West Side Story is proud to introduce Baylee Stroud and Marshall Smith as the most spirited students. They were voted on by their senior class. Both lead the school in Trojan Train, spirit section, and dress up themes.
Stroud’s favorite costume is probably the rock star games or the creepy carnival. She claims “We, as a student section, looked so good. “Her ideas for the games’ themes are mostly based on previous years and what we love. She said, “Sometimes [they are] based on the mascot or name of the school’s team we play.”
She has participated in Trojan Trains and has not missed one. Stroud says, “They’re so fun and get everyone hyped for the games. “She will continue school spirit in college. Games are so fun to cheer at, especially with a big student section or just friends. She was a captain of the spirit team and the teacher of the girls’street team.
Smith’s favorite costume was creepy carnival. His ideas for the games’ themes are that the members of street team and AOS vote on them as a group. He participated in Trojan trains, and he sent tweets about meeting times and places. He will continue school spirit in college at Maryville College where he has signed to play baseball. He was a captain of the spirit team for Street Team at West High.
