Crusaders Travel to Shattuck

Corn, OKLA — The Corn Bible Academy Crusaders finished the football regular season with a win over the Duke Tigers last Friday night by a score of 54-42. The Crusaders and Tigers were battling for the third and fourth positions in District C-2 as they advance to the first round of the OSSAA class C football playoffs. The offense of each team was able to move the ball and that was reflected in the final score. The Crusaders led throughout the contest and were able to hold off a late surge by the Tigers as they recovered several onside kick attempts. With the win, the Crusaders finish the regular season with a record of 6-3 overall and 5-2 in the district. They will travel to face the number two team from district C-1, the Shattuck Indians. The Indians have a record of 8-1. Game time is 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 13th.

Seniors Present “Willa Wonkie and the College Tour”

Corn, OKLA — In this scrumdiddlyumptious parody of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie Pail, (Madeline Mann)  wants nothing more than to go to college, but she knows her mother, Mrs. Pail, (Katrina Wichert) and her Grandpa Joe (Levi McAbee), could never afford it. One day, a glimmer of hope enters her life when the oddball dean of students, Willa Wonkie, (Madison Musick) announces that chances for a campus tour will be added to Insolitus University admissions packets—only 5 of them. Every student in the world watches and waits to hear the news anchor (Rusty Epp) report each day as, one by one, the silver college tour invitations are found by wanting students. Against all odds, Charlie does receive a silver ticket and it seems that her dreams have come true. But first, she must survive the extraordinarily bizarre campus tour with the other ticket winners:  one Veruca Pepper, (Katrina Wichert) a spoiled rich kid and her situation-fixing father, Dr. Pepper (Trevor Foster); one Violet Turpisgarde, (Marissa Graf) a social media queen with a vlog, with a v whose father, (Mason Folsom) Mr. Turpisgarde is running for office (listen for his wacky campaign promises.); one Mike Nintendo, (Denton Drinnon) a gamer with a proud mama, Mrs. Nintendo (Jennifer Friesen); and one Augustus Brawn, (Ruben Marrufo) an all-around athlete, with his athletic trainer father, (Jr Carter Smith). Desperate for information, Snailworth (Christina Dowell) tries to bribe each of the ticket holders to spy for her and her university. Our Narrator (Hannah Hays) helps keep our story moving along until she herself is banned from the campus tour. If anyone can survive this group, it will be Charlie. If not, the Uni Loonies, the campus maintenance men, will surely be escorting her away, too. Prepare yourselves for a rollicking comedy full of electronic-snatching flying monkeys, intelligence-enhancing food (with peanuts), a rip-roaring river ride and a stockpile of sarcastic humor coming your way in Willa Wonkie and the College Tour (Chocolate NOT Included).
The Senior Class will perform this play on Saturday, October 31, at 7 pm with a matinee showing on Friday,October 30, at 1 pm. Tickets will be $3 for the matinee and $7 for the evening performance. Come enjoy an Italian meal before the play on Saturday from 5:00 to 6:30 pm in the CBA gymnasium. The junior class is offering a menu of homemade lasagna, bacon wrapped green beans, tossed salad, bosco sticks and a cream cheese desert for $8.

Corn Bible Academy Choir to Sing at Thunder Game

Corn Bible Academy Choir 2015

Corn, OKLA — Currently in his 51st year of teaching music at Corn Bible Academy, Charles Regier has directed choirs before hundreds of audiences. No audience, however, has been as large as the one that will be present November 18 when the CBA choir will open with the national anthem at an Oklahoma City Thunder game. The process began in July when Regier applied to the Thunder organization for the choir to sing before one of the games. As part of the application process, the choir produced a video recording of “The Star Spangled Banner”. After review of the performance by the Thunder organization, the CBA choir was approved and a date was scheduled. “I’m excited about getting our school’s name out there in front of that many people,” said the choir director, “This will be a special performance for our students”.

Corn Bible Academy Volleyball Finishes Strong

Crusaders at State Tournament

Corn, OKLA — The Corn Bible Academy high school volleyball team’s season came to an end on Friday when CBA lost to Chisholm in 5 sets in the first round of the 3A State Tournament in Choctaw. CBA faced the difficult challenge of competing against Chisholm, the top ranked team in the tournament, but the Crusaders did not go down without a fight. The first set of the showdown was neck-and-neck, but Chisholm ultimately defeated the Crusaders with a score of 20-25. The second set, however, produced entirely different results. This time CBA came out the gates firing and won by a score of 25-17. The third set saw Chisholm lead for the majority, but the Crusaders pulled off an impressive late comeback to emerge victorious 26-24. Only one game away from defeating their opponent, the Crusaders were unable to take set 4 and lost 16-25. With momentum on the side of Chisholm, CBA refused to give up but ultimately lost again in the fifth set 6-15.
Clinton resident Alli Russell led the team with 13 kills and was selected to the all-tournament team. Morgan Potter of Canute totaled 32 digs for the day, and Halle Penner of Weatherford led the team in blocks with 3. Setters Mikayla Nelson, Clinton, and Marissa Graf, Corn, contributed with 13 and 17 assists, respectively.
“Everyone played hard and gave their best effort.  We have much to be proud of this season,” said Erin Basinger, who coached the team along with assistant Emily Dick. “I want to complement our seniors (Marissa Graf, Corn; Madeline Mann, Clinton; and Katrina Wichert, Corn) on the great leadership they gave our team this year,” Basinger said.  “Although the State Tournament didn’t end for us like we thought it should, it gave us something to aim for next year.”
