The awaited Powder Puff game is now here. Come support the girls in their match this Friday.

Powder Puff unlike other football games has a unique twist. This time, instead of our ordinary guy football players, we will see girls attacking the field. Guys will take up the cheerleader’s places and take a break from the field.

In preparation for the game, both boys and girls have been practicing very hard after school. The guys received help from cheer to help with their movements and dances while the girls received help from the football guys and teachers.

In this game, seniors will go against juniors. One class against another. Come support the girls in their performance and also see the spirit squad perform. Tickets will only be 3$.

Come workout with the volleyball girls

Looking to try out for volleyball next school year or just want to get that summer body? Come condition with the volleyball girls after school at 3:30.

Their work-outs consist of a series of squats, jumping, planks and running, and other drills that are significant for volleyball. Since tryouts are so soon and there is barely anytime when school starts to work out, conditioning now will be beneficial and can give you an upper hand, instead of getting tired so quickly during try-outs.

Conditioning usually ends no later than 5:00 and if you stay long enough, Coach Beverly Kilpatrick will begin to teach the girls the fundamentals of volleyball, like bumping. You don’t have to have past experience to practice after school, which is cool too because it is a good learning experience.

There will also be some practices in late July for people who want to get better before tryouts and for freshmen looking to try-out. Practicing during the summer will not give you a guaranteed spot in the team.

For more information, talk to Coach Beverly Kilpatrick in the gym after school at 3:30

Sheik-A-Thon was a great success yet again this year with over 70 students who attended.

The event was held on April 22 on Saturday. All students had to report to the Orange gate in order to be taken by a school bus in order to be taken to hike all the way up to the Hollywood sign.

 

“It was really fun although I’m very tired because I was out of shape” said Senior Pedro Perez.

 

Overall the hike is to get students to get up and active and they have been doing this for 5 years now so the Sheik-A-Thon is starting to become a trending thing here at Hollywood.

Leadership first scheduled the 2017 Spring Dance to February 18, however due to unforeseen circumstances it was postponed to April 1.

Unfortunately, the dance has been canceled completely due to lack of ticket sales.

More Life Worth Your Life

Aubrey Graham known as Drake, had dropped his album More Life on Saturday evening. The album was in fact highly anticipated and by most critics come out to say that the album is not what everyone anticipated it to be. The R&B artist released the album holding a whopping number of 22 songs and throughout all of them many find 5 songs on the album the best.

Names of songs go as followed Free Smoke, Long Talk, PassionFruit, Jorjas Interlude, Get It Together, Madiba Riddim, Sacrifices, Portland, Blem, 4422, Gyalchester, Skepta Interlude, Nothing Into Something’s, Teenage Fever, KMT, Lose You, Glow, Can’t Have Everything, Since Way Back, Fake Love, Ice Melts, and Do Not Disturb. Now out of all the songs best ones would be Passionfruit, Sacrifices, Portland,Fake Love, and Since Way Back. The album was mostly Drake realizing he’s reached his peak and he is in a stage of his career where he wants to experiment with different sounds along with flow, that are more towards a reggae sound than his original downbeat feel where you would think about life. The 29 year old artist is still one of the best out right now but this album on a 5 star scale many have gave it a solid 3. Hopefully next year it can be better and Drake can stay in his roots.
