Hey Everyone,

This weekend we had our Homecoming events. It started with our Hoedown dance on Friday night. This event was a lot of fun. There were animals, music, and lots of friends! Saturday had the main events though. This day held the varsity football game, women’s soccer game, and the men’s soccer game versus Calvin.

Varsity football was a thrilling game, I had the privilege of working the football game with the Athletic Training program on the sidelines. The stands were full of fans. Hope made a great comeback to win it and seal the deal in overtime with a touchdown, followed by an interception.

At the same time Hope Women’s soccer was pulling out the win as well. They won with ease, with a score of 4-0.

Sadly our Men’s Soccer team had a rough loss to Calvin saturday night, losing 0-2.

Overall this weekend was filled with great events and awesome athletics. Hope prides itself on top notch athletics. This makes watching our sports teams very exciting and entertaining. It’s a real thrill for everyone who participates and comes out to support. Getting the opportunity to stand on the sideline helping during many of the athletics is a real opportunity and privilege. It allows me to get an inside look at how the athletics are treated by the coaches and by the players themselves. The coaches not only care about the players very much, but the players care for each other and have a drive and passion to win and do it with the utmost character to represent the school well.

Thanks for listening!
