Faculty vs. Students By: Race Witaker The faculty vs. Students basketball game is coming up and there might be a few questions unanswered by the flyers. Maybe our interview with Coach Hill can answer some of these questions. The rules of the games will be modified—free throws won’t be shot but if someone is fouled they will get automatic points. Technical fouls will be issued during the game because the students teams will be coached by an eighth grader who might want to argue with the referee more than an actual coach. Some of the other activities during the event will be a half-court shot contest which will be available to all students and has prizes including ps4 gift cards and Xbox cards. A knockout contest between all Bon Lin basketball players. The teachers and the students both have advantages over each other that can increase their chances to win. The students have a good chance of winning because they are more athletic and youthful, and they have better speed than the teachers. The student also has a great team chemistry because they’ve played together the whole year. Some of the teachers strategies involve their intelligence and physical attributes. Coach Hill says they will win because they are smarter and just better basketball players. Whichever team you’re rooting for students or teachers both have a good chance to win.

Fortnite 8.10 Update Live
By: Conner Townsend This new update is the biggest update this season. It brought the brand new Baller vehicle. Also, it brings the new Flint-Knock pistol. Finally it brings the much wanted One Shot game mode back.
The new Baller vehicle is by far the best vehicle. You’re completely protected while in it and it has 300 hp. Its super fun to grapple across the map in and grapple up hills.
The new Flint-Knock pistol is the brand new waited weapon. Its not getting much love from the community though. It does around 86/90 damage up close and 172 damage for a headshot. It only has one bullet per shot. It uses heavy ammo, and it has a very big kick. Like when you shoot it you will fly in the high for a little bit.
The old game mode called One Shot is back. It has low gravity set so when you jump you fly in the air. It has only sniper rifles, and you only have 50hp. Hints the name One Shot. Also, the Gauntlet tournament is back and will run 24 a day. Thats all for this update. I hope to see you on the Battle Bus.
