Exeter/Andover Games

Exeter/Andover Games, aka E/A happens once a term. It is the day when all of the sports teams play Andover, Exeter’s rival. Exeter and Andover have the longest running sports rivalry of any high school. The sport that began it was football. Fall E/A is considered the most important because of the football game.

This past weekend was Spring E/A. I am on the track team and both the girl’s and boy’s team beat Andover for the third time this season. We had a tri-meet against Andover and St. Paul’s at the beginning of the season, and recently, the team just won the New England (Interscols).

The games are well attended and they’re a great example of school spirit. Before each E/A there is a pep rally. On the game day, all of the students show support by wearing red and yelling the cheers taught to us at pep rally by the Red Bandits (you can see my favorite cheer in my info). Here are some photos from the fall. My camera has a special setting where only one color can show up. You can really see how much red there is in the stands.
