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.

District hockey team has high hopes for the season

     In the blazing heat of Texas, where shorts and tank tops are the accepted fashion almost year round, it is hard to imagine the elements of a traditional white winter amongst the everyday heat known so well to us. But this image is known well to the boys of the Leander ISD ice hockey team.

     The newly named team beat Austin-Westlake with a final score of 8-1 Friday, October 19, winning their first pre-season game of the 2008-2009 season. Three weeks later was their second pre-season game against Round Rock ISD’s number two team. They iced RRISD2 7-0. Winning both of these games provided a positive outlook for the LISD ice hockey team this year.

     The team is a club sport that is comprised of students from the entire school district. There are 21 players on the team with 14 reigning from Cedar Park High School.

     Though the LISD team is newly organized this year, the majority of the players have already played together. In previous years the team was called the Cedar Park ice hockey team, consisting of only members from CPHS rather than the entire school district. Because of this, the team is close knit and everyone is friends on and off the ice.

     “It’s pretty hardcore,” Albie Valicenit, sophomore, said.

     Valicenit has been playing hockey for about six years, and has been on the LISD team for two years.

     Joey Sundgren, sophomore, has been playing hockey for 11 years, but this is his first year playing on the team.

     “This season’s going to be great,” Sundgren said. “We have a good chance of getting to the playoffs, and a very good team to reach that goal.”

     LISD plays a total of 16 games this season against Austin-Westlake, RRISD2, RRISD1, and Bell Co. They play against each of these teams four times over the course of the season.

     All games and practices are held at Chapparal Ice Arena in North Austin. The team’s next game is January 15 at 8 PM against Bell Co. Bundle up and head out to heat up the rink.
