Sharyland and Pioneer have been going at it back and forth for some time now. Each student section filling up every seat at whatever game they attend. The students from either school have been supportive of their team and even go out of the way to make creative posters. Old  friends rally up against us at the Pioneer games, there is an obvious tension between the two schools. Friendships have been tossed aside as the rivalry grows. Even though Pioneer and  Sharyland were once a whole school last year, we can’t ignore the fact that they are competing against each other. Throughout the girls varsity volleyball game, Sharyland vs. Pioneer, the students were full of school spirit. There were tons of people on both sides supporting the teams, but from time to time there were some chants exchanged between the sections. The chants are just part of the game and shouldn’t be taken seriously, and as soon as the whistle blows they stop. The students from both schools are what keep the players going and its okay to have a “rivalry,” its what makes things fun and interesting. At the end of the day, even with the rivalry growing, both schools should remember we’re from the same district.
