HAPPY CAMPERS “I can proudly say that camp made me the person I am today,” freshman Alexa Ehrenfreund said. Some popular camps that Chaparral students attend are Camp Swift, Sky Y, Young Life, Montlure, and Blue Star. Camp Swift is a camp for underprivileged children who cannot afford to go to camp. Students who volunteer as counselors donate $250 a session to help raise the funds for the campers to be able to attend. Located in Prescott, the camp offers four-day sessions. “It’s nice to know that you have affected someone and could have changed their lives,” said senior Sarah Bull, a counselor at Camp Swift. Another popular camp for students, Sky-Y, is a YMCA camp that has been around for more than 70 years and promotes the four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The camp offers activities like high ropes courses, tower, paint ball, archery, sports, games, and canoeing. “Sky-Y is like a second home to me, and everyone up there is considered part of my family,” senior Jen Alderson said. Blue Star is a Jewish summer camp that is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The camp empowers campers to establish independence, self-esteem, and life-long friendships. Ehrenfreund, went there for five weeks.

“I wanted to go to Blue Star after I was talking with my best friend Nina Kravetz one day at religious school. She was talking about camp, and she told me one story, and the next thing I knew I was on a plane to North Carolina,” says Ehrenfreund. Friendship is a main focus at Blue Star. The campers that go make new friends of all ages. At camps with all of the activities, there is such a large opportunity of making new friends. If the campers are shy or not that outgoing, camp is a good place for them to expand their social skills. “[The people I met at camp] are the people I cry to, the people that make me cry, the people I laugh at, the people who make me laugh, the people I love, and the people who taught me how to love,” said Ehrenfreund. At a typical camp, campers play games, do sports, go hiking, and hang out with friends. After that the campers sing a few songs and then go to an activity. Later on they do more activities and play night games. Usually once a week there is a dance for all of the campers. Common camp rules are no drugs or alcohol. “It's a place where I can totally be myself, make mistakes, regret a lot, learn from everything, prepare me for the real world, and make friends that I can count on for everything,” says Ehrenfreund. -­Kaci Melidoni staffer


an aversion to

introversion The truth behind society’s prejudice against those who are ‘shy’ -­Alex Shea editor-­in-­chief -­Illustration by Haley Schaub

The quiet, studious boy in the back of the class, the researcher spending long hours in the lab, oh, and the President of the United States have a defining trait in common—introversion. With President Obama recently determined by many psychologists to show traits of a true introvert, it begs the question: What actually defines ones extroversion or introversion? To be introverted or extroverted is not a categorical identification, but rather a spectrum in which everyone falls in a different spot; their very own niche. In actuality, only about 30 percent of high schoolers are identified as introverted while many of are closer to being ‘omniverted’ rather than a more extreme introvert. It is a common belief that this 70/30 ratio is one that is solidified throughout all age groups, but this has been proven incorrect with new studies showing a more 50/50 split amongst adult. So if all this is true, why is our society geared towards the success of extroverts? “I think that a lot of professional advancement comes from social connections. Because introverts are not naturally social, they do not make the connections necessary for the career ladder climb,” introverted Lanni Solochek, senior, provides a answer. It is believed that the shift to an extro-dominant society was a reaction to the Industrial Revolution, in which people were suddenly migrating to the cities and the jobs were in high demand. This created the competitive work field we know today where the one who speaks up is the one who moves up. “Extroversion will be the key to my success because the ability to speak and influence people as a group is a large part of the battle for success,” extroverted senior Zach Buzzard explains his plans for his place in the work force. Prior to this shift, introverts, if anyone, were a more respected clan versus the talkative social group, thought to be primitive and uninsightful. Think about the Abraham Lincolns’ and the Albert Einsteins’ of the world who were known to be quiet and introspective. These traits have always chalked up as ‘shy,’ a common misidentification of introverts. An interesting new development shows that level of extroversion is much more than a personality trait, but a way your brain functions. According to a study conducted by Marti Olsen Laney, PsyD, the brain’s interpretation of external stimulation is vastly different based on extroversion. Using PET scans, Laney’s team mapped out the blood pathways of introvert’s brains versus those of extroverts to show which parts were most active during certain experiences. The study showed the blood pathways of an introvert to be long and complicated, going through the parts of the brain that work with inter-

