Team Hoyt Brings "Yes You Can" Message to the Middle School

One of the many ways that Team Hoyt strives to educate the public about people with disabilities is through inspirational speaking engagements, and on friday February 1 the Hoyts brought their message to the 7th and 8th graders at the Hopkinton Middle School.

After watching a short film that summarized the story of Rick's birth and the challenges he faced growing up with cerebral palsy, the students listened as Dick Hoyt thanked them and talked about the Hoyts can do attidude.

The students also had the opportunity to hear from Rick directly. In a speech prepared ahead of time with the help of his computer, Rick was able to tell his story in his own words. But the highlight of the afternoon came after the formal presentation when the students asked several followup questions, getting to know the Hoyts even better.

The Middle School Running Club presented the Hoyts with t-shirts, Ms. McNally's class posed for a group photo, and several students lingered for a one on one conversation .

As the Hoyts were preparing to leave, it was evident that they were successful in getting their message across. Watch the HCAM news video for highlights of the event and to listen as students Eric Oleson and Ryan Mastroianni talk about their experience meeting Dick and Rick Hoyt.

On February 4, my friend's basset hound "Flash" escaped from her home on Purchase Street in Milford. She is a tri-colored dog with a white, brown, and black coat. Flash is a senior dog but very sweet, and she loves everyone. She was last seen by a neighbor on Purchase Street who was unable to catch her. She was limping, so she may be injured. If you see her or have any information about her, please call 1-508-244-8956. Thank you.

HHS Cheerleaders Prepare for Nationals

For the second year in a row and for the fourth time in five years, the Hiller Cheerleaders will compete at Nationals. On February 14th, the team will head down to CHEERSPORT in Atlanta Georgia to compete against a thousand top high schools and all-star teams from across the country.

At last year's Nationals in Orlando, the team placed 6th in their division and out of all the teams at the competition, were honored with the Best Sportsmanship Award.

To receive a bid to Nationals, the team received over 160 out of 200 at the State Championship. And with Nationals fast approaching, the team has been working hard to make this year just as successful.

And in order to foster the teamwork needed to successfully perform the pyramid, a stunt that the whole team participates in, the girls have developed a special bond with each other both on and off the mat.

Another way the girls spent time with each other was through organizing and running fundraisers to help finance their trip to Nationals. In the month of January alone, the team sponsored an all you can eat pancake breakfast at Applebee's, a pizza fundraiser at Papa Ginos, a spaghetti dinner at the Woodville Rod and Gun Club, and a clinic for aspiring cheerleaders. Thanks to community support, the team was able to raise the needed amount of money to make the trip official.

And as the captains' Hopkinton High cheerleading careers culminate, they know that there is a bright future ahead for the team.

This year, the team's performances on the 16th at 12:08pm and on 17th at 11:36am can be streamed live on dartfish.tv. Reporting for HCAM News, I'm Stephanie Kane.
