Spring Sports Preview

By Cassidy Kelley
Baseball: Stand Tall, Talk Small, Play Ball Baseball is the All-American sport that is also considered to be America’s pastime. Mooresville High School isn’t an exception for the love of the game. Coach Eric McGaha has been the MHS boys’ baseball coach for the past two years after coming back from a two year break in order to spend more time with his family. Before then he had been the coach at MHS for eight consecutive seasons. “I’ve been blessed to have been the coach here on two separate occasions,” McGaha said. McGaha’s expectations for the team this year he says are quite simple: to play the best brand of baseball humanly possible. With 12 seniors on the roster, the boys are not lacking in experience. The only problem they face is getting the seniors focused on the daily task of getting better. When the weather starts to get warmer and the boys can go outside more, McGaha believes they’ll be sharper in their execution. Seniors Cole Long and Nathan Gilbert have been …

"Lent" Me a Hand

by Taylor Childs  “I’m going through sugar withdrawal,” junior Michelle Majeski said. Have you heard this before or complaints like it? Know why your friends are giving up their vices and abstaining from meat? Lent has begun! But what is Lent exactly? Lent is a time of spiritual preparation for the celebration of Easter. It is a time of self -examination and reflection. Beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Holy Saturday, Lent lasts 40 days, not including Sundays. Observers of this tradition are predominately all Eastern Christians (Orthodox), all Roman Catholics, and some Protestant denominations. During this time, observers abstain from the consumption of meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all remaining Fridays. These are marked as Fasting Days, and some observers refrain from snacking between meals. Historically, the 40 days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness and the practice of fasting was meant to help unify people who could afford meat with poor people who co…

Shake It for Charity: Dance Marathon

On Saturday, March 23 the Student Council will be hosting a Dance Marathon in support of Riley Children’s Hospital from 1 pm to 5 pm. “This year we’re trying to get as many people as possible to go,” student body president Mandy Carroll said. “By raising money, we could save someone’s life.” The fundraiser operates much like the Race for the Cure, allowing students to register to dance and do a variety of other activities, including ping pong, crafts, basketball, cornhole, a bouncehouse and a photobooth. Participants are required to raise $20 each for the Riley Children’s Hospital. “We would like to raise over $2000 and we are already almost halfway there,” media specialist Barbara Goddard said. This year, the Dance Marathon will officially be connected to the Riley Children’s Hospital for the first time. “We are excited to have (MHS prom DJ) Heartbreak DJ at the marathon,” Goddard said. “We have the same DJ, but it’s a lot cheaper than Prom.” MHS will have Spirit Days next week for the Dan…

by Taylor Childs    The theater department is getting ready for their premier of Play On tonight, Thursday March 7th at 7 p.m. in the Mooresville High School Auditorium, with a follow up performance on Friday the 8th. Admission is $5 for anyone over the age of five. This year’s play is actually a play within a play, commonly referred to among the cast as “playception.” “The writer keeps changing everything last minute, and on the opening night, everything that could go wrong, does,” senior MacKinsey Taylor said. The idea of a play within a play was new for some of the cast, but overall well liked. "It sounds like a great idea. The crowds really going to like it," junior Josh Passey said. The play is agreed to be great for a high school production. "It's good for high school students to watch and act in. It shows the hilarious truths of what goes on in a play,” student teacher Kaitlyn Yearwood said. The play must be a crowd pleaser; it's actually a redo from 10 year…
