Electric is a term we often throw around. "The stadium was electric last night." "When we met, there was a real spark." Too often this term becomes hyperbole. That said, last Friday night in the Alumni Gym the hair was literally standing up on the back of my neck. As I watched our varsity boys basketball team hit the floor with "fire in their bellies" and our dance team "crush it" at halftime, I was once again reminded of how sports can energize not only the athletes but also a standing room only crowd in the stands. Friday's Hoops Night was a perfect example of teamwork, hustle, resiliency, and, of course, Tiger Pride. I am so proud of all our winter teams, and I can't wait to start cheering again in the spring!
Enjoy this short video, and hopefully you too will feel the energy!
