An unfair sports hierarchy

By: Haley Shaffer [Vox Executive Editor]

The week of spirit week is an exciting week at Marion. Students dress up in crazy, fun outfits to display their school spirit. And all of this leads to the big football game on Friday and then the dance on Saturday night.

Although spirit week is supposed to be for every sport or activity that takes place that week, when spirit week is though of, it’s mostly thought of for football.

But why all this jubilation for a football game and not for a tennis meet? Why is the winter rally held at night, when it’s optional for students to come, and the fall rally is during a school day, so students have to come? Football and basketball are easily the most popular sport for students to follow.

Tennis, golf, bowling, and many more sports are sometimes forgotten and not given much attention. To an athlete, students supporting them can mean a lot and actually effect how they play a game.

When the football team has basically the whole school supporting them and another sport can’t even get ten students to come watch them, it makes other athletes feel lesser. While students supporting football isn’t a bad thing, students should try and make more of an effort to show support for other activities and sports.

Clearly, from how impressive REDnation has been, Marion students have a lot of love and support for their town and community and now they should try to expand it so more people could feel the love.
