Review and Preview: September / October
Despite September being the first full month of the 2017-2018 school year, it was still filled to the brim with athletic events and school functions.
One of the most surprising things to happen during the month of September was when the
Varsity Football team defeated Hilliard Davidson in an overtime game on Friday the first. More about the iconic game can be found here.
The newest addition to the student section at football games is Slim Jimmy, the black inflatable air dancer. Every game he is dressed up for the theme and helps get the students pumped up. Read more about him here.
The biggest movie release of the month was It, which is based off of the book by Stephen King. The movie came out on the eighth and was loved by critics and moviegoers alike, and a review of it can be read here.
Outside of school, Hilliard held their annual Old Hilliardfest on the ninth. Vendors lined the streets of Old Hilliard and students in the Darby Theatre Troupe volunteered with the festivities. Read all about it here.
On the twelfth of the month, the girls Varsity soccer team defeated Dublin Scioto 1-0, despite the pouring rain. The details of the game can be read here.
On that same day, the girls Varsity volleyball team won against Hilliard Bradley, making them the best team in Hilliard. Two days later the JV team beat Delaware Hayes in a game that went to three sets. Articles on the two games can be found here and here.
The last week of the month was homecoming week. Every day students dressed up in a
different theme, with the last day being Panther gear. To see how Panthers dressed up throughout the week, check here. On Wednesday the annual bonfire was at the North Fields, and that event can be read about here. Details about the homecoming game on Friday night are located here, and the homecoming dance article can be read here.
Students and administration worked hard throughout the month and many can prove this through achievements or recognition they received. Read all about the greatness at Darby here.
