The latest May issue needed some clarification in regards to the “Funky Fencing and More” story. Athletes, Jack Kruse and Rudy Longoria, were captioned as fencers. Instead, Jack Kruse is a lacrosse player and Rudy Longoria practices Tae Kwon Do. In addition, Emma Cooney’s fencing blurb was accidentally replaced by Rudy Longoria’s story. Here is Emma’s fencing story!
Fencer: Emma Cooney
Sport: Fencing
Description of Sport: Fencing is the activity of fighting with swords. The origin of fencing lies in Spain, and was carried throughout the world …

From February up until late June each year, we can hardly go two weeks without a major sporting event taking place. Thanks to the World Cup, it will be mid-August this year, but the NBA and NHL Playoffs usually round out what sportscasters like to call “Championship Season.” But in April, the sports world is captivated by best-of-seven playoff series in basketball and hockey, with 16 teams in each sport vying for a championship.
Here’s what the brackets look like:

 
So far, two first-round playoff series have completed in the NBA, with …

Time is running out on this year’s track season! Today, the 24th, is the varsity Harold Scott meet at Lincoln High. This meet marks the beginning of the end, being that there are only three more varsity meets before this season’s state championships. As the clock winds down, the Lincoln East track and field competitors are turning up their performances in anticipation of Districts (May 14). Lincoln East is in district A-3, a district that many track and field enthusiasts are naming “stacked”. The competitions will be …

It was a great day for the boy’s Reserve soccer team as they defeated Lincoln Pius 2-1 at Seacrest field.  The game was a nail-biter as the score was tied 1-1 for the majority of the game.  With only four minutes remaining, freshman Rouj Talat, scored an unrequited goal.  The Reserve season is almost over with four games remaining and less than two weeks before the conclusion of the season.  If you are looking for a time to cheer on the Reserve team, the next home game …

The beginning of last month marked the beginning of the 2014 Baseball season.  Now, halfway through the season, both Varsity and Junior Varsity are doing well.  The Varsity boys were 5-7, and the JV boys had won 6 by mid April.
On the 2014 Varsity team, there are only three juniors, including Chris Zweibel, Kai Friesen, and Brook Johnson.
“This season has gone pretty well overall so far, but there have been a few tough loses,” said Johnson, referring to their loses against Creighton Prep and Southeast.
Even though the …

   The sun shone bright in Jenny Kortus’ eyes as she searched for the yellow ball floating in midair. Her back was fully extended, making a sharp “C” shape, as her shoulder and arms lay coiled in a tense ready position. Then snapping the top half of her body downward faster than a mouse trap, Kortus sends the ball sailing over the net at hyperspeed. Consider the opposing team, Southeast, was unable to react fast enough to Kortus’ match-point serve, she walked away, winning the match at …

The East High track team has started the spring sport season off with a bang, hitting the ground running in all of their events–literally.  The women’s distance team has already broken a school record in the distance medley with Sora Hutchison running the 400, Rachel Dweikat running the 800, Lexi Altmaier running the 1200, and Alana Sesow running the 1600.  The record was from 1982, and was beaten by the Spartans by just over 24 seconds. Aside from this obvious accomplishment, the Spartan women …

At 6:30 pm yesterday on our very own Seacrest field, Lincoln East’s beloved Varsity LEGS showed Fremont who’s boss! Within the first 4 minutes there were at least 5 shots on goal with the first goal led by Carly Janike. Our LEGS kept the intensity high with crisp, clean passes and returns making this first half extremely successful and evidently a blast to watch!
With 15 minutes left in the first half, East showed no mercy. There was a good 5-0 lead- with goals by …
