With the Yorba Linda versus Esperanza rivalry football game a success of the past, the last couple of weeks have had some of the most school spirited and pride-filled days the school year will see. The school was decked out from head to toe with school posters, announcements, and colors. There was an indescribable energy that flowed throughout the entire student body that even the fears of the wind and fire could not consume. Esperanza did not stand a chance against the school pride at YL, and this proved to be true when we not only won the football game, but also when we won the canned food drive by a landslide. YL put EHS to shame last Friday as we outperformed with dignity and class.

 

At the start of rivalry week, the Aztecs thought they came out with a bang, but in reality, the Mustangs were embarrassed for them when they saw that the Aztecs felt the need to bash on YL when really it was their school’s reputation and class they were destroying. On Monday, the Aztecs posted to YouTube a short video segment titled “Mustang Anonymous” which features transfer students who previously went to YL discussing how they are “recovering” from being Mustangs in the past. As this video was meant to jab at the Mustang spirit, Mustangs only used it to fuel their fire and boost their competitive enthusiasm to beat their not so classy rivals.

 

Just by looking at the schools’ banners, you knew who had the more positive school vibes between Yorba Linda and Esperanza. Even though the Santa Ana winds blew away most of the quad posters, YL’s dedicated ASB students were able to salvage the signs they could and make fun of the situation by adding new posters that related to the wind. While “YL>Wind,” YL is also greater than EHS because as our rivals focused all their attention on us by posting signs that read out, “Stable smells like manure” and red wording that stated, “I painted this with mustang blood,” Yorba Linda stayed true to home and built up our school’s dignity without having to bash on the Aztecs. Even as a freshman to YLHS, Siena Palicke(9) recognized the significant difference in school vibes between YLHS and EHS and was shocked to read “all the EHS signs that made us look a lot better and a lot classier.”  

 

As if the Aztecs didn’t already put all their attention on the Mustangs with their school posters, EHS sold gameday shirts that highlighted the power of the stable. EHS decided to print and sell shirts that called for the Aztecs to “disable the stable.” Unfortunately for them, these shirts and all the other unclassy things the Aztecs did to try to discourage the Mustangs’ schools spirit during rivalry week were useless that night considering the stable was out of control–louder and prouder than ever. Sports, cans, spirit–name it and the Mustangs will outperform.

    Jaylin! I loved reading your article. These four years of high school have probably flown past as you have undoubtedly dedicated yourself to excellence. I hope you are still seeking to walk with Christ each day and trusting Him for your future.

    Merry Christmas
