In the weekly series, “In Case You Missed It,” News Editor Selena Liu summarizes stories from the past week with links to the corresponding WSPN article.

Features:
Staff Reporter Annika Martins spotlighted WHS’s new science department head, Bill Bobrowsky. Co-Editor Penelope Biddle and Staff Reporter Jessi Dretler overviewed Mark Liddell’s presentation on Black History Month. Meanwhile, Staff Reporter Madeline Zajac and Marissa Mendoza produced chapter two of Humans of WHS.
Sports:
Staff Reporters Edge Wheeler and Ben Jackson spotlighted WHS wrestling head coach, Sean Chase.
“On Jan. 6, Wayland High School wrestling head coach Sean Chase achieved his 300th victory in his coaching career with the Wayland Warriors,” Wheeler and Jackson wrote. “S. Chase’s career has been filled with record-setting and history-making moments, such as winning state championships in 2010 and 2016.”
Opinion:
WSPN’s Jennifer Shine and Bella Schreiber discussed why Bill Belichick needs to retire from the NFL.
“It is clear that Belichick has had great success, but everyone’s prime comes to an end at some point,” Shine and Schreiber wrote. “With the Patriots’s last game of the 2023-2024 football season, Belichick became the coach with the most losses. He is out of his prime, and nobody at the age of 71 is at their best.”

Editor Tina Su and WSPN’s Hallie Luo reviewed Kura Revolving Sushi Bar. Staff Reporter Melina Barris wrote about the Passion 4 Fashion club hosting a makeshift thrift store. Meanwhile, WSPN’s Mischa Lee and Staff Reporter Elyssa Grillo shared their fashion predictions for 2024.

WSPN’s Katya Luzarraga, Staff Reporter Maggie Buffum and Luo produced a video on Window Dance Ensemble’s winter week performance.

Co-Editor Sasha Libenzon and Staff Reporter Annika Martins produced a video of WHS’s a capella groups’ performances during winter week. Guest Reporter Rufat Hasanov photographed Tri-M Music Honor Society’s performance.
