Varsity Baseball Advances to Regionals

 

The Eagles defeated Central Texas Christian on May 2nd, in Franklin, Texas. Ty Hermes toed the rubber for the Eagles and was outstanding in 6.1 innings of action. Hermes gave up two runs while striking out eight and was credited with the win. Will Hauser relieved Hermes and Jacob Filip closed out the game. Offensively Hauser came up with the big hit. With the bases loaded in the second inning, Will lined a hit over the third baseman and three runners scored. Vonte Green, Jake Walston and Thomas Voorheis also contributed on offense while the infield defense of Hauser, Filip, Voorheis, and Green was outstanding. Ben Nicholson was a rock behind the plate, and the outfield trio of David Barbato, Jake Walston and Nick Brueckner were also solid. Reid Hauser pinch ran and scored a couple of runs, and the Zoo Crew of Jacques Currier, Jared Starnes, Colin Fussell, Seth Mallory and Jake Howorth also contributed to the win. The Eagles next opponent is defending division champion, New Braunfels Christian. That game will be played on Saturday night, May 11, at 7:30pm at the Shiner Starplex in Shiner, TX.  Make plans to take a road trip on Saturday and come out and support the Eagles.

Important Field Day Instructions for K-5th

 

Field Day is coming soon on May 17th!  Students may wear athletic shorts to school for Field Day, but they must meet the RCS "fit" guidelines.  This means that shorts cannot be too short, too tight, or too revealing.  The rule of thumb for length is that when a student places her hands in front of her, her fingertips should be touching fabric and not her skin. Please do not wear biker shorts or spandex So grab your tennis shoes and your rad tye-dye shirts you made in art and get ready for a day of team spirit and lots of fun!

Spanish VI to Doneraki

 

Students in Spanish IV Honors visited the Doneraki on May 1, an authentic Mexican restaurant downtown.  Not only did the students speak Spanish the entire meal with each other and with the staff, but more importantly, La Catrina, the series of novels they have been reading for the past two years, are based on the works of the famous painter, Diego Rivera, and the Mexican legend of "La Catrina." The Doneraki has Rivera's exact mural re-created from Mexico City,  Sueño de una Tarde Dominical en la Alameda Central, that spans one of their entire walls, with "La Catrina" at the center. They also have a room dedicated to the artist, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera's wife.  Students also recently researched and presented historical presentations in Spanish to their peers over Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, "La Catrina, " Diego's mural, and the Mexican War for Independence.  The field trip was a great time for all and has become a highlight of this AP preparatory course.
