State Bound | Cross Country sends 2 girls to state

Two WHS cross country runners are headed to state.

The cross country team hosted its regional meet Saturday, with two runners qualifying for the state championship. Sophomore Rebekah Stuhlsatz came in second in the girls race with a time of 21:46. Freshman Sienna Jones had an eighth place finish, with a time of 23:09 seconds. 

Stuhlsatz says it’s disappointing that the rest of the team won’t get to compete at state alongside her, but she’s excited nonetheless.

For a third year in a row, Charger volleyball is headed to state.

It’s the Charger’s seventh state appearance in nine seasons.

Tennis brings experienced squad to regional

Tennis will enter the postseason Friday, participating in the regionals meet at Smoky Valley in Lindsborg. 

“I feel good about our team, but I definitely know our regional is very tough,” head coach Brendan Praeger said. The team is looking forward to the competition, but knows it could be tough to send players to state. “This is the most experienced team I’ve ever had,” Praeger said, “They’ve been in this position before and know the challenges.” With seven senior players, many have the experience needed to perform well.

Editorial: Students need to exercise right to vote

Now more than ever, it is crucial for young people to exercise their right to vote. 

From 1972 to 2016, the proportion of youth ages 18 to 24 who reported voting in presidential elections decreased from 50 to 39 percent. With our country experiencing political turmoil, it is important that every voice is heard so the appropriate decisions can be made by the people who are voted as the best fit to run our country. For better representation of the youth in our country, all teens of voting age need to get to the polls.
