Senior executive editor Natalie Murray, senior associate editor Lily Cooper and junior designer Ava Eaton all sit in conversation with recent clients. After the completion of the Parks and Trails Foundation logo, representatives visited the T-Wolf Agency to provide thanks for all the work done. “I know how beneficial it is to be able to work with clients,” Murray said. “We had a previous executive editor come back and tell us how good of an opportunity it is to have this agency here especially if you want to go into graphic design after high school. The people she’s in classes with didn’t have any access to the things we do here and theres only one other LISD school that has a class like this. It’s just a really good opportunity to get real world experience especially when we get to work with people outside the school. It’s just so real to get that experience with actual clientele and how things really work in the industry.”

Carefully balancing one piece of paper over another, junior Ryder Wilkinson builds a paper tower with his team at the Architecture Club’s second meeting. Ryder said he was interested in architecture in the past, but the Architecture Club allowed him to get back into it and learn new things. “I [won] one of the competitions, the first one that we had,” Wilkinson said. “[In the second competition] we lost [because] we could not build a tall enough tower that could withstand the blow of a powerful fan, [but] I still had fun because I was with my friends.”

A few of my favorite movies of this month are shown in this image. I had to limit myself to only two Andy Samberg movies, otherwise the graphic looks more like a memorial.

Pictured above is the crafting club social media page that junior Makena Filippoff and sophomore James Morris-Hodges created. The crafting club was created to allow students to have an opportunity to learn how to create different kinds of crafts and to collaborate with other students interested in crafting. “I love to do crafts but I find myself feeling lonely when doing crafts,” Filippoff said. “With no one to share my ideas or experiences with, it can get boring. I wanted to get a group of people that have an interest in learning [and] doing crafts to be able to have fun and socialize while crafting.”

Cedar Park blasts Vandegrift with whiteout and black rain

The Timberwolf varsity football team (6-2, 4-0) secured their place in playoffs last Friday night in a 20-12 win against Vandegrift (4-5, 2-3) at Ed Monroe Memorial Stadium.

The 20-12 victory was a closer match than usual for the Timberwolves, who saw an 8-point lead in contrast to their average of 17.

Despite the dwindling lead, the Timberwolves clinched a playoff berth. The offense has proven their lead against the rest of the District 25 4-A teams with a four-win streak.

“We were supposed to make it to playoffs,” senior Roger Welch said. “And we have.”

Junior quarterback Nathan Grimm shattered the second school record in a row, completing 12 of 16 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns.

In the last two games, junior Samuel Brock has established a Timberwolf advantage for deep passing. Brock, who caught an 80-yard touchdown last week for the longest pass in school history, received a 64-yard pass from Grimm for a touchdown in the first half.

Brock attributes accomplishments on the field to progress in practice.

“We condition a lot, so we always have energy on the field,” Brock said. “Touchdowns get me excited for the next game.”

Senior Nathan Harwell caught a 33-yard pass in the second half to bring the Timberwolves to a 14-3 lead.

Another pass from Grimm to senior Ethan Fry established the Timberwolves’ last of the 20 points, but the Vipers blocked the extra point and returned it 96 yards for two points.

T-shirts sold this week boasted whiteout conditions mixed with black rain, which is just what the defense delivered.

Junior Sean Angle caught an interception at the 42-yard line after Cedar Park was forced to punt with two timeouts remaining.

“Defense played as a team,” Angle said. “All did our part to shut them down.”

In their blackout game, the Vipers were stopped by Black Rain defense from all sides. They completed their lone touchdown in the fourth quarter with a halfback-pass from quarterback Jamie Hudson to Dylan Hosek.

Cedar Park continues in district play as they face Vista Ridge (7-1, 3-1) this Friday at Gupton Stadium.
