After the 2016-2017 soccer season concluded, there was doubt in the hearts of many who were hesitant of the successive years’ performance. What would the team do without all the illustrious seniors who had racked up accolades over their high school years and were now off to Division 1 college careers? Could the younger members possibly achieve a bar set so high?

Our 2017-2018 squad’s season has dissolved any of those doubts. With a thrilling regular and postseason, the boys have met the standard set so high by last year’s roster. Although off to a shaky start, they managed to pick themselves back up with a late rush of “dubs”. With early losses to Ludlowe and Stamford, the team knew that they had to regain their position at the top of the league, regardless of their low seeding.

As the first quarter ends, it is just the beginning for the Trumbull High School Model Congress team, under the direction of advisor Ms. Boland. By the end of a one month span, the club will have participated in three different conferences, the premier trip being to Washington D.C. in mid-November.

The club kicked off their fall competitions on October 21st, when eleven students attended a local day conference at Wilton High School. In preparation for the competition, each individual wrote their own bill addressing a topic of their choice. The day was spent debating issues from students loans to foreign policy, culminating with a crisis committee related to North Korea’s nuclear threat at the end of the conference.

Even for an experienced member of the club, the day conference proved to be rewarding, as senior Shane Carley (‘18) would note. “The Wilton Model Congress Conference was truly a great experience,” Carley recalled, “Not only did I get to spend a day with some good friends but I got to hone my skills in competition. Ultimately, this conference made me more confident in presenting bills.”

When it comes to early winter or late fall, people start to think of things like snow falling from the sky or the trees rustling in the cool air. The holidays are on their way, so here are two desserts you can make for your favorite holiday.

Pumpkin Pie
This would be the perfect dessert to bring to your family thanksgiving party or maybe just for the sake of baking it for fun!

1 15 ounce (oz) can of pumpkin
1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon of ground ginger
½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon of salt
1 unbaked pie crust (9 inches)

Directions: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Put all ingredients except for pie crust, into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour into pie crust and bake in oven for 15 minutes.

Reduce the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees F and continue to bake 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted into pie comes out cleanly. Take pie out of oven and let cool. Once cool, you may serve the dessert!
