Johnny Crush: Swimming to Serve

Ben Howard, Staff Writer November 8, 2022
As any high school upperclassman knows, the decision of where you will commit the next four years of your life certainly is not an easy one; and yet Crush was faced with an even more difficult ultimatum. Where would his loyalties lie: with his family or his country?

Tiger Strong Builds Off Tiger Blast

Tiger Strong Builds Off Tiger Blast

Collin Deem, Staff Writer October 25, 2022
Who said that recess was over once you entered high school? Here at St. X we have brought back the fun for freshmen and sophomores for a single day in which they can enjoy one of the best memories our childhood has to offer us. I personally don’t think there is a better way to get to know the people you will be around for four years than participating in Tiger Blast. You would think that it would stop there, right? Well you’re wrong as starting last year St. X has implemented a very similar concept for sophomores which we know as Tiger Strong. It’s essentially the same thing but it just builds on the relationships that we have formed during the previous school year.

Tiger Mentor Program

Harris Overton, Staff Writer September 3, 2022
Every student at St. X has heard about the Tiger Mentor Program, but not many really know what it is. Created by Coach Glaser, Mr. Yochum, and Mr. Cottrell, the Tiger Mentors' main goal is to not only help new students at St. X understand what our school is about, but also to teach upperclassmen about leadership.
