Balancing on Thin Ice

Elias Pipinos, Front Page Editor | January 6, 2023

A black puck of rubber flies across the rink, with players on skates not far behind. This sport, known for its high-speed action and its fight-prone players, takes place not only on the ice but in conference rooms and in MN’s study halls as well. Despite its reputation, hockey is a sport that requires a lot of time management skills and that needs to be well planned out. Team captain Jacob Hyder,...

When you think of girls' high school sports, what comes to mind? You probably don’t think of calloused hands, heavy lifting, and grimy metal bars. My entire childhood was composed of different sports: from swim to dance to cheer to basketball to cross country to track to soccer. I’ve scouted sports high and low. But I was never aware of the inequality my gender suffered in the athletic world. ...

The Greatest Show on Turf

Grace Evert, Staff Writer | December 7, 2022

When someone mentions the world's biggest soccer tournament, there is only one name that comes to mind, the Fifa World Cup. It is easy to picture the bright white lines painted on a green field so large it makes players look like action figures. However, the only thing bigger than the World Cup field itself is the fanbase. With over 4 billion viewers, the World Cup makes soccer the most-watched...

Remember that sport you used to play when you were younger? Like most kids, your parents probably forced you to try every sport offered at the YMCA until you found one you liked. Perhaps you played this sport for a while before becoming too busy, getting burnt out, or just never liking sports to begin with before quitting. These are all reasons why intramural sports should be offered at Millard North.  Personally,...

Sailing into State

Mia Castro, Staff Writer | November 7, 2022

Breathe in. Breathe out. Block out all the eyes on you. Focus. Set up your play. Examine the hole, grip the club in your hand, and then glance back at the ball. Fix your stance. Hit the ball. Boom.  This is what girls golf did every match in the season. The girls had grown used to the routine and stakes were high once again this year in the ultimate battle of the NSAA State Girls Golf Championship...

Stangs Under New a Reign

Cecelia Vlieger, Staff Writer | November 7, 2022

The shrieking of basketball shoes fills the MN gym and the swooshing of nets from players sinking threes. There is great pride in the basketball team and the back-to-back State titles they defend. This upcoming season, they’ll continue this successful run with a new coach in charge.

Last Run

Last game, last run, last chance for State. The six softball seniors prepare for their last season at MN.  “I just have a really good feeling about it, like we are finally going to be State Champs,” senior Katherine Johnson said. Johnson knows this is their last chance to become State Champions, which puts undeniable pressure on the girls to perform.  “We have a lot of weight on our...

Serving Something New

Adithi Deeduvanu, Staff Writer | September 28, 2022

The sway of a racquet, the squeak of tennis shoes, and the thudding pop of the ball: all sounds that are familiar to the boys' tennis team. However, this year brings some changes for the team that seems less conventional. The demolition of their old courts, two new coaches, and plenty of new faces to the varsity and JV teams. The old tennis courts were up for many years and were in major need of...

The sisters are both on MN’s girl’s varsity tennis team, an...
