November 5, 2010

Norma Mitschelen recently discovered the excitement and thrill of once again being airborne, just as she had done during World War II while serving as a Seaman First Class with the United States Navy. She both repaired and refueled naval airplanes at Grissom Air Force Base in Kokomo —formerly known as “Bunker Hill.”

Heeter sets Panthers' school record

September 23, 2010

NAPPANEE — Earning a place in the NorthWood High School volleyball record book wasn’t on senior Kaci Heeter’s mind. But on Aug. 28, Heeter did just that by becoming the program’s all-time leader in career assists.
“I wasn’t ever really thinking about setting a school record,” Heeter said. “When I was told I set it, I was kind of shocked. I was happy and excited. It’s cool.”
At the Prairie Heights Invitational, Heeter eclipsed the previous mark of 2,741 assists held by 2007 graduate Casey Bough.
