As of September 9, their area 2 new crazy drivers on the streets. These boys, anxious to get their permit make their way to the local DMV. They are eager to start driving. Their parents are hesitant to have them drive. On the road now, the boys start to drive. One of they boys instructors, due to past events, was very nervous. On the other hand, the other driver was doing just fine. So he says. Nobody but himself can back that statement up. We'll have to trust him on that. Watch out Tuscola, crazy drivers on the loose!
The nervousness and stress wandering through the halls was all caused by one thing. PARCC. The seventh and eighth grade students of East Prairie Middle School all had to go through the struggle of a brand new test on a foreign device. This test was taken 3 times a year in 2015 with horrible scheduling. Each student had to miss at least one class a day and others even had to arrange new lunch periods. All students had to take home homework from their missed classes and re-copy notes from others. The questions had been harder than previous years questions and many individuals didn't know what to do with them. There weren't enough computers for everyone and certain computer lab classes had to be re-scheduled. No one had enough time in the day to completely finish the scheduled tests. Let's hope this year is easier than the last.
Yuck! Mice terrify me and when I see them I tend to scream like a little girl. Mrs. Logan's 5th hour composition class had a mouse by the door. The student was spacing off and very subtly said 'there's a mouse over there!' That made a huge commotion and the noisy, curious boys got up to have look for themselves. False alarm! Thankfully, the boys said they didn't see any sign of a mouse, but the boy still swore that he saw one. For the rest of the period, kids kept looking over there and paying more attention to the "mouse". What a interesting class! Who doesn't enjoy a good laugh while learning? Those 8th graders have a fun year ahead of them. I wish you, East Prairie Hornets, a mouse free year!
During the month of March and May, kids where disgusted of what they had to hear. In the school of Tuscola East Prairie, kids where not excited about the PARCC testing. The 7th and 8th grader where not excited but knew they would have to suffer through it. During the test, the students would squirm and mess around in their chairs. The 7th and 8th graders had to take them on computers. The computers where very complicated, because they had different buttons and students didn't like them. The reasons for the tests is because the state makes the students take them. The students thought the PARCC testing was stupid and dumb. The teachers in the school of East Prairie think its not bad because they are not not taking them, but the students do. Even though the PARCC testing's are hard, the students always do great every year.

Then one of the girls falls on top of him. Then 2 of of the girls gave up. Mason gets back up and picks up a cone and gets in trouble with the teacher.then the other girl gave up to.
The Phone Call
It was a peaceful evening on September 9th. Until Amie Lee, a mother of three girls, gets a call from her second daughter at 4:30 p.m. Chloe was crying over the phone. "What's wrong?" asked Amie. During Chloe's basketball practice one of her contacts fell out. Amie Knew that something else must have been wrong. Once she got to the basketball practice at East Prairie Middle School Chloe ran to her crying. Chloe told her that her rib was hurting really bad. Apparently, Chloe'[s rib had been hurting since the beginning of the school day. Chloe was in a lot of pain. Amie tells her that she will take her to the doctor the next day. We will have the results later.
"Do we have to do this'? That's what you heard if your a student or a teacher at EP. It was what all kids dreaded every year! The state mandated test for Junior High students. Around every March & May EP has to take this test every year, but now it's even harder! It is called the PARCC Test, which just got created to start this year. You knew it was this time of year when the halls are as silent as a mouse and as crazy as a loon! Even teachers hated this part of the year because it was very hard top cooperate things. The only good thing about PARCC was it's on computers! I know, when kids hear technology is coming to use, it puts a spark in their brain. From seeing the students, there are a lot of mixed emotions about this. Some were off ones rocker about this or some were just upbeat about it and wanted to get it done. The students after it was all done were perky and knew they had another year till the disaster came back!
Parcc testing got the Tuscola E.P. Kids goin crazy. They absolutely hate Parcc testing. The state is forcing schools to take Parcc twice a year. The students think it's a waste of time. They told me it's long and boring. They said the tests don't always work. The computers are always crashing. The teachers think it's good for the students. That it sees how much they've learned through out the year. The E.P. Students aid and I quote " we can't stand Parcc and won't have it".
