Rowdy Beaman: Our Own Michael Phelps

Did you know that the 6 foot ninth grader Rowdy Beaman was on Salem Hill’s swim team? Well you do now! He’s been practicing 20 hours a week! Could you do that?

The Lobo Howl got a chance to interview Rowdy and ask him questions about swimming. He started swimming about three years ago, because his dad told him he would be good at it. His dad was correct, because at Rowdy’s first high school meet he broke four records. He broke the 500 free time in 5.31.73 and the 200 free time in 2.06.99. He didn’t know the other times for the other two, but they were the 400 and 200 free relays.

For this issue The Lobo Howl decided to do something a little different to mix it up. Instead of asking the students, we thought it would be fun to get the teacher’s answers. We went around and asked twenty random teachers what their favorite Thanksgiving dish is. For some of the teachers they couldn’t decide on one single dish.

The Lobo Howl had the opportunity to talk to some of our schools lunch staff, and were able to find the inside scoop on our school lunch. When asked what their favorite meals are to serve, they answered rice bowls. Did you know our school serves three different kinds of rice bowls? At lunch they rotate through Sweet and Sour chicken, Mandarin Orange chicken, and Teriyaki chicken. They sometimes will even serve fortune cookies and/or egg rolls to go along with them.

By Sawyer Hamilton—Reporter

There are only a few words to describe our school's band. Incredible, Thrilling, and Rhapsody. On Thursday November 10th, the school's band had the privilege of performing with Spanish Fork High's band. At the beginning, the high school did a few pieces, but then they combined with the 9th graders for a song from The Incredibles, “The Incredibles Theme”. Afterwards they called up the 8th graders to perform “Bella's Lullaby” from the popular book and movie series Twilight, it the song which was created to be played on the piano but was soon changed so all instruments could do it.
