Sectional Week

February 28, 2013

I can remember sectional week in years gone by. Schools did a lot of special things in those days. Pep sessions were a “must”, and some kind of skit was always performed. Both students and teachers got involved. Depending on who your opponent was determined the type of skit performed. If you played the Indians or Eagles, it was always easy to come up with some kind of skit. I understand today pep sessions are not ever held. Back in the 50′s the whole town sometimes got involved. I remember doing some kind of dance through the downtown streets with the players, cheerleaders, and fans all involved in a line dance snaking down George Street. I think they might still put some decorations up in the school, but that is about the extent of sectional doings. I am willing to bet in a lot of schools most of the students do not even know it is sectional week. Unless it is posted on some kind of electric medium, they would not even notice it. I am glad to say that Batesville and Greensburg students will be quite involved in the sectional proceedings this week–especially if they play each other! I know that school work is more important than a pep session, but what are a few minutes of fun to break up the monotony of a long school period?
