Long jump qualifiers included Kira Montgomery, junior (16 feet 5 inches) and Treyvion White-Austin, senior (23 feet 2 inches)....

Sahuaro Lost Our Own Hall of Famer

Brandon Barr, Sports Editor | May 1, 2019

Sahuaro lost a great one on April 23. Dick McConnell, Sahuaro's long time basketball coach, died in Phoenix at the age of 89. Dick McConnell left behind more than titles and a gym named after him. He left behind all the people's lives he had touched. Dick McConnell was more than a coach, he was a mentor to all those he came in contact with.  When he coached baseball, he coached former World Series...

America’s Vicarious Trauma Epidemic

Winta Tekle, Reporter | August 14, 2019

In the wake of the week-long onslaughts of mass shootings in America, I began to ponder: is America traumatized? A loaded statement, I know. But look to recent events unfolding, and then look within yourself and how they've manifested. Panic spread like wildfire August 7th in Times Square where people mistook a motorcycle backfiring for an active shooter. The video underlines a prevalent feeling...

Chance The Rapper’s New Album

Jordan Ford, Reporter | August 13, 2019

During the summer, Chance The Rapper released his new album The Big Day.  Hearing the news that he released a new album was amazing. I was very intrigued in this album since Chance has not released an album since 2016, although earlier in the year he released a song called 'GRoCERIES' featuring TisKorean and Murda Beatz. After hearing that song and then finding out he was going to have an album...

Interviews, Photographs, and Deadlines, Oh My!

Amanda Mourelatos, Reporter | August 12, 2019

Imagine a hopping newsroom with high school students, some who have never done anything journalism-related before, and some who have been involved with their journalism classes at school. Everyone typing away, snapping photos, and going in and out for interviews. Editors are conversing with their peers to check their progress and see if any assistance is needed. Mentors are going around and helping...

Meat, is it worth it?

Alais Alzaga, Reporter | August 12, 2019

Most of the U.S. population is accustomed to a meat based diet. As a matter of fact, Americans eat about 200 pounds of meat per year. But can it be harmful? Researchers have been asking this question for years. Many scientists are starting to say we may have to reconsider our food choices. The American Cancer Society says; "Twenty-two experts from 10 countries reviewed more than 800 studies to reach...

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: Day 1 Review

Andy Mourelatos, Reporter | August 14, 2019

As we stepped foot into the Star Wars themed land, it immediately felt like we'd been transported to a new world in just a few steps. Everything from trash bins, to the street lamps above had been modified to fit the new rustic yet modern feel. That's when the feeling sank in and it all really hit me. I was one of the first to experience the Galaxy's Edge. On August 15, 2015, the CEO and Chairman...

The Most Underrated Disney Channel Original Movie: Lemonade Mouth

Nathalia Valdez, Social Media & Communications | August 13, 2019

Yes, Troy Bolton was a total hottie (you know you were jealous of Gabriela), and yes the Cheetah Girls had some truly memorable moments. But one movie that's not mentioned or appreciated enough, is Lemonade Mouth. In the movie, there are many challenges faced by normal teens, living their everyday life as best they can. Stella the guitarist is faced with not only going to a new school but her...
