Dreaming of a Wesleyan Christmas

in Features by

“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” on Wesleyan campus, a season that brings family, friends and communities together. The magic of the Christmas season not only brings joy and cold weather to Wesleyan, but it also is a start to the makings of many Christmas memories. Responses were collected throughout the school from fifth grader Garrison Dallam to Head of School Chris Cleveland. The Wesleyan community was able to share their personal views on Christmas and what their holiday favorites are when this season approaches. A nine-question survey was sent out to the high school to ask what students preferred the most during the Christmas season.

When Christmas comes around, the Wesleyan community goes over the top to decorate, more than any other season. Over 50 trees get put on display, thanks to the Wesleyan parents, and every student brings in an ornament to represent themselves. “I love it when we decorate all of campus. I think it looks beautiful,” Cleveland said. Junior Elizabeth Bertram said, “My favorite thing that Wesleyan does during Christmas is play music throughout the halls during the school day.”

Relentless: Atlanta Braves 2019 Season

in Sports by

The Atlanta Braves wrapped up their regular season by clinching the National League (NL) East Division title over the San Francisco Giants leading 6-0 on Sept. 20, but that has not been the highlight of their winning streak. Former Braves player and Hall of Famer Chipper Jones described their regular season as, “Very consistent, I think they exceeded expectations. Most people had them winning somewhere around 90 games this year and to come out and win 97, they played extremely well.”

Centerfielder Ronald Acuña Jr.’s name comes with praise for his performance in each game. Competing for a spot as the fifth player in MLB history to go 40 and 40 (40 homeruns and 40 steals), Acuña fell short of this goal due to a pulled groin muscle, which limited his playing time. First baseman Freddie Freeman had an outstanding MVP caliber season hitting 38 homeruns and 121 RBIs. The Braves offense also featured newcomer third baseman Josh Donaldson, who Jones defined as “unreal.” He really came into form during the course of the regular season and was among the league-leading hitters in several offensive categories.

College Commits’ Journeys

in Features/Sports by

The Wesleyan athletics program has been extremely successful with sending high school students to play at the collegiate level. With the help of families and coaches, the end of their journey marks their final decision, “Where do I see myself next?” Here are the following highlighted students: Lucy Mitchell, Reece Holbrook and Druw Jones, each with their own unique journey.

Lucy Mitchell:

From the first step on Notre Dame’s main campus to the women’s soccer field, senior Lucy Mitchell, felt most at home in South Bend, Indiana. Her commitment process was made easier because she loved the overall culture that Notre Dame offered. With senior year flying by, she is extremely excited for this last season with the Lady Wolves’ soccer team and what the futures holds for her at Notre Dame next fall.
