Tristan Lorincz | Freshman | Water Polo

Tristan Lorincz is an up-and-coming water polo athlete, and coaches have noted his savviness for his age. Lorincz racked up five goals at the Dexter JV Tournament, where the team ended up winning the tournament in a dominant fashion, going undefeated through their four games. Lorincz also had a four-goal game against Huron. He usually plays the wing position and scores a majority of his goals from this area.  “I’m proud of myself for being able to put up those numbers, but I’m really just trying to get better and play a varsity game this year,” he said, noting the varsity team is currently on a 22-game winning streak.

Sunday Night Senior Survivor

Senior Survivor: 4-22-18

BY MITCHELL STERLITZ AND KELLEN PORTER

Senior Survivor started Sunday night as all of the participants moved into for the whole week. Teams entered promptly into the school at 7 pm, and the first event of the night was poster making that would be hung up in the auditorium later that week. The teams then migrated outside for a series of tasks that would test their team chemistry and perseverance. The first challenge of the evening involved throwing cheese puffs on the head of their partner. The Orange Team successfully threw the most cheese puffs on each others heads to take the first challenge. The second and final challenge of the night involved the teams escaping a knot and then each member had to drink either a mixed up happy meal or a vegetable surprise. The Green Team was able to down the concoction the fastest to take the second challenge. To end the night the group participated in a Kahoot and the orange team won yet again. After this action-packed day the boys and girls went to their respective dorms, preparing for the next day of challenges.

Baseball sits at .500 despite playing in frigid temps

The Dexter Men’s baseball team is 2-2 over its first four games, braving the rough weather and surviving four or five cancellations.

In the season opener on April 5, Dexter split a doubleheader at Canton. The Dreads lost the first game 9-1 before winning the second game 8-2.

“In the first game, we just couldn’t hit or field at all,” junior infielder David Kreske said. “In the second game, we jumped on them early and got two runs quick and just continued from there.”

On Tuesday, Dexter split a doubleheader against Bedford. The Dreads took the opening game 2-0 but lost the second game 8-6.

“[Ryan Schoch] threw a lot of strikes and kept the ball down in the zone in the first game,” Kreske said. “They didn’t get many hits. In the second game, we just didn’t do well pitching-wise. They got a bunch of dinkers and we had a bunch of errors. We gave it to them.”

Up Next: The Dreads have a doubleheader against Milford tonight beginning at 4 p.m.

Women’s Lacrosse Whips Tecumseh

The Dexter Women’s Lacrosse team remained undefeated by beating beat Tecumseh 15-4 on Wednesday. The deciding factor of the game was speed, and the Dreads controlled the pace of the game all 60 minutes.

They were in Tecumseh’s defensive end practically the entire game, meaning they were on offense for a majority of the game and had a lot of scoring opportunities.

Up Next: Dexter (2-0) plays the Huron River Rats at 7 p.m. Friday at Al Ritt Field.

Dreadbots

Balance is key for the Dexter Robotics Club

Not many students in Dexter High School know much about the robotics club, nor do they realize the effort the team puts into building robots for competitions. Most schools have their own team, with roughly 3000 teams nationally. Michigan is extremely competitive in the field of robotics, mainly due to the sheer amount of teams in the state: 422. That’s one-sixth of all the national teams in a single state. To stay competitive in this league, it’s a serious grind. Continue reading “Dreadbots”

Three-peat

What a surprise? Dreadnaughts are good in the water (again)

What’s better than going back-to-back in the state championships? 

Going back-to-back-to-back.

Just ask the Men’s Swim and Dive team.
