The Lower School Lacrosse A team started off the season hot, with victories over ECS, St. Georges, Briarcrest, and Houston. On Saturday April 2nd, The A team played our Nashville Rival, MBA. The Big Red started off hot ending the first quarter leading 5-1.
The Owls slowly started to chop at the lead getting the score 7-4 at halftime. MBA once again made a run dominating the Face-off X and gaining possession for the majority of the game. In the fourth quarter, the Owls made a run with Gus Carter winning face-offs, Edwin Shy’s clearing, and Stratton Barousse, Collins Robinson, and Connor Hamilton’s dodging and riding.
Everything the Owls gave the Big Red had an answer and the Owls lost 14-10. Luckily, this is the first of the pair of the games the Owls have against MBA. Hopefully the Owls can even out the series when they play them in Nashville on April 16.
The Owls hope to comeback from this loss with league play against Brothers on Tuesday, April 5 (*note, MUS won). The Lower School A team is currently 5-1 and is hoping to win another City Championship this season.
MUS math department faculty member Mr. Darin "Clicker" Clifft isn't distributing cigarettes here. No, those are hand-held clickers used to expedite data gathering and show student answers from 100 boys who, in this case, are voting in search of a majority for our Honor Council elections.
Eighth graders Michael Gayoso and Ben Spiegelman were elected to serve on next year's Honor Council as Freshman reps. Seventh graders Edwin Shy and Drew Burnett were elected to serve for next year's eighth grade.
This morning, the boys separated into their grade levels for the purpose of nominating a final four slate of candidates to be voted on Monday for Honor Council representatives in the 2016-17 school year. Two representatives must serve at each grade level, next year's eighth grade and ninth grade.
The candidates are:
Drew Burnett, Hart Gowen, Akbar Latif, and Edwin Shy.
Michael Gayoso, Caleb London, Rob McFadden, and Ben Spiegelman.
Monday during regular assembly, these eight students each will deliver a two-minute speech before their assembled peers. Following each grade level's speaker slate, the students will initiate a smartphone vote from their seats which will allow us immediate, confidential results in real time. Students will bring and share their phones across the aisle as not all of our students have the privilege to access a $500 miracle of modern technology. We only need 105 phones in the room.
We are prepared to conduct multiple votes in order to achieve our needed majority victors.
All of this will be executed within 20 minutes.
Parents are invited to hear how the day went when they retrieve their sons at the end of the school day. Their cooperation is appreciated.
