Wrestling will be going to their first tournament December 7th, and the whole team seems ready to get things going. Landen Girty, a senior, says that the team "is just getting started. We've been practicing for only two weeks." This will be Landen's 6th year participating in the SHS wrestling team and he sounds pumped for this season. "I feel like I'm going to do better this year as long as I keep practicing and not let a day pass. I should be able to qualify for state this year." Lary Oosahwe III, a freshman, like the Panic! At The Disco song, also has high hopes. "We will have a good year. Good Wrestling! They don't call me Yon for nothing." As you can see the wrestling team seems excited. Make sure to go and support them at their first duel in Okmulgee December 7th.

On the 2nd and 3rd of this week, the National Honor Society also helped shop for families in need with the Cherokee Nation Indian Child Welfare Angel Tree program. The students spent both days picking out presents for their angels. Liam McAlpin, senior and president of NHS, says that he really enjoyed it. "This is my favorite part about being in NHS. Yes there is the prestige and the fact that it looks good on scholarships. But when you get down to it, for me, the best part is going out into the community and creating positive change."
