Writing is more than just words being typed onto a screen or written with a pencil. It is a way to express what’s boiling within the deep chambers of yourself that you never thought you could explore. Whether it is writing an essay for a class you hate, a story you imagined in your head or anything else. All of the words, thoughts and feelings are coming from you. It’s your writing and nobody can change it.

So why not take your thoughts and share it with other who are just as passionate about expressing theirs? The newspaper club is back and better than ever ! Join the club that gives you the opportunity to write whatever you feel is best for you and have other people read your pieces through a screen of a phone or computer. A club that is also surrounded by people who you can gain literature inspiration from. A club where through the newspaper experience you can recognize and pursue your love for writing.

If you are interested, email or come to Room 119 on Wednesdays after school.

Athletes of the Week: 5/2/16-5/6/16

By Henry Hutchinson, Class of 2019 

Congratulations to the current athletes of the week.

The female Athlete of the Week is softball player Brianna Vaughn. Brianna had a monster week at the plate recording the first three home runs of her career. She also had a batting average of about .500 which included two doubles and 8 RBI’s. Vaughn’s recent power surge has helped propel the softball team to an outstanding 13-2 record on the season.

“I was really excited (when I found out I had been named Athlete of the Week),” Vaughn said, “because Coach nominated me before, and I have been working really hard.” 

The male Athlete of the Week is tennis player Jordan Stoner. Jordan had an upset victory over Hightstown in the first round of the Mercer County tournament and a solid performance against one of the county’s top players in the second round. Jordan also had a dominating performance against Steinert winning 6-0 for his team.

“This award is a great honor because there are so many great athletes in our school, and I was chosen,” Stoner said. “It’s good to recognize athletes’ hard work.”

Once again, congratulations from the EHS Coaching staff.

AOW for April 25-29

By Ryan Webster, Class of 2019
Congratulations to the athletes of the week for April 25-29, 2016.

The female Athlete of the Week is varsity softball player Alexis Pope, a junior, who racked up seven hits in four games the previous week against Lawrence, Montgomery, Nottingham, and Steinert high schools. Of those seven hits, two were doubles and one was a home run. Pope also brought in 8 RBIs during that week. Alexis is a strong force offensively and defensively at third base, a position she has had since freshman year.

”Being named athlete of the week is something I think you should be proud of,” Pope said. “I think being named athlete of the week is really cool and it is an honor.”  

The male Athlete of the Week is track and field runner Rashawn Williams. In addition to currently leading his team in dual meet points this season with 31, Williams hasn’t been beat in an open 400 meter race yet this season. He also continues to achieve a personal record every time he runs a race. Williams, who has earned the most medals amongst this teammates this year, is a mainstay on all the sprint relay teams this season. A large portion of the team success this season can be attributed to Rashawn’s constant effort and eagerness to run as many races as he can in a meet, his coaches said.

“I think being named athlete of the week is a huge achievement. I was very shocked when I found out I got named,” Rashawn said. 

Congrats again from the EHS coaching staff.
