Article By: Greta Sanders
Sep 29 2015

Lose: be deprived of or cease to have or retain.The simple definition of this word is the most accurate. When you lose a game, you are deprived of the win.

Losing someone means things will never be...

Article By: Caitlyn Corso
Sep 23 2015

With homecoming week done and gone for the year, I have come to the realization that there is a serious lack of school spirit throughout the SGHS hallways.

The pep club votes and decides on spirit days for the week of homecoming, or tournaments, but they are rarely ever acted...
