Over the past two weeks the boys tennis team has had five matches and is still waiting to finish several games that were postponed at the beginning of their season. The team suffered hard losses to opponents like Altoona, Punxsutawney and Juniata. However, they also pulled off a hard fought victory against Mountain League rival Clearfield.

“We have a tough schedule so to get the win against a pretty good Clearfield team is defiantly a confidence booster for our team,” said Head Coach Randy Irvin, “This should help us later in the year to pick up some more wins.”

Each match has a different set of players due to the duel athletes and activity conflicts team members face, but each match provides experience to the younger athletes starting out on the team. With a young team headed by veteran players, each game of their busy schedule helps the team make progress and build off of each other to grow their skills.

As the team finishes out their schedule, they’ll try to beat rival Huntington on the second go around for a chance to tie for the mountain League title, and improve their record (1-5).

AJ Grassi, Editor in Chief

Eagle Eye Editor in Chief A.J. Grassi is a second year veteran of the Eagle Eye/Channel T video production class. AJ is very involved with school as he participates in many activities, including football, track, and tennis. But sports aren’t AJ’s only hobby. In his free time he likes to work on miniature models of vehicles ranging from cars to rockets. He is also a Boy Scout and is currently working on his Eagle Scout project.  When A.J. isn’t at football practice or placing with RC cars, he is here working on videos.

After high school, A.J. plans to attend a ghost college with a haunted major (in other words, he has no clue what he wants to do just yet). When asked what words of wisdom he would pass down to fellow peers, AJ is excited to say that Eagle Eye is the most enjoyable classroom experience anyone could have, and encourages everyone to sign up ASAP.

Hi, I’m Zackery Webster, Editor in Chief of the Eagle Eye News. I have been a part of the Eagle Eye Newspaper for four years. In that time my niche in the staff room has evolved more than I could have guessed since my freshman year. I began as a writer and a photographer, then my junior year I found myself in the Photo Editor’s position, and this year, climbing even higher to Editor in Chief. This year, I’m in many sports and clubs including Marching Band, Cross Country, Speech Team, Mock Trial, Drama Club, Pops, and Ski Club. Some things that I enjoy in my free time include: not having any, laziness, and playing guitar.
