Hi! I’m Lizzy Sorensen, and I am the News Editor for 42Fifty. I am a sophomore at OHS, and this is my first year in the journalism program. Some of my favorite things are Chick-Fil-A, traveling, Reese’s, playing guitar, the Chicago Cubs, barbecue chicken pizza, fuzzy socks, football Sundays, iced coffee, Grey’s Anatomy and dogs. If you ever need to reach me, chances are I’m at dance. I have been dancing since I was 4 and am on the halftime and competitive dance teams here at OHS, as well as a studio outside of school. I am also involved with some clubs: athletic leadership council and orchesis. I’m so excited to see what this year brings for 42Fifty!

Think the Warriors are ruining the NBA? Look closer.

Golden State in the finals. Text: Strength in Numbers

The Warriors are the most hated team in basketball, and it isn’t hard to see why. Night after night they blow teams away, already winning 12 games by 20 points or more at this point in the season. And I hate to break it to you, but that won’t be changing any time soon.
