Restaurant Review: Eating at Max's is more than just everyday eating

Image
Restaurant Review This weekend on Sunday, my family celebrated my mom's birthday as well as Mother's Day. We decided to go on the casual route and eat at Max's Eatery in the city. 

Max's is a breakfast, lunch and dinner diner. We went there for dinner at 6:30. When we arrived we were greeted by very friendly employees and brought to our table. The menus were on the table so we got to ordering right away. 
We started with drinks. My mom and brother got milkshakes, and I got an iced tea. 
When it came time to order I went back and forth between a burger on waffles and waffle with sausage and gravy. I decided on the burger sandwiched between waffles and it was definitely a great choice. My mom got a patty melt, my brother got the same as me, and my dad got a form of chili. 
Overall, the food was great but the atmosphere was even better. The glowing max's sign made the whole restaurant feel very relaxed. The hustle and bustle of the employees, however, created a nice c…

Girls Lacrosse ends on high note with Kelsey Kimmel scoring 100th goal of season

Image
The Lampeter-Strasburg Girls Lacrosse season came to an end on Thursday, May 2 in their final game against Cedar Crest. Both the JV and varsity teams won, making it a great way to end the season.

This game was a great matchup overall with Kelsey Kimmel scoring her 100th goal of the season. Hayley Phenegar, captain of the JV team, played her first varsity game as well as scored her first varsity goal. Maggie Visniski, a freshman defender, played her second varsity matchup.


These great achievements lead to the varsity team playing Manheim Township at Conestoga Valley for playoffs. Both the JV and varsity team has received many compliments from the crowd about their sportsmanship and their ability to work together as a team. The team has even recieved compliments about how they act on the sidelines. The L-S girls lacrosse cheers each other on whether they are losing or having a great game. They are often found cheering each other's names, tumbling on the sidelines, and even dancing a…

Study body celebrates a year of hard work with Clash of the Classes

Image
Keystone prep. SATs. Finals looming in the distance. Spring sports coming to a close. Prom. Graduation. Walking through the hallways, you can almost feel ropes of stress strung taught between everyone you encounter. Needless to say, everyone could use a break.

Clash of the Classes granted everyone with just that.

On Friday afternoon, the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade classes at Lampeter-Strasburg High School went head-to-head in a series of fun-filled activities, ranging anywhere from a sidewalk chalk competition to street hockey. The class who earned the most points would relish in the prize to come:
Rita's Italian Ice


To start off the events, the entire student body gazed on in excitement as tug-of-war filled the gym with an infectious buzz. I'll give you one guess as to which class took the gold. Though there was an air of animalistic competition, you couldn't help but feel a sense of togetherness.


The freshmen class, in blue, watches on as the sophomore class, in red…

Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: "I Wake Up" by Ian Herr

Image
"I Wake Up" By Ian Herr
I wake up out my window the sun shines
I leave my bed grab my favorite ball the old faded beat up outdoor ball
It’s the perfect day sunny no wind I call my friends they come over fast and a game begins
Shouts and laughs echo throughout the driveway the pounding of the ball against concrete is heard everywhere in the cul de sac
I throw the ball to an open friend and soon hear the satisfying swish of the ball
sliding through the net

Roll Pios! Baseball section champs once again

Image
It was a cold, brisk, Monday night baseball game at home for the Lampeter-Strasburg Pioneers as they faced off against the Elizabethtown Bears. With clinching the Section on the line for the Pioneers, the intensity was high and focus was on point. With the Pioneers winning the Section 21 times in history, another one was in the horizon. 

With only one loss on the season, and highly ranked in the state, the 2019 Section Champs was within reach. The Bears were off to a rough start as L-S pitcher Dylan Byler, was sitting kids down up and early throughout the entire game. 

With key hits from Thomas Shockey, with a booming home run, and other stinger hits from the team, the Pios came to the last inning.


The E-Town bears finally scored a run in the last inning, but that's all that happened until the Lampeter Strasburg Pioneers won the Section Title of 2019! With the 12 strong skilled seniors, untouchable Juniors, and two talented Sophomores, the Pioneers, skill continue their run for the …