The months of March and May many people won't forget. This event is very major during the few weeks, of the months at East Prairie Middle School in Tuscola, Illinois. Students were extremely stressed in what new skills that they had to learn. They had to learn very elaborated steps in learning how to do PARCC on the computer. This was a state mandated test to see if you have learned what is needed.It totally blew the students minds.They realized the classes they had during the PARCC testing they were still responsible for the homework they missed.Kids were very angered they had to do so. ON top of all of that they then had to take it twice a year and each session is about a week. The computers were very hard to set up and cope with logging on. So some students had to make up the tests after the sessions because of the computer troubles even though they should have already taken it.
Do you wanna hear about the most craziest year end of the year? PARCC TESTING!!!! Everyone was so confused about were to go and what time to leave the classes to go to the right testinng hour. So many people were always out of class you u had to make up all the homework you missed and check to see how much you missed. Sometimes when you tried to log-in it said that u cant and so then you had to go to the office so they can fix it so you can take the test. you had to take two math test and three literature tests and they werent that easy to do. It was the most craziest couple weeks of my life. Everyonme was so stressed out on how to get it alll to workout. In my thought i think that paper and pencil was easier than computers. Computers was just harder to work with than pencil and paper. But everyone has there own opinions on evrything. This is all i had to say about parcc Testing!!
Here is the news at East Prairie; Students are doing Parcc. There is a bunch of speculation such as, some are ecstatic while some are terrified. Even the teachers have butterflies in there stomach's. But being a state required test it can not be skipped. For the eighth and seventh grade it will be on computer. For the fifth and sixth grade it will be paper and pencil. Parcc will replace Isats test too, of course. It is longer, as well. All the students will be fine, teachers say, and will, probably, learn something. This is all on the East Prairie News.
Breaking News, the 7th and 8th graders have had to switch their ISAT testing program to something entirely new. All of the 7th and 8th graders were tense. It was about the middle of March when this event occurred. Illinois had changed their regular testing program to Parcc. It was going to be their first time taking Parcc on on computers.The teachers instructed the students to log on using a username and password that she gave them. Suddenly the students started to complain that they couldn't go on. the teacher told them to go to a new computer but it still didn't work. Eventually after about two weeks the computers started to work again and everybody got their tests finished. They were relieved that the testing was over. until the found out that they had to take it again next month. in the end everyone finished every Parcc test and had fun in the Parcc party.
Last year around March and May during the school year the 7th and 8th grade students and teachers were doing something new. Tuscola East Prairie was starting a new testing called PARCC. Of course, from the start most students were not very excited. They got all mad and worked up as well as frustrated while doing this. One thing the kids did like was they didn't have to do it on paper anymore, it was all on line. There were also plenty of bad things too. For example the two biggest problems were issues with the computers and and schedules. This messed everyone's schedules up even the teachers. Some kids didn't get recess and some of there lunch got taken away, you also missed a lot of classes during this time. A lot of teachers had to get subs for their classes. This was very stressful for the kids and the teachers. No body really liked it. Everyone had to be quite, no talking what so ever not even in the halls when you are changing classes. The bad part was the state requires it, so even though the kids don't like it they still have to take it this year as well.
On May 5th, 2015. East Prairie Middle School. Got to go to the university of Illinois. And watch Luke, Connie, and Malaya participate in many different events. The East Prairie students got to go watch Luke reed Connie and mikayla. The east prairie students were happy that thy got to go and had a great time. When they were there they got to watch them predicate in many sporting events such as high jump and etc. they said they would love to go back again.!
Ugh. Why do we have to do this anyways? I hate this.This is hard. Those are probably a few comments that you will hear if you go to East Prairie Middle School. 7th and 8th grade students are doing a type of common core test called "PARCC". If any of them had a choice to do this or not, most of them would probably not have taken it. During the months of April and May these students had to take the test. They did PARCC on computers in their computer lab at school.The state of Illinois made it mandatory. Of course it will be scary, but they will make it through it, or will they?
My name is Cohen Willms reporting 5th Hour Recess with the 6th Graders. There were some boys playing a serious game of football at recess. As the game is going on Jalen Quinn one of the teams quarterbacks. He got rushed. He ran for a really nice touchdown. Then the kickoff happened, it was really tense as the kick return guy fumbled the ball and then the other team recovered it. Jalen was the quarterback for his team. Jalen had all attention to the left side and not paying attention to the right side. Payton Armstrong came to the right side like a raging banshee and got a nice sack on Jalen. The next play resulted in a interception by James Parsley. Then Mrs. Pugh walking out like a speed demon and then yells at them like a barbarian to stop tackling. That is the end of my news article.
