National Championship: Crimson Tide Washes Over The Georgia Bulldogs In Overtime

in Sports by

Billions of seconds, thousands of heartbeats, two teams, one champion. On Jan. 8 the Georgia Bulldogs faced the Alabama Crimson Tide in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. Although the match-up was not the most critically acclaimed due to both teams coming from the SEC, the race to the finish proved to be one hard fought battle.

At halftime, the Georgia Bulldogs led 13-0 and the future seemed very bright for the “Junkyard Dawgs.” However, poor execution, very controversial referee mistakes and conservative mind-sets caused the Dawgs to cry tears of defeat, instead of triumph.

Today, happiness is seen as the number of smiles that exist on faces each day. But when the mask is peeled away and the truth remains, happiness is so much more. Regular happiness is temporary, but underneath the smiling mask, one can find the true joy of a human being.

Just Dance Club- “Despite the name, Just Dance Club is just as much for people who aren’t naturally inclined dancers. Improvement over perfection, right?” said junior Rachel Hudson. Hudson runs the new Just Dance Club alongside dance teacher and Middle School Theater Director Stephanie Simmons, who sponsors the club.  This is a low commitment club, meeting only on the specific Friday club times and having different choreography each time clubs meet. Even if dancing is not your best suit, it is worth a try because you might just have a change of heart. Hudson said, “The main purpose of the club is to give a platform for people who want to teach choreography and for people who are tired from sitting all day and want to get up and move a little.”

Juniors Rachel Hudson and Trinity Russo are practicing dance moves. Hudson.

College Football: Who Will Come Out On Top?

in Sports by

The beginning of school always brings the exciting factor of good ol’ college football. The 2017-18 football season is a fresh start for every team, and fans can look forward to the start of the season with new schedules and new rankings for their teams.

Even though it is still early in the season for all teams, already some predictions have been made for who will be in the college football playoffs. Prior to the start of the season, experts predicted: #1 Alabama over #4 Ohio State; #2 Clemson over #3 Washington. This would then leave Alabama and Clemson, with the prediction of Alabama beating Clemson in the national championship game. Last year the Tigers pulled off a 35-31 win against the University of Alabama to end their season. A potential rematch would be a fan favorite because it would take the same two teams from last year’s national championship game and stir up a rematch with the Crimson Tide coming out on top.
