Life in the Rowdy Student Section

Best Practices for Supporting Your Bears Sports Teams

Bishop Blanchet’s fan base has had a fiery start to this year’s sports season. With the Bears football team coming up with a colossal win over Redmond, 42-20, with senior Sam Merriman and junior Calvin Hanson put on a show for the crowd, and the Bears student section came ready to cheer.

“This first game of the season was rowdy and exciting, and I can’t wait for more sporting events,” said senior Keenan Beers.  

Then, following up on that win this past Wednesday night, the Bears girl’s volleyball team took on Seattle Prep; even though we lost, it was a hard-fought game, and the student section brought their Friday night energy. 

As you attend sports games around Blanchet, the student section is essential to Blanchet’s life and spirit. Over the years, Blanchet’s student section life has always been showing up and being loud, and the legacy of that tradition hopes to continue. From when I was a freshman in high school to now as a senior, here are my five tips and tricks to the life of the student section. Since it is the start of the year, I hope all of you reading this will take in my five suggestions and show up to our Blanchet sports games!

Gio’s recommendations for Student Section Life:

    1. Energy– Energy is crucial in games because you need to have energy to be loud excited, and intrigued. 
    2. Sectioning– Sections throughout the student section area are crucial to be followed as said, the freshman class is in the back row, and then following that comes class after class until the seniors are at the bottom. This has been a rule since the first years at Blanchet, and it will always represent who we are as a school which it shows the level of experience that you have at Blanchet. 
    3. Positivity–  Being positive and nice is always a mandatory rule at these sporting events if you not going to root for your school in a positive way, then you will be asked to leave.
    4. Theme-  Dress accordingly to the theme so our student section looks nice and coordinated.
    5. Hydration- Come to the game hydrated and with food in your system, Food is also provided at the game, so at halftime, you can always get a snack.
