Last week the Outdoor Rec students got introduced to the basics of fishing. Teacher Dan Buchanan took them out to the soccer field to learn how to cast a rod. On the second day of fishing, Mr. Buchanan took them out to the school’s pond named “Fred” to practice throwing their lines into the actual pond.   Over the weekend the students had some homework for the following week. They had to bring in live bait so they could start fishing for actual fish the following week.   “I didn’t want to have to dig up worms from the ground so I went to Jack’s Pets and bought a dozen worms there. I had to refrigerate them overnight and after using them each day they have to be refrigerated,” senior Emily Baker said.   When the students brought in their bait they had to put it on the hook themselves and if they caught anything, take it off the hook themselves. Photo courtesy of Abbey Baker

Seniors Leah Brod, Emily Spry, and Kathryn Tenbarge taking their bow. “I have been on the team with these two girls for years and have gotten really close with them so it is going to be really hard to not be dancing with them next year,” Brod said. “We do everything together.”

“This past year was my first year dancing. Before this I was a cheerleader since kindergarten but I have really enjoyed the Flyerettes.  I am really excited for the new coach and to hear her new ideas and to see what she has in store for us this season,” said Davis. Photo courtesy of McDaniel’s Photography.

“One of my other highlights of being on the Flyerettes was definitely the basketball games. I loved dancing at all the games during pre-game and halftime. I also liked how we got to do pom, jazz, and hip hop all in one routine which was different,” Brod said. (Far right) Photo courtesy of McDaniel’s Photography.

“Now that the basketball season is over there is a lot less stress on us a team but we also have to prepare for next year which is also stressful within itself,” said Young.  The girls will be holding multiple fundraisers in the next couple months to raise money for costumes for next season. It will include a car wash and a bake sale.
