Tiger Woods left a gaping hole in our hearts

Augusta National Golf Course has been home to many sweet memories for Tiger Woods. From the surprising triumph in 2019 and the back-to-back wins in ’01 and ’02, this year’s Masters left us grasping for something. That thing was Eldrick Tont Woods.

Tiger Woods, unfortunately, could not participate in the Masters due to his recent injury. On February 23, Tiger Woods crashed his vehicle in Southern California. The incident left Tiger with some serious injuries to his right leg which required him to undergo multiple surgeries. This injury could easily jeopardize his future in the PGA and his future in general.

Tiger has been dominating the stage at the Masters since 1997 when he won it by 12 strokes at the age of 18. That tournament is what launched the most followed golf career. Tiger Woods has managed to change the course of golf from just being a “rich guy” sport to a national phenomenon. The “Tiger Woods effect” is real and still continues to grow.

Many predicted after the 1997 Masters, when 18-year-old Tiger Woods dominated, that he would steamroll Jack Nicklaus’s 18 majors. But we need to remember that there is opposition in everything, so many believed Tiger would never reach that milestone. At the age of 43, Tiger Woods conquered the world at Augusta National and won his fifth Masters tournament. Woods has opened the door again for the discussion for the greatest golfer of all time.

When we watched Tom Brady triumph over Kansas City in the Super Bowl, we realized how much we love an old dog who uses new tricks. Athletes such as Woods and Brady, in terms of sports, are “old dogs” who are managing to beat the “new dogs”. At 45 years old now, Tiger Woods is still managing to compete on high levels. Even though he has not competed this year, some of his performances last year shocked the world.

The Masters Tournament at Augusta National in Georgia did not disappoint this year. Hideki Matsuyama managed to win the tournament, but Tiger Woods stole the show. Even without being there physically, Tiger’s presence was felt. We are all anxiously waiting for that next performance and possibly the next win for Mr. Woods.

Everything you need to know about boy’s baseball so far!

Baseball season has been underway for the past few weeks and things are looking up for the team, despite a few set backs.

First off, we have boy’s baseball. Their first five games they have gone 3-2. They started off the season hot with a 3-game win streak, but had back-to-back losses to Riverton in their last two games.

The first game was a close win over Bountiful with a final score of 1-0. The first two innings were scoreless, until the third inning when Jake Maw got a hit to score the one and only run. Davis pitched a shutout to put their record to 1-0.

The second game was a high scoring win for the Darts against Woods Cross. The final score was 8-3. The first inning started off with a bang with both sides scoring two runs. Davis got the win with a 4-run inning in the 5th.

The third game was a blowout against the Copper Hills Grizzlies, the final score being 7-0. Mike Wendt had 3 hits with 2 RBI’s on only 4 plate appearances. Davis pitched a shutout to bring our record to 3-0.

In our fourth game of the season, the 3-game win streak came to an end with a heartbreaking loss to Riverton. The final score was 10-1. Riverton came out swinging and Davis could not keep up with Riverton’s offense.

In our latest game, we played Riverton again and, while it was closer than before, but we still ended up with the loss. The final score was 5-2. We held Riverton to less runs, but we just couldn’t get the bats going against Riverton’s pitching.

The boy’s baseball season started off hot with a 3-game win streak, but lost two in a row in back-to-back games against Riverton. If we play like we did at the first of the season, we have nothing but good things to look forward to this season.

Why Brother Bear is the Best Movie Ever

The Disney animated film “Brother Bear” is largely underappreciated. This movie is so amazing because it teaches good morals, a heartwarming story, and a lot about forgiveness.

Brother Bear is a story about a man named Kenai, who gets turned into a bear by the spirits. He was turned into a bear because he killed a bear, and the spirits are trying to teach him a lesson. While Kenai is trying to figure out how to change back into a human, he meets a little cub named Koda. They travel together and form a brotherly bond. In the end, Kenai realizes his mistakes and starts making amends.

First of all, Brother Bear shows amazing sibling relationships rather than unrealistic sibling relationships. It shows the teasing and the fighting that comes with having siblings, but it also shows the love between siblings in a way most other movies do not visualize as well. Koda and Kenai also show the relationship of brothers in a realistic way.

