It's been eleven years since Ryan Weitzel lost his battle with cancer. To commemorate Ryan's memory, the Varsity Club has created this Remembering Ryan video.

Just a day after the induction of new National Honor Society members, the Tri-M Music Honor Society does the same. However, the criteria are a tad different. Terms such as half note, quarter rest, or cut time are the normal language of a member to this society. Tri-M -- formerly known as Modern Music Masters -- is designed to recognize students for their musical achievements and to provide leadership and service opportunities to young musicians. Last month, nineteen eager musicians waited in the music hallway to audition for the society. Some held guitars; while others held music to a song they were going to sing.

The game was at 5 and was and a hour away, so we got out of school at 2:15 pm and left the school at 2:45 pm. We arrived at the field at 3:50 pm. When we got there we found out we were wearing the wrong color jerseys, which no one had. We quickly had to change into what we could before we got to practicing. As soon as we figure things out we got on the field and began to warm up. There was ten minutes left until the game started.