It was a stressful year for the 7&8th grade because of the PARCC assesment. This test has two sessions one at the middle of the year, and one at the end of the year. this was a stressful non problem free procese. One of the many problems was the computers would crash and stop working. The problem was the kids were unfamiliar with the computer based test. It was very stressful. Kids were mad and angry. Some were stresed and sad. The East Prairie kids hope it will be better next year. This is Coulson Poffenberger over and out.
Picture this a new event has just occurred. Mrs. Logan had her 5th hour composition class in her classroom teaching them at this moment. A girl was sitting in the back right corner of the room. Another student a couple feet away from the girl was Gibson Wells. He kept staring in her direction and she looked very confused. Until all of a sudden he says "Mrs. Logan, there is a mouse over there in the corner." He had said this very calm and relaxed. Then about six boys went to get up and see this mouse. Except when they went over there POOF!, it was gone and to this day we still wonder where the mystery mouse went.
The Big Challenge is Headed to East Prairie!
7th and 8th grade students were terrified of the new challenge headed to East Prairie. It was about the last week in March when the 7th graders at East Prairie Middle School were very nervous about starting the the new PARCC test mandatory through the state. All of the years in the past the 7th graders took simple, easy ISATS with pencil and paper. Now the state is making them do the PARCC test on the computer. The students were very angry, frustrated, with the new challenge/change. The computers were very hard to set up and wouldn't always work. Some students couldn't even take the test because of computer problems.The scheduling was very confusing to most students because because their schedules got all changed because of the weird blocks of time. The first week of testing didn't go very good because of problems some 7th graders had said. All of the students were glad PARCC was finally over, and ready to have the annually party for taking for taking the miserable test . Until they got advised the state was making them take another hard test in May. Since they had already took the test once they knew what to prepare for. Many people were mad.sad, nervous, and stressed to have to take the test again. They were interested to see what the state would make them do next year.
my name is Sergio Martinez reporting about a football game at the 6th grade recess. Mrs. Pugh goes into a rampage when the 6th graders play a tackle football game. first jaylyn quin run and gets a touchdown. then he sacked the quarter back. he scored again. he sacks the quarterback. this time mrs pugh catches them playing tackle football. mrs pugh gave them a warning. then peyton Armstrong tackles jailyn and then they got chewed out. that's the story.
Football, it's a game with touchdowns field goals, and tackling and at most games there are cheerleaders cheering them on. On September 9th, 2015 at East Prairie Middle School some JFL cheerleaders proved how much they love and enjoy cheer. Now when they start practicing at school you know they love what they're doing. A 5th grader, Mikayla Dunn, was helping people with the cheers. She's on the JFL cheer squad and she tries really hard. Some of the cheers they did were "Touchdown", "Soul", and "Go, Fight, Win." Two other girls sat on a bench and judged every cheer. Another girl doing the cheers was Alisha, and she's on the cheer squad to. She puts in as much effort as she does for good grades, now that's saying something. You can definitely tell these girls are ready for the game on Saturday, September 19th, in Tolono and the final game on Saturday, September 26th. If you want to see these girls in action come to the game this Saturday in Tolono or the game next Saturday at the Tuscola High School Football Field and Track, see you there!
Spring is usually the time of a school year that students look forward to. Warmer weather and summer break is right around the corner. However, some students at East Prairie Middle School may not be looking forward to Spring as much this year. Last Spring, students took part in PARCC testing. Illinois took part in the PARCC testing along with 11 other states. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a modern assessment that replaces previous state standardized tests. East Prairie 7th and 8th graders took the tests on computers in the school computer lab. The computers were not always functioning properly and caused some of the students to fall behind in the testing. Some students were forced to take their tests on different days and change their school schedules to fit in the testing. Making matters worse, the students were required to take the tests twice, once in March and again in May. Many of the students are not looking forward to the hassle of PARCC testing again this Spring. The students are hoping all the bugs are worked out with this second year of testing, and hoping for an easier, less stressful week of testing.
