Volleyball: Thank You Fans!!!!!

From Melrose-Mindoro

From Greenwood


One thing about the fans at Immanuel, they sure show some amazing support for the volleyball team!!! They cheer appropriately, they are good sports, they don't boo the other team, they really cheer if a bench player comes into the game, they don't cheer for the other team's error unless the game is on the line, they really cheer if there's a really good play, they hold back if the other team is getting slaughtered, they silently oooo after a bad call without yelling out something stupid, they have great cheers that they make sure they don't overuse, etc., etc. Incredible, really!

Among all the schools that the team played at, Immanuel had by far and without a doubt the best and most supportive atmosphere for their team. This includes larger schools. Even the Melrose-Mindoro coach publicly commented on the great atmosphere at Immanuel after she lost a really tough, highly competitive match against us in five sets. She quoted to the reporter after the game, '"It was so intense - the noise in that gym. It was really kind of cool," Boone said. "It gave you the goosebumps for a high school game to be that loud."'

That says it all!!!

Thanks, so much, for making it a wonderful and memorable season by all your positive support!

We Love This Game

From the October edition of The Flash:

By Christina Hein

Anybody who knows me probably knows that I love volleyball, and this season is no exception. We've all won together, lost together, and made tons of memories. Now the end of the season is coming up, and we're all proud to look back at how far we've come.

We started the season excited and ready to have fun; we knew we needed to put in a lot of effort to be really, really good. We clicked right away. Even though we lost a couple rough games, we stick together as a team, which is the most important thing. We have wonderful coaches that help us get better, and we all love them.

And then there's you. The fans. You guys are fantastic. Our games just wouldn't be the same without you. We all thank you so much! It really means a lot to us that you guys are so dedicated.

Regionals are coming up, and we all want to go far. But however it ends, we'll still be a team. And we'll have great coaches and amazing fans right beside us! So thanks for your support, guys-WE LOVE YOU.
