Ever heard of Ping Pong Club? It was just created by a freshman last year, Angela Xu. She’s a sophomore now and looking forward to a whole year of ping pong. Even with it being started just a few months before school ended last year, they now have over 80 people in the club, around 50 coming every week.
It’s October and that means MLB Playoffs! and the remaining teams as of now are the Cubs, Yankees, Dodgers, and the Astros. The teams that I think are going to the World Series are the Yankees and the Cubs. The team that will win the World Series is the Cubs although they are down 0-2 against the Dodgers. I have been a Cubs fan since I started watching baseball and because my family are fans too.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle An Incredibly Fun, Action Packed, Over the Top Sequel That Feels a Little Crowded.
The first Kingsman film taglined, The Secret Service, was released in 2014 with director Matthew Vaughn, known for 2010’s Kick-Ass and 2011’s X-Men: First Class, truly came out of nowhere. Despite being based on a beloved Graphic Novel, you would be hard pressed to find someone would knew of its existence before the film’s release. However, this lack of brand recognition actually helped Kingsman more than hurt it. With expectations relatively low, many audience members were not expecting one of the best spy-comedies in decades.

The line at the ticketing booth was the longest it has been all season on the surprisingly warm September night. The parking lot was jam-packed, full of students, parents, recent grads, and old alumni. It was not only the event of night, but the week. The annual Central-Centennial football game full of same town rivalry was just minutes away from kickoff.
Centennial Chargers football is something we all know and love. Centennial football has always been a favorite for Centennial students. This year the Chargers are looking to be a really good team and a team that has success. In order to do that however, there going to need tons of support from fans and all that are involved with Centennial.
The Centennial volleyball team’s biggest goal is to beat their biggest opponent is central and they plan on taking the W when they play their opponent.
Sophomore player, Zhanae Flintroy said “We started practicing over the summer” The team had a summer camp and open gym so that players could get ready for tryouts.
Lia Potter and Angela Maligaya are the co-captains of the JV volleyball team and it is important to them because its helps them make new friends and they really like team bonding.
I believe that the girls are to have a wonderful season this year and I wish them the best of luck #GoChargers