nal experiences, such as remembering, problem solving, and personal feelings. This directly opposes the extrovert’s blood pathway, which was much shorter and focuses on the physical senses of surroundings, such as visual, auditory, touch, and smell. Now stay with me, readers, because this shows more about the bodily differences based on extroversion than is immediately obvious. Because of these completely different pathways, the two body types require completely different neurotransmitters. Extroverts are reliant on dopamine, and lots of it. Dopamine is created by adrenaline, which is a reaction to interacting with large amounts of people. This dependence on dopamine explains the extrovert’s need to interact with his surrounding, being more prone to moving and being alert. On the other hand, introverts are very sensitive to dopamine and, therefore, when too much is released (usually from social activity), they physically, and most likely emotionally, feel overwhelmed. Their bodies, in contrast, are very dependent on acetylcholine, which is associated with calmness, alertness, and voluntary movement. Now that this physiological difference has been discovered proving that personality is not a choice, why is the bias against a good half of our society so accepted? The common belief is that extroverts are more capable of being assertive, getting the job done, and getting a group of people to work together. It is this thought process that makes introverts more likely to be passed up for supervisor positions, but is this a good basis to make a decision? Introverts report having no trouble being assertive, but only on the logical basis. Extroverts invest their emotions into decisions, so they feel more personally attacked when an employee fails them. Employees of introverts report more feelings of personal creativity than those who work for extroverts. Perhaps an introvert’s ability to listen and comprehend someone else’s work logically and get excited for someone rather than with them explains this relationship. Those who work for extroverts are much more to likely feel overshadowed by their employer’s own expression of ideas. Perhaps we can stick with this progressive idea of working together and creating work and school environments geared towards the group, but maybe with a bit more emphasis on the diversity within that group. There are the introverts, the extroverts, the omniverts, the shy bookworms, the talkative cheerleaders, the OCD, ADD, depressed and behaviorally problematic, but who says we need to conform to one way of doing things? Let your freak-flag fly, be any combination of the above mentioned or something totally new. Just be aware that everyone is trying to do the same thing—find their niche. Summer 2012

Kony 2012: The Worst?

I AN ADMIRABLE goal TOMS is a charity that was formed on a simple premise: buy a pair of shoes and a pair will be given to a child in need. There is no hidden information or twisted fact. “Every person who has TOMS can tell you what the company is about and how neat it is that their shoes have helped a child in need. TOMS is more than just a company; it’s a movement to get people involved in giving back,” said senior Hannah Lewellen. With TOMS, there is no question about what percentage goes to charity or if your money is being put to good use. “People have a right to be skeptical of charities because they want to know where their money is going. TOMS does a great job of letting people know what they are doing throughout the world by sharing videos and photos of their giving trips or telling the story of a child they met. They are constantly letting their consumers know what a difference they are making and how important your purchases are,” said Lewellen. Supporters of a charity deserve this kind of honesty from the organization to which they are donating. They deserve to know how their money is being spent, and the truly admirable charities do not hide this information. Many of today’s popular charities are popular for a reason. Most of them are serving a good cause and are using their funds in an effective manner. While it’s a shame that people don’t always donate purely out of the goodness of their hearts, it’s acceptable to donate just because you want to fit in with current trends. There’s no shame in joining a movement—just make sure that movement is worthwhile. -­Erika Mionis sports editor

