    Chris Pringle, Ryan Moran and Angeles Acevedo are grateful for the service project this year. Alayna Fogarty.

On Oct. 10, the Senior Leadership Team and a group of volunteers joined forces to create meaningful gifts to give to the facilities team for all of their hard work and dedication.

The facilities team is responsible for maintaining Wesleyan’s beautiful campus. They set up and breakdown events, clean every room in all buildings and more. While keeping a strong work ethic, they make sure to express positivity in everything they do, and they are never seen with attitudes that aren’t always after achieving their golas. Although they are always appreciated it is more difficult for students to see the impact they are making, because many members of the team get to school after the students. After school hours, you will find the team picking up garbage students left behind from a morning snack or they will pick up that crumbled-up test which has 68 in red marker at the top, left behind from a sad student. The work ethic that encompasses the many members of the facilities team is truly awe inspiring, and they are a pure example of what to strive for when wanting to achieve the character trait of hard working.

As the highly recognized State Championship football team returned for the celebration of their 10th year anniversary, many former players shared moments, lessons and feelings of the one game that made their hard work worthwhile.

On Oct. 19, at the Wesleyan homecoming football game, the State Championship team was acknowledged for their achievement 10 years ago. The nostalgia of the high school experience was more likely in full effect, as the Friday night lights shined down upon them one more time. They got to bask in the glory of, to some of them, the best days of their lives.

Former football player and Alumnus Scott Schroer (’10) said, “I think I miss the people the most. The coaches, players, cheerleaders and managers all made that year so unique and the fact that I got to play 15 games with all my best friends, and also win, was really special.”

Snapchat: Is it Controlling or Just a Necessary Outlet?

in Features by

Social media consumes the hours of many teenagers and adults. Although adults tend to stick with Facebook, the depleting role of social media is seen to disturb adults as well as kids. Teenagers have possibly abused the right of social media, but finding a healthy medium may help solve the issue with the addiction to this drug.

The most in demand social media app that high schoolers tend to gravitate towards is Snapchat. It is so easy to get caught up in a world away from the world as stress skyrockets and the craving for an escape increases. Snapchat is probably one of the most difficult apps to cleanse from because of the various attributes that this app holds including streaks, location devices, group chats, memories and stories. Essentially, Snapchat holds most of the characteristics and functions that other apps have, but all consolidated into one.

The Water Polo Team Hopes to Rally Their Way to State

in Sports by

The water polo team, consisting of various grades in the high school, has made a run for their money. According to Georgia High School Association, the Wesleyan water polo team holds a losing record this season, but junior Harrison Dearth said, “We are undefeated because every match we have lost counts as a scrimmage in hopes to improve the next time around.

Knowing the history of water polo motivates the players to take this sport seriously and view the importance of it. The first ever game took place in Scotland and from then on it was often played in Great Britain and soon expanded further. The difference between Americanized water polo and the more dated version is that the Americanized water polo allows for rougher play. The rules are more flexible with physical contact more so than the older version. It is important for the players to know the past of the sport they play so they know how to progress and work hard.

in Sports by

Although the months of Aug. and Sept. are usually poignant reminders of the beginning of school, in the world of sports these months are a sign of excitement and feelings of hope for victory in the months to come. College football is a great time for college students to bond, diehard fans to rival against each other and bandwagon fans to resort to the team coming out on top. Although football is not for everyone, the atmosphere of college football is a treat in itself, even without the football.

The previous college football season ended on, well, not that much of a shocker. The Alabama Crimson Tide was victorious and defeated the Georgia Bulldogs in overtime, with a pass into the endzone leaving Georgia fans in tears and Alabama fans in triumph, yet again. UGA fanatic and junior Josh Morris said, “by far the Most upsetting event last season was watching Georgia lose to Alabama in the National Championship.” After feeling like their football team was going to do it after 37 years, Georgia fans were in dismay, but the team and fans are hoping to have bounced back ready to attack the day this season.
