First rally is a success

Hawaiian theme kicked off the year’s first rally. The rally took place in the new gym on Sept. 7 in hopes of inspiring the student body and the football team for the game against the Fowler Redcats. Carefully planned, the rally also promoted the famous beach trip to Coast Union. The team behind the scenes planning the rallies this year: Pep commissioners Tim Haydock, ’02, and Lauren Taylor, ’03, and rally advisor Eunie McEntee.

“We have a great group of students,” rally advisor Eunie McEntee said. “Pep commissioners Tim Haydock and Lauren Taylor have really great ideas. It’s really exciting to work with such committed students. Tim and Lauren have really big servants hearts.”

Starting new this year every rally each class competes to win the rally. With the judging done by a panel of three random teachers. Classes win by competing in games and chants.

“The limbo was my favorite game to watch,” Jason Jesser, ’05, said. “I also enjoyed all of the other games. It feels really great to have class spirit.”

In the limbo Chelsea Myers, ’02, surprised everyone with her flexibility and took home a win for the seniors. Despite that fact the juniors still conquered the first rally with their huge amount of spirit and zeal.

“I’m really excited that people dressed up Hawaiian,” Taylor, said. “I was glad to see people getting involved by screaming and jumping up and down. We prepared for two weeks and I hope everyone thought it was awesome.”

Students like Josh Risch, ’03, began crowd surfing to support their team.

“It was my first rally here at Fresno Christian,” Amanda Pjerrou, ’02, said, “and I liked it a lot. It was actually the first time I had seen my classmates involved and enjoying themselves in the games.”

The games consisted of the traditional sock game in which eight football players (two from each class) hold on to socks and try to throw each other into a trash can, the limbo, and also a joke played on Anthony Pellouso, ’02, called the blind surf.

“It was a rally that was well developed and extraordinary,” said Tyler Weibe, ’04, said. “The spirit shown by the students was awesome in the games. I also enjoyed being announced on the football team in front of the whole school.”

The Varsity for the first time ever suits up over 30 players for Friday night games. Both the JV and the varsity football teams show a promising season ahead of them. Additionally student leaders planning the rallies this year claim that rallies will inspire both the student body and the sports teams.
