Starting his second lap of the race, senior Sanil Desai continues through the course at the Vista Ridge cross country invitational on Aug. 25. This was the second meet of the season and Desai finished in 19th place. “I was thinking about the team placements,” Desai said. “A lot of the schools at the Vista meet will be at districts so I was trying to pass as many people as I could, I’m mostly worried about Leander because they have an all around strong team.”

“Barbie” was released July 21 in theaters, accumulating $155 million over opening weekend. What looks to be a happy introduction with the pink Warner Bros. logo, it soon turns into a movie discussing the serious topic of feminism. “I didn’t realize that it was going to be as in-depth as it was,” biology teacher Adam Babich said. “I thought it was just a fun, campy movie and when I went and saw it I just instantly fell in love.”

Leaning back on her right, varsity tennis member junior Mia Petty prepares to receive the ball with the traditional racket swing. For student athletes, the heat has caused many changes to previously created habits involved in sport practices, but it can also be a tool, according to Petty. The heat is definitely annoying, Petty said. There are so many things that you have to do to avoid exhaustion and it feels excessive at times. [However], I think the heat further encourages me to get outside. [I want to] be exposed to the heat as much as possible so I can better acclimate to being hot and tired.

CP soccer: a dynamic duo

With May well under way, the realization of the end of 2012-2013 Cedar Park sport’s seasons has just begun to sink in. Of all the Cedar Park sports teams and their climatic journeys, girls and boys soccer had some of the most memorable seasons.

The girls’ soccer team, consisting of a considerable amount of seniors, started their journey to state after the group was declared district 51-4A champions. The team faced Crockett in the first round of playoffs and won easily with a score of 9-0. However, the third round of playoffs proved a challenge for the Lady T-Wolves as they faced district rival Vandegrift.

“It was just as important as any other playoff game,” freshman Jenna Lipscomb said. “But we had more desire and determination because they were our big rival.”

They defeated Vandegrift 1-0, ending the Vipers’ hopes for a deep playoff run. After a few hard fought games and victorious playoff rounds later, the girls advanced to the state tournament for the second year in a row.

“It felt like we were getting a second chance,” junior Kat Hill said. “It was the goal we set the first day of school and we worked our butts off to reach it.”

The Lady T-Wolves faced Highland Park, the returning state champions, in the state semi-final game. After a hard fought game, the team came up short, losing 2-1.

“It stinks losing the opportunity to win State twice, but it keeps us humble,” Hill said. “Plus, third time is the charm, right?”

The girls soccer team, however, was not the only team attempting to make history on the turf. The boys soccer team advanced to playoffs after winning district 51-4A, and moved on to become bi-district champs.

“I feel really good about our accomplishments this season,” senior Brandon Mendoza said. “I’m going to miss playing with this group of hard-working guys.”

Both award-winning teams amounted a plethora of district, and even Centex honors. Among these are Centex player of the year Kayci Griffin, Centex Defensive MVP Haleigh Maycomb, and Centex Coach of the Year Jennifer Womack.
