McGowen’s Years in Band Leave Big Impression

Everyone has that one thing they’re good at, and for Grayson McGowen, that thing is band. Having participated in band for a total of six years, McGowen’s life revolves around the schedule of the Pride of Paoli and other aspects of the band.
McGowen plays in the marching band, pep band, jazz band and concert band. She first joined after admiring the work that her older sister, Maggie McGowen, had previously done in the band, and now they are currently in the band together.
The McGowen family’s life has been greatly affected by the girls’ involvement in the band at PHS. From practice to competitions, both daughters are very busy, as are the McGowen parents. Jodi and Scott McGowen feed band kids, make props, help with uniforms and do many other band-related activities on a daily basis. Overall, McGowen’s life is hugely affected by this program.
“Band has affected me in many ways. It has helped me make more friends, helped me open up more to others and find myself easier,” said McGowen.
McGowen’s biggest achievement in the band is placing third at State last year, which reminded her of her favorite memory of being in band: standing in the awards block at State. While doing this, band directors come around and shake band member’s hands and give them a sense of pride, which McGowen holds dear to her heart.
“Band changed my high school career for the better, and I’m lucky to be a part of such a successful program.” said McGowen.
Being in band has been a big part of McGowen’s life for six years now, but music has always been a huge aspect of her daily life.
“I knew music was going to be a big part of my life one day when I was at church. A man that I went to church with gave me his trumpet, and it inspired me to start playing,” said McGowen.
McGowen plans on pursuing music as her future career once she graduates high school. She also plans to continue using what she has learned from band and her other skills. Having the talent of playing the trumpet, flugelhorn, piano, ukulele and the guitar, she already has much musical talent to build off of. She is looking into IU’s music program but is unsure of her future plans. McGowen dreams of playing and living in New York City.

Golf Senior Lowe

Senior Allie Lowe is one of the two seniors on the girls golf team this year. Lowe began playing golf as a freshman. After Lowe chose not to continue with volleyball, she was trying to find another sport to play. Fellow senior teammate Callie Baker asked her dad show Lowe how to play so she could join the team.  When Lowe began playing, she played one of the last spots on the golf team, but now she has the honor of playing number two.
Lowe really likes how golf is an individual sport and how it makes you own up to your mistakes. She does not like how she gets in her head and becomes upset about a bad stroke or meet.
“Golf has shown me that you can’t blame your mistakes on other people, I have to own up to them,” said Lowe.
Golf does not take up a huge amount of time. She focuses when she needs to, but still has plenty of time to support her friends at their sports events. It’s all about prioritizing.
“You need a lot of self motivation, so if you don’t, then golf is not for you,” said Lowe.
Lowe’s goal for the season was to shoot in the low 50s or high 40s, and she successfully reached that goal at the Springs Valley match. She shot a 51 there and a 47 at practice at Paoli, which is really good for her.
Like most activities, time often improves an athlete’s skills in a sport.
“Golf is definitely a sport you have to stick with. There will always be good and bad matches or shots, but if you can get through the worst of it, the good that comes is amazing,” said Lowe.
When Lowe leaves high school, she is not going to continue to pursue her golf career.
“She has shown improvement each of the years that I had her. She was a sophomore when I first took over the girls golf program, and along with Callie [Baker], she has shown great leadership, has worked hard to improve her golf game and has been a pleasure to coach. Allie was named as an Academic All-State Honorable Mention this past season, so she has shown hard work in the classroom also and is a role model as a scholar athlete,” said varsity girls golf coach Brad Bledsoe.

