  • College football adjusts playoff

    After years of criticism, the controversial NCAA Bowl Championship Subdivision Championship game has been replaced by the College Football Playoff, which gives the four top teams a chance to compete for the title. On Jan. 1, top-ranked Alabama will take on fourth-seed Ohio State, and second-seed Oregon will play third-seed Florida State; the winners will face off for the national championship. While the four-team playoff is better than the previous bowl system, the NCAA needs to continue the expansion of the playoff to a greater number of teams. Read more... Comments (0)  |  Hits: 6

  • Athlete in the crowd: Hannah Liddy

    Hi’s Eye chose to highlight an accomplished Blue Devil athlete this week. Sophomore Hannah Liddy participates in WHS soccer, basketball and lacrosse. Here is what she has to say:

     

     

    1. What is your favorite sport to watch?

     

    “Probably basketball. It is just a fast moving game and always exciting.”

     

    2. What is your hidden talent?

     

    “A hidden thing I like to do is play the guitar. I wouldn't say I am so talented at it, but it is fun and relaxing. It is a nice way to get a break for everything.”

     

    3. If you could meet any professional athlete who would it be and why?

     

    “If I could meet one professional athlete it would be Melissa Stockwell. She is a war veteran with the U.S. Army, Purple Heart recipient, paralympian, paratriathlete and an above the knee amputee. After becoming an amazing athlete in the paralympics, she is a prime example that as long as you have the drive, you can become anything you want and more.”

     

    4. Do you have any weird pre-game routines? If so, what?

     

    “I am not one for many superstitions or any strange pregame rituals but in any sport before starting a game, in my warm-up I always end on a make. Whether it is a goal in soccer and lacrosse or a quick layup before the game starts in basketball, I always end warmups on a positive note. I try not to have too many superstitions because they can effect my game mentally.”

     

    5. What is one sport you've always wanted to try?

     

    “There are many sports I want to try, but one that always seems cool is water polo. It just seems so challenging but fun at the same time.”
