Get your head in the game: Senior leads team both on court, academically

The pristine shine of polished hardwood, crowds screaming “Defense!”, coaches yelling for players to watch the ball, and only 30 seconds left on the clock. For senior Wade McGregor, this is the atmosphere that pushes and inspires him to keep coming back to the game he loves to play.

Swinging into action: Girls drive golf team toward successful season

They look down the green with narrowed eyes to block out the sun’s glare. After adjusting the clubs in their hands, they mentally calculate the distance and the amount of force they must swing to get a tiny ball over 300 yards across a field while avoiding water hazards, sand traps, and trees while taking into account the wind. Becoming more confident, they swing, and the balls fly away through the air. For sophomore Skye Faldyn and senior Ellie Conrad, this has become natural.

Taking it to the hoop: Senior posts up in leadership role on team

Working one’s way up to the top requires hard word, dedication, time, effort, and patience. When a sophomore earns their spot on a varsity team, the style of play changes. It’s faster, it’s harder, it’s more aggressive, and it’s overwhelming, but as the seasons pass, the player gains experience and that sophomore who was overwhelmed now leads the team. Senior Charnell Gibson has experienced this in basketball, starting out on the JV team as a freshman and then as a sophomore on varsity. She was immersed in the change of pace and is now leading the charge on the court.

Helping others heal: Focus shouldn’t just be on US during natural disasters

Since early September, it seems like the US has been ravaged by natural disaster. Our home state was hit by hurricane Harvey, Florida was hit by hurricane Irma, California has been razed by massive wildfires, and more recently a storm developed off the east coast named hurricane Jose. However, a lot of people disregard natural disasters outside of the United States. Such as Puerto Rico, which was hit by Hurricane Maria.

Tears and laughter: Paramore releases new album after four year hiatus

In recent years, a particular technique has bounced its way back into the music scene: 80’s beats and sounds. As a fan of most 80’s music (especially bops like Toto’s “Africa” and Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al”) and popular bands of today, I appreciate the resurgence of these nostalgic sounds. So when my favorite band, Paramore, released their most recent album After Laughter in May 2017, I instantly fell in love with the group’s new pop-ish style (especially after listening to the album in its entirety about four times a day for a week).

New spin on medical drama leaves audiences rushing to the operating room

“We need an O.R quick! Nurse hand me a 10 blade please, patient’s in cardiac arrest! We’re losing them!” We’ve listened to these medical phrases through series after series on the television screen. One would think Americans would be sick and tired of rewatching the same storyline play over and over again, but a new medical drama The Good Doctor has added a new twist to the story.
