Runner commits to Ivy League university

Senior Gwyneth Young committed to the University of Pennsylvania, to compete in cross-country and track & field, on Sept. 7. Young will be looking to earn her MBA in economics, with a focus in entrepreneurship or real estate, and possibly minor in German. “It feels crazy to be honest,” said Young. “It all happened too fast, but I’m so excited.” Young’s success granted her offers from UPenn, Harvard, Duke, Notre Dame, Temple, Oregon, and Michigan State. Young chose Penn for not only the athletic opportunity, but also the chance to learn at the Wharton School of Business. “I choose Penn because of all it had to offer,” said Young. “The coaches had so much excitement and faith in what I could b

College visits go virtual

College visits may be looking a little different than normal this year. As a result of COVID-19, many schools have had to adapt and adjust their college visits to follow safety precautions. Mass open houses for schools are now no longer an option, so schools have had to turn to virtual platforms. Some schools, depending on size and location, may have an option of an individual visit, but many are unable to have that opportunity. This year things are tough but the most important thing is making sure you will get the proper education. “Hanging out with friends, enjoying campus life, and going to football games are a large part of the college experience which can’t easily happen right now,” sai

Prom-posals drop in popularity

photo provided by Alivia Serenita Over the last few years, many students have been asked to dances in an extravagant way, flowers, posters, even light up messages have all been ways that students pop the question to their dates. Although these prom-posals were extremely popular and almost considered necessary for past proms, the trend has all but died out this year. Instead of making big displays of affection the week before tickets go on sale, students asked each other casually over Snapchat and made date arrangements in prom group chats. “It just felt a lot easier and more comfortable to figure it out in the group chat,” said senior Madison Menser, who will be going to prom with Trey Erdma

Outdoorsman pursues wildlife career

photo by Sully Minnick From the time he was young, senior Derrick Via has enjoyed nature through hunting and fishing. Now, Via has chosen a major that will allow him to both work directly with nature and ensure that it will continue to be accessible in the future: Wildlife Technology. Via will attend Penn State Dubois for Wildlife Technology. This major is centered around natural resource management, wildlife biology, range management and more. “When I went to Wildlife Leadership Academy, we had a visit to [Penn State Dubois] and we met with the professors, we talked about the program, what it entails,” said Via. “I got a whole outline of all the courses and everything and I decided that’s w

Tennis sports top players

photo by Alivia Serenita With two boys ranked consistently at the top of the ladder, the boys’ tennis team is expecting nothing but success this spring season. Senior Jackson Muraika is ranked first in singles, for the third year in a row, while junior Dylan Tull has been ranked second for the past three year. Muraika was also ranked second in his freshman year. Tull is overcoming an injury from last spring where he broke his wrist after playing in the team’s third match, putting him out for the remainder of the season. “I’m hoping for a great run by the team and myself individually and I feel like we have a great chance at finishing well league-wise and district-wise,” said Tull. The team h

Apple launches new iPhone update

Many people are buzzing about the new update for iPhones, IOS 14. The biggest change that people were raving about, was home-screen customizations. There are now widgets available that can be added to this screen. There is an endless amount of possibilities with these. Some people have pictures, the date, and the time, to name a few. I put the date and a couple pictures as my home-screen. There is also options to change what the apps look like, but I didn’t use this. In order to do this, you have to make short cuts. This means when you click the app it goes to the shortcuts app, then the actual app you want to use. I would prefer to just click the app and go straight to it, so I haven’t util

Staffer weighs track against a job

Many students, like myself, are faced with the challenge of managing time, money and responsibilities throughout the school year. This became an issue for me when I was deciding between doing track and field or getting a job this spring. I weighed out my pros and cons and made a decision to stick with track. I knew I couldn’t give up track my senior season, but the idea of having extra money was very tempting. Especially with the things coming up as a senior like prom, senior week and summer vacation. I thought of getting a job not only to have money but also with the hopes that I would have more free time. I was thinking I could work, but not every day. Of course, we all know how tough work
