Camille is a senior at Millard West, and this is her second year on the Catalyst staff. This year, she looks forward to covering all of the sports Millard West has to offer.

Ryan Moseley, Jenson Groff and Kieren Langer ride side-by-side during the race. They finished the race faster than they expected. . My hope is that get to see and experience a large scale mountain bike race, see some awesome trails, and push through to the end, Moseley said. They are both strong racers, and I anticipate they will finish well.

With her knees bent and her glove open and facing down, sophomore Kaitlyn Fisher prepares to field the ball. The Wildcats defeated Papillion-La Vista South 13-5 on Aug 19. “Defensively, I think that weve really started to settle into our positions and were playing really solid,” Fisher said. “Weve had big moments of adversity already this season that weve had to overcome and I really think that its pushed us all to become better players out there.”

Students cut into the rat and followed the directions on their lab sheet. We had to follow a guide that was step by step to dissect the rat, junior Gina Olson said. We could also ask the teacher for help if we needed it.

Senior Kaitlyn Dickmeyer rolls the ball down the lane. She thinks that she needs to improve on some of her skills. “The skill that I would like to improve for the next meet is to keep my elbow in,” senior Kaitlyn Dickmeyer said. “I need to make sure that I dont top the ball which is when you twist your wrist too much which will cause it to go more towards the left.”

Junior Campbell Macy stands holding a box of the donuts that she designed. On the top of the box, there is a donut with red hot frosting. “We turned the cinnamon candy into a very thick syrup and emulsified that into our standard white icing,” Bob’s Donuts chef Keri Tull said. “We already had an apple cake donut that we were selling so we used that. The toppings are a syrup that we made and crushed cinnamon candy.”

Junior Ava Rongisch and senior Madi Warren look up at each other while wearing a mask. They stood on the softball field getting ready to play. When it is hot out, the gator mask does get pretty sweaty, junior Ava Rongisch said. Also, when we are done running and have to put up our mask it makes it a little hard to breathe. We all know it’s for our safety.
