Tennis practice overlapped with musical practice for about two weeks. “I had to miss a few practices but it was approved by my coach and Mr. Rund,” O’Leary said. Also being a member of Silver Streak, one of the advanced show choirs, on some Thursday he would go from either tennis or musical practice straight to show choir at 6:30. On those nights, he would not get home past 9:30. O’Leary is also taking an AP class, APLAC. “The class is very interesting although sometimes stressful and tedious,” said O’Leary O’Leary is taking interesting classes during the day, principles of engineering, physics and pre-calc.
