Blazer Basketball
Both the Girls & Boys Basketball Teams competed in the All “A” Classic Basketball Tournament. The teams
made school history when both teams won their Region and advanced to the State Tournament in Frankfort.
The girls won their first round game, advancing to the Elite Eight where they met a tough Glasgow team and
lost a hard fought game. The boys played hard as well, but were defeated in the first round of play by Holy
Cross from Louisville. UHA couldn’t be more proud of these players and coaches!
New Mural for Multipurpose Room
UHA’s multipurpose room got a colorful
addition in January thanks to UHA Junior
Taten Frerichs. The large scale piece was
inspired by street art, an art form Taten
finds fascinating. He used multiple layers
of low pressure, highly pigmented spray
paint to complete the mural. The UHA mural will be a significant contribution to
Taten’s portfolio as he interviews in March
for Kentucky’s Governor’s School for the
Arts, a summer arts-intensive program. A
smaller version of the mural will be available at Spring Fling.

Upper and Middle School Winter Concert
The Upper and Middle School performed their winter concert in early December. Chorus is taught by Jill Bressler,
and the choir was accompanied by Ms. Liz Brown on the piano for the concert.
Lower School Christmas Program
The Lower School performed their annual Christmas Program in December. All students form Pre-K 4 through the 5th
grade participated. With a variety of large group songs, solos, and speaking parts the program showcased the talent of
our elementary students. The Lower School music program is under the direction of Dick Weaver.
Second Grade Field Trip
The second grade took a winter field trip to the ICE show at Gaylord
Opryland in Nashville. The ICE show depicts characters from Frosty
The Snowmen that are carved out of ice. Over 2 million pounds of ice
are used through out the exhibit. The students enjoyed learning
about how the ice was carved, and warming up with hot chocolate
when the tour was over! Second grade is taught by Lisa Bruce, and
Room Mom Denise Kendall organized the field trip.
Blazer Wrestling

Collins for qualifying for the KHSAA Wrestling
