Sandy Creek journalism is 3rd at state

Two Harvard journalism students compete for hardware

BY MELISSA WHITEFOOT

Seven state champions, two state runners-up, along with a slew of other placers, earned the Sandy Creek Journalism team a third place title at the state journalism competition Monday.

Two Harvard students, Jace Pelott and Ashley Nierman, also competed at state journalism; however, they did not medal.

Harvard adviser Brandy Reutzel said although the duo did not medal, they should be proud of themselves, especially since they were the only freshmen competing in their respective events, against 12 others, most of which were upperclassmen.

Ball field on Harvard Council docket

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Ball field maintenance was one of the main discussions during the April 10 Harvard Council meeting, with the council coming to the conclusion that the entire field needs updates.

The equipment, including helmets, safety gear, and bats, is old—more than 15 years—and the scoreboard doesn’t work in many areas, and the ice machine is broken again.

It was also noted that the field will need to be combed over, as an abundance of stickers have grown over it.

Voices of Zambia share hymns, gospel in Harvard

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Their voices melt together in a euphony of sounds that echo in and out of the gym and hallways.

Capturing the audiences attention is easy once the guitarist begins to thrum the cords and the drums are beat in a melodic tune.

The Voices of Zambia do just that—capture the audience’s attention with little effort as they move from one gospel to the next. While some are performed in English, a majority of the familiar hymns have taken on a new language, a new rhythm, and a new tone.