t’s easy to jump on the bandwagon without really knowing what you’re supporting. KONY 2012 is a perfect example. KONY 2012 is a campaign run by the charity Invisible Children, which has been active since 2003. The charity was formed when three filmmakers went to East Africa and filmed a documentary about the tyrant Joseph Kony and the cruelty he inflicted on Ugandan citizens. Kony recruited children for his armies, sometimes forcing them to kill their own families before joining him. At this time, Uganda was riddled with internal conflict and civil wars. Invisible Children aimed to raise awareness about this issue, hoping to bring justice to Kony and restoring peace to those he affected. But that’s just it – awareness. Invisible Children is an awareness charity. They are not on the ground in Africa searching under every tree root for Joseph Kony. Instead, the largest portion of their funds (about 43 percent) goes towards awareness programs. “The truth about Invisible Children is that we are not an aid organization,” said Jedidiah Jenkins, Invisible Children’s Director of Ideology, “and we don’t intend to be. I think people think we’re over there delivering shoes or food. But we are an advocacy and awareness organization.” Perhaps the most confusing thing about the purpose of the KONY 2012 campaign is the fact that Kony has not been in power since 2006. In 2006, he was chased from Uganda by the Ugandan military, effectively ending the war in northern Uganda. Kony still has some power in neighboring countries, but his influence is minimal. “You have to understand that [Kony] has a tiny force scattered in a vast jungle area across three countries,” said Michael Wilkerson, a journalist and guest speaker on NPR. If Invisible Children had made it a point to show all of the facts in their video, and not just the facts that suit their agenda, it is possible that they would have fewer supporters. “[The KONY 2012 video] oversimplified an issue and made people think that they completely understood this really complicated thing that’s going on in Africa. People think that supporting the cause and wearing shirts that say ‘KONY 2012’ will stop this criminal who lives thousands of miles away who we have no influence over. [There’s] a giant misunderstanding of this organization and what it’s trying to accomplish,” said junior Alex Huesing. Invisible Children is a worthwhile charity and their goal is admirable; they hope to raise awareness about the issue, spurring Washington to act and capture Joseph Kony once and for all. However, the viral video is packed with propaganda and a smug indie feel, giving many young supporters the wrong impression. -­Erika Mionis sports editor

Advising the District:

examining the impact that Student Advisory Board has had on our student body

As a student at Chaparral, I knew almost nothing about the Student Advisory Board. I knew it existed and that it is run by students who want to “change” our school district’s policy, but I had no idea how they wanted to change it. Do they actually represent my views as a student in the Scottsdale Unified School District? Or are they just part of the Board so they can put it on their college application? From what I’ve been able to see, the answer is that it’s a little bit of both. “Originally there was supposed to be a senior boy and girl and junior boy and girl from each high school but we accepted most people who applied,” explained senior Bryan Dinner, president of the Student Advisory Board. “We want people who are serious about getting involved and making a difference, and we want people over the long haul so they can make a difference.” In a nutshell, the Student Advisory Board is a group of 32 students from Chaparral, Desert Mountain, Arcadia, Saguaro, and Coronado along with two District representatives—Dr. Andi Fourlis, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning, and Dr. Jeff Thomas, associate superintendent—who meet every other Wednesday to talk about recent topics brought up at the District. “It does a good job of serving its purpose: giving student perspective to what’s going on, and it’s started a communication, a conversation between District and students that was never there before,” Dinner said. The problem is that most high school students don’t have the motivation, time, energy or concern to use that communication. Yes, we complain endlessly about what our teachers, administrators, and district do, but most of us don’t actually intend to change it. But everyone agrees that as students we should have the chance to voice our opinions, especially when the District decides to do something that we as students realize is not going to be an effective policy. In 2010, SUSD students watched as our teachers were given new technology that was somewhat ineffective. We watched our teachers struggle with digital projectors, scribble on airliners, and shout into new microphones. “When we asked students how we could improve, they said, ‘Stop buying technology for every teacher and sticking it in their classroom when they don’t use it. That’s a waste of money.’ We write technology plans, but we’ve never asked a kid ‘what type of technology would you need to be successful as a student?’” says Dr. Fourlis.

This year, the main focus of the Student Advisory Board has been implementing a survey that would allow students to give feedback about their teachers. Before you start imagining a glorified version of Rate-your-teacher. com, keep in mind that this survey has 33 questions about the teacher, its results will be redistributed to the teachers, and at this point, students have no power over their teachers’ jobs. The goal of the survey is to let teachers know what their classroom is like from a student perspective. “Right now it is purely to give the teachers feedback so they can become better teachers; we are not at a place where it could be used for evaluation. If the committee meets and says ‘look this is really good,’ then it could be, but that’s nothing for us to decide at this point,” said Dinner. As far as the future, it’s hard to say whether the survey will ever actually make any changes. Set aside the Teacher Association, which according to Dr. Fourlis, has been receiving mixed feelings from teacher groups about the survey, and we are faced with the fact that some students have trouble differentiating between a good teacher and a teacher they like or a bad teacher and a teacher who makes them think. The District’s solution to this problem is to give students a very small voice. “The governing board adopted a model [for teacher evaluations.] 65 percent of a teacher’s evaluation at the end of the year is based on the evaluation from their administrator, 33 percent of their evaluation is based on student learning results [based upon test scores], 2 percent is climate and culture. And that 2 percent is where the student survey will fall,” Five SAB representatives at the Parada Del Sol (below)

