Watching the stands fill up for Volleyball Day, senior Kaelin Pribyl stopped to snap a pic before the stadium got too busy. On Aug. 30, Nebraska beat the world record with an attendance of 92,003 people. These types of moments help bring more attention to womens sports, which allows them to receive the respect they deserved a long time ago, Pribyl said. The video tributes were what I enjoyed most about the game because they were videos of players talking about what this opportunity means for them personally and how it impacts sports all together.

Gabrielle Wardyn and Waffles pose for a picture after completing his autism awareness service dog training. The week-long assessment and training required a lot of physical and mental training that not all dogs qualify for. Now, Waffles is trained for both outside and inside school-related events. “I immediately saw a change in Waffles behavior,” Wardyn said. “Very alert and aware of his surroundings.”

In the midst of shirt toss, senior Aedan Romero takes flight to launch a t-shirt into the crowd.  The crazies were the stars of the show during our Fall pep-rally, leading and getting the school ready for the Battle of Q-Street which took place just hours later. Honestly, I was a little nervous to see how everyone would react to this years crazies, but as we took the stage, everyone was super excited and it ended up being a lot of fun, Romero said. My one goal was to prep everybody for the game, and just simply get the energy going from the start.

With everything they need, juniors Caden Lentz and Casey Olson started their business, C+C Crêpes, this past summer. All the Crêpes are fresh and made on-site at each farmer’s market since the batter only lasts for 48 hours. “We would like to be able to sell more during the spring and fall,” Lentz said. “But because me and Casey are involved in many sports and other activities, we do the majority of our markets in the summer.”

Seniors Logan Moseley, and Nathan Delaney, work on putting together a weekly update for “The Uproar.” With creative freedom and flexibility, the two seniors put on their own twists  into the weekly recording. “My favorite part was the customization,” Moseley said. “The HSRP was really fun controlling what played on the air and what I talked about on the air.”

Stacking dirty lunch trays, junior Carson Chesterman keeps the conveyor belt to the dish washing center running smoothly during second lunch. Although a simple task, it provides some major help and a much needed break for the custodial staff to focus on other areas of the cafeteria. “I enjoy seeing my fellow peers also taking on the responsibility of cleaning and helping out around the school as well,” Chesterman said. “I firmly believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to help others out, one way or another.” Photo by Kelsey Nunnenkamp
