Eagle fans kick off the season with an abundance of spirit. Despite a rough start, the student section continues to battle to keep its image.

For years, Independence has maintained a legendary section that explodes with school spirit on game days. Andrew Hendry continues to guide all grades to take part in the blue, green and gold morale. Hendry states       ” You’ve got to keep chants going and people participating. If you don’t do anything, people will get bored because not everyone likes football. Doing chants and everything unites people to come together as one.”

Andrew Hendry leads the student section at the Summit game.

Another key role to the school’s energy would be the band. Practicing hard nearly everyday after school, they strive to rally up the stands and cheer on the football team. Working in unity, the cheerleaders interact with the stands by throwing footballs and chanting loud to motivate parents and students.

Band students cheer on the football players.

The spirit does not end there. The Commons is filled with: music, chants, jorts and conductors. Students of all grades come together to prepare for the game. The influence in the commons carries out into the student section later that night. “The best part about the week is looking forward to Friday,” Paul Dorsten says “the music and jumping around gets me hype for later that night.”

Seniors get rowdy cheering on the players.

Spirit is the glue to the community of the school. It conjoins all classes to support one team, one school. Chanting, “we are IHS” echos throughout the stands and holds to be true on game days.
