The last Leesville High School game was the biggest game of all. Everyone was chanting for the team. And then all the sudden… BOOM, the football team came out and the fans were crazy. My family and I were sitting down and then we seen my brother #63 running out ready to play his last game. As everyone sat down they had t-shirts to throw out into the crowd. The shirts were gold and black, with the picture of the Wampus cat the school mascot. The people in the crowd were loud and never stopped dancing, and waving the banners in the air.

The Hornets felt like Flanagan had to be in an easy seed. The Hornets had played to the 4th quarter and decided to put the second string in. The Hornets came out with a win 46- 31. The Hornets were 3rd in state. The Hornets were so happy they all went out on the court and started jumping. They boys had gotten a trophy and medals. Matt was the point leader in that game with having his threes spot on. Matt was in tears winning that game and having his team come all this way. The boys were heading home with a fire truck and cop flashing lights and making noise at 8;30 at night on a Saturday. The Hornets were in the newspaper from their victory and effort. The Hornets were on a float in the parade and got cheered on by everyone they went by. After all the effects from winning state everyone was sad that it’s over, but they knew they could attack state next year. Matt was a huge part of the team. He was an excellent shooter and defender. He was a great captain to the team and also the best focused person to the game. The Hornets had done an excellent job making this far in basketball and everyone was proud of them.

Last Tuesday evening saw a marvelous sight: nearly the entire Mid-County Surf Blue soccer team, 11- and 12-year-old boys, came to the Board of Director's monthly meeting along with their parents. They came to protest the Board's barring of their coach Sean Clark from the upcoming season. Several of them stood up in front of the Board and the nearly 40 other attendees and spoke in support of their coach, telling the Board how much Sean and the team meant to them, and imploring the Board to reconsider their decision. We parents spoke as well, but it was the boys' testimony and pleas that shone that night. We parents added our voices as well to those of the boys, asking the Board to act promptly. We are all still
I was discouraged by his abandonment of the team. I decided to never leave a game no matter the score. Although to no surprise, Kansas won. I could not believe it. A stream of tears began to run down my face as I ran up the stairs to deliver the horrible news to my father, who was disappointed but not surprised. I sprawled out onto the floor dispirited and let out a cry for longer than the baby had. My father made an attempt to stop me, but my sadness was not to be argued with. Today, I laugh at the story, impressed by the amount of passion and importance I held in a simple game.

It was the late in the fourth quarter and the Broncs were about to win another state championship making it two years in a row. There was 20 seconds on the clock and the Broncs were up 49-28 on the Natrona County Mustangs. All we needed to do was take a knee, and sheridan would take home their 25th football state title. The ball was snapped and instead of taking a knee, they ran it with running back Kyle Kustis for another bronc touchdown to make the win 56-28. The block that opened up the hole was offensive tackle and my brother, Blayne Baker. After that night we all went home to celebrate the state championship. The next morning I could barely talk. My throat was throbbing from cheering so loud. “Do you want some pancakes?” my sister, Baylee,

Coach Aaker proceeded to tell us that he had passed away late last night. Everyone was in shock and just sat there. Coach tried to talk but he battled tears.

When people hear the word “forensics” it evokes a mindful of graphic, vibrant images that bring about death and crime. It’s a trigger word that reminds people of gore, autopsies, DNA, death investigations, and bullet holes. This word means so much more than just those few examples of what forensics hold. Forensics is such a broad term- it is “scientific tests or techniques used in connection with the detection of a crime”, so with that given definition forensics could mean many different things. You could go from someone who works as the forensic computer technician who can hack into a sexual predator’s hard drive in the matter of seconds to a forensic anthropologist who studies bones in a legal case.
