On March 18th, the highly-anticipated sequel to the hit movie Divergent was released in theaters. To the disappointment of the franchise’s many fans, Insurgent did not live up to its predecessor’s greatness. Despite its star-studded cast and enormous budget, the movie fell flat, with a confusing and counterintuitive plot and recycled storylines that made it seem like a cheap knock-off of every young adult movie from the past fifteen years.

Participants in Domestic Violence Awareness Honored

Never conceding the lead, girls lacrosse defeated rival St.Joseph 17-13 on April 15. Neck in neck the entire game, the girls were able to come out on top despite St. Joseph’s several attempts to come back.

The girls started the first half strong with an incredible goal from Emily Uus in the first 32 seconds of the game. Uus won the draw and was pushed to the ground so she was given the ball at the 50. Uus then ran all the way down the field and scored, giving her team an incredibly early lead.

As March turned to April, the students and faculty of THS at last enjoyed one of our favorite annual traditions. While outside it was still cold and dreary, the halls at school were bright with beautifully decorated doors and happy faces looking forward to events like the International Cooking Contest and the Ennio Emmanuel Concert. Along with the awesome experiences and competitions, World Language Week offered a great opportunity to immerse students in the worlds of other cultures, even just passing by doors commemorating the Spanish Civil War or the Aztec gods, or popping into the Senior Lounge to try tasty dishes for only $2.

The show chronicles the events that lead to finding out who did it and how the legal system will solve the case, despite the apparent issues seen through the victim’s and suspects’ families’ eyes.
