Dreads record a season-high score at Gibralter Carlson District, excited for future of the sport
By Jesse Linton
For the first time in Dexter High School history there is a competitive cheerleading team.
Competitive cheer is a sport that is often over- looked, and although some may say that it looks easy, participants disagree.
“The variation of cheer is a lot more intense and takes way more dedication, commitment, and tireless hours of practice,” sophomore Emily O’Keefe said.
The three main components of finals at Dexter High School

Test-taking is hard enough, especially with all of the pressure of final exams; nevertheless, being confident in an answer should be all it takes for you to fill in the bubble “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, or even that unsavory “E.” Sadly, this is not the reality students are met with during tests due to individual thought processes, especially on finals week.
Too many consecutive answers have been a problem with multiple choice tests since their creation. Every time you fill in the same letter, your brain begins to think that the chances of the next one being that letter diminish exponentially.

Experience. Focus. Chemistry.
These are all ingredients the Dexter Women’s Swim and Dive team had. Now the Dreads can call themselves Division 2 State Champions.
A hard-hitting fact: Increased awareness of concussions has caused controversy, forcing sports to adapt
By Conor Van Dusen & Caden Koenig
When thinking about the recent Michigan vs. Michigan State game, it’s likely the first thing that comes to mind is the spectacular and unexpected finish that left some devastated, others satisfied, and everyone surprised. However, the game winning “punt-six” wasn’t the only controversy surrounding the widely watched rivalry game.
The concussion controversy took center stage in the first half when Michigan senior linebacker Joe Bolden was ejected for falling head first onto Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook. Bolden was ejected from the game for targeting, a rule implemented in 2008 designed to discourage players from initiating helmet-to-helmet contact.