Graves’ Hunting Skills

Eighth grader Hallie Graves is ready for her hunting season this year. Graves has been hunting since she was eight years old, and she hunts with her dad and grandpa.
“I’ve killed one turkey, around 15 squirrels, three frogs, nine rabbits and a ton of fish, and this is my first year killing a deer, my first doe,” said Graves.
Although Graves herself has only killed one doe, both her dad and grandpa each have killed bucks.
“After my dad or my grandpa shoots and kills a deer, they take it to Lindell’s Taxidermy, there they can either make meat, a mount, have it skinned or a lot of different stuff,” said Graves.
Graves has taken plenty of shots at deer, but none were ever accurate enough to kill one, until this year.
“When you miss a deer, you just kind of replay in your head what you could have done differently and just basically saying over and over to yourself, ‘dang it,’” said Graves.
When Graves goes hunting, she brings all of her essentials and some extras.
“When I go hunting, of course I bring what I need: my gun, bullets and I have my camouflage clothing on. I also bring beef jerky, crackers and water, just because once I ate oatmeal before I went and puked everywhere while hunting. I just get so excited I throw up, and I have to have something to settle my stomach afterwards,” said Graves.
Graves’ goal for this hunting season was to kill a buck.
“At least I met my halfway mark and killed a doe,” said Graves.

Trip Planned for Seventh Grade to Actor’s Theater

On November 30, seventh grade English teacher Loretta Brown will be taking the seventh grade class to Actor’s Theater in Louisville to see a performance of A Christmas Carol.

“I wanted to take students on this field trip again because students learn to appreciate the theater as a result. Before going on the field trip in the past, I have students tell me they didn’t think it would be good. Once they see the performance with all of the special effects, they are excited about the experience,” said Brown.

In order for the seventh graders to attend, they must be in a general or pre-AP English class and not have an “F” overall grade in any class.

Prior to the day of the trip, a representative from the theater will be in Brown’s classes doing activities with the kids to prepare them for the performance.

Students will leave the school by bus at 8:30 a.m. and return by 2:45 p.m.

Brown has done this trip for many years and will continue doing so with the seventh graders.

Football Manager Warren

This year is eighth grade student Lillie Warren’s first year as one of the high school football managers, and she is having quite the experience being a part of the team.
“It’s different because you barely know anyone on the team because you’re not in high school with them, but it isn’t all that difficult,” said Warren.
There are two football managers who are in junior high and four who are in high school, making six in all for the high school football team. They are Kayla Bailey, Olivia VanMeter, Maggie Vincent, Alyssa Warren, Lillie Warren and Jackie Crews.
Warren enjoys being a football manager because the football boys are always fun to be around, and they know how to make her laugh.
“They can all be a little smelly at times, and when they get frustrated they might toss the water bottles harder than usual, but all around they are a good group of boys,” said Warren.
Warren plans on continuing to be a football manager.
“I enjoy the people, the coaches, the excitement of the bus rides and game time. It’s all a lot of fun,” said Warren.
To be a junior varsity and varsity football manager, you have to show interest and be at a majority of the games and practices. In return for being a football manager, you get a Pride Pack, which includes two pairs of Paoli shorts, two shirts, a sweatshirt and sweatpants.
“I enjoy being a part of the football team because it feels like I’m more than just an eighth grade school girl at Paoli, and it makes me happy that I can actually do something for the team I’ve watched since I was a little girl on Friday nights,” said Warren.

Senior Football Manager VanMeter

Football fans see the players tackle, score, and line up along the sideline. Who fans may not see are the girls rushing not for yards, but to get water to the timeout huddle, an air pump to the deflated helmet and so much more to keep the players playing. These working girls are the managers. Senior Olivia VanMeter is in her second and final year of managing for the Rams football team.
“I really enjoy being a football manager, and with this being my last year, the season is going really fast,” said VanMeter.
VanMeter shows up to practice four days a week and to games on Friday. She’s there to give water to coaches and players, work on any broken helmets and look out for injuries. The biggest night of the week comes on Friday, when VanMeter and the other managers scramble to get everything set up for the night.
“My favorite part about being a manager is probably game day. I love being on the sidelines and seeing everything happen right in front of me. I also enjoy getting everything ready for the big night,” said VanMeter.
After the night is over, the laundry is started, the water bottles are cleaned and the training room is reorganized. The whole cycle begins again on Monday.
“I’m really going to miss the other managers: Maggie, Alyssa, Kayla, Lillie and Jackie,” said VanMeter.

Bosley Visits Purdue Campus

BosleyPurdueOn December 12, freshman Brett Bosley made a trip to visit the Purdue University basketball program. This trip was an opportunity for the freshman to learn about a possible college location where he could take his basketball talent.

“I got to visit the locker room and basketball facilities,” said Bosley.

