After reading Dan Kimber's column of Aug. 13 titled "Athletics can be 'touchy' subject,'" I can't help but wonder if he was at the last Hoover High School football game. The many in attendance would probably have a contrary opinion about his assertion that "school spirit, which often rallies around the football team, has all but disappeared from Hoover High School. " That last game of the year versus cross-town rival Glendale High ended in victory. The spirited celebrations after the game and the spirit on campus the following week were apparent to those paying attention.

Rosemont eighth graders reap the rewards of their winning school spirit as they spent Friday, June 15, eating hamburgers and hot dogs and watching a BMX bicycle program. Throughout the year the seventh and eighth graders competed in friendly but spirit competition to show their school spirit. Each class had their own t-shirts, which if they wore they received points. They competed in bobbing for apples, tug of war and even musical chairs. The seventh graders took an early lead in all competitions but in the end, with only minutes left of the last games, the eighth graders scored more points and won the year.

Last Friday, Rosemont Middle School students eagerly demonstrated their school spirit by cheering as loud as they could, stomping on red and white balloons and burrowing for candy hearts in pie tins full of whipped cream. It was all part of Competition for Enjoyment at Rosemont that allows seventh graders to compete against eighth graders to prove who has the best school spirit. The competition began around 2:30 p.m. with Associated Student Body members yelling their cheer out to their class and waiting to see how loud it could be repeated back to them.

The question of how many tiny marshmallows can stick onto a middle school students’ face when it is covered with peanut butter has finally been answered. Eighteen. Actually, that is how many marshmallows that stuck to eighth-grader Mallory Carcich after her fellow classmates smeared peanut butter all over her face and then threw marshmallows at her in a Spirit Day competition at Rosemont Middle School on Oct. 5. Spirit Days began last year as a way to build student camaraderie and school spirit.

During his years at Glendale High School in the 1960s, Pat Navolanic was a varsity athlete, stellar student and president of the Associated Student Body. Fittingly, Glendale High senior Henrietta Movsessian, who was named the winner of the 2008 Pat Navolanic Memorial Award on Friday, shares these accomplishments with the award’s namesake. Navolanic went to Stanford University after graduating from Glendale High in 1963. He died at the age of 20, while studying abroad in France.

There is a long-standing tradition at Hoover High School called BGD. The letters stand for Beat Glendale Day, and it is centered around the annual football game between the two schools. There was a time when the game was actually played in the Rose Bowl and tens of thousands of people came to see it. There are, in fact, few high school rivalries west of the Mississippi that are as old as Glendale-Hoover. I’m happy to report that the tradition is still alive and well at both schools as they look to secure bragging rights for the year ahead.
