To Dunk or Not to Dunk…
Upcoming student council president Dowen Fife and senior class president Langston Goldenberg announce freshman Josh Schmidt as the winner of the Student Council’s “Once de Mayo Churro Dunk-off.” Donning a Pistol Pete jersey and a luchador mask, Shmidt stole the show when he dunked not once, not twice, but three times! The Traditions courtyard was boisterous with the sound of the crowd cheering his name, as he was voted best slam dunk by the panel of judges—former student council president Paul Treuting, Coach Earl Johnson, and Fr. Kevin Dyer, S.J.—and awarded a $25 Best Buy gift card for his victory. Students were encouraged to wear their favorite basketball jersey and enjoyed free churros and chocolate dunk sauce while they watched the dunk-off competition.

It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…It’s 3D Printed Rocket…
In the final days of senior classes senior Ryan Guillot made preparations to launch his 3D-printed rocket across Will Clark Field. Mr. Kyle White’s engineering class took to the skies after spending two weeks designing their rockets on SolidWorks Software and translating their designs to the LulzBot TAZ 6 3D printer. Made from polylactic acid (PLA) and powered by pressurized air from a bike pump, some rockets traveled the entirety of Clark Field while others fell apart on their ascent. Seniors Will Sheill and Matthew Richard were victorious with their rocket design, named “Mark I,” as it went the farthest out of the five designs tested.

“It Could Be, It Might Be…It Is! A Home Run!”
Everyone’s eyes went skyward as senior Grant Saunders hit his third home run hit in a row. The second day of Senior week was a day for eating jambalaya and hitting cabbage balls. The seniors ate jambalaya made by Mr. Bill Poynot and participated in a Cabbage Ball Home Run Derby. The rules were simple—hit as many home runs as you can before you get three strikes, then you were out! Although Saunders made a valiant effort, he was bested by classmate Dylan McKeough who hit four home runs in a row and was crowned the king of the derby.
