Freshman Heidi Nielson followed her District championship by grabbing first place at the Cross Country Regional Meet in Huntsville, then went on to finish 4th in State at the UIL CC Championships at Settlers Park in Round Rock Nov. 4.

Neilson’s time of 18:44.90 in the girls 5,000 meter run at Regionals paced the Cougars to a 3rd place team finish and helped punch their ticket to State. The Lady Cougars bested all other Region 3 teams at the State Meet and finished in 6th place at Round Rock. Nielson set a PR with her time at State cutting nearly 100 seconds off her Regional Meet clocking. Freshmen teammate Sophie Atkinson finished 27th overall at State while senior Megan Hopper finished 29th to pace the Lady Cougars.

About the Photographer
Brynne Herzfeld, Co-Editor-In-Chief

Brynne has almost run out of clever biography ideas. She has recycled a couple lines from her previous biographies.

When she’s not slaving away over her history notes or staring at a blank screen for hours while trying to start her article, she’s working on her fiction stories, sketching, creating digital art, keeping up with her favorite YouTubers, and adamantly continuing to use the Oxford comma outside of journalistic writing. Brynne volunteers at a wildlife center, and if you want to know what it feels like to have a baby squirrel skitter up your arm and onto your neck , just ask. She has also had a possum haul itself onto her head. She is apparently a jungle gym for critters. Brynne’s the resident cartoonist, representing her grievances or humorous encounters through the characters of Kate and Zeke in her award-winning strip, “Wait, What?”.
She’s a Co-Editor-In-Chief now, which is a fun thing to be. (hopefully) After joining staff halfway through her freshman year, she’s seen just about everything that room 1221 can gently toss at you and is eagerly looking forward to seeing what it can throw. 

Brynne sometimes explodes. It’s perfectly normal.
