New School Leads to Better School Spirit

Spirit Boys show off their moves during the Homecoming pep rally.

This year, Robinson’s pep rallies and football game stands have been more packed than ever.

Over the past year and a half, students spent all their time in portables, and many weren’t participating in school spirit events or sports games. Many students lacked the school spirit that Robinson needed. With construction at Robinson being completed, for the most part, more kids have been showing up for football games as well as other sports events and have been dressing up more for spirit weeks, football games, etc.

“We have a new field this year and I feel like the team is better this year than last year so it’s more fun and exciting to watch. The spirit themes are also a lot better than last year so that has made me want to go to more games this year and participate in themes,” Casey Keith (’25) said.

Ticket sales for home football games this year have skyrocketed with around 900 tickets being sold almost every game as opposed to previous years there were around 600 to 700 sold. The highest ticket sale for Robinson at home for a football game was the Plant game with about 1800 tickets sold.

“I think it was harder to have more spirit events like the panther killing and also to do various things like posters and advertise the school spirit more and I think we can do all that a lot better now with the new school. I also think that more kids are showing up to different sporting events like football games, even kids I haven’t seen in a long time,” said Nate Clement, Junior Class President of the Student Government Association (SGA) and Vice President of Knightmare – the school spirit club of Robinson.

With the help of David Brown, Robinson’s Principal, and the new school, there’s now much more room for spirit here at Robinson.

“Now that everyone is out of those cooped-up portable’s students have been more open to the idea of joining school spirit clubs and helping to make posters and cheering at any sporting games and that’s exactly what Robinson needs after COVID-19 happened and the reconstruction of the school for the past years,” Brown said.

Now that she has the chance, she's excited to jumpstart her journalism career for the Knight Writers. "I've been wanting to take journalism for so long, but I always had a bunch of classes that I needed to take so I wasn't getting put into the class, but I finally got it," Scott said. Scott is excited to write stories that express her opinions in newspaper and allow her to interact with people around the school by interviewing people for stories and gaining their input for events. "I prefer to interview just because I actually like interacting with people and I feel like it's a fun way to do journalism. I just like interacting with people and interviewing them and getting their opinion, " Scott said. Outside of newspaper, she participates in numerous school clubs such as Knightmare and Student Government Association (SGA.) She plans to rejoin Knightmare this year and is eager to begin with her first year as an SGA member. As Sofia enters her last years of high school, she plans to attend college or trade school to become an esthetician, keeping in line with her interest in beauty and makeup. "I think I'm going to move towards going into psychology when I major in college, maybe later I go to a trade school or become like an esthetician or something like that because that stuff has always interested me," Scott said.

Araya stearns, Senior Staff Writer
Araya Stearns is a senior at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. An essential part of Stearns is her love for sports. At Robinson, she plays both flag football and softball. She loves the flag team she's a part of, aiding her love of the sport overall. The same applies to softball, which Stearns has been involved in since her early years. "Softball, I've been playing since, like, the age of four, so meeting new people and having more friends due to softball is a really big thing for me," Stearns said. After her time at Robinson, Stearns plans to keep moving forward on the softball track, hoping to pursue the sport throughout college and strive for the pro-leagues. Wanting to stay active even after college, a career in physical therapy or training is in her sights. Besides sports, Stearns loves her share of country music. Artists like Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen are common in her everyday playlist. Like many right now, Stearns has been enjoying the new volume of "Stranger Things," eager for the new season to come out in her senior year. Dialing down on the intensity, her favorite movies are typically from Disney, considering that she's surrounded by younger siblings. She finds movies like "Luca" fun to watch by herself or with others. This year, Stearns wants to keep her focus on the sports section, mainly attending sports games and taking pictures for our galleries. She loves the atmosphere of any sports game, keeping her ambitious to improve her photography skills throughout her junior year. (Profile by Faith Rowland)
