Written by : Rubani Singh

The senior womens volleyball team has been doing fantastic this season in. They won the consolation prize at their first tournament. Last tuesday they had their first league game at McNally and they killed or as they like to call it, they “glazed it!” Today, 8th october 2013 they played their second league at McNally High School and had some very cheerful supporters which according to the team players were very much appreciated. Our team almost win but lost by a couple points today. They are not giving up and are going to fight through and bring more victories back to McNally. Senior Women Volleyball are “nothing but the best!”. Roar!

Do you want to see their pictures? Check it out soon.


New Year. New Start. – Sophie

This is an article written by Sophie Scott a Sophomore student. She is basically talking about her first month in McNally. Enjoy!


Every school year feels like a new start for me. Another chance to try to be organized, another chance to get better grades, to try to eat healthy, improve your style from last year and maybe get a decent photo ID card. Every year that I get this new chance, it seems like all of my motivation to be an awesome student just dies away in about 2 weeks.
This year has been the exception to that. I have seen this in not only myself, but in others around me too.

I have Math first period every single morning. People who know me, know that Math is my worst possible subject. I have never been good at math. Walking into my first class, I had pretty low expectations for myself but Mr.Clark said exactly what I needed to hear, “It doesn’t matter how bad you have done in math before, how much you think you suck. Leave that all at the door because this is a new beginning.” This has set the tone for the rest of the school year for me. Walking into school with that kind of attitude has been amazing.

The bad grades you got last year that are still discouraging you, leave it at the door because it is a new beginning.
The friends who you got into fights with last year, leave it at the door because it is a new beginning.
The old habits of not studying or showing up late, leave it at the door because it is a new beginning.
The passive action of littering, put the garbage in the garbage because it a new beginning.

I could go on and on but you get my point. I once heard somebody say “People who end up being great, are great because they make ordinary moments, extraordinary opportunities.” This is so true. All of us have been in school for about 10-12 years. We are used to school, we know what to expect, we know what happens, it is nothing new and it is an ordinary part of every day life. For me, instead of just treating school like school but really seeing it as an opportunity that is going to make my future has changed this year for me.

McNally is an amazing school that is full of opportunities, but if school is something to you that is just, well, school. Then you won’t get to be apart of all of those amazing chances. I encourage you to create your new beginning this year. Join a club, make new friends, stay on top of your game. Get a new perspective on our school and see it as an awesome place. I promise you that it will be so much easier to wake up for school, if you have something to look forward to.  Start off this year, knowing that is a new beginning and do things to keep yourself motivated! Just as Amelia Earhart says, “The most effective way to do it; is to do it.” Be effective in having a great school, by making it a great school year for yourself!

McNally’s Youth Alpha Club

Leader : Sophie Scott
Youth Alpha is a 12 week video series that wants high school students to begin discussion about some of life’s biggest questions. Alpha is a fun but relaxing environment where student’s can find answers to the Christian faith. Topic’s range from questions like, Life: Is This It? as well as Jesus: Who is He?
Let’s say you live to be 70 years old. On an average, this is how you will live your life;
20 years and 3 months asleep. 10 years and 5 months watching TV. 7 years and 6 months eating and drinking. 5 years and 9 months in some sort of transportation. 18 months waiting in lines. 6 months at red lights.
It is alarming to think that some people will spend more time at red lights, then having discussion about some of life’s biggest issues. You approximately have 570,000 hours left to live and we invite you spend less then 24 hours with us doing Youth Alpha.
McNally Youth Alpha is every Wednesday at lunch time, in room 123. Join us for a video, discussion and free food.
