With high expectations for many teams, the Dreadnaughts
have sights set on various titles
By Jacoby Haley & Jillian Chesney
The 2017-18 winter sports season is going to be something to watch for Dexter, with young star athletes in the sports, talented coaching staff looking to make improvements, and a men’s swim program poised to make a consecutive state title run. All in all, the Dreads are something to be excited about in the coming months.
Following last year when they ended their season early by losing in the first rounds of playoffs. This was disappointing for the boys, but this motivates them to move even further this year. Starting off this season 6-2, with their only losses were against Skyline and Chelsea, the Dreads are looking more solid now than ever. Their success starts with their freshman goalie, Kris Eberly. Eberly is strong and able to bring a new level of confidence to the team because of his previous experience on high-level teams. Continue reading “Winter Sports Briefs”

After years of following a traditional Homecoming court structure, DHS jumps ship to a court of royalty rather than King and Queen
By Jacoby Haley and Tess Alekseev
And now, announcing your Homecoming Supreme Royalty…
Wait, what? Homecoming court has always been known as a high school staple, but for Dexter it just became a little different. Faculty members and the student council recently decided to change the traditional Homecoming court: The titles of “King” and “Queen” will now be “Supreme Royalty,” and “Prince” and “Princess” will be “Royalty.”
This change is to be the first of many changes to add inclusivity, a principle some feel has been historically missing in our high school. Staff members told the Squall said they understand there will be push back about this change.
Despite this, these staff members still stand behind the change. Continue reading “Supremacy Reigns”
Peacefully protesting is every American’s right, but doing so during the anthem is misguided
By Jacoby Haley
The athletes of America have been protesting social issues more than ever. In response to wrong doings in America, athletes have taken it upon themselves to kneel as a form of dissatisfaction with the country.