Bosley has made several trips playing basketball around the country, and his talents have drawn the attention of many colleges in Indiana. Bosley’s visit to Purdue was his first real chance to learn about the college game, and see a place where he could possibly fit.

“They allowed me to meet all the Purdue players. I had a chance to shoot around a little bit on the court. The experience was very fun and interesting,” said Bosley.

While on campus, Bosley also attended a Purdue game. After this visit, Bosley has high hopes for his future, realizing that there may be some difficult decisions ahead.

Roach’s Pride for POP

The Pride of Paoli has been around as early as the 1930s, which was when high schools in the Midwest began to add bands to their school programs. POP was originally named the Paoli Marching Rams until 1979, when Mrs. Teresa Elliott became the band director and started the Pride of Paoli. There are classes for different school sizes. POP is currently in Class D since they have a smaller number of students than Class A. Bands cannot move up or down a class based on success.
Sophomore Hunter Roach has a passion for playing the saxophone. He has been playing for a total of six years throughout elementary school, junior high and high school. Roach still loves the music and marching along with the other students who are working hard every day.
Over the summer, the band got most of the marching and music done and successfully completed the first part of this year’s show, A View from the Top. The show is about taking a long journey where the band becomes tired and gives up, but they end up gaining energy and overcoming the obstacles they face. Roach hopes to become better than last year, like always. Every practice and competition is a chance to improve.
“I think we’re going to be really good this year,” said Roach.
Band involves a lot of people. They have to be able to make the show come alive between the color guard and band. Coming together as a whole and making friends along the way is something that makes long lasting memories.
“My favorite part of band is the excitement and pride I feel knowing that I’m part of a large group, and knowing that I’m part of something larger than myself,” said Roach.
Band is important to Roach. He loves being part of a successful program where he gets to perform with his friends.
“We work so often and so hard, the band develops negative feelings towards each other during practice and keep them with us off the field,” said Roach.
Unfortunately, Roach does not favor the negative feelings towards the band and other people in band. The negativity makes the band practice harder when they are angry at each other.
Roach hopes to continue participating in band into his college career at the University of Evansville. He has the talent, hard work and potential to do great things.

Board Adopts Meal Charging Change

The meal charging policy at PHS has been changed. Adopted on October 9, students are expected to pay for meals in advance or on the day the meal is served. Students may charge up to a $25 limit in their lunch or breakfast account before paying off their meals. Once the $25 limit is reached, the child will only be able to receive an alternate meal and not a meal of their choice.

Forgetting meal money is another story. Students can eat that day’s reimbursable meal only and then are expected to bring money for the meal the following day. The cafeteria will also be sending home payment reminders with those having $5 or less in their lunch account each Friday.

Not receiving payment for a longer period of time will result in a letter being sent to the child’s address on file to clarify the ability of the Board to take their parents or guardians to small claims court over the missing lunch payment. The parent will also be responsible for the cost of the court date, which will add to the amount of debt already on hand.

Boys Basketball Opens Season Saturday

The Paoli boys basketball season is just around the corner with high expectations set for this years group of boys. For the past two weeks, the boys have been in the gym preparing for the upcoming season. The team lost no seniors from last year but moved up five seniors this year, causing expectations to be set high for their final season.

Returning seniors include Dawson Easterday, Dietrich Sears, Garrett Vincent, Mitchell Radcliff and Jacob Babcock.

“Expectations are extremely high this season.  An entire roster returns from a 15 win team from a year ago,” said varsity coach Dusty Cole.

Many players this season are projected to do very well, considering the team has multiple players who will be scorers.

“We have multiple kids that can score this year.  That will certainly be a strength.  I think we will have 5-6 kids average close to double figures,” said Cole.

Though a successful season is expected, the boys will have to be able to work as a team as well as stay healthy to reach their full potential. This season, the Rams will play a good schedule with tough competitors including Henryville, Salem and North Harrison.

“To be honest, we will have a target on our back every night.  Beating Paoli this season will be a really big win for multiple teams on our schedule. We will take everyone’s best shot, and we must be prepared and willing to accept that challenge,” said Cole.

Lapel was alse added to the schedule this season for a game that will be played in The Hoosier Gym located in Knightstown, Indiana.

