MS girls basketball crush Greenfield, 59-12

Written by Brandon Hutton, The Eagle Senior Writer

Obama girls’ basketball had a home game against Greenfield yesterday. Although they didn’t win the tip off, they dominated every other aspect.

After a few missed shots by both teams, Obama opened up the scoring with a lay-up. Shortly after that, they scored another lay-up, and another, and another, with a three here and there. The ball just stopped crossing the half court line for a good three minutes of the first period. The defense surrounded the player on Greenfield who had the ball and either forced a jump-ball or forced a turnover. The Obama girls’ dominated the rebounds and had multiple offensive rebounds, if needed. By the end of the half, it was 37-5.

The third period started off sloppy for the girls. They were turning it over and Greenfield screwed a few points in succession.  Even with that, Obama’s offense was still scoring.  The team turned it around at the start of the fourth quarter with their usual domination. The turnovers became rare and the team steamrolled ahead with a lot better field goal percentage, too. In the end, they won 59-12.

Drawing Practice Club is a great opportunity for artists

Written by Victoria Volpe, The Eagle Staff Writer

Located in the basement, room 30, Ms. Hetrick’s Drawing Practice Club is a laid back quiet class. The students practice their skills by free drawing. Ms. Hetrick is very devoted to expanding the abilities of the students. She hates tracing and reprimands anybody she catches cheating. One of the practices included drawing self-portraits from mirrors. “Don’t draw eyes that are in your mind, but the ones in the mirror,” Ms. Hetrick states, as the students struggle to draw themselves. Another practice was re-drawing a picture, but re-drawing it upside down. Some of the students did well and others struggled, but they tried their best to succeed. When the time comes to choose clubs again make sure you join Ms. Hetrick if you want to improve your art skills.