explains Dr. Fourlis. Personally, I am torn. I think that it is important to use our voices as students and show our opinions. But as we age, our opinions will change. Someday we may be teachers or administrators with different goals and different views of the issues that we feel so strongly about now. That’s the underlying problem with the SAB; students grow up. While members of the district and teachers at our schools can stay in the same job for 20-30 years, students only have four years to make a “change.” And then we graduate, we move on, we don’t go back to our high school to keep fighting for a cause because we start fighting for new ones. “I won’t be touching that committee; I will be on the other side of the country,” says Dinner, in reference to the committee reviewing the Teacher Survey. With its President graduating, low participation from some high schools, and minimal voice in the District, has the SAB accomplished…anything? I say yes. The SAB has opened (maybe cracked) the door to giving student input on the big issues of our district. Whether anything actually changes depends on how involved students are willing to get. Before SAB, if you had a problem, you had a problem. Now, even if you can’t get the problem solved, you can at least learn why things are the way they are. It makes talking to the District easier. If the SAB can continue to gain support in the next few years and expand to include more students, it might be able to make a difference. Even now, by pioneering the student-teacher survey, SAB is trying to give students a voice. Why not use it? -­Emily Bell opinions editor

Orchestrated PRESENTATION

D

r. Harrah, Chaparral’s Orchestra teacher for three years, is an experienced musician who loves teaching. She has experience working with the Arizona Opera, Phoenix Symphony, and West Valley Symphony. Because of her skills and dedication that she has for orchestra, a strong bond has formed between her and her student, three of whom have evolved as leaders.

VIOLIST

Senior Taylor Holmes, one of Dr. Harrah’s dedicated violist, is an example of an excelling musician. Holmes has been playing since she was 2003, so she has some experience under her belt. “I’ve been playing since fourth grade and I have made a lot of friends through it, so I decided to keep playing through high school...I chose to play the viola because I didn’t want to play the violin and well, it’s smaller than the cello,” Holmes explained. Being 1st chair Viola, she takes on the role of a leader in her section. She is responsible for keeping her section staying in harmony and sync. “When we’re practicing, they usually look to me for stylistic techniques to sound and look uniform... Being a senior, I can set and example of the dedication it takes to be in orchestra,” elaborated Holmes.

VIOLINIST

Vincent Nguyen is a talented senior in Dr. Harrah’s Orchestra class. “I started in the fourth grade and had already played the piano, so it was suitable for me. Both instruments are big on solo repertoire. Also, it’s the main instrument on Orchestra, so I wanted to take on that role,” stated Nguyen. Nguyen is the 1st chair violinist of Chaparral’s orchestra, and takes his position very seriously. “I wanted to play the violin and play with a group. I wanted to be involved and go on all the trips,” said Nguyen. It is Nguyen’s job to lead his section to perfection. The others look to him for advice and techniques that can make them stronger as a whole. “We work on being together during sectionals and I felt that by leading my own section, I [could] lead [the orchestra] as a whole. We’ve improved since the beginning of year because of it,” said Nguyen. He plays a great part in how well and together each musician is. “In orchestra they really depend on me to lead them, I show them how to play things and what fingers to use [for each note],” Nguyen said. 16

CELLIST

Madeline Krull, a senior Orchestra member, has been playing the cello since she was in fourth grade. Being orchestra was not something Krull had planned. “I joined orchestra because it was required to join a music program in the fourth grade,” stated Krull. Luckily, Krull was intrigued by the beautiful sound that came out of playing the cello. “When I first heard it, I thought it was really pretty,” Krull said. It was a good thing that music influenced Krull so immensely, because she stuck with it all the way through high school. Now, as a senior, Krull has earned the position of first cello in her section. Each member truly looks up to her because of the dedication she has shown and the talent that has come out practicing so much. “My section’s not afraid to ask me questions about music and I help them with anything that’s difficult,” Krull expressed. One of the most important details of each section is that all members and instruments are in complete harmony at all times. As a leader, it is extremely important that Krull is working to her full potential to set an example for her peers. Her strong relationship with her peers is a big part of having control and keeping her section uniform. “We play in harmony because we’re really close as a section,” said Krull To make sure that their skills are always the best they can be, Krull and her section take part in other musical activities. “Some of us are involved in youth orchestra and the Phoenix Symphony. Then we have separate quartets that we perform in. Also, we do private lessons...It has made [high school] better,” Krull stated. -­Alex Grunwald staffer


