Pack Attack!

Spirit squad energizes South High sports and activities

Gathered in the walls of South High School, a new club is making its way to the top.

Charlotte Gregor, an 11th grade student at South High, has claimed to love going to sporting events and loves participating in spirt days, but she has noticed a lack in participation from our school.

“When I noticed other schools such as Creighton University had spirit squads for this exact reason, I knew what I had to do,” Gregor explained. Gregor continued to explain that with the help of Kyana Rios, a senior here at South, who helps create posts using her graphic designer skills; Freda Mia Moore, also a senior here at South, who helps with the game schedule and themes; and the sponsor teacher Ellen Augustine, a social studies teacher here at South, she was able to make this club possible.

“Pack Attack is a pep club designed to promote school spirit and encourage students to be more involved at South High,” Augustine stated.

When I sat down with Augustine, she told me, confidently, that Gregor inspired her to sponsor Pack Attack.

“I asked Augustine to sponsor it because I knew she had tons of Packer spirit at all the games,” Gregor said. Augustine mentioned to me that she went to school at South as a kid and was a cheerleader. Along with that, she mentioned that she was the cheer coach for eight years but had to give it up to be there for her family. Which makes her seem like the best sponsor teacher for this club.

Alexandra Rios, a 10th grader here at South, claimed that this club doesn’t have any long meetings and you don’t even have to stay after school.

“This club has a purpose and doesn’t interfere with my personal or school life,” Rios explained.

Briana Galindo, an 11th grader at South, shared that you are not required to attend everything, only the events you want to go to.

“I forget about this club sometimes, but when I do remember, it’s easy and a good way to make friends while being supportive,” Galindo shared.

Gregor shared with me that while leading this club she also has a bunch of other sports and clubs she’s in.

“I participate in cross country, track, and swimming. One of the clubs I’m in is the NSAA. This club is another reason I started Pack Attack,” Gregor explained to me.

While talking to Gregor she also mentioned that a lot of the Pack Attack members are also in the club. Augustine also has claimed that this club doesn’t interfere with her life.

“I’m happy more students are involved,” Augustine exclaimed.

“Pack Attack members show school spirit by coming to sports games as well as other school events,” Gregor told me. She also explained that Pack Attack dresses up in the designated theme for each sporting event and they also learn cheers and make posters.

“This club exposes students to different opportunities to support each other at South,” Augustine pointed out.

“South is a major part of my life,” Augustine expressed.

Pack Attack is welcoming to anyone and everyone. This club has something for everyone!
