The bowling team will continue selling World’s Finest Chocolates and sales will last from Oct. 21 to Nov. 22. They will be the only team to sell the bars this year.

The bowling club aims to strike down the competition this school year by hosting tryouts and bringing in new students to join. The tryouts were hosted on Monday, Oct. 1 and 7 at Allen Bowl from 8:30-10:00 p.m. 

“Tryouts are expected to go well this year,” bowling coach Karyn Prince said. “Approximately 10 new bowlers and 22 returning bowlers have shown an interest and attended the parent meeting last Tuesday night.”

With the team having a history of making state, the team encourages both returning and new members to tryout for the new season.

“It looks like a great start to the season,” senior Noah Cooper said “I feel like it will go really well. A lot of people have been showing up and having fun.”

The team this year will continue selling World’s Finest Chocolates and sales will last from Oct. 21 to Nov. 22. They will be the only team to sell the bars this year.

“The orchestra selling World’s Finest Chocolate last year the same time we did really hurt our fundraising efforts,” Prince said. “We are looking forward to having a successful fundraiser this year selling them.”

About the Contributors
Joeley Hedgcoxe, Staff Writer
Back in the journalism swing with new ambitions, sophomore Joeley Hedgcoxe is hitting The Red Ledger again as a photographer, going with God’s calling and making a change in her study habits this year. She’s a dedicated performer for the school’s Color Guard, and feels her best when she’s performing with the rest of her beloved team or surrounded by her houseplants. Her favorite movies are made by Wes Anderson, and she’s a music lover at heart, never leaving home without her earbuds. Her favorite song is Alien Boy by Oliver Tree, and she’s a huge fan of Joji, Bastille, and Gorillaz. She spends her free time on facetime calls with friends, listening to music, painting or spinning her guard equipment outside. Whether she’s a plant lover, performer, photographer, or just herself, Joeley wouldn’t change anything about her.
Grace Nguyen, Section Editor
Fueled daily by three iced vanilla coffees, standing at 5’2”, Grace Nguyen will walk into the E103 door with no problem. Grace is entering senior year, and the only reason she is believed to have survived high school is because of the napping couch in the photography studio. During her time on staff, Grace has been to almost every football game, win or loss, and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Yes, Grace has been tackled by football players, run over by coaches, and body slammed by referees. Nonetheless, Grace will confidently walk on the field this year, bruises and all, alongside her sideline media team. Stepping outside the newsroom, which is rare, Grace enjoys playing softball, hanging out with family and friends, and finding excuses to go to every $3 Pazookie Tuesdays at BJ’s. After high school, Grace hopes to pursue a career in sports photojournalism, so watch out for her still getting run over by athletes on ESPN in the years to come. Although it’s bittersweet to leave newspaper upon graduation, Grace is thankful for all the opportunities that she’s had on staff. Through The Red Ledger, Grace created long-lasting friendships and won a lot of awards that she never imagined was possible. Grace hopes that current and future staffers will think of this national-award-winning publication the same way as she did–a second family and their home away from home.
