As Coach Marshall would say, War Eagle Fever is certainly in the air as fall sports wind down and the Varsity Football Team heads to the playoffs. Last night, members of the Marist community gathered on the practice field for the annual Bonfire, an event highlighting fall sports accomplishments and building up spirit to support the Long Blue Line in the weeks to come.
To drum up support for activities across the Marist campus, Student Council has placed a special emphasis on building school spirit in addition to school pride this year. For the upcoming playoffs, a Spirit Banner covered in blue and gold handprints, fingerprints, and names is hanging in the cafeteria as a reminder of all the fans supporting the football team, cheerleaders, and marching band.
Whether it be High Five Friday to excite students before a great weekend, face paint and spirit tables at the football games, or the upcoming Wandering War Eagle Day, students have had more opportunities than ever to be involved and show their school spirit.
