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.”

JV volleyball emerges victorious

Cedar Park Volleyball season is long gone, but the memories made are all but forgotten. The Junior Varsity volleyball team, comprised of sophomores and juniors, ended the season 22-2 and were named District Champs. One of the highlight games in the team’s season was when the Lady T-Wolves defeated Georgetown in a preseason tournament.

 “It was such an intense game,” sophomore setter Kirstyn Conwell said. “We were neck and neck with them.  I remember having to serve when the score was 23-24; it was crazy.”

Sophomore outside hitter Samantha Corey was also under pressure to succeed.

“I had old friends that played for Georgetown,” Corey said. “It was nice being able to beat them with my team.”

Corey led the team in kills. Some of the other season’s leaders include Mackenzie Dunnehoo in assists, Dana Teets in digs, Lexi Breed in blocks and Evyn Robertson in aces.

The team not only worked well together on the court but off the court as well.

“Our team has had amazing chemistry, ever since the seventh grade,” Conwell said. “We all just really understand each other and we bond a lot.”

Sophomore middle blocker Kaylin Balderrama agreed.

“We all became sisters and best friends,” Balderrama said. “Everyone was really accepting, we didn’t really have any team drama.”

Another key component to the team’s success was the new JV coach, Sydney Teuton.

“She was an amazing coach,” Balderrama said. “She was the reason I had the confidence to keep playing when I was feeling down.”

For many volleyball girls, club season has begun, but high school season is greatly missed.

“I miss being able to play volleyball with my favorite people,” Conwell said. “Now we’re all into our club seasons and it’s so different not having them by my side on the court.”

Next year, the team will be a combination of new and returning members.

“I miss playing together, but I look forward to next season because we will have new teammates,” Balderrama said.
