Eight AHS students attended a Story County “Chopped” culinary competition, on Friday, April 7th at the DMACC Hunziker Center. Fourteen area school teams competed by creating three entree plates from a surprise basket of tilapia fish fillets or chicken breasts, sweet potatoes, asparagus, kiwi and crystallized ginger. Other pantry items were also available to these students to round out their culinary masterpieces. Second place honors went to the two-man team of: Joey Kind and Jahliel Finch. Fourth place was secured by Noelle Flugrad, D’Nel Vandenberg and Vonnie Castorena. Our last team consisted of Dylan Schaben, Corey Gibson and Greg Bernhard, who also learned valuable lesson about competition, food safety and preparing meals under a strict time limitation. All 45 students competing in the event are students who have or are currently taking Food and Nutrition courses in their local high school Family and Consumer Department.

Sometimes we find who we are in a relationship, sometimes we lose who we are in a relationship; sometimes we get what we want in a relationship, sometimes it is not our destiny. These are the themes the Ames High School Theatre Department will explore when they present John Cariani’s Love/Sick. Following the popularity of Almost Maine, Love/Sick is a series of nine vignettes that examines the lifecycle of love in various relationships. Beginning the evening is a one-act pre-show, The Fifteen Minute Hamlet by Tom Stoppard. Nine actors will recreate Shakespeare’s most infamous play in fifteen minutes. Shows are April 28 and 29 beginning at 7:00 PM. Admission is $5.00 for high school and older and $4.00 for 8th grade and younger.

The Ames High Girls Golf Team will hold a fundraiser on Wednesday, April 19, at Noodles & Company, 400 South Duff Avenue in Ames, from 11:00 AM-9:00 PM. We hope that many students, parents, teachers, and others will stop in and support the AHS Girls Golf Team. Please be sure to mention the AHS Girls Golf Team when you place your order for the team to receive a percent of sales for the fundraiser. Thanks, and your support is greatly appreciated!!