This movie shows perspective in a really cool way as well. The humans think of the bears as monsters who try to steal their fish and kill, but the bears think the humans are the monsters. At one point Koda is looking at a picture of humans with spears, and he mentions how scary they are. This forces Kenai to look at everything with a different perspective than he had.

Another amazing thing about Brother Bear is that when Kenai realizes who he killed, he immediately feels bad about it and realizes that what he did was wrong. It shows realization and consequences for his actions. My favorite thing about this movie is that as soon as Kenai realizes what he did, he comes clean about it. In a usual movie this would be kept a secret and then there would be a big blow up about it later. But in this movie, Kenai doesn’t keep a secret and he is open and honest with Koda about his mistake.

The soundtrack for Brother Bear is another big plus of the movie. The music is by Phil Collins, who is a master at this kind of thing. I listen to the soundtrack at least twice a week because it is so good.

This movie also shows forgiveness in a cool way. Koda could have hated Kenai for the rest of his life, but instead he forgives him through the power of love. Forgiveness is hard to do, but Brother Bear shows it beautifully.

The moral of the movie is that love is not weak. It shows even though people think love isn’t considered “manly,” in the end that is what makes someone a person or a “man.” It shows that love makes you strong through the relationships that you make.

In conclusion, Brother Bear is a great movie and one to be watched and appreciated a lot more.

The chaos behind soccer’s new super league

On Sunday April 14th, 12 European soccer clubs announced a new “super league” that would act independent of the UEFA. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea, Inter, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham are the clubs announced as founding members. Just after the announcement was made, the soccer community erupted.

Across the world, there are over 4 billion fans that share the love for the sport. After the announcement was made on Sunday it seemed as if the entire community did not approve. Many have said that the clubs involved forgot about the fans. Sport reporting companies such as ESPN wrote articles with headlines titled “Super league is only wanted by a cabal of Europe’s Elite club owners: Fans have been forgotten.”. This seems to be the overall opinion toward the super league announcement.

Put simply, the super league would be the equivalent to the top four teams from each NBA conference breaking off and creating a league in which only they got to play. As you can see, fans would be torn apart and it seems that is what is happening here.

The UEFA and FIFA have made threats, saying that if these clubs go ahead with the league, they could be removed from there current leagues and their players banned from international games. The opinions of most of the individual players on this announcement are unknown, so fans are waiting anxiously to hear their perspectives so that they can gain a full understanding of the issues at hand.

Jamming Davis

Music is a big deal in a lot of people’s lives. Some people use music as a stress reliever. Some people use music to hype themselves up, and some people just like to listen. At Davis, there are lots of different ways people listen to music.

Luke Weston listens to music when he wants to vibe and Jam out. “I love listening to folk and indie alternative music because it makes me feel so good.”

This is a good way to really relax and just focus on the music. Different types of music can give you different vibes. For example, when you listen to folk music you get more chill vibes and when you listen to rock music you get more hype vibes.

Spencer Swain listens to music when he wants to sing along to it. “I love to sing as loud as I can and express myself through my music.”

Music can be a great a great way to express your emotions and have fun. “You can either listen to music based off of your emotions or you can listen to music based on the emotions you would like to feel.” Says Gabe Franklin.

“I listen to rap when I want to tune Gabe out,” Says Grace Clark.

Sometimes music is used to tune others out. It is a good way to distract yourself from the chaos of life and just have a good time listening to music. It can be a good way to cool down and re-center yourself. Music can also help you connect with people. Taig Olsen says, “I love to listen to music at parties so I can set a fun mood.”

Music is so diverse and can be used in so many different ways. From listening in the car to listening with friends, music shapes the way kids at Davis High live their lives.

Lacrosse team going for the state

The girls lacrosse is working hard to be able to make state and win it.

So far, there has been three games for the lacrosse team. Each game resulted in victory for the Davis High girl’s lacrosse team.

“Our biggest goal this season is to make state” says Samantha Oswald, a player on the lacrosse team.

If the season continues on the way that it has so far, then there will be no problem for the team to accomplish this goal.

