    Harriman High School Volleyball made a comeback to the school in 2014, and entering 2017 the Lady Devils and fourth year head coach Angela Monkhouse bring back a lot of experience and excitement to the program.

    With school starting that also means that fall sports are getting in the swing of things. One sport starts their matches before school even gets going and that’s boy’s and girl’s golf.

  • Textbooks come before sports

    I know what you who read this weekly column are thinking with this headline. “Brody, you’re a sportswriter. How can you say academics are more important than athletics?”

    In the wake of UCLA’s highly-touted quarterback Josh Rosen firing a deafening salvo at the dual lives of being a collegiate football player and trying to maintain life as a college student, Rosen brought many coherent, well-thought out, valid points to the forefront.
