Eagles prepare to take on Kings Christian Crusaders
As summer is coming to a close and the fall season rolling around it means football season is back. Home football games allow for students to bond while supporting their peers in the field.
This season, the Eagles play three home games during their nine week season. The Eagles compete at home this week, after traveling to away games for the last three weeks. In preparation for the first home game, student leadership encourages fans to wear neon in support of the game’s theme, “Neon Night”.
Cheerleader Ashley Sciacqua, ‘22, looks forward to cheering during the game.
“I missed it a lot, now that I’m in high school it’ll be a lot more fun,” Sciacqua said. “Being a cheerleader the games are a lot more fun but it can be a bit overwhelming at times, there’s lots of pressure to lead the chants for the crowd, get them into the game and encourage the boys. I’m expecting the football team to give their best efforts and hopefully give all their glory to God because whatever happens it’s through him.”
“I’m excited for Friday’s game, we’ve been on the road for the past three weeks, I know kings has some good athletes so it should be a good game. The atmosphere is always great the crowd is always into the game and that really helps us on the field, we’ll be giving it our all out on the field we’ve been practicing hard all week.”
Leadership student, Annabelle Messer, ‘20, shares how the theme came about.
“The junior class came to the conclusion of having a neon night,” Messer said. “There was some other ideas, someone said camo another said a black out or a white out and also a pink out but we’ll save that for something else. I’m super excited for this Friday to see everyone dressed up in neon. It’s going to be really fun.”
The Eagles take on the Kings Christian Crusaders, Sept. 14. Be sure to wear neon and support your Eagles! Tickets to the game cost $5 for students with ID and seniors (65+).
