A Tight Knit Community
Coming from a small town where there is a
lot of support from the community members is something that I was not expecting
with Lewiston. Being a bigger town then Leavenworth, I thought there would be
less community support. I was definitely wrong about that.
I went to the L-C girls’ first basketball game a few weeks back and surprisingly,
there were a lot of people there. Not only parents of the players but also a lot
of students from either the high school or from L-C. My roommate is on the
basketball team so I try and make it to every game. The girls just had a game in
Pullman against the Cougars (which by the way we only lost by 5!) and there were
a lot of L-C students and parents there, along with older community members.
With the guys’ basketball team, a lot of community members attend those as well.
They are a lot of fun to watch and they are intense games. I haven’t been to any
charity events but on campus the dorms were doing a canned food drive and
walking around and seeing how many people brought in canned foods to give to the
drive was a big thing too. The students here at L-C get very involved and it sets
a very good example for our school. It is a lot of fun to get involved and help
the school out.
Coming in a few nights out of the week to watch intramural basketball is a big
thing to do too. A lot of students go to watch and cheer to support friends.
I’ve even come across a couple of adults sitting in the stands and watching as
well. Those are a lot of fun to get involved in and cheer for your friends.
Now that basketball season is started, there are a lot more
things to do and get involved in, not only before and after the
game but at half times as well, having a half court shoot out to
win $5.00 to spend at Staples. There is even a chance to win a
free pizza if your section screams the loudest. It is fun to get
involved and makes school a lot more interesting. These are all
good chances to make a lot of the memories, especially when you
are always hanging out with your friends and cheering on the
school. A lot of crazy things can happen in 1 night full of
basketball and cheering! So, with this said, let the basketball
