The first thing you hear when you walk into the gym is the school band, then the loud chatter of the students. Cheerleaders line up, dancing to the beat of the fight song. Sharky, the school mascot, runs around the Shark Tank, hyping up the crowd.

It’s the spring pep rally, on a Thursday during Spring Sprit Week. Students and staff are wearing blue and gold. Some just a little; others have blue and gold from head to toe, even painted on their faces.

“When you’re playing in band it’s fun,” freshman drummer Emma Forcier says. “If you mess up, no one notices.”

The Pep rally begins with Athletic Director Tyler Zebkar introducing the spring sports athletes, who run out and form a circle in the middle of the gym. The music blasts. The cheerleaders do their routine; flyers up into the air and back into a basket catch.

Students scream at the top of their lungs as student government representatives launch free T-shirts into the crowd.

Then come the games. Tossing hula-hoops over a partner’s head and shoulders. A human version of Hungry Hungry Hippos, in which contestants pull and push their partners around on skateboards as they try to shovel as many plastic balls as possible into a basket.

“It was challenging, fun and exciting,” teacher Brian Phoebus said.

Then the 3:30 bell rings, and the pep rally comes to an end.
