Smiling for a picture, senior identical twins Ethan and Drew pose with a statue of a parrot mascot. The twins will both attend the University of Arkansas in the fall and major in business. “I didnt really mind going to different colleges, but we had the same [college] choices,” Ethan said. “We both liked Arkansas, and I dont mind him coming with me. If we cant get [a] rooming situation down, were just going to do a quad together. Which Im kind of down for a quad, because there is more room.” Photo courtesy of Drew O’Conner

Standing on the drum major’s platform, senior twin sisters Abby and Courtney McDanald pose for a picture. This fall, Abby will attend the University of Texas at Austin to study nursing and Courtney will major in theater education at Stephen F. Austin University. “I was definitely sad about [attending different universities] because weve been so close,” Abby said. “Being that far away from someone for a long time will be hard. We didnt do it on purpose, we just wanted different things in schools. Its definitely sad, but I think itll make seeing her more special.” Photo courtesy of Abby McDanald

Parking Lot Attendant Alan Gallagher poses next to his sign notifying that students can no longer purchase parking passes. Students without passes will not be able to park in the school parking lot, and if they do, AP’s will be notified. ““[When I catch people skipping] I notify the students AP and from there Im not sure what happens,” Gallagher said. “[I can also stop people for] speeding through the parking lot [since] the speed limit is 10 mph on campus.”

Following through, senior Kade Davis throws a pitch in the game against Lockhart on March 26. Davis threw the first no hitter in Timberwolf Baseball history that night as the team won 15-0. “I was pumped, our team was pumped, everybody was happy, and we were winning the ball game,” Davis said. ““During the game I tried not to think about it because youre not supposed to think about a no hitter while youre still in the game or you could jinx it. I was just worried about winning the game, I didn’t care so much about the no hitter during the game, I just wanted to win.” Photo by Jim Cowlishaw

Smiling for the camera, Junior Adhit Eswaramoorthi and his fellow DECA member Justin Khadivi and Aryan Anarkat as they stay in their room during the state competition in Houston. Eswaramoorthi, Anarkat, and Rushil Mehta participated in the event Franchise Business Plans and advanced to the DECA International Competition. “I think being in DECA and talking to different people from different schools allowed me to expand how I view and go about meeting new people, Eswaramoorthi said. Which connects to robotics and the work ethic you have to have.

CPHS Winter Guard
Hands high in the air and cheering in front of the PAC, Varsity Winter Guard gives one last goodbye before they headed off to the Reid Arena in College Station where they would end up placing fourth at their state competition. Sophomore Tiffany Ly says state was an experience she’ll never forget. “I know that our team has put so much hard work into everything and it’s just genuinely so cool to see the show put together,” Ly said. “But our staff and our chaperons really help put the show together as well, helping lift us up, bring stuff that we need and support from the band is also really great.”

A subtle melody breaks the air as the crowd waits in anticipation. Without warning, flags fly gracefully through the air in a flurry of color and madness. The crowd can’t look away as the Winter Guard squadron gives one last hurrah before heading off to UIL State.

Winter Guard has been prepping for UIL State since the beginning of December 2023 after finishing marching season with the band. Every morning, Winter Guard practices in the cafeteria before the day of their big competition. Before they head off, Winter Guard put on one last performance on April 3. Sophomore Tiffany Ly says the theme for this final performance focuses around the theme of space, galaxies, and the ever expanding void that we call home.

“It’s really interesting how the beginning of the performance draws the audience in and being enlightened by space and being sucked into the void and everything,” Ly said. “And then around the halfway mark, our soul catches and everything just turns into pure rage and anger, and that’s really fun to perform.”

Winter Guard then headed out to College Station where they performed in the Reid Arena and ended up placing fourth at state. before heading back home just in time for prom.

“It ended as quickly as it started,” Ly said. “Since we went early the crowd wasn’t huge but the energy was definitely still there. Retreat was also like a fever dream and being able to interact with other guards and cheer them on really shows the support guards will give each other. Being able to stand there with our team and just take in what we achieved and just celebrate really reminds me why I love colorguard.”
