The last time the boys’ tennis won a section championship, coach Mike Rohrbach was on the team. That was 25 years ago.

“It feels great because it’s a feat that no other Cedar Crest tennis team has done in 25 years, but I know there are bigger things in store for our team,” said senior number one singles’ player and captain Jack Muraika.

Muraika was correct in his prediction as the Falcons captured the Lanca...

Towards the end of winter break I began to come to a realization that I finally was ready for a tattoo.

While college is a first taste of living independently, most people are still close enough to come home in an emergency.

However, senior Rory Zimmel decided to cut out this geographical safety net by attending college at Brighton University in England to study music business and media.

Despite the drastic gap between her family and her future college, Zimmel is not worried about the change of pace.


As the final major fundraising event comes to a close, one class made a huge monetary impact. This year, Mrs. Gingrich’s classes raised the most money totaling over $800 for Relay For Life.

“I take great pride in putting a lot of effort and getting my kids excited about this event,” said Gingrich. “Knowing that it goes to a lot of people for a great cause makes my heart happy.”

After an underdog victory last year, seniors must forfeit a possible double victory at Powder Puff due to its cancelation.

Powder Puff is the annual senior v. junior flag football game played by the girls of the respective classes. The football player’s coach the team, and the cheerleaders train an all-boys squad to perform at halftime.

Scheduling complications led to the cancellation of Powder Puff, which means junior and senio...

When a team of the best mathematical minds in the school put in tremendous effort and pooled together their skills, they accomplished something great.

On April 12th, seniors Emily Bixler, Viraj Govani and Aidan Hanley and junior Dominique Smith-Rodriguez competed against 60 other competitors from 15 other schools in the Millersville High School Math Contest.

With combined individual and team scores, the team ranked first place i...

Every year, math teacher Carin Marzock allows her students to participate in Relay for Life, but this year the event really hits home for her on a personal level.

Marzock’s sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer this school year, and has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment since her diagnosis.

“It’s just not something you expect for someone in their mid-thirties to be fighting,” said Marzock.

Luckily Marzock’s sister-i...
