Northeastern Dance Party!

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

As promised, here is a video clip of one of the 2015 Talent Show entries from Northeastern! This video was originally posted to Facebook by Penny Benedict, Caleb’s mother. Thanks Penny!  (Caleb is the taller, rather “enthusiastic” dancer on the left in the back.)

Status After Day Two

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

After yesterday on Day 1, both teams were in the top ten (out of 21 total teams), with Northeastern 2 in 6th place and Northeastern 1 in 8th place.  Today, Day 2, did not go as well and both teams slipped to 9th and 13th respectively.  However, everyone is still in good spirits and looking forward for what Day 3 (Thursday) brings.  Please continue to keep them in prayer!  They appreciate everyone’s support and want everyone to know they are having fun!  Today was also a talent contest today and there may be a video of some of the activities available somewhere soon.  Once we have a link we will post it here!

Although the tournament has yet to start, today was busy for quizzers and coaches alike.  Activities included carpet ball competitions, registration, coach’s quiz, coach’s meeting, etc.  Both Northeastern teams (along with accompanying parents) and all coaches are now together at Crown College and ready for the day to begin tomorrow!  We’ve received word that not only will the stats for the week be posted for everyone to keep track from home but also rumor has it that the finals will be streamed live online from Crown on Friday!  Stay tuned for more info!

One place we know you can check stats out at is on the Western PA district’s stats web site here:
