Words: Melinda Gwanzura

As Spring Break quickly approaches, Centennial High School students and staff are reminded that this school year is sadly coming to an end. However, most, if not all of them are looking forward to a much needed vacation.

Freshman Anong Teke cannot wait to finally get some much needed sleep, “I’m excited to get some sleep, it feels like we haven’t been on break in forever.”

Agreeably, Ms. Dodds, said, “ I can’t wait to just stay home and hang out with friends over the break.”

Some students and teacher, on the other hand, won’t be seeing this break as a relaxation time, senior Samantha Courtemanche said, “ I’ve picked up some extra shifts over break.”

Regardless of whether or not you have plans for vacation, the break still marks the middle of the third quarter and the beginning of some of the most exciting senior events. So, stay safe and make sure to enjoy the break while it lasts.

Boys’ Soccer faced Reservoir for their 2015 Senior Night on Friday, October 23. The team honored nine seniors: Shazabe Akhtar, Tom Brown, EJ Fowler, Josh Kim, Savya Konkalmatt, Ian McQuaid, Michael Merkey, Bobby Nasafi, and Phillip Vea. Along with the players, the team’s two managers, Samantha Courtemanche and Peyton Conley were also honored for their dedication to the team.

Centennial dominated the game, and the offense created many goal scoring opportunities. The Eagles were awarded many free kicks which put pressure on the Gator defense.

The Eagles quickly got a goal scored by junior Ammar Narmouq followed by a goal from sophomore Nick Haskins.

Fowler also kept the ball out of the goal, saving the few shots Reservoir generated. The Eagles ended the half with a 2-0 lead.

The lead quickly extended in the second half when Konkalmatt took a shot from the outside, and Merkey was able to finish on the rebound. The Eagles showed incredible speed and passing abilities throughout the entire field. Though they tried, the Gator forwards could not beat the solid Eagle defense.

Merkey scored another goal with 12 minutes left in the game. The final score was 4-0.

The Eagles finished third in the county with a 8-3 record. The Boys’ Soccer team will continue their season into the playoffs.
