Hi, my name is Joseph Mariani, I am a senior, and this is my third year writing for The Spartan Speaks. I am excited to report on school events, especially clubs and sports, and make a few crosswords too. I like to play hockey, football, and golf, and I enjoy participating in debate and Quiz Bowl as well.
