The first set ended with a score of 25-22, a win for Webb. We saw some great rallies throughout the match, three of which went to Webb after aces from Hoyin Tsoi '19 and Bill King '19. We also saw a serving spree from Alex Xiao '21 and a point-winning dump from Willy Martinez '19. The next three sets were fought just as hard but unfortunately went to CVC with scores of 14-25, 19-25, and 23-25. Head Coach Stephen Caddy commented, "The boys played hard and came out on the wrong end of a tough fought match. As soon as it was over you could see a look of disappointment on their faces. That being said, they are ready for the rematch next week." The game ended with a Webb loss, 3-1. WSC volleyball rallies together again to play their next match against Saddleback Valley Christian on Thursday, April 26. —Natalya Bachoura '18

  • Honor and Moral Courage

    Christopher Michno
    Mention the word “honor” in a crowded room and you are likely to suffer quizzical glances followed by silence. Honor, to many, seems an awkward, unfashionable, even antiquated concept—something to contemplated in private or through the scrim of heroic fiction, like the blood feuds of the Capulets and Montagues, or the Grangerfords and Shepherdsons.
     
    Yet, Head of Schools Taylor Stockdale contends, there is something important to be gleaned from the discussion of honor, something that has been missing from our cultural climate, broadly, and in education for some time—a focus on moral clarity, of discerning, very simply, right from wrong. Stockdale insists such clarity is possible even though it doesn’t always come naturally. “You have to work at it,” but the benefits, he adds, is that moral clarity allows you to make good decisions.
