Jessica Olmo, a tough competitor in this year Josh Desforges challenge

The annual Joshua Desforges Fitness Challenge this Thursday has gotten a great amount of participation from both students and faculty here at LHS. One participant this year who is looking to be some very strong competition for her male opponents is Ms. Jessica Olmo of the science department.

“I’m doing the challenge for 2 reasons,” said Olmo. “To honor Josh and keep his memory alive at LHS and also to encourage my students to be active and both mentally and physically strong.”

Olmo trains five days a week doing cardio and lifting weights. She admits that she has done no special training for the fitness challenge itself, working out and being fit is just a part of her lifestyle. Based on the size of her biceps, it seems as though no special training was necessary for her.

Having had participated in the fitness challenge last year, Olmo has an idea of what to expect. “I’m excited nervous,” she said. “I just don’t want to let my students down!”

Alex Francisco, Sports Editor
Fresh off of a great summer spent by her pool or at the Cape every weekend, this sun-worshipper is back for one last year at LHS. Alex, Al, Franny, or any other nickname you can come up with may come off as a girly-girl based on her long brown hair or Hello Kitty obsession, but anyone who knows her will argue she’s just like another one of the guys. The only thing she enjoys more than watching ESPN is being on the beach with her cowboy hat, sunglasses, one of her thousands of bikinis, and her favorite Pandora playlist: Today’s Country Hits with John Mayer and Dave Matthews band variety (So relaxing!) You’ll catch her roaming the halls in a basketball jersey and her purple crocs, but as long as you don’t try to change the music playing in her car, Molly the Mazda, you won’t have any problems.
