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.”

Posing with the gold ball trophy, the varsity girls basketball team takes a team photo after beating Liberty Hill 42-37 in round three of the playoffs. The team will face Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial High School on Friday at 5:30 p.m in San Antonio. “I’m feeling so excited [to move on in the playoffs],” senior guard Avery Allmer said. “I feel like this is a big moral boost because we’ve lost a lot of close games and I feel like this is just a really big win for us.” Photo by Alyssa Fox

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.”

Choir sets sights on Regionals

On Sept. 29 CPHS choir hosted and competed in the district level of All-State Auditions. The choir dominated. Out of over 600 other choir students, T-wolves earned 26 of the possible 40 individual spots on the District Choir.

First year choir member sophomore Lennie Oas was anxious for her first ever district audition.

“Auditions are pretty nerve racking,” Oas said. “After you do group warm ups, there isn’t really more time to sing until your audition, so that’s hard.”

During a solo audition, there is a partition concealing the judges. The judges cannot see the contestants and only identify them by their assigned number. The only thing they can judge is the sound.  Second year choir member sophomore Chai Murthy knows what judges expect.

“Judges look for good musicality,” Murthy said. “Being able to stay on tempo is key.”

This year marks Murthy’s second district audition. The Seasons choir member attributes her very first win to lots of practice.

“We actually got work on the music in class, which is helpful,” she said.

Murthy and the rest of the choir will be practicing even more for regional auditions on Oct. 30 at Westwood High School. The choir will be learning the four audition pieces in class and at sectionals before and after school two days a week. Murthy appreciates all the extra practice, because regionals won’t be easy.

“There’s going to be a lot of tough competition,” Murthy said. “Especially since this is my first year competing, and for some girls it’s their fourth.”

  • Leslie Bonordon
