In game one at Progressive Field in Cleveland, the Indians’ Corey Kluber threw a 6+ inning gem with 9 K’s (strikeouts), while the Indians offense was powered by catcher, Roberto Perez’s two homers. One of the homers was a three-run home run off Cubs’ ace Jon Lester. Relievers, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen, held the Cubs at bay and secured the shutout as the Indians won 6-0, taking a 1-0 lead in the series.
In game two, it was the Cubs’ hitters that stole the show. Kyle Schwarber led the charge with a crucial RBI single in the third inning. Pitcher Trevor Bauer was removed from the game in the fourth inning as the Cubs powerful offense proved too much. Cubs’ pitcher Jake Arrieta dominated throwing a little over 5 no-hit innings. Aroldis Chapman eventually took over to close out the game. The Cubs won by a score of 5-1, evening the series at one a piece.
In game three, runs came at a premium as the series moved to Chicago’s historic Wrigley field. Both the Indians’ Josh Tomlin and the Cubs’ Kyle Hendricks pitched well; however, both were taken out after about four innings despite neither have given up any runs. With the help of an RBI single from the Indians’ Coco Crisp, the Indians took a 2-1 lead in the series.
In game four, Corey Kluber delivered a fantastic start for the Indians, out pitching the Cubs’ John Lackey. Despite giving up a run in the first inning, Kluber threw six strong innings before turning it over to the bullpen in the seventh. Lackey gave up three runs and the Cubs bullpen gave up four more en route to a 7-1 Indians win. Jason Kipnis was the offensive star hitting a three-run home run in the seventh inning. This win put the Indians up 3-1 in the series, one win away from becoming world champions.
In game five, the last game at Wrigley, the Cubs needed to win to stay alive. Again, the Cubs got to Trevor Bauer in the fourth inning. Meanwhile, Jon Lester pitched well for the Cubs, limiting the Indians to just two runs. In the seventh, Cubs manager Joe Maddon brought in closer Aroldis Chapman. Chapman came through, keeping the cubs’ championship hopes alive by sending the series back to Cleveland.
In game six, the Cubs were once again facing elimination. However, they had gained some momentum from their game five win. The Cubs’ offense was relentless scoring three runs in the first inning and four runs in the third inning. After the Cubs got ahead they never looked back and they won the game by a score of 9-3, forcing a game 7.
In game seven, the Indians had their ace Corey Kluber on the mound. For the second time in the series, Kluber was pitching on short rest and he only lasted a little over four innings. By the sixth inning, the Cubs gained a commanding 6-3 lead. However, Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman surrendered a game-tying three-run home run to Indians’ centerfielder Rajai Davis in the eighth inning. The whole baseball world was stunned as it seemed the Cubs were once again falling apart. After both offenses were blanked in the ninth inning, the game went into a seventeen minute rain delay before extra innings. During this rain delay the Cubs’ Jason Heyward called a team meeting in the clubhouse. He reminded the team of who they were and what they were there to do. The Cubs went out in the tenth inning and rallied. A double from Ben Zobrist scored Kyle Schwarber and then a single by Miguel Montero gave the Cubs an 8-6 lead. The Indians would score one run in the bottom half of the inning, but fell short, giving the Cubs their first World Series championship in 108 years.
That game seven could very well go down as the single greatest game ever played in the history of Major League Baseball. The Cubs’ 2016 championship could be the greatest achievement in Baseball history possibly sports history. Yes, winning the World Series is special for any team that wins, but this one was different. Some might say that “the curse of the billy goat” has been lifted. In reality, there was no curse or evil spell, just a franchise whose fans desperately craved a championship. Well, now you have one Chicago.

Al Smith Dinner Highlights

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


Email This Story






The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, commonly known as the Al Smith Dinner, is an annual white tie fundraiser in the United States for Catholic charities supporting “the neediest children of the Archdiocese of New York, regardless of race, creed, or color.” It is organized by the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation in honor of Al Smith. This year, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had a chance to exchange jokes about one another and poke fun at some of the other high profile guests in attendance. Both candidates maintained a relatively tame atmosphere that was in stark contrast to that of their three prior debates. Clinton had a slew of quality jokes prepared for the dinner. So many, in fact, it made me want to vote for her writers.  Here are just a few of my favorites:

“This is such a special event, that I took a break from my rigorous nap schedule to be here.”

