The Los Angeles Dodgers will play in the World Series for the second year in a row after defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Saturday night in the seventh game.

Christian Yelich put Milwaukee ahead with a solo home run in the first inning off rookie Walker Buehler. Cody Bellinger hit a two-run home run in the second that gave Los Angeles the lead. Puig added to the Dodgers’ lead with a three-run home run. He celebrated wildly going around the bases as the Dodgers made it 5-1.

“I was extremely happy when the Dodgers won because that meant they were going to the World Series,” said Anthony Sales, TCA senior. “Let’s go Dodgers!”

The girls volleyball team has been on a role since the Maywood tournament where they have won all the matchups since. The girls volleyball team is undefeated in league with a winning record of 11-0. This means elven  straight wins and absolutely no losses.

We caught up with Maryjane Vielma, varsity volleyball captain, and she said “honestly I knew we were going to be a good team”. There winning record proves this. Evidently enough, it is no secret that these ladies have been working very hard to keep this record. With consistent practices and dealing with schoolwork, these ladies have proven that volleyball is really a passion. The varsity captain mentioned that this year their team “is more connected”. They have bonded this season, and have allowed this bond to win them eleven straight games.

Maryjane mentioned that she feels “honored to be a the captain of an undefeated team”. Seniors on the girls volleyball team will leave satisfied knowing that they were undefeated. By knocking out all the competition this puts the team at advantage because they will go into playoffs with confidence and high spirits. Next years team will have big shoes to fill.

Cavs To The Finals Again?

Posted on May 20, 2018 by in Sports

The Celtics stormed to double-digit wins in the first two games of these Eastern Conference finals, and they also seemed to demoralize the Cavaliers in the process. The Cavs were frequently left with their shoulders sagging, their fingers pointing, and their effort seemingly lacking, especially considering the stage.

A series in which Cleveland had opened as the favorites had suddenly shifted to one that could send them home for the summer quite quickly.

BOX SCORE: CAVALIERS 116, CELTICS 86

For those reasons, the 116-86 massacare the Cavaliers handed to the Celtics in Saturday’s Game 3 came somewhat out of the blue. But Boston point guard Terry Rozier, for one, said it was a welcome reset.

“We needed to get our butts whipped, come back to reality, and take care of business on [in Game 4] on Monday,” he said.

Multiple People at Hollywood High School think that Lebron has another final in him but I don’t believe so.

Overall, Hollywood High Cheer has had a great season with their first competition being held at home and coming in at third place and their second competition held at Torres High School which they ranked at second, and then fighting to bring it home this past Saturday.

This past Sat. May 12, the Hollywood High School Cheerleaders had their most important competition of the season. It was the CIF League Championship and they worked very hard for weeks prior to this upcoming event. The competition was hosted at Birmingham High School for the Division 2 City League which included Crenshaw, Taft, Bell, Venice, Vaughn, Carson, Grant, and Garfield High School alongside Hollywood in order to compete and take home the first place title. At the end of the hard-fought competition, once the judges accumulated the scoresheets, it was decided who the winners were. The first place was given to Taft High School, Hollywood High School received the second place and Garfield High School ended up in third place. It was a very difficult matchup and even though the Hollywood Cheer Team came in second, they are ready for the upcoming season in hopes of claiming that first place title.

The Hollywood Cheerleaders are determined to work harder next season in order to bring home a first-place trophy as said by one of the Hollywood Cheer Captains Melanie Aguilar, “This competition season taught us that even though we thought we worked hard already, we have a long way to go. We made it all the way to CIF League Championships this year which I’m proud of but unfortunately, we couldn’t bring back a first place trophy. This just makes us want to work even harder and get more things done for next year. I think this season was an important milestone for us because we learned and realized what we need to do” Hollywood’s Cheer Team is looking forward to improving and further bettering their coordination and routines in order to compete again next year and earn the title which they’ve worked really hard for.

Hollywood High’s cheer team placed third in their first league competition last Friday, April 6. This was a huge step forward for the cheer team as this year is the first time it is considered a sport. Not only was it big that cheer now had their own league season and was now certified by CIF, but the league competition was held at Hollywood High School.

Plenty of students came to support the cheerleaders, as well as students and family from the other schools that they competed against. Some of the schools that they competed against were Wilson High, Franklin High, Bernstein High, Belmont High and Marshall High. Marshall placed second and Belmont placed first.

This placing came as a shocker to the Sheiks, “Honestly we didn’t expect to get third place, we thought we deserved better. We were really proud,” said cheer co-captain Melanie Aguilar.
