Grand Rounds
Join us live!!
by: Mrs. Bryna Thomson, Middle School Science Teacher

Students, working in clinics of five medical specialties, teach their clinic members about each specialty after working in specialty groups and taking board exams over their specialty.

After clinic groups have learned each body system and taken their Physiology Exam, they get a “patient.” They must figure out what is wrong with their patient by researching and ordering tests. Once they have a confirmed diagnosis, they come up with a treatment plan and prognosis for their patient. This patient is then presented to a panel of medical professionals at Grand Rounds. Each clinic presents their patient to the panel and then answers the panelists’ questions about their presentation. 

Join us live tomorrow, April 16th for the Grand Rounds presentation.

Round one 8:00 am - 9:00 am.
Round two 10:50 am - 11:50 am.

Additionally, Sophia has very much enjoyed volunteering at Lakehill’s summer camps. Currently, she is Captain of the varsity cheer team and President of National Honor Society. Sophia’s favorite high school class was AP English Literature and Composition because she believes it taught her how to value multiple opinions during discussions and appreciate great works of literature. Sophia’s favorite memories from her time at Lakehill include performing with her friends in musical theater and participating in the Texas Private School Music Educators Association All-State Choir in her junior year. Being a member of the performing arts program at Lakehill has greatly impacted Sophia as she says it is where she met her closest friends and experienced what it was like to build something from the ground up.

During her time at Lakehill, Sophia has received many awards and recognitions such as the Headmaster’s High Honor List, Citizenship Award, Jane Browne Alber Memorial Scholarship, and Glenn and Marinette Kidder Memorial Scholarship. She was also selected to attend the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar in 2019. Sophia plans to major in speech pathology and has been accepted to Texas Christian University, Southern Methodist University, Baylor University and Texas A&M University. When asked what advice she would give to a young Warrior about high school, Sophia said, “Don’t be afraid to try new things and always ask as many questions as you can!”

Varsity Softball
by: Head Coach Devon Potter
This week the varsity softball team played back-to-back games against Greenville Christian on Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday, April 12th, the Warriors got their first win of the season in a 28 to 13 run-rule victory over Greenville Christian. The girls were firing on all cylinders, with junior Megan Gillman leading the offense with three hard line drives to centerfield. Juniors Brook'Lynn Williams and Madison Deason were the heart of our run production, being aggressive on the base paths and challenging Greenville every chance they got! Freshmen Sophia Demarco stole home in just her second appearance of the season. Fellow freshmen Aslan Campbell, Reese Armentrout, and Bella Bassman stayed calm at the plate and accounted for 10 of the walks.

On Tuesday, April 13th, the Warriors were back in action with a tough loss to Greenville Christian; the final score was 19 to 21. Brook'Lynn Williams, sophomore Emory Johnston, and freshman Bella Bassman pitched incredible games, while junior Madison Deason played lights out at shortstop! The Warriors recorded their first two home runs of the season as well, both inside the park! Senior Maya Ariss struck first with a shot down the right-field line, scoring a pair of runs with it. Brook'Lynn Williams followed suit with a hit of her own, this time a three-run home run to right-centerfield.

The varsity team is back for another home game on Thursday, April 15th, against Ovilla Christian! We're looking to keep our offense hot and our confidence up to finish off a tough week of softball.
Middle School Baseball

The Middle School baseball team had an exciting victory over Coram Deo 4-2. The Warriors showed excellent defense, making several difficult plays in the field to keep Coram Deo from scoring. Dig Curtis, Austin Sanders, and Max Smith all made big defensive contributions, as well as Drew Perry who caught the whole game. Austin Sanders and Dig Curtis both threw 3 great innings on the mound. Offensively, the Warriors were led by Austin Sanders (2-2, BB, 2R, RBI), Drew Perry (2-3, R, RBI), and Ryan Motes (3BB).

The Warriors will play again at home this Friday 4/16 against FBA at 4:30pm.

Warrior Tennis competes at the TAPPS State Tennis Tournamnet!
The varsity tennis team completed their season last week at the TAPPS State Tennis Tournament. Three student athletes, Hayden Yoss, Cade Armstrong, and Douglas McKenzie qualified for the tournament during district play.

Douglas McKenzie and Cade Armstrong advanced in boys doubles. With a first round bye, the duo found themselves matched up against a tough opponent right out of the gate. Cade and Douglas fought hard but came up just short of advancing to the next round. Congratulations to Cade and Douglas on a fantastic tennis season.

Hayden Yoss dominated her opponents at district to advance to the state tournament. She came out strong and won her first match advancing her to the second round. Matched up against a tough opponent, Hayden lost a tough tie-breaker at the end of set one. The second set was yet again evenly matched. Her opponent took off and Hayden slipped away to fall in her second match.

“Hayden left everything on the court and is a better player after competing at state,” said Head Coach Darvin McBrayer. “Lakehill was represented well and I am so proud of how these three student athletes competed.”

Congratulations to Hayden, Douglas, and Cade!

Middle School Softball Rallies for Win

by: Coach Kevin Jones and Coach Daniel Bracken

The Middle School softball team overcame a 6-2 deficit in the final inning to defeat Calvary Christian 7-6 and improve to 1-1 on the season.  After giving up a double in the first inning, pitcher Katie Crum settled in to record a strike out and an assist on a grounder for the first two outs of the inning. The next Calvary batter hit a grounder to Madeline Jones at short stop who fired it to Harper Khun at first base for the last out of the inning.

Catcher Addie Tuttle singled in the bottom of the first followed by a double by Harper that sent Addie to third. Emma Bassman followed that up with a walk which loaded the bases for Leonie Khan. Leonie singled up the middle which scored Addie to tie the game. The Calvary pitcher walked another run in and sent Lakehill into the second inning leading 2-1.

Lakehill had a rough start to the second inning allowing 2 hits and 2 walks, but the defense settled in capped by Harper fielding a grounder and beating the Calvary runner to 2nd base for the 3rd out, but falling behind on the scoreboard 4-2.

Calvary stretched their lead to 6-2 in the top of the third inning, but that was all they would get. Lakehill had a terrific defensive sequence as Madeline fielded a ground ball at second base and threw the runner out at first.  The throwback to the mound went past the pitcher, but the overthrow was fielded by Emma who fired the ball to catcher Allison Majors who tagged the runner attempting to score from third base out at home.

In their final at bat, Lakehill hitters showed great patience drawing two walks to put runners on first and second base. Madeline then lined a triple to right-center field that plated both base runners. Harper followed up with a single that scored Madeline to tighten the game at 6-5. Lakehill pushed across another run to tie the game 6-6 when Katie hit a walk-off single to score Emma and seal the 7-6 victory for Lakehill.

Katie and Elisa did a great job pitching and the Lakehill bats came alive at the right time. 

The Middle School team closes the season with a home and home series against McKinney Christian next week.  They play at McKinney Christian Tuesday, April 20th at 5 pm followed by a home game on Thursday, April 22nd at 5 pm.