“But getting through these three debates with Donald has to count as a miracle.”

“Since this is a friendly dinner, Donald, feel free, at any time, to stand up and say ‘Wrong.’

While i’m talking.”

“Come to think of it, it’s amazing that i’m up here after Donald. I didn’t think he would be ok with a peaceful transition of power.”

“Donald, after listening to your speech, I will also enjoy listening to Mike Pence deny you ever gave it.”

“It is great also to see Mayor Bloomberg here. It’s a shame he’s not speaking tonight I’m curious to hear what a billionaire has to say.

Trump had some quality jokes of his own about. His jokes were more lighthearted than Clinton’s.  My favorite quotes from Donald are as follows:

“He used to love me when I was a Democrat.”

“Truth is, I am actually a modest person.  In fact, many people told me that modesty is my best quality.  Even better than my temperament.”

“In fact, just before taking the diocese, Hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, ‘Pardon Me.’”

“After listening to Hillary rattle on and on, I don’t think so badly of Rosie O’donnell anymore.”

“This is the first time ever, ever that Hillary is sitting down and speaking to major corporate leaders and not getting paid for it.”

“Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. It’s fantastic. They think she’s absolutely great. My wife, Melania, give the exact, same speech and people get on her case.”

CBS news has two great highlight videos from the Dinner in case you want to check it out yourself:

Is Someone in your Phone?

Can the NSA spy on you? Can the NSA or any hacker, gain access to your phone’s camera or even track your every move? Technically, yes. With the right skills, anyone can hack into your phone camera. The NSA could, theoretically, gain access to your phone or laptop camera if they felt so inclined. However, it is very rare that an ordinary civilian would be hacked; hackers usually target important government officials and celebrities. Just last Friday, the company Dyn, whose servers monitor and reroute internet traffic, experienced a massive cyber attack, leaving many major websites inaccessible to people across the US. The motives of Hackers vary, but some do it to access secret information and track the online activity of certain people. Hackers can also track your location through maps and apps that you allow to use your location. They can see where you spend most of your time and infer where your house and work/school is.

There are many ways you can prevent hackers from gaining access to your devices, specifically your phone. The most obvious one is to lock your phone whenever you are not using it. Additionally, having a more complicated password, that uses a mix of numbers capital letters and symbols, can increase a device’s security. Another way to prevent hacking is to turn on your phone’s tracker ability. This will detect when you are being tracked or hacked. One way to save all the data on your phone is to backup your phone regularly. Then, if your phone does get hacked, your will still have all your photos, contacts, and other important information stored away. If you’re super worried about someone hacking into your camera and watching you, simply cover the camera with a post it note or tape. This will prevent them from being able to see through the camera. Also, stay away from suspicious sites and links. Some sites will often have viruses or bugs that allow people to hack into your device. Finally, turning off access to your location on phone apps that don’t require it for navigational purposes is a good idea. This will insure that you are not being tracked. Despite all this, you should not be worried about being hacked as it is relatively uncommon.

Homecoming Recap

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


Email This Story






Homecoming: a beloved tradition for high schools across the country, but not at the School, until now. When electing Spirit Masters at the end of last year, Seniors Maddie Dyke and AJ Stella offered many ideas including a homecoming dance for the coming school year, and they delivered on their promise.

On October 7th, the Upper School held its first homecoming, with an entrance fee of $15. That price was reduced if one attended the sports events earlier in the day. Preluding the Homecoming was a home Varsity Soccer game against College Preparatory School, one of the biggest games of the season according to Stella, Co-Captain of the men’s varsity soccer team. There was also a home Varsity Volleyball game against Valley Christian High School. Those who attended the games received a voucher for a discount of five dollars.

Instead of a pep-rally beforehand, the Upper School will had an assembly dedicated to family-feud style games, such as sibling rivalry competitions and more. The dance was a Pseudo-Hawkins dance, which meant students who identify as male could not ask people who identify as females. Stella stated, “We are encouraging freshmen to go with whomever they want. It’s their first High School dance; there’s no pressure to find a date.”

Dyke also reminded the Upper School that it was not a formal dance. Instead, students were encouraged to come dressed in grade-wide colors: black from freshmen, blue for sophomores, red for juniors, and white for seniors. The dance was a huge success and will likely become a fall tradition.
