Titan’s sports action this Friday and Saturday
Last year, the Crested Butte Community School embraced the time-honored tradition of homecoming. The week of events played out with more fans showing up for the homecoming soccer game against Telluride than has ever assembled for a high school sporting event.
This year, CBCS hopes to do the same as Spirit Week kicked off on Monday, September 15 and ramps up all week for the soccer and volleyball homecoming games on Friday and Saturday, September 19-20.
All week the kids were encouraged to show their spirit in a variety of ways, with themed dress-up days and a volleyball match with make your own sundaes and face painting on Tuesday.
On Friday, September 19, Spirit Week comes to a head. There will be a pep rally at high school lunch to recognize the cross-country, mountain biking, soccer and volleyball teams. The Titans soccer team will host the Telluride Miners at Rainbow Field at 4 p.m. and families are encouraged to join in the bike parade over to Rainbow after school. Wear your Titan colors and come enjoy!
Once at the field, the community school staff will fire up the grills for a BBQ. $5 gets you a plate of food and a drink to enjoy while watching the soccer game.
Homecoming week then comes to a close on Saturday, September 20 as the Titans volleyball team faces Antonito on mighty Mt. Olympus at 11 a.m., while the soccer team takes on Pagosa Springs at 11 a.m. at Rainbow Field.
Both the soccer and volleyball teams have their hands full with tough opponents this weekend. A packed house could be just what they need to push them on to victory.