Sirens were going off and everyone was cheering for the athletes that were coming home from the 2015 Special Olympics. On May 1, 2015, the East Prairie 7th and 8th grade students got the opportunity to watch their classmates compete in the Special Olympics. The event took place at O'Brien Field at EIU. Other schools participated in the competition. The stadium roared with everyone's joyful screams. The Special Olympics consists of running and throwing events. All the athletes were excited and happy to be there. The events finished shortly after lunch. This was a really fun and exciting experience, not only for the competitors, but also for the students that were lucky to watch them compete.
They squealed and jumped! The 7th and 8th graders at East Prairie Middle School were awaiting the Special Olympics. There they would be cheering on their very own Luke, Connie,and Mikayla. They would also be cheering on Patrick and Bryant from the high school. The 5 athletes would compete in exciting events like the 100 m dash and discus! While they were competing they would be showered with cheers and praises from the East Prairie student section. This event was even more special because it was the first time it was possible for them to go as a school. This was a great event for the schools and Olympians. Eastern Illinois University hosting this event was a great SUCCESS!
On May 1,2014 the students 7th and 8th grade went to E.I.U .To cheer on the students that were participating in the. Olympics that was one of the first time that. The 7th and 8th grade went on that trip but the students that participating had been doing this for years. The students that weer shirring Sade it was hot. But it was worth it and had fun.And when they got bake to school they did a parade for the students that participated.
Today's game in the back of East Prairie Middle School went from screaming and yelling to scoring! Mrs. Pugh's 7th and 8th grade P.E. class playing a very intense game of frisbee while Mrs.Pugh was watching the girls play and keeping score and Morgan was sitting out. The girls playing were screaming and yelling for people to throw them the frisbee. Mrs.Pugh also was yelling at the girls that were not doing anything except standing there. Grace wouldn't throw the frisbee so she had her name being yelled a few times. There was tackling yelling and a great amount of scoring.
Last school year on May 1, 2015 something extraordinary happened. For the first time the 7th and 8th grade of East Prairie went to the Special Olympics as a school to cheer on our fellow classmates. It was located on O'Brien Field at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. Many other schools went and cheered on the Olympians on that hot day. It was very crowded with all the schools there. During the Special Olympics the students were allowed to go get snacks from the concessions and use the bathroom as needed. When the torch was being carried police officers ran/walked next to the people carrying the torch showing their love and support. When the Special Olympics finished everyone boarded their buses and went back to school. East Prairie and the high school waited outside waiting to cheer on their Olympians, Luke Connie, and Makayla. Our Olympians wore the biggest smile on their faces. It was truly a day full of fun and excitement.
last may was an exciting year for the 7th and 8th graders. They all went to EIU for the special olyimpics. They fall went to o'breins. To watch Connie,Luke,and Mikayla run the track. The students all screamed in excitement. When they got to the finish line. The next they ate lunch an then got to the action again. The next thing they did was watched a ball toss. They all had to toss 3 balls and see who gets the furthest. All the people who attended did a phenomal job in there own way.
May 1st 2015, Tuscolas 7th and 8th grade class, and some of the highschool did something worth writing about. They got on a bus early that school morning around 8:30 a.m. to go to the Special Olympics, to support their friends Luke, McKayla, Connie, Bryant, and Patrick.They left for Eastern Illinois University, in Charleston Illinois. They arrived there around 9:00 a.m. in the morning. They went in and sat on the bleachers. They watched and cheered for their not only their classmates, but their friends. They watched for about 2 hours, and then they went to eat lunch. But on the way they found out that two of the people throwing the "javelin" were their classmates, Bryant Price, and Patrick Weaver.So they got to go and watch them throw. Then affter lunch they went and watched, and supported their classmates for several more hours. It really is amazing that even on a hot, and sunny day like it was, they were still there to support their friends. Overall you could tell that they had a fun, and eventfull day. It's nice to know that we have people, and schools that do that for their friends.
The teachers knew something the students in East Prairie didn't. Even though it was the end of the school year, there was still much to be done. The students learned that this year they weren't going to do ISAT's this year. The students were glad about not doing that, until they learned that they were going to do something else called PARCC. PARCC testing could be on the computer or on paper. The tests were different, the tests wanted the students to explain their answers more, instead of just putting the answer down. There were three language units and two math units. The testing didn't always go as planned, the students hit a bump or two along the way. The problems had to deal with not enough computers. Getting on to the test was also a problem. The students would also get on and then the program would log them out. Talk about a lot of confusion and frustration at that time. Even with the problems, all the students were able to finish their tests.
