RooPride permeates through the air when it comes to our school down in Texas that we call the Blue and the White. Senses of unity and honor flow within the students and faculty. With two games played so far, more than enough memories have already been made.


“It’s so overwhelming and amazing to me how much RooPride our school has,” senior, Bianca Peck said in relation to the true honor of being on the sideline and a part of Roo Crew.

Roo Crew is a senior privilege, and many have anticipated their participation since their freshman year.  It can be an emotional time full of excitement!

“I wasn’t really sad as much as pumped up for this year” she goes on to saying that “It hit me that this was it, I took a minute to soak it all in then I just had so much fun and let it all go”, said Peck.

On the other hand, sophomore Blue Belle lieutenant Jenna Pinder, anxiously prepared to lead her squad for the first time! “I was very nervous leading my squad into the stands because I was afraid I was going to do something wrong” Pinder also adds “I cannot express how honored I am to lead such a hard working and dedicated group of girls who all share the same passion”.

“Even though it can be nerve-racking at times, I know if I have the confidence to succeed, everything turns out okay”, Pinder said.

Peck also explained the meaning of ‘3rd quarter’ to her RooCrew heart. “Omg yes 3rd quarter is so much fun we always get together and let our pride for the boys show as we dance and cheer with the drumline”, what a great tradition!

Additionally, our 3rd quarter spotlight is on no other than senior, Zack Watson, who is a part of the drumline in our Fighting Roo Band.

Watson said that it’s “always the highlight of [his] week. All these people coming together during the third quarter really makes [him] proud to be apart of this great community”.  

The trend of pride throughout each organization truly exemplifies this school. Hope to see you this Friday, Roo Nation!
“I can’t wait to see what the rest of this season has in store for us because I know what energy we have shown so far isn’t even close to what we have inside of us”, Peck said.