“There are a lot of unexperienced people on the team, and that can be an obstacle at times” says Samantha on the obstacles in their path to state.

This is a big challenge that the lacrosse team will have to face, but luckily, the team has a good plan for teaching.

“We overcome that obstacle by learning from those who are more experienced and by practicing” says Samantha on the way that they will push through and reach their goal.

Working with inexperienced people can be frustrating at times, but the lacrosse team handles it well with a friendly and fun atmosphere.

“I chose to do lacrosse because it is a great opportunity to try something new and be involved” says Samantha on why she joined the lacrosse team.

Lacrosse is a fun environment for anyone who wants to get involved in a sport. It is very welcoming and rewarding.

“The most exciting thing about the lacrosse season has been getting to know all the wonderful people on the team!” says Samantha.

“Lacrosse is so much fun! And worth every bit of time that is put into it” says Samantha.

The Davis High lacrosse team is going to go for the gold and crush this season!

Good luck this season, lacrosse, you have our support. We believe in you and know that you can win state!

Mike Trout is capturing Dart hearts

Mike Trout has arguably been the best player in the MLB for the last seven years. He is flashy, professional, and the description of a perfect player. He is the player people show up to the ballpark to watch. Trout is also the player that manages to steal your affection. 

When people talk about their favorite player, Mike Trout is a name that you will hear most commonly. My love for baseball recently compelled me to listen in on a conversation about two people’s favorite players in baseball. To my astonishment, both students said Mike Trout was their absolute favorite. 

I will say I was puzzled by the student’s statements of Trout being their favorite player because I knew them not to be Angels fans. Usually, people will say their favorite player is someone on a team they root for. Therefore, I was a little startled to hear Trout’s name pop up in their conversation. I decided to investigate further on this matter. 

Jessie Higley and Kaylee Bowles are surprisingly some of the biggest baseball fans you will meet. I knew that in some of their sports discussions they would mention baseball. I decided to ask Jessie and Kaylee who their favorite players were, keeping in mind that Kaylee does not care too much for the MLB and Jessie is a Chicago Cubs fan. They both emphatically stated that Mike Trout was their favorite player. 

“I may be a Chicago Cubs fan, but Mike Trout is for sure my favorite player. How could you not like Mike Trout? He’s such a classy and amazing player”

Stated Jessie Higley.

“I have yet to meet someone who does not like Mike Trout in the slightest.” 

Mike Trout has managed to be my favorite player for the last 7 years. Ever since I became an Angels fan, Mike Trout has been my favorite player and, now, I am starting to see Mike become others’ favorites. You do not even have to like the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for the ‘Millville Meteor’ to be your favorite player. The next time you watch an Angels game, Mike Trout may become your favorite player.

Player Spotlight: Talon Meyer

Talon Meyer is a fun person to be around, and has an excellent sense of humor. Everyone around him loves him, and no one can deny his talent in soccer.

As a freshman, Talon played for Davis High’s Varsity soccer team, and played the full game. Covid-19 shut down the soccer season, but Talon still made a name for himself in the Davis High soccer world.

Now a sophomore, Talon still plays on the Varsity team. He is grateful for the chance to play soccer this season, even with the covid precautions.

Talon got his start playing soccer when his mom signed him up for rec soccer at a young age. Talon loved the game, and has been playing ever since.

Talon is always getting new soccer gear for Christmas and his birthday, because soccer is what he enjoys. Soccer is his passion.

“My cousin and I hang out all the time and we both play soccer, so we always play together which gives me a lot of my practice.”

Talon is found in the field behind his house all the time, kicking around a soccer ball and taking shots.

“I play on USA, for a team which was ranked 12th in the nation by Gotsoccer.com when I joined” says Talon about his current soccer team.

This is a huge sacrifice for him, because USA is an hour away. Every practice takes about four hours with drive time plus the time spent playing soccer.

This sacrifice shows Talon’s dedication to his sport and his determination in succeeding.

“College soccer would be fun, but I don’t have my heart set on one place.” says Talon on his college plans.

Talon has put hard work, time, and a lot of sweat into his dream, and we will see how it pays off in his bright future ahead.
