Although New Haven has a limited number of sports offered, it doesn’t stop the students here from cheering on many different sports. A recent poll was sent out to NHHS about their favorite sports to watch. Some of the school favorites are listed below.
Sophomore Oliver Garren says he loves NASCAR in particular.
Sophomore Owen Borcherding reported golf being his favorite sport. He said that golf is “exciting and fun to watch. Also it’s a relaxing sport to play on the weekend.”
“Soccer, because everyone is screaming like 24/7,” sophomore Chloe Lueckenhoff stated.
Football is senior Bradley Glaser’s favorite sport, because he feels it is the most entertaining out of all the other sports.
Kamryn Poe, senior, said, “I like to watch baseball, because I think it is exciting and it is fun to watch.”
Senior Martin Lewis’s favorite sport is basketball, because it is his favorite to play.
Senior Alex Trentmann stated: “UFC is my favorite sport to watch because of how intense and brutal the matches can be sometimes.”
In addition to having a favorite sport, many students are devoted to particular teams as well. There are many teams for every sport; here are the favorite teams of NHHS.
Bradley Glaser reported that the LA Rams are his favorite. “I never stopped loving them,” Bradley added.
Junior Gavin Frick’s favorite team is the Minnesota Vikings.
Elsie McNabb, senior, stated that the Dallas Cowboys are her favorite, because she grew up watching them.
Kamryn Poe stated, “I really like the Chicago Cubs. I really think they have a great team and they all look like they are having fun on and off the field.”
Martin Lewis said, “I’m more of a college basketball fan, so I obviously cheer for the hometown team of Mizzou. But next year, when I attend the University of Arkansas, I’ll be the Razorbacks’ #1 fan.”
A lot of people follow certain teams for a particular player. Every player is different. Each player has different qualities and techniques. Together on a team, they can do great things.
Owen Borcherding said that Tiger Woods is his favorite golfer.
“Aaron Donald (defensive tackle for the LA Rams),” Bradley Glaser simply said. “He is better than everybody else.”
“Ezekiel Elliott, because he’s a really good running back,” Elsie McNabb stated.
“The most fun player to watch right now is Steph Curry. When he gets hot, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” Martin Lewis stated.
“I can't pick just one! I really like Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant. They are a dynamic duo on defense and offense. They 'put the ding in dingers'. Bryzzo all the way,” Kamryn Poe said.
There sure are a lot of sports lovers here at New Haven High. When the students aren’t cheering on the Shamrocks, they are making noise for many other teams. Best of luck to all the teams and players for a successful, uninjured season!
