A look at what Jags are up to during February’s first full week.
Grant Yeater ‘25 plays the viola with the Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) before the Nuggets game against the Portland Trailblazers at Ball Arena Feb. 4. Yeater auditioned for the group in July 2023 and achieved a position in the Symphony, the most advanced of the four ensembles in CYSO. All four groups were invited to perform a Hamilton Medley approximately 30 minutes before the game began. “This was such a cool experience because I got to play my viola, which is one of my favorite things to do in my free time, in front of a bunch of people,” Yeater said. “This is also my first time at a Nuggets game as well as my first time inside of Ball Arena, so this is a really exciting night for me.” Media by Claire Yeater
Sam Sovich ‘26 pipettes planaria into a petri plate in Susanne Petri’s Intro to Biotech class Feb. 5. In the lab, students conducted then measured the regeneration of planaria after being cut. “I like this lab because we are giving our planaria Alani Energy to see how it affects their regeneration and I like that we get to incorporate things I use everyday,” Sovich said.

To celebrate the coming Lunar New Year, Alaiya Bugge ‘27 staples a dragon to the wall of the 8000s pod during sixth period Feb. 8. The dragon was made by the National Chinese Honor Society, adorned with post-it note Chinese characters made by students in their Seminars earlier that day. “Celebrating Chinese New Year is important because it celebrates and raises awareness about Chinese culture to everyone,” Bugge said.

If the group placed in one of the top four positions for their competition, they will progress to FBLA State, which is held at the Gaylord Hotel in April. “I think FBLA is a great club to join because of the experiences at State and Nationals,” Khotra said.

As the seniors wore their senior sashes, their underclassmen teammates presented them with signs. Cross plans on either attending Indiana University or the University of Georgia to study business management. “Senior Night was very bittersweet. It felt very rewarding to be acknowledged for my time on the team,” Cross said. “While it was extremely exciting to celebrate my future plans, it was also very sad commemorating the last four years and saying goodbye to a sport I’ve dedicated so much of my time to.” (media by Sanaa Sow)
