News you might have missed

Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, suffered tragedy recently after a gunman entered the school and killed 17 people. Everyone grieves in a different way, and the school hockey team honored their fallen friends by winning the state championship.

The tournament was only two weeks after the school tragedy. Players for Marjorie Stoneman Douglas had a rough start, losing their first three games in a row. They went into the semi-finals as the last seed, but pulled off an upset and made it into the finals. Then they came on strong and won the final game 7 to 4 to take the state title. Senior Matthew Horowitz said they wanted to win for everyone back home, and they dedicated their title to the 17 classmates and teachers they lost so tragically.
