Keep the Spirit, Bearcats

The marching of feet on the sidewalk was  heard through the streets of Burlingame as the Pep and Marching band marched towards BHS in the morning. A man in a car who drives by honks his horn in excitement as he sees the long line of SMHS students marching. As the band marches onto Burlingame territory, the color guard gracefully twirls and dance along the road. As bystanders look in awe at the band, the sounds of music is heard throughout the neighborhood of Burlingame. I thought that the Bearcats would be triumphant in winning the game, as the spirit the day before in Friday’s Rally was bursting. The beginning of the game started off with the National Anthem sung by the Panther’s chorus. After sitting down, the pep band started pumping up the crowd of Bearcat’s by playing the Fight Song.

In the first quarter, we pull the lead with a 7 point head-start! On the attack, the Panthers tie with us and also get 7 points. At the fourth quarter, the score was 42 to 7 between the Panthers and the Bearcats. Although the score silenced the crowd of Bearcats, we regained our spirit in the Halftime show. The Cheerleader’s and Dance team danced in their routines with absolute precision and ferocity. Marching Band showed the Panther’s who is the boss in “Thriller” as they performed blasting music. Despite the disappointing outcome of the game, “the halftime show was pretty good”, as told by Landon Finn who is in Marching Band. Duanqing Pei, a parent, says that  “the main attraction was definitely the music that was played throughout the game.”

Overall, our school’s spirit was in the crowds that roared at the beginning lead that the varsity pulled through with. It was there when the musicians in the pep band played the “Fight Song” as we cheered on our team. Although the Little Big Game was a loss for us this year, our spirit will always be there for next year’s Little Big Game.
