The fall season has been eventful for the Trojans so far but is starting to wind down as post-season approaches.

The boys and girls cross country teams are hosting their home meet on Oct. 5. It will be the last regular season meet for the runners before the post-season. The Hawkeye Ten conference meet will be held in Carroll on Oct. 12. From there, the teams will be preparing for the district meet. Sites for the meet have been released but pairings are yet to be known. The State meet will be Oct. 27 and Oct. 28.

The volleyball team will be facing the Winterset Huskies at Winterset on Oct. 5. The team has one more regular season game against St. Albert before their post-season. The first round of post-season play will be against Des Moines Christian on Oct. 17 at Des Moines Christian High School.

The football team plays Perry on Oct. 6 at the Atlantic Trojan Bowl. The next week they will be facing Harlan Community at Harlan. Following that game, they will play Nevada on Oct. 20. The Nevada game will be Senior Night for the team.

These teams need lots of support and encouragement as the post-season nears. Show up to the activities and cheer loudly for our Trojans!

About the Contributor
Claire Pellett
Claire Pellett, Staff Writer, Lead Podcast Editor
Ella Meyer is an AHS junior and in her second year of journalism. Meyer is the lead podcast editor for AHS journalism. Her favorite part is First Fridays.Meyer said, “It is when all of the leads get together and we talk about stuff and we just usually end up having some sort of fun and like laughing and just having a pretty good time.” Meyer is specialized in the podcast department of journalism. Her favorite memory in Journalism is over the summer of 2023 a group went to Media Now, which is a journalism camp. “I had so much fun, you do crazy games and I got really close with some of my fellow journalism people because we had to spend a week together in a dorm room in all these dorms and I'd say that’s probably my favorite. It got crazy and we had so much fun.” Meyer likes how journalism is different by how everyone works together, shares ideas as well as supporting each other on the ideas, and giving each other the best feedback possible so you can succeed. Currently Meyer is not involved in anything but journalism but Meyer picked up scrapbooking and is looking forward to it. She also enjoys reading in her free time.  Meyer is most proud of her Read Across America Yearbook page that she made last year. She got a lot of compliments on and Ms. Berryhill entered it into a contest and they are still waiting for the results. Meyer hopes to go into an education major to teach journalism down the road.  Story by Jersey Green
