As you have probably heard many seniors say, first semester of senior year is one of the most difficult times in high school. Many seniors during this time period are stressing over college applications and trying to balance that with their regular course load and finish their SAT or ACT exams. Very few have this college weight lifted off their shoulders; however, committed athletes earn that relief of stress early in their senior year. Two committed athletes that are both playing soccer in college are Emily Vinick and Sean Ryan.

By now,  many of you have heard of the girls swim team breathtaking accomplishment. Girls swim had won their 100th straight swim meet on January 30th, which took over a course of six seasons. Apparently, the only anxious moment of their 100th win was when one of the critical swimmers, Hannah Womer, a 10th grader, was running late to the meet.

I was waiting at cougar field on a cold Sunday morning not sure of what to expect. I had never been in any organization or club like Sports Buddies before. Chatham Sports Buddies is a club at our School where we help autistic kids play sports and train to eventually participate in a run at the end of the school year.
