    Overall Experience: My favorite experience was my junior year when at two seperate occasions we came together, all students and parents, and packed the bleachers at both a volleyball and basketball game against our biggest rivals and we had themes, neon at volleyball and hawk out at basketball, we all were super into it and it should the unity of the school.
