New Haven High School has made tremendous strides in athletics this 2018-2019 school year. Many new students have come to the school, bumping up the student body and expanding our classes. This growth has caused our school to become a Class 2 District school in athletics. This is our first year being Class 2; therefore, athletes and coaches were asked at NHHS how they felt about becoming Class 2.
Many athletes have responded to how they feel becoming Class 2 will affect them when they compete.
“There will always be someone better than you, so having more people to push you, the better you'll want to do and push yourself to keep going,” said senior Martin Lewis.
Many students suggested that they weren’t worried about moving up in class, while others said it had no effect on them at all.
A few athletes feel it will provide a challenge for them.
“We will step up our game and do our best to the fullest max,” stated one athlete.
One NHHS athlete said, “I am nervous about moving up to Class 2, but I think we will still be able to compete and move up through Class 2 schools as the sport seasons continue.”
Another agreed, saying, “I think it will be harder to compete, but I think we can do it.”
Overall, it seems the NHHS coaches do not feel like the change will influence the success of the teams.