This group of players is eager for a great season to begin with their first game on December 1 at Henryville. Come out and support the Rams as they begin what they hope to be a great season.

“I really like this group of young men this year.  They work hard, are very unselfish and represent the school well.  We have a lot of great student-athletes right now that are good role models for our younger kids,” said Cole.

The team will open up their season against the Clarksville Generals at PHS tomorrow, November 18, at 7 p.m.

College Credit Enrollment Soars at PHS

Dual credit classes can be a lifesaver for students when it comes to working towards a higher education. A dual credit class is a course that counts as both high school and college credit. PHS works together with Ivy Tech Community College to make getting a head start on college possible.
“Students must meet certain criteria to be eligible for the college credits associated with each Early College course. In some cases, student must show college readiness in areas of math, reading, and writing. This college readiness can many times be shown through currently administered exams including PSAT, SAT, or ACT,” said guidance counselor Brandon Crowder. Ivy Tech also provides hassle-free testing opportunities for students, such as the ACCUPLACER.
PHS and Ivy Tech offer many courses that come with college credit. Speech, advanced U.S history, AP chemistry, finite, pre-calculus, music appreciation, Spanish 3 and AP studio art are just a few examples; however, there are 32 all together.
Ivy Tech requires testing for enrollment by November 1. This year alone, 97.8% of PHS students who took a qualifying test, such as the ACCUPLACER, qualified for college credit.
“I can only assume that the correlation between qualifying test scores and dual-credit enrollment has to do with students coming into those classes more prepared with more reading, writing and math knowledge. It is a shared success with the students for achieving this and our teachers for preparing them to do so,” said Crowder.
PHS offers a large number of college credit classes, allowing students to complete several required college classes before graduating high school. If the numbers stay at the same rate, students will be earning a total of 1,742 college credits by the end of the year. This is PHS’s highest college credit enrollment and qualifying percentage to date.

Babcock Follows Father’s Footsteps

Even as upperclassmen, a lot of students have no leads as to what career field they want to pursue. The decision can be overwhelming because after all, it is the rest of someone’s life. For senior Jacob Babcock, the choice was obvious. Ever since elementary school, Babcock has dreamed of entering the field of law enforcement.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Babcock has honed in on the idea of entering the police force. More specifically, Babcock has already decided he wants to become part of the military police for the Air Force.
“I decided to join the Air Force to gain experience in law enforcement. I will become a law enforcement officer through the military base,” said Babcock.
Signing up is the first step for enlisting in the military, and Babcock is one step ahead. Babcock officially joined the Air Force on March 14, 2017. Joining the military brings many responsibilities and duties for Babcock, so he has been preparing every day.
“I will be in security forces and have the same duties and responsibilities of a town cop, only on a military base,” said Babcock.
There are many steps to the training required for joining a branch of the military, and Babcock has already gotten involved.
“My training includes the basic military training, which is eight and a half weeks. After that, I go for a week of airmen’s training. I have also been preparing through physical training with my department in Bloomington,” said Babcock.
After preparing for almost two years, Babcock will finally be ready to start his career in the security forces next year.
“I will actually start my career in December of 2018. I will ship out in early July of 2018, and it will be six months before I get on my base,” said Babcock.
As for now, Babcock is unsure where he will be needed and is eager to learn where he will be deployed.
“Right now I do not know where I will go, and I won’t find out until I finish tech school around December,” said Babcock.
Joining the military is a big change and is hard on both the individual and their loved ones. The journey comes with mixed emotions, but Babcock is excited to start his new life serving our country.

