Ariana Grande released “eternal sunshine” on Mar. 8 along with a music video for her track “we can’t be friends.” With smooth instrumentals, melodic vocals and complex lyrics, I give this album a 9/10 stars.

Catching a ball, junior Alivia Robinson plays at the Cedar Park vs Glenn game. Having played since she was 5 years old, she is dedicated to softball and has committed to UTPB for softball. “When I got my offer it took me a very long time to decide where,” Robinson said. “Softball has always been my dream for college, and UTPB is my fit. When [I committed] I knew I was going to be loved and supported.”

I got a round of applause in the middle of the show for a moment that I am very proud of.”

Posing with their “Featured Yearbook” banner, signifying that the 2022-2023 yearbook is used as an example for other yearbook classes, the yearbook team smiles at the camera. Yearbooks have been on sale for $80 all school year, with 90 left in stock. “Im really happy with this book,” content editor and senior James Sanderson said. “I think other people are going to be happy with it; all our pages look really cute. Issues are a thing, but we have them every single year and we dont let them get in the way. We work on a very, very tight schedule and theres no pushing deadlines back. It’s a lot of fun, though. It is such an amazing staff and a very engaging team. Its very fulfilling work.” Photo courtesy of Paige Hert

Varsity volleyball finishes season united

 

The Lady Timberwolf varsity volleyball team made their mark at state semifinals. The girls made it to the 2012 Texas Girls State Volleyball Playoff Bracket in UIL. With their goal to play in the state tournament within their grasp, the team lost their final game to Lucas Lovejoy by two points.

“Considering we were one game away from our goal, I’m definitely satisfied to have made it so far,” junior outside hitter and back row player Hailey Roberts said.

Roberts was named Offensive Player of the Year for District 25-4A. She finished the season with 429 kills, 99 serving aces and six assists.

Seniors Hope Lemon, Linda Steinhardt and Tessa Danhert were named first team all-district. Mattie Snyder and Emily Grant were named second team all-district. Stats for the team include 1225 kills, 224 serving aces, 158 total blocks, 1372 digs, 1003 assists, 1569 serving receive successes.

“After working hard in off season, we took everything one game at a time,” middle blocker Snyder said. “Most of us have been playing together since freshman year, but we bonded even more at every game.”

Senior leadership and friendship set a standard early on in the season and carried on throughout the weeks.

“This season was by far the most enjoyable,” Roberts said. “We had team bonding prior to the season at Kirby Lane and threw a team sleepover. It helped by uniting the team and eliminating the usual gossip.”

As stated by Roberts, communication is essential to teamwork both on and off the court.

“It was an awesome season,” middle blocker Danhert said. “There were no fights and we accomplished all of our goals. This season, we really made an impact with our determination.”

At the end of the season, the team was 41-8-0 overall and 11-2-0 in league. Their rank was 85 in the nation and 20 in the state.

“The seniors were close knitted and set an example for the entire team,” Roberts said. “Next year, we’re going to step up and take the leadership. I would be watching for Dana Teets next season.”

As the seniors move on and the new players rise, the Lady Timberwolves plan to continue the tradition of a united and determined team.
