Shamrock School Spirit Is A Tradition Like None Other

By Kyle Quick
- After losing in Friday’s third place game, as the players began walking off the court the MIzzou Arena went completely silent when New Haven’s Cheerleaders and student body began singing their school song.

At that very moment I realized that the 11 players had a greater impact on their fellow students and fans than they could’ve ever imagined, a even greater impact than winning a state championship.

I asked a member from MSHSAA, who has been with them for decades, if he had ever seen anything like that.  He smiled and said, “No… that was a special thing to see.”
