Baseball season is among us and the Eagles have started out strong. Senior pitcher, Jordy Adams responded,"The season has gone well, we had a few slips, but overall I’m satisfied with the results so far.” The Eagles’ record so far is 8-2 with many impressive blowout wins against Franklinton and Slidell where they dominated 11-0 and 15-5. Their only losses are to St. Paul and Destrehan. Adams believes they have a great shot this year to go all the way to state. The Eagles are led by their team captains, seniors Landon Roberts and Gabe Schenk.

Coach Miller is very proud of the Eagles Soccer team for achieving new heights and making history. This year the Eagles beat Ben Franklin 3 to 1 at their home field in New Orleans on Friday, February 3 a very cold and rainy day. Ben Franklin is a former state champion and usually a Top 5 team in Division II. The Eagles take a big hit losing 10 seniors graduating, but there is a large group of juniors returning to lead the team next year. The juniors have the same goals with a focus on making school history. Beau Chene, the team that beat the Eagles in the 2nd round 1-4, made it to the championship where they lost 1-3 to Holy Cross.

At the most recent meet, which was held at Woodlawn High, they were originally declared runner-up, but after recalculation of the scores they earned first place and tool home the team trophy. The team has been working very hard to get to where they are now, from working out every day to focusing on their weight class.

 The end of senior year, the excitement you feel cannot be described. You have finally made it to your last year of high school and you are only months away from walking across the stage that will give you endless opportunities, but in those few months, there is a lot that must be done. Yes, school becomes very stressful very fast at the end, because you have to balance college applications, schoolwork, sports, extracurricular, volunteering, sleep, and a social life. No matter how stressful it is, you can breathe a huge sigh of relief once you have gone through all the obstacles like preparing for AP exams, finals, or paying for graduation supply. As a senior, I think it’s most important to reflect on your most memorable memories you have had throughout your high school career. Even though this is where senioritis hit the most try to enjoy being a senior. Also, the last few months of your senior year to most valuable so make it count and be patient.

Wrestling

Written by Courtney Rivett

    

Luis Almonte, captain of the wrestling team, explained during an interview a few things people might not realize about wrestling.  The hardest thing about wrestling is the practices because you have to keep everyone motivated to keep working and to keep pushing forward.  When the team faces a big rival team like Brother Martin, they will have extra practices so they can work on techniques that they might not be the greatest at, despite already having 12 and a half hours of practice a week not including the tournaments.   When working they must keep physically fit during practices so they preform drills.

   The boys’ soccer team is coming into 2018 with a bang being 5 wins, 8 losses, 6 ties and the 15th seed making it into the playoffs. They play Woodlawn at home on Wednesday, Jan 24th for their big district game at 6:00pm. It should be a challenging game for the Eagles as Woodlawn is a tough team with 9 wins and 3 losses and the Eagles have a few players on the injured list at this time.

Coming off their first playoff appearance since 1996 the Eagles are looking to continue their success. They entered the season coming off big changes in the off-season. Coach John Capps took over the reigns of head coach while losing 4 starters from the previous season. However, coming into the season, Coach Capps is very optimistic on the young core of guys he has in the program.  The main focus for the team is to get experience and build chemistry playing as a unit.  The Eagles are doing pretty well right now, sitting at 14-9 on the year.  Coming off a blowout win against district opponent Central, the Eagles surged to end the first half and dominated the second half on a great shooting night.  The team believes that it was arguably their most complete game yet on both ends on the court. The game featured great performances by Bryan Bayonne and Lawrence Pierre who scored 23 and 21 points respectively. The Eagles have upcoming games against Denham Springs on January 24 and Zachary on January 26. Come out and support our Eagles!

New Years Resolutions

 

Posted Jan 30, 2018

 

Written by Brittani Schweinefus

    

New Year’s resolution starts on January 1st of the new year. It’s a nationwide tradition that almost everyone participates in. Usually some resolutions start with “go to the gym and get in shape.” We all know the ‘promise’ we make to ourselves doesn’t really work out. On New Year’s, we look back on past failures to change. We rationalize that it was “the old me” who failed to change, but this year will be different. A full 40 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, and fortunately for them, it’s easy for them to achieve it. Instead of making a resolution that you are not going to keep, I suggest start small and think of what you can do differently each day and go from there.

Christmas break. It’s what you along with the whole student body has been looking forward to since August. The two and a half weeks of freedom and chance to let off steam before going back to school in the New Year. Some people travel, visit family and friends, enjoy their vacation, or do all three. Of course it flies by and it’s gone in the blink of an eye, and before you know it it’s already January.  January begins new year resolutions and returning to classes. Getting that remind text about going back to school is always good news for some while others have to work on their motivation. Either way, it is always nice to have a break and spend time socializing while it lasted.

