Elizabeth Marino Still Embracing the Grind
By Elizabeth Marino, Staff Writer
The 2017–18 wrestling team has taken on the “small but mighty” attitude for the year. Starting with just under 20 boys at the beginning of the year, the realities of the sport shaved the roster down to only 11, currently. What they don’t have in participation numbers, they are trying to make up for in work ethic, discipline and effort.

Jill Jevnikar It's all Greek (and Latin) to Them
By Jill Jevnikar, Staff Writer
West Geauga offers a number of different clubs for student participation. Students can join a club, based on their interests/skills, and, from art club to robotics, students are sure to find a club that fits. For anyone interested in Greek Mythology, Latin Club is for you! Mr. Aaron Graora runs the show and is known to be a staff favorite. He decided to continue Latin club for the past five years after the club was started by the previous Latin teacher, Mr. Bill Preuter.

The West Geauga Interact club is in full swing this 2018 school year. Last year, the Interact club had over 100 active members. Those members volunteered more than 1,200 hours of service throughout the community. There have been roughly 30 different events that the students have devoted their time to, helping others so far this year. Interact advisor, Mrs. Chelsea Talty said, “I think it is amazing how these students donated so much time and made a difference in so many lives.”
Kaitlin Magalski Little Women Plays to Enthusiastic Crowd
By Kaitlyn Magalski, Staff Writer
This past fall season, West Geauga’s drama department put on its production of Little Women, a musical based on the book by the same name, written by Louisa May Alcott. The story, to give a quick summary, is about four girls and their lives both during and in post-Civil War America. It was put on by a cast of 14, 10 girls and 4 boys, with dramatic director, Ms. Alli St. John and musical director, Mrs. Melanie Kennedy. 
Cristal Robinson AP Art Goes Downtown
By Cristal Robinson, Staff Writer
Among its many advanced course offerings, West Geauga High School has an Advanced Placement art class. Ms. Lori Nells is the class’ long – time teacher. When Ms. Nells was in high school, she dreamed of becoming a teacher. She went to Baldwin Wallace and Hiram College for her education. Speaking of education, for the 2017 – 2018 school year, there are currently 8 students enrolled in the class. What the class might lack in “quantity,” it more than certainly makes up for in “quality.”