Sixth hour was just getting over and that meant one thing for East Prairies Seventh hour girls P.E. class. The minute seventh hour started the girls rushed to the gym, got ready to do battle, and went outside. This meeting was a rivalry match between red and blue. The game took place behind East Prairie. The game was ultimate frisbee the roughest of all frisbee games. Our sources say that blue was by far the more talented team but lacked in effort. Red had a few talented players but used there smarts during this game.the word going around is that there was a frisbee hog on the red team. This game was chosen by choice of Mrs. Pugh. The favored team (blue) lost a tremendous game to the underdog (red) 4-3. This was Ryan Bartley reporting from East Prairie Middle School.
Last year the students of East Prairie got to do what most people will never get to do. The Eighth and seventh grade student got to go cheer on their fellow classmates on a special day for them. The Tucola Special Olympics Team competed proudly at EIU. The weather outside was scorching hot, the Sun was bright, sunny, and warm. It was very crowded as the students tried to get to their seats. The students got to eat their lunches outside on a bright sunny day. The Special Olympics Team got to ride on a separate bus on their way there and back. The competitors were running their hearts out the whole time. When the students returned to the school they waited outside very patiently and cheered wildly when the team returned. After that the students were still talking about that time.
Pass it to me! Pass it to me! As the girls yelled. There's a tough game of girls Ulitamate Frisbee behind the school of East Prairie Middle School at 1:20 p.m. The red team throws it off. The blue team then picks it up. The blue team makes an amazing pass and scores right off the bat. The red team gets it and throws it right out of bounds. The blue team gets it and throws it right back to the red team. Red then makes a pass and scores there first point. Blue gets it and makes a deep pass to one girl and she drops it. Red picks up the frisbee and try's the same thing as Blue. It was scored for there second point. Red then kicks off again and blue gets it. The blue team makes a perfect pass for a score. The score is now tied. Red grabs the frisbee and makes a risky pass and the girl hardly catches it. That girls sees someone open. She then throws it to her and she catches it for the game winning score! I guess all that yelling payed off.
During the date of May 1,2015. It he contestants were trying to go for hold. The school took the 7/8 grade to go watch Luke,Connie,and Mikayla. We were wanting them to win gold in most events like javelin or shot put. The 7/8 grade were dropped off at O'Brian field. The field was at EIU home of the Panthers. The stadium was huge. The first event was running events. Luke was in the 4 by 1 and Luke got third. The field events had Makayla. She was in javelin. She got first.
The year before i moved here, there was a game called Special Olympics.The Special Olympics is when students from East Prairie Middle School go to go O'Brien field at the Eastern Illinois University to support their fellow classmates that were competing. The fellow students from EP 7/8th graders Connie, Luke and Mickayla were in the race. It was the last day of school and they went to the field and they left at 9:00 a.m. It was the first time they went as a school to support their classmates. It was a fun, hot, new a adventure for all of them
In the afternoon of September 5th, at Tuscola east prairie. Logan Tabeling a student was in 7th hour composition. He ran an errand for the teacher, Mrs. Logan. He came back from the errand smiling. The whole class was asking him curiously what he was smiling about. He was telling the class a rumor. The rumor w The rent as really a lie which was we were getting out at 2:00pm. The glass got all excited, overjoyed with happiness in every way possible. The class was happy because it was 92f outside of school but feels like 200f inside the school. At 1:45 everyone started to pack up "in are class" but the teacher said get everything back out. They decided to give us gut dropping news, we are not getting out of school 2:00 we are getting out at 3:15. The class was super mad that they had to be in the scorching, sticky weather that the sun created. Thank you, Back to you Bob
On May 1st, 2015 EP and TCHS students went to O'Brian feild at EIU collage. Around eight o'clock all the 7th and 8th graders got on their buses and left. When they got there they all got unloaded at the back of the bleachers. They cheered and they proudly whatched the kids walk aroned the track. After that the last year winner of the 100 meter dash ran and lit the torch. After that the kids had a blast whatching the kids compete in diffrent sports and activites.They ate and had a fun there and they got to whatch the kids have fun too.