Hitting  the  High  Note Isabel Carter-Kahn, a junior, has been playing the viola since she was in third grade. She knew that she wanted to be in the orchestra at Phoenix Country Day School but did not know what instrument to play. “The school orchestra is pretty mediocre and the violists were the best and they sounded the best. For ten-year-old-me, that was the decision point,” Carter-Kahn says. Isabel is in the Phoenix Youth Symphony (PYS), an orchestra aimed directly at students who take what they play very seriously. There are three levels of PYS, string orchestra, symphonette orchestra, and youth orchestra. She first auditioned to be part of this prestigious group after seventh grade, and was in the string orchestra during her eighth grade year. Since ninth grade, she has been in the symphonette orchestra, which is the second highest level out of the three. Unlike the violinists, who are determined by I violin or II violin, violists are arranged in seating (i.e. first chair, second chair). “I remember my first year in symphonette, I was pretty preoccupied with seating, and I’ve been first chair for a while now, and it really doesn’t matter,” Carter-Kahn elaborates. “Since there are so few violists, everyone just sits up front anyways.” Auditioning for

Phoenix Youth Symphony is not an easy task. Youth Symphony is the most selective with only four violists this year, meaning that earning a spot requires skill and hard work. “Symphonette is not as selective, but you need to be at that level, and if you’re not, then you’re not going to get in, “ Carter-Kahn says. For symphonette, one must know four sharps and four flats and also perform a two-minute solo that showcases the skills the student has and what they can do. “If you’re getting into symphonette, you almost always have a private instructor, so they will guide you on what piece to pick [for the audition],” says Carter-Kahn. In order to get into the youth orchestra, one must know all three-octave scales-major and minor. Carter-Kahn is going to audition for Youth Orchestra this year in hope of playing a higher level. “The conductor, Keirtaro Harado, is really great. I had the opportunity to have him as my conductor at regionals this year, and that was really awesome,” Carter-Kahn said. Carter-Kahn had to choose between Latin and symphonic orchestra at school since both were only offered during the same period. Since she had to take Latin, she is doing an independent study with Dr. Harrah, the school orchestra teacher, so she can play in PYS. During Carter-Kahn’s first year of playing the viola she wanted to quit, but it was her mom’s persistence and conductor’s encouragement that kept her from stopping altogether, and kept her pursuing her talent. I don’t think I ever wanted to fully quit. I think that what kept me from quitting is the feeling that you get once you get a piece down, and it’s really good. It’s a good accomplishment,” Carter-Kahn says.

Even though Carter-Kahn wanted to quit during her first year of playing the viola, her feels have changed since then and now she loves it. She ways that the best thing about playing and being in orchestra is the people. Carter-Kahn was considering going to college specifically for the viola last year, but then realized that her academics were more important and that she wanted to do more than just play the viola. “At the end of [last year] I realized that I didn’t want to give up academics… school comes first for me. I don’t want to major in [the viola], but I definitely want to be very active in it,” Carter-Kahn explains. Instead of majoring in performing, CarterKahn would like to study some science in college,. “I’m most interested in astronomy, but I’m also interested in political science, so I don’t really know,” Carter-Kahn said. In the future, Carter-Kahn would like to maybe form a chamber group (a group of only a few orchestra players playing a piece) or play in a city or traveling orchestra. She would probably form a group with friends who are musicians too. “When you’re involved in music classes and groups, it’s very easy to make friends, and if you’re missing a certain instrument you can always just ask around to find someone,” Carter-Kahn said. -­Julie Woudenberg Staff writer Summer 2012 Arts & Entertainment

Q: When did you first start to throw discus? A: This is my first year. I started because Coach McKenna saw me play basketball and basically told me I could be really good at it. He had been trying to get me to do it since the beginning of my junior year and I finally agreed to it this year. [Throwing] is still uncomfortable for me since it is my first year, but I still manage to be first or second in most of my meets. Q: Did your friends and family have any input on your decision to throw discus? A: Not really, but they were kind of surprised when I told them I was doing it because I have always been a one sport person. Q: Do you compete outside of school? A: I have been to two invitationals this year already. For my first one, which was the nationally recognized Chandler Rotary, I won first place in my flight of 35 other top discus throwers. Q: What do you hope to do in the future with the sport? A: I just hope to be the best I can be by the end of the season. There are a few more invitationals and meets and I hope to place top three for the rest of the season. Since this is not my main sport and I am already signed to CSUB for basketball, I don’t expect anything in terms of college.

