On Feb. 13, the Buccaneers trav- eled to Hazen. At the end of the first half, the Buccaneers were up 30-16. The Hazen Bison did outscore the Buccaneers in the second half, but they did not gain enough ground to win. When the final buzzer sounded, the score was 55-46, ending in a Buccaneer win. Two varsity players from Beach scored in the double dig- its that night. Junior Abby Wilbelmi scored 17 points, and junior Breenna Davidson ended the night with a total of 14 points for the Buccaneers. A few days later, the Lady Bucs headed back to Hazen for the first round of the Region 7 Girls Basket- ball Tournament. Hazen, ranked No. 8 in the region, hosted Beach, ranked No. 9. Due to injuries and influenza, the Buccaneers only had eight play- ers able to play on Feb. 17. At the end of the game, the Buccaneers lost 49- 75, ending the 2017 basketball season for the Lady Bucs. Hazen will move on inthe tournament, and was to play against Bowman County, ranked No. 1 in Region 7, on Feb. 20, at Dickin- son Trinity High School. The cham- pionship game for Region 7 will be played on Feb. 23, starting 25 min- utes after the third-place game ends. Valentine's Day saw another game played by the Beach Bucca- neers boys basketball team. Travel- ing to Dickinson to play against the Trinity Titans, the Buccaneers knew they had a hard game to play, as the Titans are ranked No. 1 in the region and have a record of 18-2. Giving the Titans a bit of a scare, the Bucca- neers jumpedto an early lead of 7-4. The Buccaneers lost the lead, ending the first quarter down 14-27. The final score was 46-85, with a win for the Titans. Freshman Gage Swanson was the lead scorer of the Buccaneers that game, scoring 20 points.

We'll be interviewing grantees about their film collection and family and community history. Those oral his- tory interviews will also be available online and at screening events." Larvick's grandparents taught in North Dakota until 1957 when they moved to Oregon, where they taught until their retirements. A1 Larvick was an athletic director at Valley City High School from the mid-1940s until 1957, and before that at numer- ous high schools around North Dakota. He also was a basketball and football coach and driver's education instructor. Grandmother Ethel Lar- vick taught reading and English classes. She also coached some girl's basketball teams early in her career. A1 Larvick was given an 8mm film camera in the early 1950s. His son Rockne purchased the camera so A1 Larvick could film basketball and football practices to help with coach- ing and game strategy. "My grandfa- ther used the camera for those purposes, but ended up filming much more," said Kirsten Larvick. "He re- ally fell in love with recording family and community and did so for the rest of his life." The ALCF if based in New York City because that's Kirsten Larvick's residence and where she incorporated the organization. The Thompson family films in- 1) Goodwin Thompson elude some aspects of regional or state history. Milo Thompson said construction of the Garrison Dam, parades, rodeos in Wibaux and Dick- inson are among what was captured. There also is some footage from his time as a student at forestry school in Bottineau. A few of the films were previ- ously preserved through the effort of Milo Thompson's daughters Lindsey, Alexa and Laura, who had them con- verted to CDs. Laura also noticed that the State Historical Society of North Dakota was telling of the availability ALCF grants, for which the family decided to apply. Annu- ally, the ALCF makes a North Dakota grant and a national grant. Students (Continued from Page 1) Angelika Harutyunyan said Armenia is a very old nation, dating all the way back to the 2500s BC. She attributed this fact to the reason Armenians are more traditional. "Here in America people are more independent, and that's what I like here. People are more open and strangers are talking with each other like close friends." Kapan and Beach are quite different in their types of school systems as well. In Armenia, students can't choose their schedule, and all 17 classes must be taken. Their class schedule is different every day, but the same every week. Like many other schools, seniors have their classes only with seniors and no one else. After graduation, students have exams from six classes. Graduates choose one from science, one from foreign languages, and four others. Harutyuwan participates in FBLA at Beach High School, and is planning on joining the track and field team this spring. Her favorite class at Beach is art. She shared that she didn't know she had a love for art before coming to America. Harutyunyan will be heading back to Armenia in June. While she will miss many things about the U.S. when she leaves, she said she will miss her host family most of all. "They became my second family," said Harutyunyan. "I proudly can say that I have two moms and two dads. Also I'll miss my friends here. Hopefully I'll have a chance to see them again." Also known as Choke, Chaiwat Buayai is from Khonkean, Thailand, and he is staying with Bob and Kelli Allen. He participates in FBLA at Beach High School, and is planning on joining the track and field team this spring. Buayai's favorite class at Beach High School is world history. One of the biggest differences between American and Thailand schools is that students in Thailand cannot choose their classes. When asked what he will miss most from the U.S. when he returns home, i ~i~ ~ Buayai said he will miss friends and teachers. Mei Ohmura, a foreign exchange student from Iwamizawa, Japan, is also staying with the Maychrzak family while attending Beach High School. Her favorite subject at Beach High is nutrition and foods. She loves work- ing together with other students to make different dishes.
