Playing sports can lessen stress and make you feel a little happier


How? The brain chemicals released during exercise improve a person's mood. Friends are another mood-lifter. And being on a team creates tight bonds between friends. It's good to know your teammates will support you - both on and off the field! And more importantly, you don't have to be good at sports to play and have fun at sports!

This week's edition of the Brentwood Press. Congrats again, students and local residents Paco and Ryan!
