of four Courtney swung wide toward the outside wall to keep Thomas behind him.  Thomas replied by countering to the bottom entering turn one as Courtney remained high.  Thomas slipped by and Ballou tagged along for the ride as well, executing a sweeping pass around the outside of Courtney for second between turns one and two a half lap later. On the final lap Ballou would make contact with Thomas but not enough to take him out of the lead. Thomas would win back to back nights with Tyler Courtney finishing second and Ballou third.

Kokomo Speedway-  On Sunday Night Kevin Thomas Jr. was feeling pretty good heading into the racing action in the Dooling Machine #63. Heat race One had some heavy hitters in it including the all time wins leader in Kokomo Speedway history (Dave Darland) the USAC P1 Insurance Midget points leader (Logan Seavey) and last year’s Amsoil National Sprint Car champion (Chris Windom). Shane Cottle, Darland, Windom, and Seavey would all battle for the lead early before Darland took advantage and would win the first heat of the night. Heat two would be no surprise as Kevin Thomas Jr. would win over CJ Leary and Kyle Cummins. The Third and final heat of the night Ione, California’s Justin Grant take the checkers with Carson Short and Thomas Meseruall to follow him. The 30 Lap Amain would be all KTJ but Dave Darland gave him all he had but could not overcome him. Thomas would win over Darland, Grant, Windom, and Cummins. “Indiana kicked my butt for the longest time and to just now begin to be competitive makes me thankful to just keep sticking with it” said Thomas Jr. “This is definitely a weekend i’ll never forget, this just shows how hard the guys behind me work day in and day out to prepare these race cars”. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 10.52.03 AM.png
