On Thursday, October 13, the seventh- and eighth-grade boys soccer team competed in the Long Island Athletic Association of Independent Schools (LIAAIS) Soccer Tournament, which was held at the Green Vale School. The Bulldogs placed third in the tournament.
The squad’s first game was against East Woods School. The team came out with a big victory, winning 2-1. Eighth-grader Alex Goldenberg was the first to score with a beautiful shot from outside the 18-yard box. The ball flew into the back of the net, and the goalie had no chance. Next, eighth-grader Thanasi Pappas scored on a volley from a nice cross by seventh-grader Jake Belliveau. East Woods then scored one goal, but Buckley managed to keep the lead.
Both presidential candidates did a stellar job in the third presidential candidates’ debate on Wednesday, October 19. The debate was located at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was the final debate of the campaign season, so both candidates gave it their all.
Now that Republican businessman Donald Trump has won a very close election, all Americans should support him as our new president. The campaigns and Election Day itself all featured many ups and down along the way. This is not what our founding fathers would have wanted it to be like. America is supposed to be a nation of growth and acceptance. This election became a “he said, she said” election. We both stand with Donald Trump, not because of what he has said and done, but because of his policies. If we would have elected Democratic Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as president, no one would know what would have come.