Q: When did you first start to run sprints? A: I started doing sprints in fourth and fifth grade. I started running for the City of Scottsdale. My mom got me involved. Running sprints came naturally to me. Last year I joined Chaparral track and about half-way through the season I realized that it could be something that could get me to college, so I really started taking it seriously this year.

Q: Do you compete outside of school? A: I have never done any outside of school track programs. However, this year I am considering running for an elite track team. My cousin has been an outside coach to me, helping me with hurdles. Q: What do you hope to do in the future with the sport? A: By the end of my high school career I plan on going to State, but if I become fast enough I would like to get some kind of scholarship to go to college and run track.

Q:When did you first start high-jumping? A: I started when I was in seventh grade, so I was thirteen. It was a school team, and my sister did it throughout middle school and high school, so I got started through that and I actually really enjoyed it. Q: What’s your favorite thing about high-jumping? A: I like how easy it was to pick up. I used to do cheer, so in a way it’s kind of like that because you have to bend your back and you work on your form. Q: Have you been to any competitions? A: I’ve been to state all four years. State is actually a really difficult one to place in because they have the starting height at five feet and that’s where most people have their highest height. Q: Any funny stories? A: When I was a freshman and [my sister] was a senior, she would get mad when I beat her. I would be so proud of myself. Q: Do you hope to high-jump in the future? A: I’ve considered doing it in college because I think it could be really fun if I could get a college scholarship for it.

Q: When did you first start to throw discus? A: I first started discus my sophomore year when my friend told me to come out for track, as he had been recruited by Coach Tillet from the wrestling team. It took quite a while to get used to, I would say about four months of constant practice before I was comfortable. Photo: Courtney Foltz

Q: How have you distinguished yourself on the team? A: On the Chaparral track team I became number one about a quarter of the way through the season and have been there ever since. I was the only thrower to go to state for the past two years and have placed in the top 10 in the state. Q: Do you compete outside of school? A: I went to Sacramento, California, for a training camp over the summer. There were many well-known people who helped work on technique and drills. One of the most famous was John Godina, four-time world champion in the shot put.

Rugby on the Rise Rugby  is  gaining  popularity  among  America’s  youth You only need a ball, a sense of risk, and a tough mentality to play the sport of rugby. Rugby is an established sport in the United Kingdom that has captured the attention of athletes across the world. “Rugby is the only sport in the entire world where you can break someone’s nose during a match but share dinner with them later that night like nothing happened,” former rugby player Mike Kettle said. Similarities are common among football and rugby as a result of the sport’s history. “In a lot of ways [football and rugby are] the same. We play on the same type of fields and we basically use the same type of goalposts. Our balls are very similar and the tackling is also similar, but I prefer rugby because it is a continuous game that makes players think more on their feet,” ASU Rugby player Whitney Diem said. Dylan Audsley, the kicker for the Chaparral football team, plays for a National men’s rugby team and has progressively gained success. Audsley is from England and has an older brother, Barnaby, who also plays rugby. “I play for the Tempe Men’s Rugby Club, but I am also a National USA U18 player. I am currently on tour in England and will travel to South America this summer. There are many colleges in the U.S that offer extra financial aid to rugby players. I know Cal Berkeley offers a few scholarships every year. You need to be multitalented and very determined [to be a rugby player]. You have to be able to pass the ball, run with the ball, [and] tackle. You also need to be fast, strong, brave, fit, and above all you need to be totally committed in every area of the game,” Audsley said. Since 1975, the Arizona State University men’s rugby team has been a sports program for college students. Currently the team has seven coaches and over 90 players. ASU also has a women’s rugby team. “I started playing rugby when I was nine because my dad played and I lived in [England] where rugby is very popular,” Audsley said.

