Family fun and victory for Big Sky athletes
Celebrating a decade since inception, Big Sky School District (BSSD) had a vibrant Homecoming 2019.
Big Sky companies and student organizations showed-up and circled City Center twice on creative floats to show school and community spirit at the BSSD Homecoming Parade. Volleyball players performed a choreographed dance to “The Hustle” – to the delight of the crowd.
Kids like Elliot Graham could hardly contain their excitement. Elliot’s mother, Jenna, captured his joy in a photo and captioned it on Facebook: “May you wake up tomorrow as excited about the day as Elliot is about parades.”
A culmination of Big Sky School District (BSSD) sanctioned sports teams and non-sanctioned sports clubs joyfully participated in the parade: volleyball, football, Big Sky Futbol Club and Lone Peak Composite Team (LPCT).
John Flach, one of the LPCT coaches said it was truly a year of inclusion for student athletes.
Sarah Blechta, whose children play soccer with Big Sky Futbol Club and were on the club float in the parade said she feels like the parade has grown.
“I feel like there were lots more people there. They [the Booster Club members] do a great job with it,” she said.
It was busy, delightful chaos as the children and young adults disembarked the floats after the parade to meet-up with parents and made way to the park for the Pep Rally.
“Are you the newspaper person?” Mickey Shack, dressed as Santa Claus for the parade asked. “Sick! I want to be on the cover.”
The crowd cheered as Big Sky Futbol, junior varsity and varsity volleyball and varsity football teams were introduced.
Lady Big Horns Volleyball players were able to ride that wave of school spirit to victory when they dominated against the Sheridan Panthers.