It was a day the students would never forget. On May 1, 2015 a very big group of 7th and 8th grade students from the small town of Tuscola came to cheer on their fellow students at O'Brien Field. When they pulled up all the volunteers were energized and they all had a smile on their faces. Even though the hot, sticky day everyone was happy. This was the first time Tuscola Middle School had gone to the Special Olympics. When all the students came off the bus all of them had a happy smile on their face. Many of the students dressed up, so the Olympic athletes could see them. The opening ceremony was very interesting. All the athletes lined up and were ready to walk in. They had four of the Special Olympic athletes deliver the torch. All the other athletes got introduced and walked around the track. The lady said Tuscola and all the students erupted. It was the greatest thing ever. The athletes got all excited and waved. The look on their face can't be described in words. Luke, Connie, Mikayla, and Bryant were very happy. All of the students who went should learn what this really means for these kids and learn a lesson from this.
Good afternoon. This is Julia Kerkhoff coming to you live from Eastern Illinois University in sunny Charleston, IL. I am here at the Special Olympics, here with the excited 7th and 8th graders from East Prairie Middle School and some high schoolers, all from Tuscola. On this beautiful, spring day, we will get to see special athletes do special things.
We have seen a bunch of these athletes try their hardest at high jump, long jump, softball toss, tennis ball toss, spear throw and more! The running events -- like the one and two mile relays -- are next.
The courage and determination of these Special Olympians is second to none. I have never seen anything like it! I have never seen a group of students more supportive of their athletes. These kids were as loud as a college cheer squad when one of their classmates is competing.
Tune in later tonight at 6pm for all the scores and details.
It was an accident waiting to happen. Although, the day could have ended much worse, it was a sad day for a little girl. A little for year old girl that lives on East Buckner street in Tuscola, IL, was playing outside one minute, then crying for help the next. She was running around and playing on the playground in her back yard. Then, the wooden step leading up to the top of the playground broke. The little girl fell down to the ground with the broken step laying next to her. She screamed for help, you could tell by the way she re-acted she was in a great deal of pain. Thankfully, she was not hurt too bad. The day ended with a swollen ankle and a bruised back.
7th and 8th grade students supported the Tuscola Special Olympics team by cheering for them, as they participated in sports for the first time at the Special Olympics! It was a hot and muggy day at O'Brien Field of Eastern Illinois University on a late day in May. O'Brien Field was very crowded; there were many teams participating from a lot of different schools that year for Special Olympics,which was taking place there. The Tuscola Special Olympics team was a GREAT add on to that years event. It was an exciting day as Mikayla, Luke, and Connie(the Tuscola Special Olympics Team) played in multiple sports events that they never got the chance to participate in. The amazing students of East Prairie, did a great job motivating the team. It was a new exciting adventure for everyone. The students, over the time of being there, truly knew what it meant to be an encouragement. It was like the sun giving off light to the moon. The whole day was very incredible. The people of East Prairie who attended the Special Olympics(participants or just cheering classmates) all knew they would never forget that magnificent event that changed the perspective of everyone there.
The 23rd special Olympics were held today. The stands are packed waiting for all the talented contestants. They start to introduce the contest and the crowed erupts but with the help of the 7th and 8th east prairie students. The students have come to support there classmates Luke, Conie,and makala whom all have outstanding talents. I would like to point out Luke reed he got first in the 100 meter dash 2nd in the 50 meter dash and first in ball throw! Congratulations to all the contestants who all did such an amazing jobs.

Last year 2015 at East Prairie Middle School the 7th and 8th grade students had to try Parrc testing instead of Isat testing. This time it was on the computers insteadt paper and pencil. The teachers had a lot of problems when they tried to set it up. Some of the kids couldn't get their computers amd the website and it was frusturating. There also was not computers and room in the labs. Some of the students had to go over to the highschool and use those computers. That is what happened last year with parrc testing.
It was Wednesday, September 9, 2015, the time was 3:30 p.m. at East Prairie Middle School. The girls’ basketball team was having practice. Coach Pugh and Couch Brewer usually let the girls shoot around before they do there stretches. After they do there stretches they went into posts and gardes and worked on game strategies. Next, they split up into 7th and 8th grade groups. The girls learned new plays. Then, they ran some of the m were down and backs but others were Z’s. Z’s are were you run from the base line to the free through line back to the base line to half court to base line to the free through line on the other side of the court to base line the other base line back to the start. They practice some more then break. Then practice ends.
