School briefs - Glen Allen High School

After a second successful year, the Glen Allen Silent Night basketball game has been solidified as a tradition that will continue for years to come. During the Silent Night game the crowd is completely silent until the team scores its tenth basket – then the crowd erupts.

“It’s the No. 1 [tradition] without a doubt,” said junior Ethan Steele, ranking it above Mr. Glen Allen, Senior Boys Dance, neon night and school plays among other things.

This year juniors Steele, Connor Jennings and Jason Woodson added new chants and dances to last year’s tradition of costumes, beach balls and “I believe” chants. The three tweeted a video called “Glen Allen High School’s Guide to Silent Night” to followers of the Jaguar Student twitter account to teach the new chants and a half time dance called Interlude.

“The Silent Night Game was one of the top moments of the year. It was pivotal for Glen Allen’s growth and development,” Connor said.

Jennings continued his popular ‘’I believe that we will win” chant that often makes an appearance at pep rallies and home sporting events.

Another pivotal Silent Night event that also began last year was when senior Max Stockton dressed as Moses and pretended to ‘part the sea’ while the student section split in half and allowed him to walk through the middle of the bleachers.

In this years game against Lee-Davis, Ethan said the crowd was anxiously anticipating the tenth point to drop.

“When it hit, the crowd went crazy,” Ethan said.

The costumes have become just as important as the silence before the tenth point. “Some people went as Bane, a referee, Santa Claus, penguins, a Viking; it was crazy,” Steele said.
