Beaverton girls basketball faced their fiercest competitors this Tuesday at home during a varsity doubleheader against Southridge High School. Southridge was ranked first in the state and Beaverton was ranked third, so this particular game has been the most awaited match throughout the whole season. In past seasons, our girls team hasn’t been considered much of an opponent in the eyes of the talented Skyhawks, after losing to them all four games in the past two seasons.

However, this year our team gained a few crucial players and a new coach, Kathy Naro, that have turned the program around. The girls were determined to beat Southridge and freshman Alexa Borter said, “We watched a lot of film on them and practiced making sure we knew how to defend their plays and knew what we should run against them.”

It was one of the most intense games of…

The girls’ basketball team scored big this year with their new coach Kathy Adelman Naro. With over twenty years of coaching experience, Naro is qualified and has put her skills to good use with our girls’ varsity team. With all of the competitive teams in Beaverton’s Metro League, it was time for us to have a coach with the work ethic to bring the girls to victory.

Naro grew up playing basketball and during her time at Tigard High School she was the starting point guard and helped her team win the 1988 Class 3A championship. After that, Naro played at the University of Portland and had a great four-year career that made her very eager to keep playing. So, she took her skill from the court to the coach’s seat.

With inspiration from her father, Rick Adelman, who coached the Trail Blazers from 1988 to 1994, she…

At Beaverton, the numbers of homeless students are growing – and we aren’t the only ones. Across the district and across the state, the number of homeless students have grown to an all-time high of 22,541 – 5.6 percent increase from last year. Beaverton High School alone has around 90 reported homeless students. Social studies teacher Rita Morgan has decided to help support these students by forming Club Hope, “a new club to promote homeless awareness and support programs and projects to address our school’s homeless population.”

Ms. Morgan says that it was ‘kinda funny’ the way the club started. Founded by her and juniors Cameron Monfared and Ayden Fox, they say they all came up with similar ideas at separate times in separate ways. All united with the same passion, they worked together to combine their ideas and Club Hope was born.

The biggest topic that Club…

At eighteen years of age, high school students are expected to determine the rest of their lives. We are expected to choose one of the many overpriced colleges or universities our nation offers while inheriting the debt that comes along with it. And does the education we’re paying so much money for even get us a good enough job to help us pay off these loans?

Senior Nina Hambleton stated, “I think it’s ironic that they’re going to make me pay for a school that’s not even going to pay off my student debt.” Many of the acclaimed academic schools in our nation are overwhelmingly overpriced, which makes sense because they better your education and job opportunities. But what job could ever help us pay off $200,000, while also being a homeowner and supporting our families? It’s virtually impossible unless you win the lottery or suddenly inherit…
