Broadcaster Press 7 April 30, 2019 www.broadcasteronline.com APRIL 2019 VERMILLION.K12.SD.US BY ZADYA ABBOTT E veryone is looking to achieve their own personal form of greatness. However, because of how society sees certain people, not everyone is given the opportunity to succeed. The saying is Ôpull yourself up from your bootstraps,Õ but the problem becomes clear when the boots in question do not exist. The world runs on opportunity. In the United States of America one in every fifty-nine children is affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder Boys Tennis Serves Up A New Season BY TYLER MANN B oys tennis at Vermillion High School has started up once again for the spring 2019 season, and along with it, more months of dedicated practice and exciting matches. Their practice started on March 21, and have already competed numerous times against Brandon Valley, Lennox, Yankton, and others. I interviewed VHS junior Liam Mechling about his thoughts on his teammates, their performance so far, and the future. Liam has been on the tennis team since 7th grade, so he is not short on experi- (ADS), and in the month of April organizations, like Autism Speaks and Autism Society, spread a national message of inclusion. ASD refers to four Autism Diagnoses: Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified, Asperger Syndrome, and Autistic Disorder. Those conditions are often identified at a young age, and indicated by struggles with social skills, speech and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. The month of April is dedicated to the awareness of ADS, and to the inclusion of people who are affected. Everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed in their own way. ence. With his experience, he is able to deal with his teamÕs performance, which, according to him, has been below average thus far. However, he does think they will improve up to the state tournament. Liam is confident that he and the whole team can step up their level. He highlighted senior Ross Dahlhoff as someone he can learn from, as Ross always shows a positive attitude. The whole tennis team is hoping to finish the season strong and perform well at state, which starts on May 16. Everyone at Vermillion High School is supporting them as they continue grow as players and athletes. BY STEPHANIE MAGANA oetry Out Loud is the melting pot of young minds in South Dakota with the common goal of appreciating poetry, be it their own poetry or someone elseÕs. POL is a competition amongst young poets and performers. Held each year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the students meet to either perform poetry or present their original poems. Nine South Dakotans performed and three poets met to compete. This year, three of the nine ambitious students were from our local Vermillion High School. Anna Bottesini and Natalie Kaufman were awarded $100 for their original poems along with a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card and a free poetry book. Our third student, Annika Holdhusen preformed and also got a $25 Barnes & Noble plus a free poetry book. If you want to make some money and are into poetry, donÕt be afraid to submit your poems to Mrs. Begley. You can talk to or email Mrs. Begley at Mary.Begley@k12.sd.us. BASEBALL SEASON BEGINS BY MYA DEJONG T he Vermillion High School baseball season started on March 28, at Prentis Park against Tea. The season started with a win beating Tea 8-4. Their next game was also at home facing the Baltic Bulldogs. The Tanagers were defeated after a wellplayed game. This did not set the team back; they won their next game scoring 12 runs against HansonÕs 7, once again at home. The baseball teamÕs first away game was in Dakota Valley and they lost only by 1 run in the very end after a long battle. The Tanagers then picked up another solid win against Canton with 15 to 1. One of their recent games was April 15 at home against the number one team in the state, Bon Homme. They were winning the majority of the game until the last few innings when they lost 6 to 2. Our team this year consists of 3 seniors: Grey Peterson, Jacob Peterson, and Rylan Craig. After an interview with Rylan, he said ÒWe have a lot of guys coming back and a lot of young guys that can step up and play.Ó We look forward to watching the team continue to improve, hopefully making it to state and do well after their success of the last season. Rylan believes ÒThere isnÕt going be one team we play that we wonÕt be able to play with.Ó We hope to see our team at state this year and all of you out there watching them play along the way. Their next home games are this Thursday and Friday starting at 5:30 at the Prentis Park field. We hope to see you there cheering them on!

I was asked by my teacher Mr. Bru- nick if I would submit a watercolor picture. I hesitated at first because watercolor isn’t my first or favorite but I decided IÕd enter anyway. Once I decided what picture IÕd enter, I tried to forget I entered anything. This way I wasnÕt anxious waiting for the results. When my teacher finally gave me the results I was very excited. Having forgotten about it, I was extremely proud of placing 6th. I am thankful for the opportunity to show my work. Nat’s Reflection: IÕve competed in the State Art competition for three years now. I push myself every year to at least submit one piece in State Art, and this year I submitted two. Because itÕs my last year in high school, I hoped to finally win first place with one of my sculptural pieces. To my surprise and delight, one of my pieces won first place in threedimensional and my other piece won second place in crafts.
