     Hi, my name is Luci Cappello and I’m a junior at Foran High School. I’m a member of the cheerleading team in the fall and winter, and the lacrosse team in the spring. I’m a student coach for the Milford Eagles Pop Warner cheer team during the summer and fall. This is my first year of journalism, and I’m excited to try out this new experience.
