Fall sports start again

For athletes, the start of a new school year not only means homework and new classes but also after school practice and excitement filled gamedays. With the fall season starting for sports, fans and players alike will have lots to look forward to.


Football, one of the most notable high school sports, provides students with a guaranteed good time on Friday nights.  Our band, drumline, Silvies, and cheerleaders all play an important role in making football games the go-to place for school spirit. Sophomore, Matthew Shrake, enjoys playing football each year because it gives him motivation for the school year.


“Every year I look forward to football season,” Shrake said. “It allows me to take a break from my everyday life and focus on one of the things I love to do most.” 


Alongside football, volleyball also succeeds in pumping up the crowd. Last year, the Cy-Creek Varsity volleyball team made it to the second round of playoffs. This year, freshman Cami Stephens has made it her goal to work hard to make her coach proud.


“ It’s exciting when we put in enough work to the point of winning,” Stephens said. “It is so fulfilling to make my parents and coach proud.”


Cross country, another popular fall sport pushes athletes to their limits by long-distance running combined with unique trails. Junior, Ricky De La Riva, strives to improve himself through the sport.


“Running has expanded my area of comfort (or should I say tolerance of uncomfortableness),” De La Riva said. “In which I have grown mentally stronger.”


Fall sports provide students with a way to support their fellow students and show school pride. A combination of Friday night games and a salty snack makes for a guaranteed good time.
