The gunman was later identified as Stephan Paddock of Mesquite Nevada. Using many fully automatic weapons, Paddock shot down at the festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel causing mass chaos and an end result of 489 injuries and 58 casualties before taking his own life shortly after before authorities got to him. He was 64 years of age.

West Clermont High School swim team is diving into its first-ever season starting in November when they get to take the plunge into the school’s brand new competition pool.
The swim team wants to get up to 50 people on the team this year, and that will include students down to 6th grade. There are no tryouts for the swim team, so everyone will make the team.
Swim team member Lily Wilfert said all you need to know is how to swim to make the team. Lily was on the Amelia swim team last year, so she has some experience. “I am very excited for the season and can’t wait to start a new chapter for West Clermont,” said Wilfert.
Tori Bell agrees. “I am very excited for the season to start up,” she said. Tori also added that she made great friends as a swimmer last year and can’t wait to make more this year. Her opinion is that the Wolves will “do great this year!”
There are two teams, one for varsity and one for junior Varsity (jv). The girls’ coach is Coach Bowling, a 7th grade teacher at West Clermont Middle School. She was a swimmer at a young age, so she has plenty of experience. The boys coach is Coach Mayne, and he is a choir teacher at the high school.
The Wolves first meet is November 21, but before that they will be working on getting into shape. Starting on October 23, the team will host three days of swim clinics (at a cost of $20 each) to help students work on stroke technique. The clinics start at 3:15 and will last until 4:30 at West Clermont High School. Continue reading Splashing Into Season

It was a sad weekend for both the West Clermont football team, and their fans. After losing Friday night to the Anderson Redskins, 34-42, the Junior Varsity team played Saturday morning and were not able to pull out a win either, losing just 30-48. West Clermont was tied for first place with Anderson and winning the game would’ve knocked the Redskins down to second place. The Wolves were down 27-6 at halftime, but fans never lost hope. “I thought we didn’t give our best in the first half and there needed to be adjustments. They came out at half like a new team and played much better overall. You could see the excitement in everyone when we made a comeback. We had their backs the entire game. We never gave up on our boys” states West Clermont fan, Jules Miller.
