By Maggie Kieser, Current Staff

Although the East vs. West homecoming game is still one day away, East football can already claim dominance in one category: injuries.

West has Pep!

By: Alyssa Rohleder

Pep rallies are an important part of Homecoming Week, and here is the scoop on West’s Pep Rally!  This special event includes the West student body and staff as they come together before the West v. East Varsity Homecoming game.  During the assembly, there are activities that include: tug of war chants, to see which grade is loudest, introductions of homecoming court as well as the football team’s dance created by the dance team.  This event is usually a fan favorite.  The staff make important announcements such as the new Compass reminders (our positive behavior rewards system).

During the tug of war, the competition came down to teachers v. Juniors.  After an exciting match, the Juniors defeated the staff.  Once again, the Seniors proved to have the most spirit and loudest chanting.  They were rewarded with the West Spirit Stick by the Spartan mascot.  The football dances were a big hit among everyone.  These teams were the Freshmen, Junior Varsity, and Varsity football teams.  After the Girls’ Dance Team showed them up, with an amazing performance, everyone left the field house in excitement for the parade, which was followed by the football game and dance.
