VWS Tennis
The Vivian Webb School went up against West Covina last Friday, winning all matches of the day. Singles player Emily Schoffman 19, Macy Huang '18 and Cindy Zhang '19 completed their matches by winning all sets of their games with scores 6-1 and 6-0. Doubles player Bella Kong '18 and Winona Dodds '19 followed along and won all their sets with scores 6-0 for all three sets. Team Emma Qin '19 and Sophia Li '19 too, won their matches by 6-1 for all two sets. The Vivian Webb School made a clean sweep of the team titles by a score of 18-0, aiming to defeat their final competitors before league finals. —Vivian Jia '18
 
VWS Volleyball
Vivian Webb’s varsity volleyball players struggled in their first game after October break in a non-league game against Garey High School. On Friday, October 13, the Gauls lost 0-3 with set scores of 17-25, 17-25, and 15-17. Although the score did not favor VWS, our players made many powerful hits against Garey’s strong players and had an effective defense team. “I think we did well on communication last Friday comparing to many other days, but because Garey was a decent team, it made sense for them to win,” said Sara Hagiwara, a sophomore and first-year varsity player. “Since our team has a tendency to go up and down, I think we started off rather strong but then things went a little bit rocky. Because we made mistakes and got mad at ourselves for it, it affects the whole team during the game, therefore we should learn to trust ourselves as well as our teammates more.” —Ivy Liu '19

  • Stanford University Takes Stand Against Low Admit-Rate Frenzy

    Yesterday Stanford University announced it would no long publicize its admit-rate percentages in an effort to discourage the growing national obsession over which colleges and universities have the lowest admit-rates in America.

    Stanford’s provost wrote, “When Stanford publicizes its admission numbers during the enrollment cycle, the main result we observe is stories that aim to identify which universities experience the most demand and have the lowest admit rates.”
