Trying to regain strength with every breath, sophomore Patrico Salazar competes in the longest event in UIL high school swimming, the 500-yard freestyle. For the fourth meet of the season, the swim team drove to The University of Texas where they participated in the annual AISD invite. Like the teams times, the temperatures outside were starting to drop. Regardless of how much I swam, I was only able to sustain for an hour of practice, Salazar said. Then I started shivering while swimming and turning purple on my hands, feet and pretty much all around.”

Under the hot sun of Arizona, social studies teacher Mark Tibbetts and his dog, Boston, pose for a picture. Tibbetts got his masters in education at the University of Arizona, where he was living when he was reunited with his dog after five years. “[Boston] taught me balance,” Tibbetts said. “It’s a test of how far you are willing to go to take care of another creature whether its a dog or a human. Learning how to take care of another living thing takes a lot of maturity because you have to put it before yourself. [Boston] brings me a lot of joy, happiness, and love. I love this dog more than the world, I’d do anything for him.”

As students battle deadlines, major assessments and changing trends, anxiety takes control of the brain. Since 1936, when endocrinologist Hans Selye studied an organisms ability to adapt, the term eustress has been used in psychology to describe good stress. I view stress as both good and bad, counselor James Sullivan said. Good stress is often short term that can be used to motivate you, like the stress, or excitement, you feel before playing a sporting game, preparing for a test, or before going on a first date. Bad stress is usually long term and wears you out. Over long times it can lead to anxiety.

Watching the eyes of the opposing player, sophomore Avery Nelson carefully  waits for her to decide the play. The girl’s water polo team were seated second in their district at the beginning of their season. “[Being a goalie] is very stressful,” Nelson said. “[It] feels like all the pressure is on you because youre the last line of defense, when the offensive opponents are coming at you, you always have to be on your guard. And Its very tough mentally because you always beat yourself up.”
