Lane Boys Soccer won their first regional title since 2016 against the Evanston Wildkits this past weekend. This victory was redemption for last year when Lane lost via penalties to Evanston in the regional championship game. No. 8 seed Lane entered as the underdog on Saturday to No. 2 seed Evanston, but an early goal would end up being all Lane needed as the Champions rolled to a 2-0 win. Editor-In-Chief Alex Burstein has more on Lane's victory.

Oct. 15 brought about the end of Hispanic Heritage month, and this year things looked a little different at Lane. Led by Culture and Climate Director Gabriela Escobar, Lane attempted to do more to celebrate and represent the culture of Lane’s Hispanic students. Managing Editor Ruby Thompson has more on the increased effort to represent cultures at Lane and in turn create a better environment for students, starting with Hispanic Heritage Month.

“The timeline of 'Blonde' is largely based on the man that Monroe was involved with at that time, which is arguably not very interesting. Basically, the entire film is from the perspective of men, and we barely see past the sexualized image of her. It also eroticized the concept of ‘daddy issues’ specifically through Monroe’s relationships, which only further perpetuated her ‘promiscuity,’” writes A&E editor Nina Figurelli in her review of the new movie “Blonde,” a film based roughly on Marilyn Monroe’s life.
