It’s just after 3 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon, and 11 girls from Holdeman Elementary School in Tempe are getting ready for their afternoon exercise inside the school gymnasium.
Standing underneath one of the baskets is Austin Moritz, a senior at Arizona State University and one of five students from Alaina Zanin's Applied Coaching Communication class who coach the girls.
Moritz, a senior majoring in communication, was an instructor in the Marines. Getting Marines to follow orders is easy. Having elementary school kids do the same is not quite so easy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s goal in his war in Ukraine is nothing less than eliminating the country, according to an expatriate Russian-American journalist who spoke at Arizona State University on Monday night.
“He’s not going to stop. I don’t expect the negotiations to come to anything,” said Masha Gessen, an author and staff writer for the New Yorker who covers Russia and Putin.
“The best-case scenario is some kind of temporary partition that Putin agrees to because they’ve run out of resources, but that will be time he takes to regroup and attack again.
The School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University will celebrate the 22nd annual John P. Frank Memorial Lecture with Masha Gessen as the featured speaker at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 11. During the lecture, Gessen will discuss “The State of Democracy and the Pursuit of Justice.”
