Sports Updates

October 8, 2018

For a perspective on the tennis team, I interviewed Daniel Kowal, who is a varsity tennis player.


Q:How has the season gone so far?

A: We’ve played a lot of matches and have won most of them against our opponents but it’s still early in the season so we aren’t worried about anything yet.

Q: What are some of your strengths this year?

A: We have some pretty solid doubles team this year. That seems to be one of our strongest areas on the court against other teams. We also have had a lot of help with some good incoming freshman coming to join us.

Q: What are some of your weaknesses this year?

A: A lot of of teams have good singles team. Which has been very challenging for us. The competition for singles is going to be hard for us.

Q:What do you guys think you need to work on the most?

A: I think we just need to work on conditioning and getting in shape. If we work on moving our feet we will be in good shape.

Q: What do you think your chances are at state?

A: I believe that we do. We are obviously not the ones favored to win, but I feel like we are the underdog coming in. If we pull off our 2 doubles and 2 singles then we will definitely be in shape for a good spot. We just need to do our thing and I think we will have a good chance.


For a perspective on the Cross Country team, I interviewed James Chapman, who is a runner for the team, who ran at state and has lettered.


Q:How has your team’s season gone so far?

A: We’ve had a strong season so far. We haven’t yet been beaten by a team from Nebraska.

Q: What has been your team’s biggest strengths to a good season so far?

A: Our team is, according to Father Tillman, the deepest it’s ever been. In addition, we have a fantastic group of senior leaders.

Q: What do you think your team can work on to become better?

A: Father Tillman really wanted us to take Metros this year, and we did, which gives us a big confidence boost going into State.

Q: Do you guys think you have a good chance at state?

A: We certainly have a shot, but we will face tough competition. The field is loaded with good teams this year, especially Fremont, Lincoln Southwest, and Central.

To give the best view on the varsity football team, I interviewed Mateo Degeorge, who is a cornerback and wide receiver

Q:How has your team’s season gone so far?

A: The season began in the sweetest fashion. We prepared all summer to beat omaha north, fresh off of their state championship, and we got the job done. We took care of business with central, Millard north, Northwest, and Columbus, and suffered some rough loses to Lincoln high and westside. Those losses fueled us in the following games, and I believe that we will handle the rest of our opponents this regular season.

Q: What has been your team’s biggest strengths?

A: Our offense is very high powered and we have a great offensive line, as well as fantastic skill guys. When were clicking, nobody in the state can contain us. I think people sometimes overlook our defense, but they’re no joke. Guys like John bullock are making 3 straight tackles to force a 3 and out, and that makes a huge impact on our confidence.

Q: What do you think your team can work on to become better?

A: I think that at times, our offense struggles to maintain the tempo that we want, but when we do, we have the opponent gasping for breaths while we are calm and collected, going 100 miles per hour

Q: What are your thoughts on bringing a state championship?

A: Nothing would make these guys happier than putting “2018” up in the heider center, and bringing home a trophy. Our guys are hungry and our two losses haven’t shifted anyone’s mindset- that trophy is coming back to 72nd and western for the first time since ‘04.
