TE Morning News - 10/31/17 
  • Good morning everyone, I am here this morning to talk to you about Movember. For those of you who do not know, during the month of November teachers here at TE will grow out their moustaches in an effort to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research. This is a contest we have been holding for 5 years now. To donate to this great cause, we will be selling ballots during your lunch waves. Each ballot is 50 cents or you can get 3 for a dollar. To vote for your favorite moustache, you simply place your ballot in that staff member's collection box. The staff members with the fewest votes each week will be eliminated and the remaining staff will continue on. Who is going to grow the best moustache this year, who is going to take home the coveted moustache belt????? That is up to you, so get out the vote, vote early and vote often and help your favorites to win while raising money for a great cause.

  • On Friday afternoon, the lady Cougars drove to Enfield to finish up their season against JFK. The Cougars started strong as Taryn Suffish, Sam Wunsch, and Haydin Courtois helped to possess the ball in midfield. Attempts on goal in the first half came from Sam Wunsch, Marybeth Grasso, and Lexie Wheeler. Once again, the Cougar's back four had an amazing day including Candace Walsh, Ella Suppicich, Megan Martin, and Ellinor Edstrom. Despite the efforts, the score remained 0-0 at half. In the second half, the tides began to turn, as the determined midfielder Rhianna O'Meara provided countless precision passes as she picked apart the Enfield defenders. Ultimately, the Cougar offense was too strong as Marybeth found the foot of Sarah Gordon putting TE up 1-0. With a continuous press, Sarah Gordon was on the board again with an assist to Lexi Wheeler putting the Cougars in sight of victory. JFK answered back closing the gap within one goal. However, the play of the game came from Candace Walsh scoring the third and final goal with less than 10 seconds left in the match. Amazingly, the assist came from the punt of Maria Galley. The amazing goal was the perfect cap to an incredible season. The lady Cougars finished with an outstanding record of 8-2-2 on the season. Thanks to all the students and parents who came out to the game and supported the team.
