Boys tennis team defeats Brandon Valley Lynx 7-2 Matches Monday, today moved indoors

By Megan Nolan oys tennis team members are managing to dodge some of the snow, playing indoor matches Monday and today in two cities. Monday, the WHS varsity faced Brandon Valley at the Huether Family Match Pointe indoor facility in Sioux Falls. WHS defeated Brandon Valley 7-2. Junior Tory Shafer won in a 10-3 pro set. Freshman Chris Harris and eighth grader Davis Shafer won 10-1. Junior Joe Simko won a close 11-10 set. Harris said he is excited to play indoors again. “We all played pretty well,” Harris said. “It was nice to play indoors again and hopefully today we can beat Yankton.” Today, the Warriors will travel to Yankton for a pair of matches vs. the Bucks and Vermillion beginning at noon at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Complex. WHS will face Vermillion at noon and Yankton at 3 p.m. today. No JV matches were played Monday or will be played today because of moving the games indoors. The Warriors have also had a hard time practicing this season, because of the weather. Coach Jillian Hurley said she is proud of how her team has kept at it, despite the conditions. “This week we are playing all indoors at different sites, and it will be an adjustment for each match,” Hurley said. “I know they will do a great job of playing their best, regardless.”

Warrior nominated for sports honor

Senior Jada Cunningham one of 12 nominated as Miss Basketball By Sidney Kennedy Just call her Miss Basketball. Or a nominee, at least. Senior Jada Cunningham, a four-year varsity team member, was nominated as Miss Basketball for South Dakota by Hansen Anderson Basketball recently. The winner out of 12 high school girls will be announced at a luncheon May 6 at the Ramkota Inn in Sioux Falls. “It’s an honor to be nominated for Miss Basketball alongside the many other Feature talented players,” Cunningham said. “Thank you to my family, coaches, and teammates for providing support and encouragement throughout the years.” The award is given to the high school girls and boys that are nominated the best basketball players in the state of South Dakota by a panel of basketball coaches. Cunningham has focused on basketball for most of her life, she said. “Basketball has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember,” she said. “I grew up in the gym always watching my older sister play and my mom coach various teams

from the middle school to the elementary school level. I started playing Y-ball in third grade when my gym teacher, Steve Kennedy, asked me to play on a team along with his daughter and our friends from school. I got to play and develop my love for basketball with these girls for many years and made a lot of fun memories along the way.” The sport also taught her life skills she will use, Cunningham said. “Basketball has helped me grow as a person, as well,” she said. “It’s helped me learn about how to fight through adversity and continue working hard, even when things don’t seem like they’re going to pay off. It has also taught me to be able to work and get along with different types of people, even when you don’t always agree on the same things.” Next year Cunningham will continue her academic and athletic career at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. “I am sad that my time at WHS is coming to an end,” she said. “But I also look forward to next year when I am excited to meet new people and pursue exercise science.”

Ready (MCT) With the world anxiously watching, Apollo 13, a U.S. lunar spacecraft that suffered a severe malfunction on its journey to the moon, safely returned to Earth today in 1970. On April 11, the third manned lunar landing mission was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying astronauts James A. Lovell, John L. Swigert and Fred W. Haise.

The mission was headed for a landing on the Fra Mauro highlands of the moon. However, two days into the mission, disaster struck 200,000 miles from Earth when oxygen tank No. 2 blew up in the spacecraft. As portrayed in the movie inspired by the event, Swigert reported to mission control on Earth, “Houston, we’ve had a problem here,” and it was discovered that the normal supply of oxygen, electricity, light and water had been disrupted. The landing mission was aborted, and the astronauts and controllers on Earth scrambled to come up with emergency procedures. The crippled spacecraft continued to the moon, circled it, and began a long, cold journey back to Earth. The astronauts and mission control were faced with enormous logistical problems in stabilizing the spacecraft and its air supply, as well as providing enough energy to the damaged fuel cells to allow successful reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. Navigation was another problem, and Apollo 13‘s course was repeatedly corrected with dramatic and untested maneuvers. On April 17, tragedy turned to triumph as the Apollo 13 astronauts touched down safely in the Pacific Ocean.
