Haylee Harford Division II Girls State Golf Champion

2014 OHSAA STATE GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP
GIRLS DIVISION II
October 10 and 11, 2014
The Ohio State University Gray Golf Course, Columbus

Haylee Harford put the final touch on an incredible senior season by capturing the Division II Girls State Golf Championship.  She posted a first round score of -2 under par 68 that placed her in a tie for the lead and ensured her a spot in the final group for Saturdays 18 hole shootout.  During the last round of the tournament, Haylee played some incredible golf.  She continued to hit clutch shots as the pressure mounted leading into the final holes.  Her final round score was a +3 over par 73.  The total score of 141 gave Haylee a 1 stroke victory and the State Championship. 

Congratulations on a fantastic season and bringing home a State Championship!

Haylee Harford is Heading to Columbus to Compete for a State Championship in Golf

One of our students, Haylee Harford, is heading to Columbus to compete for a State Championship in golf.  This year, in the All American Conference, Haylee competed in the boys division.  How well did she play?  She not only led all golfers in the AAC in scoring during the season, but she also dominated the AAC tournament by beating all the players, even players from larger schools, such as Boardman, Canfield, Harding & Austintown Fitch.

Just this season, Haylee has set two individual LaBrae records:

She shattered the previous season average, set in 1989, by averaging an under par 35.1 over 14 matches and Haylee also owns the best 9 hole score by shooting a 4 under par round of 32.

Her tournament run so far looks like this:

Out of 85 golfers at the sectional tournament in Punderson, Haylee finished in 1st place with a 3 over 75.

Out of 72 qualifiers that made it to the Districts in Canton, Ohio, Haylee again was the best golfer on the course, shooting an unbelievable 4 under par 68.

In other words, she is really, really good! 

We are very proud to have Haylee Harford represent LaBrae High School in the Ohio State tournament this weekend in Columbus. 

It is a great day to be a Viking!

National Bullying Prevention Month

The following lesson was given by Sophomore Health teacher Mrs. Rutherford regarding National Bullying Prevention Month:

“October is National Bullying Prevention Month  On Tuesday, October 7th, to show our support, the High School Health Classes will be raising awareness by brightening someone's day! Health students each chose a student in the middle or high school or a staff member to highlight their amazing unique qualities that make them the wonderful people they are! If you notice your locker or door decorated with some notes, someone from Health class recognized how awesome you are!”

Excellent work by our sophomore students and Mrs. Rutherford.

2014-2015 LaBrae High School Updates

H.S./M.S. Student Drop-Off/Pick-Up Instructions Focus on Student Safety

In an effort to improve safety during the times when M.S./H.S. students are dropped off at school in the morning, we are requiring that parents use the driving lane directly along the M.S./H.S. entrance, or the designated drop-off locations on the west side of the LaBrae Complex.  Students are not to be dropped off in the main drive of the Complex.  Doing so creates an unsafe environment where students then have to cross traffic in the main drive and/or the visitor parking lot in front of the Complex. 

In order to prevent students from crossing through traffic, we ask that parents do not park along the main drive for student pick up.  Parents picking up their M.S./H.S. child are to use the driving lane adjacent to the school, or the parking lot in front of the Board of Education, which is directly behind the bus loading zone. Vehicles are prohibited from being in the bus loading zone during student drop-off/pick-up times.

It is important to eliminate any practices where students have to cross traffic as they enter or exit the building. Therefore, we kindly request that our parents join us in helping to make the morning/afternoon traffic environment at LaBrae a safe place for students.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated!

Please refer to the map below for the designated areas referred to above.
