What May Lie Ahead for Lake Shore Sports


Every high school has sports, but it seems that Lake Shore High School is missing some that others offer.

Here are some Shorian suggestions.

Jania Robinson, senior and varsity volleyball player, says, “I feel like tennis would be cool, or like a majorette dance team.”

For those that don’t know, tennis isn’t normally offered in high school sports, only ranking around seventh and eighth across boys and girls nationwide. Dakota and Grosse Pointe North e are some local schools that offer this sport, and Lake Shore should be another one of them.

Majorette dancing involves mainly baton twirling and clean, crisp jazz technique with a marching band accompanying them and it is popular in the midwest and southern states.

Joseph Quinn, senior and cross country runner, said, “Tennis would be chill.”

So, it seems that students such as Quinn or Robinson around the school are interested in seeing some new sports like tennis here at Lake Shore.

High school sports are a big part of the high school experience and having a sport like tennis could bring a new avenue to Lake Shore students wanting to play sports. Along with sports, Shorians are asking for some new athletic clubs.

Patrick Kristoff, junior, said, “For sure corn hole would be a pretty cool thing to add on to Lake Shore.”

Kristoff mentions having corn hole added to Lake Shore and having some type of backyard sports would be something that everyone could enjoy. You could have some boards put up outside of the football stadium before games so that spectators could come tailgate and have some fun before the game.

Giana Fett, senior, says, “Having a powerlifting club that runs all school year would be cool, and useful for athletes to get stronger in their offseason.”

Powerlifting is pretty self explanatory, it is a sport where you lift heavy weights and the goal is to get you stronger so that you can lift heavier weights. This would be a great opportunity for athletes of all sorts so that they can do some type of convenient offseason training, instead of having to buy a membership at a gym, you could just lift weights before or after school.

It’s no secret that sports aren’t for everyone, but if Lake Shore had some fun athletic clubs like a corn hole team, powerlifting club, an ultimate frisbee team, or maybe even a flag football team then Lake Shore could get more students involved with the school. Lake Shore’s sports are just like any other school’s sports but students want other cool opportunities to express themselves and hopefully Lake Shore can provide that.
