Virtually Together

Focusing on his computer, junior Aiden Seibel arranges his notes and prepares his argument for the District Cross Examination competition on Jan. 23. Him and his partner, junior Kellen Cao, placed fifth in the event. Both students are novice debaters, and this is their first year on the varsity team. “Competitions are very hard now because they’re all virtual,” Seibel said. “We don’t go to events, we just go onto our Zoom calls. I remember one experience where I was five minutes before the competition started and I was on a Zoom call with my teacher freaking out about where to go for the Zoom call because I couldn’t find the link to get to the meeting.”

The six juices each day (from left to right) consisted of Detox Greens, Pineapple Apple Mint, Sweet Greens, Spicy Lemonade, UpBeet! and Coconut Fusion. My favorite by far was the Spicy Lemonade because it tasted just like regular lemonade but with a little spiced kick.

King was awarded the regional champion medal on February 15, and according to her, her coaches and their attitudes are what helped her succeed. “Their strive for being better than great is remarkable,” King said. “They never eased up on me and always pushed me to be the absolute best. It was another standard that they expected me to achieve because they never wanted me to settle.

Taking a deep breath, senior swim captain Ashley Poulsen participates in the 100 meter butterfly event at the district meet on Jan. 17. Both the swim and dive teams ranked first in the district, and are moving onto regionals. “It is exciting knowing we won districts because we are one step closer to state,” Poulsen said. “We are anxious about how regionals will go because we have been very close in years past. Last year the boys team lost first place and got second by half a point, so it will be an exciting meet coming up.”
