Due to the pandemic, basketball was on hold for about a year at Lawrence Woodmere Academy. In February, basketball returned to LWA and our team had their first game since their hiatus!
As Lawrence Woodmere Academy is known to be “at home with the world,” we are committed to educating ourselves and others about the importance of praising differences!
“Everything is an opportunity if you look at it with the right lens. Then, you dig in…Just have a simple strategy and ‘chop’ and work every day…and soon, you’ll get through that forest…You’re going to feel like it was a life worth lived and an effort worth doing, and that’s what it’s all about.”
Follow our committee’s journey through the Prism Press as we explore the endeavors of our high school years. We will venture out into the unknown, all the while observing the precepts of journalism and inspiring our inner journalists to take flight! Happy reading!
The COVID 19 pandemic has hit the U.S and the world hard. It seems that it is all any of us are talking about, and for good reason. It has tragically taken the lives of so many and has affected their families, doctors and nurses, and all other essential workers. This article is in no way brushing over these facts. The Prism staff also acknowledges that we are all lucky to have a safe place to be able to quarantine and to be able to go to school. With all that being said, the Class of 2020 has been also facing challenges. With their senior year cut short, prom, graduation in question, and potentially their first semester of freshman year of college in jeopardy, I began to wonder what they are doing to entertain themselves and to cope with this frustration and boredom.
The Lawrence Woodmere Academy boys varsity, girls varsity, and boys junior varsity basketball teams seasons’ are now underway. The boys varsity are now 11-1 only losing to Friends Seminary recently, 67-56. Before this they began their season 11-0 beating teams such Ranney (NJ) and St. Dominic (NY). Junior Jasigha Barnes says, “Basketball is going great. It feels good reuniting with my teammates and winning again.” The boys varsity team hopes to continue their season ending just as greatly as they started. They continue their season with an away game against Dalton on January 16, 2020.
