Who are they?

The superfans of Lakeville South are a group of students who bring enthusiasm and spirit to our athletic events. They are the ones that start the cheers, get everyone pumped up, and ultimately, create a fun and energetic atmosphere. In comparison to a regular fan, sr. Ryne Farley says, “It’s different because we get in early to football and I know more about the sports because we are more informed.” Sr. Mitchell Jacobson goes on to say, “You are always leading the cheers so there is a lot of attention on you and everyone is looking at you to have a crazy time.” He also says, “We get to set the themes for the student section, so the crazier the theme the better.” Ryne agrees with this and goes on to say, “You can never go over the top.”

Why do they do it?

The super fans go to around 90% of games and are always very spirited. If it takes up so much time and energy, why do they do it? Superfan sr. Eric Rousemiller says, “It’s great to see everyone supported, no matter what kind of sport it is. It’s a good time you get to hang out with all your friends and everyone appreciates it.” Jacobson also claims that “It is great to be right up there in the action.” Another bonus to being a superfan is that they get into all home sports for free. Both Rousemiller and Farley agree this is a pretty nice bonus, especially for football and hockey games.

What does it take to become one?

There is a recruiting process involved with becoming a superfan. Rousemiller says they are always looking those who are, “The loudest at events and show the most school spirit.” Another thing he points out is that you need to have a lot of free time to attend the sporting events. Farley says, “You definitely have to have a lot of school spirit and be energetic as well as dedicated to going to everything.” To be a superfan at Lakeville South means not only to be dedicated and involved in the school’s sporting events, but to be a leader in the community as well.
