October is considered by many students and staff members to be one of the busiest months in the village, and so far, this October has been no different.

Fall athletics are beginning to round out their seasons, many of them preparing for the playoffs. After a heartbreaking loss to Reagan 35-26 at home a couple of weeks ago, the varsity football team bounced back last week to take down Davie on the road 50-42 on Oct. 13.

The Titans face R.J. Reynolds on the road Friday, Oct. 20, in their second to last game of the season. The girls varsity volleyball team, although losing their last regular season game 3-1 to East Forsyth on the road on Oct. 12, have moved into the conference playoffs, where they faced Mount Tabor on Oct. 16 and Davie on Oct. 17. The boys varsity soccer team has continued their excellence, shutting out both of their opponents last week, Parkland 4-0 at home on Oct. 9 and Glenn 3-0 on the road on Oct. 11. They faced Reagan on the road on Oct. 16 and Davie at home on Oct. 18, and will face R.J. Reynolds next at home on Oct. 23.

The varsity football team was not the only one playing under the lights of Peoples Stadium this week. Junior and senior girls took the field as well on Oct. 17 for the annual Powderpuff Football Game, consisting of two teams from each grade coached by members of the varsity football team, and played in a tournament-like fashion. All profits from the highly anticipated game benefited the Clemmons Food Pantry.

The National Honors Society is inducting new members this coming Tuesday evening, Oct. 24. Congratulations to all the new members on their amazing accomplishments.

This week is Free Application Week for many participating North Carolina colleges. On Oct. 16 and 17, seniors were able to attend information sessions during select class periods about how to approach Free Application Week and which schools qualified. Seniors, it is highly recommended that you apply to any participating schools before the end of the week so that you get the application fee waived.

The fall one-act plays were a huge success this past weekend. With the first of the “To Thine Own Self Be True” season behind them, the drama department now prepares for their full-length, double casted production, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged” next month. Mark your calendars for Nov. 15-18 at 7 p.m.

The first quarter is flying by, Titans. Keep up the hard work.
