2015-16 Athletic Physicals at Portage Northern

Athletic Physicals for the 2015-16 school year will be held on Monday June 1st @ Portage Northern HS from 6:00-7:00 pm. Doctors from Bronson Healthcare Midwest will be on site to provide the physicals to our students.

  1. Payment of $30- cash or check (checks payable to Portage Public Schools)
  2. 2015-16 Athletic Physical form- available in the athletic office and on-line on the athletic page of the Portage Northern website. This form must becompleted (all areas including health history) and signed by parent or guardian.

   ***students with form not signed by a parent will NOT been seen 

  1. You must be a current HS student or an 8th grader entering HS in the fall in order to be seen. Sorry- doctors will NOT see Middle School students.

This is a great way to get your physical done quickly and not have to wait for an appointment at the doctor’s office. Don’t miss the first few days of practice because your physical was not done and filed in the athletic office prior to tryouts/first day of practice.

Portage Northern Defeats Portage Central Again 3-2

PN2009SoccerLogoIn the rematch PN defeated PC in the Conference Game last night with Bailey Burchette getting the game winning score.

“It was tough to know what to expect because we both played really tough matches last night against ranked teams,” Northern coach Todd Wells said. “It was hotter today and both teams were running on tired legs, so it was a battle for sure.

“We started out really fast and set the pace early on. Maybe should have scored a couple of goals in the first half there, but they held us off. It was a great game – It’s the second win for Northern over Central, and for our girls it’s always a huge game and an unbelievable rivalry. Emotionally it’s a really big game to get up for and to beat them twice says a lot about the girls.”

Liz Kimmel made five saves for Portage Northern (7-9-1)

“I thought it was a really good game,” Portage Northern coach Todd Wells said. “They carried play in the first half, but we carried play in the second. To play a team like that and do well, we’re just working on getting better with every game and we feel like we’re accomplishing that.”

Portage Northern travels to Richland Gull Lake on Monday for a conference semifinal game.


Portage Northern VS Gull Lake

PN2009SoccerLogoA few bad calls by the ref and the final score was 0-2 Gull Lake.   “Northern always plays us tough,” Gull Lake coach Jeff Corstange said. “They’re young defensively, but solid in the backfield.”  Maggie Harma made two saves in the shutout effort for Gull Lake.  “We know what kind of offensive talent we have,” Corstange said. “We put pressure on other teams, knowing they have to leave other people in back. We switched up our formation in this game to see how Northern would react.”


Hackett vs Portage Northern

PN2009SoccerLogoPortage Northern wins 1-0 with the lone goal scored by Kelsey Lewis.  Liz Kimmel made one save.


“It was a tough game for us tonight, because Hackett defended really well and put a lot of players behind the ball at all times,” Portage Northern coach Todd Wells said. “We had to try and play balls through their defense, which was difficult.  “We were doing a lot of attacking tonight, so our defenders didn’t have a whole lot of work, and luckily Kelsey came through with a fantastic goal to give us the lead.”
