Trojan Times

Lydia Popple

Lydia Popple is a sophomore at New Prague High School. She has been on the High School Girls Swim and Dive Team for four years and skated for the New Prague Figure Skating Club for six years. She also enjoys skiing, golfing and playing in the Wind Ensemble. When she is not at school or practice, she is most likely watching a stand-up comedy special or "Glee" on Netflix because she is seriously addicted. She decided to become a photographer and writer for The Trojan Times because she really enjoys spreading the word about all the fun and exciting activities that our community has to offer. (Also, it takes time away from her Glee problem.)
