MHanna:If you are on the team that we played at Walton, that was really our JV. If you were talking about a team from Dorman, it would've been a varsity team.

I especially enjoy when students from Male refer to different parts of the school as organs. Hey, I'm immature.

No, probably not. I am planning on going to Harvard Summer School and it conflicts with camp. If, however, I am not able to attend Summer School then I will definitely be at Maryville with the rest of Dunbar's usually massive contingent. Looking forward to seeing you again, Ted.

Is anyone else interested in Kentucky's outlook next year? How about an all-star team rather than state champions at Panasonic? Just a thought.

Anyway, Manual, Us, Danville, Russell and Pikeville should be strong again. Aside from that, someone new always seems to make some noise.

Oh yeah,
memorize your sequence formulas. They're very useful for, say, adding all the odds less than 15. But I would recommend memorizing the sum of all evens and odds under every number less than 25.
I don't know, maybe that's overkill, but I use it a lot and I'm a Humanities major.
