Football, soccer, volleyball, and golf are some of the sports that GCCC have in season. The games are open to all students, faculty and staff; students are able to attend any home game at no cost with their student ID, faculty and staff can also obtain an all sporting event pass to attend the games. With these benefits one might think everyone should attend the games and supporting our team, but home games are often visited by a small crowd.
“I feel like the games are very boring and not many people come, especially to the soccer games,” Christian Garcia, Lakin, Kan., said.
He also said that the football games are fun to attend even though we lost; he also said that he feels like the fans cheer loudly.
“The spectators in the game are just chilling and not into the game, the atmosphere is like any other game but not very exiting,” Moises Rodriguez, Garden City and yell leader, said. “I feel like I need to go up to the fans and cheer them on to support our team.”
Dawnnel Francis, math instructor, said that she saw the students were sitting down and not very interested in the game. “I tried to get the students excited about the game, but they just looked at me like I was crazy,” she said.
Some students make efforts to try to get students more involved in the athletic events.
“I think for the next game I would probably make posters and be more cheerful and get the fans excited,” Jorge Salamanca, Holcomb, Kan., said.
Lucia Villegas, Garden City, said that she would try to make people do the wave and cheer very loud for the team, on the next game she attends.
Moises Mora, student government association president, said that he expects to have a great outcome for homecoming. “We try to get everyone pumped for the game the next day,” he said.
The homecoming bon fire is going to be on Sept. 28 at 8:30pm, at the west end of the Dennis Perryman Athletic Complex parking lot.
The homecoming game will take place at the Memorial stadium on Sept. 29 and the kick off at 7p.m.
