Braves Battle Broncs for Homecoming Win


BATTLING IT OUT: Braves and Broncs line up nose to nose. Many players had favorite moments from the intense homecoming game. Wyatt Crogg said his favorite part of the game was “when we where battling out between a 10 point lead and 3 point lead.”

Star Valley High School’s homecoming game saw the Braves face off against the undefeated Cody Broncs. Even though Star Valley lost the game 35 to 25, the scores did not reflect on the intensity and competition of the game.

The Braves scored first with a 3 point field goal but slowly started to fall behind. “After we had our discussion at half time, we came back and played a harder and better game,” said senior Wyatt Crogg.

The players agreed that they have things to work on, but felt excited to prove they could go toe to toe against a great team. “We showed that we can play with the best team in the state, and we can beat them,” said senior Brandon Beck.

  Just about every successful sports team has to have a super-fan section, and the Braves are no exception. Many students can attest that dressing up in the school colors to cheer on their team is enjoyable. Junior Cody Nelson, one such fan, enjoyed “being with my friends, and hyping up the game.” Superfans have as much fun as the players they are encouraging. Beck said that the intensity of the crowd was a big part of why they did so well.

Homecoming week was an exciting week for the entire Braves Nation, and the football game was a perfect way to wrap up it up. Whether on the field or in the stands, SVHS looks forward to a rematch against the Cody Broncs and hopefully the chance to take the win at the state championship.

SUPER-FANNING POWER: Superfans pack the stands as the Braves took on Cody for homecoming. Super-fanning was definitely a popular, fun part of the homecoming game. Brave Cadette sophomore Lynzee Hurd said, “It was fun to preform at homecoming, and the crowd was really great”.
