Article 1: Wisconsin Badgers vs Kentucky
On April 4th, the Wisconsin Badgers squared up against the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats. Much of the country saw Kentucky as the invincible young team, but the Badgers treated them as any other team, that they just wanted to play their hearts out to advance to the national championship.

During the second half it seemed as though the Badgers were playing 8 on 5 with plenty of horrible calls against them by the refs. Ten minutes into the second half, Kentucky was up by four points, but oddly slowed the pace down causing them to have three shot clock violations in four possessions. The Badgers surged back to win 71-64 and to be the first team to become victorious after taking the court with them in the season.

Article 3: Discovery World Field Trip
On Monday April 13th, the Aquarius House from Bay View Middle School took a field trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin's discovery world. The students were very excited and the teachers even more.
The students excitement was high until they arrived and were handed packets full of questions to fill out. As the mood dimmed from the questions the students couldn't even enjoy the exhibits and activities.
As one kid named Ryan stated "the question ruined the fun experience", and many would agree with him.
As the field trip proceeded, after lunch they watched a rather interesting show on Tesla, but a few kids claimed they dozed off a couple times finding it very boring.
The majority of the student population that took the trip would have rather stayed for a day of school, but the teachers still believe that museums are enjoyable for the students, and they would be wrong!
