A new movement is sweeping through Spring Lake High School. Similar to last year’s school-wide Whole Child and Chalk Board events, the One Team, One Laker campaign is experiencing its debut in the 2017-2018 school year.

The movement is unique in the fact that it does not consist of a single event, but many separate ones, and is scheduled to last throughout the year.

The aim of One Team, One Laker is to bring more student fan-based support and awareness to school sports teams and programs in the arts, such as band or choir, whose events do not get as much recognition as things like football or basketball games.

The program began early this year when One Team, One Laker shirts went on sale in the school. Students and teachers can purchase a t-shirt for $5 and wear it to the chosen event of the week- whether it be a cross country meet, a volleyball game, or a band concert.

They would then get into the event for free, and automatically be entered into a drawing for a gift card giveaway for that week.

So far, over 600 shirts have been sold, and the goal is for every member of the student body and staff to have one.

As was the goal, student sections have now become something that do not solely represent the most popular sports at the school, but a fan-base that can be seen at all of the One Team, One Laker events, cheering and supporting the hard work of their fellow classmates.

“It felt great to have the support,” senior Rylan Peets said of the large student turnout for “The Huddle,” a Spring Lake marching band concert, when it was the One Team One, Laker event of the week. “It was exactly how I wanted my last Huddle to be,” added Peets.

The movement was started by high school principal, Mr. Gilchrist who said that, “Last year [he] felt that school spirit needed to be a focus.” One Team, One Laker also achieves the goal of bringing together the different classes. Gilchrist wanted the students to realize that, “We are all one school.”

The One Team, One Laker movement has already been a success with fall activities, totaling over 600 students in attendance at the various events.
