With her 4.35 GPA and WPIAL title in tennis, freshman Cami Fisher shows her hard work and dedication to BPHS.

Fisher and senior Lily Sierka captured a section and WPIAL doubles title. The team as a whole also won a section and WPIAL title.

When asked how she felt about the win, Fisher said: “Our tennis team this year was very successful… It was the first time a Bethel Park Girls Tennis team won a WPIAL championship in doubles or as a team. It felt amazing to accomplish something like this. It’s still surreal. It felt especially great to do it with the group of girls who I’ve grown up playing with.”

Along with playing tennis for 11 years, Fisher has played lacrosse for eight years. She also is heavily involved in clubs such as SGA, DECA, Best Buddies, and Ways and Means. 

Fisher recently won the Student of the Month award for October. She believes she won because of her academics, success on the tennis team, and relationships with her teachers.

When asked who her biggest inspiration is, Fisher said: “My biggest inspiration is my parents because they always encourage me and support me in everything I do. This is true whether it involves sports, school, or anything else. They always push me to do my best and have given me everything I need to succeed.”

From an outside eye, Fisher seems dedicated to tennis and school, but there are some facts about her people may only know if they talk to her.

When she was a child, her dream job was to be an actress, but she now wants to enter the marketing and sales field.

One of her favorite classes she’s taken so far is Introduction to Culinary Skills. Her favorite season is summer, her favorite movie is “Aladdin,” and her favorite song is “The Grudge” by Olivia Rodrigo.

A fun fact about Fisher is that she is a twin. Her twin’s name is Colton and they have a younger brother named Cayson. 

Fisher is the daughter of social studies teacher Mr. Fisher and special education teacher Mrs. Fisher.

When asked what advice she would give to incoming freshmen, Fisher said: “My tip for incoming freshmen is to be yourself and don’t be nervous because high school is not as scary as it seems. One thing that helped me was being on the tennis team because I got to make friends before the school year started.”

If you see her in the hall, be sure to say hello. And look for her on the lacrosse field come spring.

There’s more to Meghan DeHaven than just an award-winning SNO journalist, Meghan dances at Judy Murtaugh Dance Studio, she sings, she's very involved in the spring musical, and she boasts the title of Head Bethette.  Meghan got involved in Scholastic Publications in her sophomore year because she had an empty space in her schedule. Three years and one Best of SNO award later, she keeps coming back because she says it’s her favorite part of the school day. Meghan believes that her greatest strength is that she can make people feel comfortable despite the situation. Meghan likes that she “can be serious while making sure that everyone can have a good time.” Meghan gives her mother credit for the person she is today. Meghan says that her friends and family keep her true to herself and remind her to stay true to her dreams. Despite being a huge fan of Ohio State Football, Meghan plans to study social media, public relations, and advertising at Point Park University. After college. Meghan’s dream career is to become a concert photographer and be her own boss. Combining both of the things she loves most, live music and photography, Meghan feels like this would be the perfect fit for her. If Meghan ever needed some time away, her dream vacation would be a cozy cabin retreat to somewhere like Montana or Colorado. That or she would like to travel all across Europe and get out of the United States. But before any of that, Meghan has to take a look at where she started. If she could have given herself some advice ten years ago, Meghan would have told herself to get involved in as many clubs and activities as she possibly can and not to let others' opinions concern her. With her eyes set on her future, Meghan DeHaven can achieve anything she wants with the support of her friends and family. Written By: Zane Antonich, Staff Writer

Dribble, dribble, dribble. Pass the ball. Shoot. Score! That’s two points for junior Liz Mackey. Liz is a real team player and you can find her on the court when our JV girls basketball team’s mission is to outscore its opponents. Liz’s biggest goal is to achieve varsity status on the girls basketball team. This is Liz’s first year in Scholastic Publications but not her first year taking photos for the yearbook. Even though Liz didn’t take the class last year, she took photos around the school and at sports events to help out the yearbook so they had more photos to choose from. Liz’s biggest inspiration is her uncle. Wouldn’t you be inspired if your uncle was the captain of the LAPD? Aside from playing high school basketball, she likes to take photos for the yearbook and watch her favorite programs on Netflix. Liz is also involved in Student Government (SGA) where she is a senator; she is also involved in Campus Life, Fall Play, and Best Buddies. Liz has two dogs. Their names are Claire and Tippy.   Written by: Isabella Dudjak, Staff Writer