Despite the aggressiveness of the sport, players enjoy themselves and gain memorable experiences. “In a tackle I stood up, but a boy who tackled me was still hanging on to my shorts. As a result of this, they were pulled off, and I played with nothing but compression shorts on for about five minutes,” Audsley added. Despite the time commitment, the players still find time for fun. “The whole team is a riot. Road trips, the Camp Tonotozona trip [for ASU Rugby team], team parties and even game nights are all fun. Your rugby team is your family so it’s impossible not to have a good time,” ASU Rugby player Olivia Huesing said. American rugby is slowly gaining popularity. The sport currently boasts the men’s national team, the Eagles. The Eagles represent the USA at the international level, with many athletes coming through All-American rugby teams. USA Rugby has sent the Eagles across the world, enabling our athletes to represent the USA since 1975. “Rugby’s popularity is definitely on the rise. USA Rugby has been campaigning in school to get PE coaches, kids, and parents interested in this great up-and-coming sport,” Huesing said. Rugby is a growing sport in the U.S. and is very popular in multiple nations across the world. Today, 97 nations have rugby unions and more than 3.8 billion people watched the 2008 World Cup on T.V. “I believe [rugby] is spreading more and more every day. More Americans are starting to know about the sport and how it is played. ASU is putting on Rookie Rugby sessions at many local elementary schools to spread the word about rugby. Through this we spark interest in young kids and give them some insight on how to play the game,” Huesing said. -­Gabby Hirneise staffer


RIGHT OFF

THE BAT New  bat  regulations   change  the  game  of   high  school  baseball.

Baseball is in full swing, but this high school season is very different. NCAA baseball began using the Batted Ball Coefficient of Resolution (BBCOR) bats and now high school baseball has followed suit. The National Federation of State High School Associations approved BBCOR bats over the Ball Exit Speed Ratio (BESR) bats in the summer of 2011, completely changing the game of baseball in high school and college. These bats look the same but act differently. Before the change, the BESR bats were shown to have a ball exit speed of up to 15 mph faster than what is allowed after the bat is broken in. This intense speed increased the number of injuries, making our nation’s favorite pastime more dangerous. Many studies have been done on the BESR bats. According to the Arizona Republic, “After a player breaks in a composite bat, the barrel flattens and the graphite in the barrel stretches allowing the ball to travel much faster.” The BESR bats began turning the number seven, eight, and nine hitters into power-hitting superstars. “There were incidents all over the nation, especially at the college level where players would see baseballs hit in excess of 120 mph,” varsity pitcher Will Strauss said. The change to BBCOR bats will help make the game safer

and will bring back some traditional baseball values such as hitting singles and doubles instead of home runs. “BESR bats were most definitely causing more injuries than the BBCOR bats. The BBCOR bats are much safer due to the exit speed off the bat,” JV Head Coach Alex Adrian said. According to collegesplits.com, last year after the change to BBCOR bats there were 6.2 runs per game compared to 7.7 runs per game in college baseball. In the end, all of the changes made are for safety reasons. These bats are affecting Chaparral Baseball and are creating an advantage for pitchers. Instead of hitting homeruns, hitters now have to hit singles and doubles, forcing the fielders to play tougher defense. “The BBCOR bats are a more [pitcher-friendly], and it is mak-

ing it harder for us defense [players] to play behind the pitcher,” junior varsity outfielder Carter Statham said. Pitchers have been more successful because the batters cannot hit the ball as far. “Pitchers have a slight advantage, but pitching is still an art. Even with the new bats, it is still

Many players are confused because the bats they are accustomed to are no longer allowed, but most Chaparral baseball players have come to the same consensus. “As a hitter I prefer the BESR bats because they have more power than the BBCOR bats. Although I am happy with the switch to BBCOR because it better prepares players for professional baseball where wooden bats are used,” varsity second baseman and pitcher Adam Charnin-Aker said. Fans of the sport are a little disappointed. Many look forward to those powerful homeruns and fly balls. However, they see need for a change. “Safety is definitely the number one priority,” said Reese Kunz, a devoted baseball fan. -­Matt Wall staffer

"SAFETY IS DEFINITELY THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.” extremely easy for a game to get away from a pitcher,” Strauss said. Coaches have been helping pitchers and creating more ways to jam the hitter. “From a pitching standpoint, we have been teaching our pitchers to pitch more inside. It is much more difficult for a hitter to drive an inside pitch with the bats,” Coach Adrian said.
