One thing I love to do is go to Villa sporting events with my friends. Sometimes we will go to Wawa after school and then head to the sports arena to watch. For example, before Christmas break, my friend and I went to Villa’s first official swim meet! Villa has a brand new swim team, and my sister is one of the members. At their first meet at Nazareth Academy, in their first race, the relay team won! Last year, Villa started off their new swim program with four girls, and three of them went to states. This year, the team has about 15 girls on it, so it really has grown! I will definitely be following the swim team’s season this year.
For the winter sports season, you can also watch basketball games. There, you can even see the cheerleaders practice their routines for competitions. The parents have a snack bar if you are hungry for dinner. Overall, I think supporting your school is an important part of a true high school experience, and when I go to these sporting events, I’m happy to see other Villa girls there too.