Picture a scene of one with one’s closest friends. Everyone is laughing and smiling, hot chocolates in hand, faces lit up by the light of the bonfire. There is so much to look forward to in this new season! Halloween is a season of dressing up and trick-or-treating (trying to get as much candy as possible with minimal dirty looks). The haunted houses, ghost stories, scary movies that will always give you nightmares, the leaves falling, getting dressed for the homecoming dance, the smell of smoke from the bonfire stuck on your favorite jacket.
Summer’s chapter has officially ended and a new one is beginning. So head on over to Starbucks, grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and get ready – fall is in full swing!

Halloween Festivities
Posted October 12, 2017
Written by Emma Alessi
 

High school is ultimately remembered by the memories made, and "memory is the dairy we all carry about with us" (Oscar Wilde). Remembering that, homecoming can be the chance to create a lasting memory of one’s time in high school, but it doesn’t just have to happen at the dance. In my own experience, the period of time around homecoming when the weather is getting chilly and people are looking for dates is what makes this month catchy.
The excitement for homecoming is prevalent long before, with dress shopping, asking someone to the dance, and reserving a restaurant. The dance, unlike last year, is on Saturday night, giving students more time to get dressed, go out to eat with their dates or friends, etc. The actual homecoming dance may be a cliché under which some don’t want to fall, or not one’s "cup of tea", but there are still different ways to have fun this October. These include during Homecoming week where each day has a different theme to dress up as, the game on Friday, the school haunted house in the cafeteria, or even just fall festivities outside from school. But if one wants to go where there is music and people, be there October 21st for Homecoming!

    Live Oak High School has been lucky enough to receive the National Math and Science Initiative, sponsored by Exxon Mobile. The NMSI is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 with the goal preparing students for college and the workforce. The level of succeeding students especially in the fields of mathematics and science are not nearly has high as this country needs them to be, that is where the NMSI comes into play to give students those extras tools they need to succeed or even over achieve. On September 28th in 8th hour certain students were invited to an ice cream banquet to celebrate the news. Here is when they can learn about the wonderful opportunities the grant has to offer for students. The NMSI offers tremendous support for AP students such as covering 50% of exam cost, earning 100$ for every 3, 4, and 5 earned on AP exams, and finally getting specialized training and supplies for the teachers teaching these courses. This will be a 3-year partnership that will drastically improve students AP scores. Their main focus is in science, technology, engineering, and math but, that does not mean they don’t have an impacting effect on those in English or Art courses. Live Oak is anticipating great results just in the first year from the impact this grant will have on all of their students.

Assistant Coach Peterson believes that our high school football team has started this season very strong and expects to continue the growth and learning on the field.  He has a positive outlook on the rest of the season and says “we are not where we need to be just yet, but we are getting there and preparing for post-season”.


Senior Dylan Rea says,  “We started well with 2 wins and had 2 other close games that just didn't go our way.  We will need to take advantage of the chances within the game in order to become a stronger contender for playoffs.” Ja'cobey Lee, one of the senior captains belives “it was going good up until the last two weeks where we hit a rough spot.  We will have to refocus our team efforts and make the needed adjustments for the rest of district action”. Another player, Seth Edelman, wants to inspire the team and “keep pushing forward, and play for the guy next to you”.

The Drop '17

Written by Courtney Rivett
 

On August 18 th , 2017, the student body gathered for a glowing night of music and friends.  As you walked in you were handed glow sticks.  The strobe lights were bright and you could feel the music vibrating the floor as soon as you walked in.  The environment surrounding you was friendly.  Everyone was dancing and singing along to all the latest music and a couple of songs no one has heard in a while, but somehow everyone still knew the words.  If people weren’t dancing they were getting something to drink because they were so exhausted from dancing until they couldn’t feel their legs anymore.  The temperature was HOT and even hotter in certain areas of the dance floor.  When you started dancing all your worries slipped away because all you could think about was having fun with your friends and even people you had never met before.  The Drop '17 was an experience that everyone enjoyed.  The Drop was the highlight of August for many students. The party doesn’t stop there! On Friday, December 1st, 2017, LOH Publications will be hosting “The Drop Continued” to keep the party going all year long!

Freshmen are embarking on a new adventure, sophomores are battling their final year in P.E., juniors have set high expectations as upperclassmen, and many seniors have already been diagnosed with senioritis. Some are simply trying to get by until graduation, but this is the year to make your mark.