Stroud: Junior Varsity to Varsity

Sophomore Lexi Stroud has played volleyball for the majority of her life. Stroud has spent most of her time playing school volleyball since fourth grade along with playing off season “club” volleyball since seventh grade. Stroud spent her freshman year playing as a middle hitter on the junior varsity team, but this year, Stroud was moved to varsity full time as an outside hitter.
“My initial reaction was ‘I can’t believe this is happening,’” said Stroud.
Most people join volleyball because it looks fun, but Stroud wanted to join because she liked the idea of hitting people in the face and not getting in trouble for it. There was also the fact that the team needed players.
During the practices and camps that take place over the summer, Stroud had been hitting middle. Varsity volleyball coach Alicia Clark moved Stroud up to varsity to practice hitting outside. After the volleyball team’s “purple and gold scrimmage”, Clark decided that Stroud was the best for the team.
“The biggest transition is the kind of players you play with or against, and hitting outside is actually easier than hitting middle,” said Stroud.
With everything in life, there pro and cons, including Stroud’s transition between teams. Stroud’s least favorite part about the switch is the fact that most of her friends are on JV, but her favorite part is that she’s more motivated as a player.
“My favorite part of being on Varsity is that fact that I am at a constant challenge to make myself a better player,” said Stroud.
Throughout the season, Stroud hopes to improve on her serve receive, passing and hitting defensive skills. Serve receive is when players pass a ball that is served to them, and defense is playing a ball off of a hit from the other team. Stroud hopes to have another highly successful season with her fellow varsity teammates.

Cheer Captain Davis

Senior Jorja Davis has been cheering for three and half years, and this will be her final year of being a cheerleader.

“I decided to do cheer because I just wanted to see if I could. I had tried to before at Orleans, and my older sister was a cheerleader. Coming here gave me a chance to try and do something a little different and take me out of my comfort zone,” said Davis.

She likes cheer because it’s more than being physically strong. It’s also mentally preparing yourself for games and pep sessions.

“Some of the perks of being the captain is being able to decide like how we’ll interact with the booster club at the games, what stunts we want to do in a cheer, what we wear to school on game days, what we wear to the games and how our hair is,” said Davis.

Davis is excited for basketball season and is hoping things will go a little smoother.

“The best part of being the captain is knowing that some of the girls look up to me and how I handle things. Because it can be stressful, just cheer itself is sometimes,” said Davis.

Davis believes this season will be a good year. A new coach has stepped in for English teacher Brooke Goerres for the season, who Davis says the team hasn’t had a lot of time with. Davis says there are girls she’s known since the first year and girls who have just joined and she has never been close with.

“I am going to miss the bonding you do with all the girls who come on,” said Davis.

Sullivan Sparkles on YouTube

Throughout life, everyone develops certain interests, and they are usually different, depending on the person and what their personality is. It may be scrapbooking, photography or any other infinite possibility. An intriguing interest for senior Livia Sullivan is makeup.

Over the past couple of years, Sullivan has become really interested in makeup, but she has always enjoyed watching various makeup YouTubers. Sullivan started a YouTube channel this past summer, and it is called “liviuhgrace”. She tries to upload tutorial videos every Monday and Friday.

“I use makeup as a way to express myself and kind of as an outlet. When I’m in my room playing with colors, it doesn’t matter what’s going on in my life, for those 1-2 hours I can just sit there and do what I love,” said Sullivan.

The “NikkieTutorials” account is what inspired her to get into makeup and experiment with it, but her best friend, sophomore Grayson McGowen, inspired her to start filming and doing what she loves. Sullivan started filming because many people were asking how she did certain looks. She used to record and create videos when she was younger, but she just recently got the courage to upload them.

Some of Sullivan’s favorite products to use are Artist Couture highlighters, which are really good for a blinding highlight. Another one of her favorites is the Anastasia glosses because they last all day and are really pigmented.

“My #1 product would have to be my Benefit Ka-brow because I have no eyebrows, and it allows me to draw them on,” said Sullivan.

Sullivan got most of her makeup ideas from the Internet because it is easy for people to share ideas and techniques. For someone interested in getting into makeup, Sullivan suggested getting ideas online, but magazines are also a good place to look. There are also many cosmetology schools where someone could learn a lot about makeup.

“People have been very supportive of my channel and my passion for makeup, and I am very thankful,” said Sullivan.

This year, the Pride of Paoli band has had a very successful season. Over the weekend the band participated in the State Finals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The band performed at 11:49 a.m. and had their best performance of the season, according to band director Bill Laughlin.

This year, the band placed fourth in their class. The band put their finishing touches on the show during rehearsals the week before State Finals. They also performed their show at many football games leading up to State and performed at a pep session the Friday before the competition.

“It was a joy and an honor to work and develop the show this year,” said Laughlin.

When you see marching band members and band directors, congratulate them on a wonderful season.
