Weekly Roundup: Launching gourds, conscession upgrades, and soccer hopes

On Tuesday, September 23rd, cross town rivals Central and Stevens met on the women’s soccer pitch for a rematch. After getting a lead in the first half from a goal from Leah Emerson, the Cobbler girls felt strong. When Morgan Wood of Stevens scored a goal in the second half, both teams fought for a lead like it was a fight for the death. The rematch ended up as a tie, both teams wishing it was a win for them. Going into the match Stevens was ranked third, but after the weekend are now placed at first. Central on the other hand was and still is ranked sixth. With both teams playing their last game of the regular season on Saturday, they both hope to come out with a slot in the state tournament.

The recent hookah pen and e-vape add-on to the student handbook has become a topic of discussion. Last year, hookah pens and e-vapes became very popular. That year, Mr. Seales and administrators collected 10 hookah pens/ e-vapes before the rule was added to the handbook. This year, hookah pens and e-vapes have been declining in popularity. Admin have only collected one hookah so far. Hookah and e- vape are scientifically proven to be more dangerous than cigarettes.


Under new leadership, Rory Fenske has given the concessions a much needed upgrade. The concessions now feature fruit smoothies and blended coffee along with popsicles, super nachos and a much larger variety of drinks and candy. He hopes that the new product will generate more revenue and happier spectators.


Mr. Rigg’s gigantic physic classes will be stepping up to the plate to launch innocently dressed-up gourds over 50ft.

The assignment will grant the victors, the champs, the top dogs of the physic classes a chance to participate in the opening ceremony of School of Mine’s pumpkin-launch event on September 27th at Main Street Square.
