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.

      There’s no doubt that walking into a home belonging to sports lovers from April 22 to April 25, that one would find them glued to the television. During these long April days, the 2010 National Football League Draft takes place and the fate of teams, players and fans everywhere is decided.

     These three days are some of the most crucial in the entire football season as they determine both a player’s and a team’s future. If teams select the right bundle of players for their organization, it could mean a trip to the playoffs for the first time in six years. On the other hand, if a team isn’t careful who they accept into their team it could mean disaster once the season begins.

     Like every other draft, hundreds of universities and high school’s are represented through the players who are invited to attend, and the player’s who are in fact good enough to be drafted. One of those lucky schools represented in the 2010 NFL draft, was our very own Cedar Park High School.

     Tim Knicky graduated from Cedar Park in 2006.While at Cedar Park he went All-District in his senior year, and today he still holds the Cedar Park record for sacks in a single game and in a season. After graduation, Knicky moved on to Stephen F. Austin University (SFA) where he played college football. During his time at SFA, he received the honor of All Southland Conference (the conference SFA belongs to) in his senior year, and within his college career, started 28 out of 33 games.

     Fast forward to the draft, once all seven rounds were completed, there were still players known as “free agents” awaiting a team to call them with an offer. It was Knicky’s lucky day when the Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy called him, offering him a contract as a defensive end (details of the contract were not available at this time). Green Bay is an amazing opportunity for Knicky. So much history lies within the gates at Lambeau Field. Vince Lombardi, who coached the Packers from 1959-1967, guided them to two Super Bowl victories, and had the Super Bowl trophy named after him. The team was also the long-time home of number four, Brett Favre. Favre was the Packers quarterback from 1992-2008, and led them to a Super Bowl XXXI win.

     Knicky has had a great start to his career with an impressive team, and we look forward to seeing what he brings to Lambeau Field in 2010.
