All suited up in their bunker gear, McKayla McBride ’13 and Hannah Patton ’13 hose down a car fire as a part of the new fire science class Oct. 4 at Littleton’s Fire Academy. An important part of the class is learning how to respond in an emergency as a certified firefighter would. “I was glad I got the opportunity to put out the fire. I was nervous at first, being so close, but once I started spraying I felt better. It was really hot and smoky, I could barely see anything in front of me,” McBride said.
Exploiting a gap in the defense, Eric Williams ’13 sidesteps a defender to gain extra yardage against Castle View at Douglas County Stadium Sept. 21. Although he rushed for 118 yards and scored a touchdown, it was not enough to pull the Jags to victory, losing 21-42. “I may not be in the best physical shape of my life right now after coming back from an off-season injury, but it has given me a new drive going into the season,” Williams said. “Our number one team goal is to win the first playoff game for Rock Canyon this year.”
Becoming one with nature, Devin Hartwig ‘15 scrunches her face as she gets kissed by Cody the wolf. After studying animal behavior, the zoology class, taught by Jessica Muniz, took a field trip to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center Sept. 26 to experience what they learned in a hands-on setting. “It was interesting to hear about how the wolves were endangered and to be able to interact with them was unbelievable,” Hartwig said.
