We’ve Got Spirit How ’bout You?


Erika Kolseth, Staff Writer

When was the last time you went to a cross country meet or an orchestra concert?

If you said never, then where’s your school spirit?

There are more than 1,600 students and 104 extracurricular activities at Blue Valley.

School spirit is very important in order to motivate and keep activities alive.

Generally, 88% of students around BV haven’t been to any concerts or meets besides football games, basketball games and theatrical productions.

The other activities need support, too.

Some of the most underrated activities include bowling, golf, cross country, tennis, swim team, orchestra, softball, winter guard, wresting, dance team and choir.

I’m not saying that no one cares about these activities, but they just need more support. I get that some meets or concerts are far away or you have something else going on, but going to one event can’t hurt.

If you were apart of those teams than you would feel encouraged and good about yourself knowing that your friends are cheering you on. There are still people supporting these groups.

Parents, siblings and close friends are usually the ones to attend these activities. Members of Tiger Pride also do their best to show up to these events.

If you compare the number of people who show up to a football game than to a bowling tournament, the number dominates bowling.

There are so many activities that need our support because students deserve to know that their peers support them, and if you take time out of your day to watch a football game, you can come to any of these activities as well.

So the next time you hear about an upcoming softball game, why not go and support to cheer on your fellow peers?
