This year is the 61st annual Lions Roping in Three Rivers California. This four day event is hosted by the Three Rivers Lions Club. In 1947, The Lions Club was established by Lee Maloy and his roping friends. With a true passion for roping, and help from others in the community, they formed this annual event. Locals from Three Rivers roping and I had a blast. There was great food, drinks, and overall a great time. We saw two of our students at WHS, Clayton and Callie Vincent. They did a great job. Unfortunately they did not win but a great try. If you could not make it this year going next year would be a huge recommendation. The Three Rivers Roping is a fun time.

Student athletes have been trying their hardest this Spring. Whether it be baseball and softball or track and swimming everyone is giving it their all. The seasons aren’t over yet and every team still has a chance to make a name for themselves.
Baseball has a record of 10-8 overall and is 4-3 in league. Carlos Pena is leading the team in batting average with a very respectable .347. Manny Martinez has received five wins on the mound. JV baseball is 3 and 5. Catlin Mcmains is their main pitcher. Niko Bursiaga is playing catcher and doing very well at hitting. The team is made up of primarily freshmen, but all are hardworking and determined to win.
The softball team continues to work hard, they are currently 1-15. The leading hitters, Callie Vincent and Pria Bun have accomplished the same goal; they are both home run hitters. J.V. softball is 3-4 in league, which is giving the program some hope for the future.
Swimming is second in league and they have two valley qualifiers. Mason Smith and Lauren Little have both qualified for Valley that will be held on May 12. Mason is going to Valley to compete in two events: the 100 butterfly and 50 freestyle, while Lauren is going for 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke.

Spring season is here! With the change of weather, there will be a change in the student’s outfits. Girls, make sure your shorts are long enough and your shirts are high enough at the top, no low cut shirts. Also make sure that your tank tops have thick straps, no shoulders and no razor backs. Boys, make sure your pants are pulled up and your underwear is not showing, also tank tops must be fitted around the armpits and cannot be low cut, no skin should be showing on the sides, on the back, or shoulders. Girls, If your bra straps are showing than that is not in dress code. All bra straps must not be showing in order to follow dress code. If students do not follow the dress code you will be representing your high school with a P.E shirt, so if that is not your desired outfit, be sure to follow this code.

Within the Woodlake swim team, there are two swimmers who have qualified for the 2017 Valley Finals. One of the swimmers is Mason Smith who has qualified for 100 butterfly with a 1:01, and 50 freestyle with a 25.03. The other qualifier is Lauren Little, who has qualified for the individual 100m breaststroke with a 1:19.33, and 50m freestyle with a 27.54. Even though it is just the two attending Valley, the other swimmers still have been competing strongly throughout the season. Several have cut off multiple seconds and improved far past expectation. Coach Suzie has put countless hours into making the team better as a whole, which has payed off. Let’s see how the swim team continues to do, good luck to them!
