All week people around school you could see freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors all decked out in jerseys, hawaiian shirts, matching outfits, throwback outfits, and lots of red white and blue showing pride for all the success McMahons team have recently been sharing.
McMahon’s teams were full of excitement and pride all throughout the week because for the most part every team won majority of their home games. Field Hockey beat Trumbull 2-0, Girls Soccer beat Norwalk high 4-0 and tied 1-1 with Wilton, Boys Soccer beat St. Joes and Wilton 4-1, Volleyball beat Norwalk High 3-1 and almost beat St. Joes 2-3, and then Football beat Central 41-0 ending in a forfeit.
Senior Field Hockey player Lexi said that “I feel like us having more spirit during the week brought the whole team together.” McMahon needed this win to qualify for states and getting made it so much sweeter for them because it was on their turf. Making states was awesome for those girls because they made history again and they made themselves proud and their coach.
Volleyball hasn’t the best record this season, but they played their hearts out against Norwalk High last week because the traditional trophy has been at McMahon for 4 years before this one. The girls played really hard against St. Joes because there was still hope for states then and they wanted it, it reflected in their playing and the way they communicated on the court.
According to Senior Volleyball player Michelle Menard “It made me feel more in tuned to my school and created more of a connection between me and my teammates and my school.” Michelle gives credit to spirit week for a little bit of the chemistry that occurred during the volleyball games last week because seeing everyone dressed up and all the fun it brought made everything seem a little lighter.
Both Girls soccer and Boys soccer have been on an amazing roll, Girls soccer has qualified for States and Fciacs this year and Boys soccer has qualified for Fciacs and States this year and to celebrate all the boys are dying their hair blonde, and the girls team is trying to get a fan bus for fciacs.
Senior varsity player Jorge Garcia stated “Playing home games was more enjoyable because more people came to the games and it was just overall more enjoyable.” He also mentioned that since more people came to the game the team was a little bit more eager to win because they had actual support in the stands.
Last but not least Football took a win against Central completing Homecoming and Spirit week with a bang. Senior Malik Goethe commented saying “Winning felt good because it felt like for once we really had an impact on the school.” He thinks that their hard work paid off and it was nice to win homecoming his last year on the team.
