Our thoughts | The team played an adequate game, holding their ground against the Regents. Although they lost, there has definitely been some improvement in their offense and defense. With more practice during the season, they will have end the season with a solid record in their division.

About the Contributors
From watching sports to playing them, I have always been inclined to write about the new athletic events that occur at our school. As a sophomore at Van Nuys High, I am going into my second year of journalism, not just to write about the games, but to uncover the background and details of the talented athletes that play them. Whenever I’m not on my laptop typing about an athlete or game, I am trying to perfect leche flan.

Even though I will most likely never fulfill this dream, I could totally see myself as a florist and possibly owning a flower shop. Whenever I receive flowers I love to preserve them and keep them around as decoration. I find taking the time to arrange the flowers in a visually appealing way very calming. As a first-year senior in journalism, I am glad to say I am a photographer and I am excited to be able to capture the moments in life that everyone wants to remember. My primary interest in photography is to learn how to use a camera. If you don’t see me playing with flowers or taking pictures, I am most likely napping as that is my true number one hobby.
