(COVINGTON, La) — From helping out the Covington community with weekly service, to playing Quidditch after school with fellow classmates, there is a club at St. Paul’s for everyone.
“There are clubs all around St. Paul’s,” said sophomore Kelsey Whittemore. “If you don’t think there is a club here for you, you’re not looking hard enough. That is what makes St. Paul’s a great school.”
There are nearly 50 activities, athletics, and organizations total at SPS. Activities around campus are ongoing and never seem to stop. Joining a club can change the whole experience of being a part of St. Paul’s.
“Being in a club is awesome because you are surrounded by your friends constantly,” said sophomore Rhyne Sepcich. “Joining the Comic Book club changed my experience of being at St. Paul’s.”
Some students may be into comics, other students may be into to fun-filled games just to pass the time, such as ping pong.
“I’ve been a member of the Ping Pong club since the day it was made,” said sophomore Kent Shiell. “It is a very fun extra curricular activity to do after school, and everyone should join. As a tennis player, it is always more fun when you win a competitive game. That is what makes ping pong so fun for me.”
Other highly competitive club sports around SPS include the Bowling Wolves, which recently became an LHSAA sport.
“I joined the Kegler Wolves two years ago,” said sophomore Jackson Cretin. “When I first came to St. Paul’s, I didn’t know if there was going to be a sport for me to play. Luckily, I found the Bowling Wolves.
For students that are looking to get outside more, relax, have fun, but not get too worked up, the Golfing Wolves is always an option.
“I first started golfing about two years ago, and I joined the Golfing Wolves this year,” said sophomore Blake Vallee. “If anyone is looking for something to do after school, they should try golf because it is fun and easy to meet new people.”
There are a number of clubs that involve creativity, for example: Art Club, Beowolves Writer’s Club, Comic Book Club, Graphic Design Club, and the Guerrilla Wolves Video Club, just to name a few.
“Guerrilla Wolves is a great club because you meet a lot of new people who are interested in the same things as you,” said sophomore John Meyers. “It is also fun being able to make weekly news shows for the world to see.”
