Grizzly Bears Return Home!
November 23, 2022
Touchdowns, hard work, and grizzly bear spirit is on the horizon for the Bears of 2023. as they head onto the field in their glimmering green. It has been over a year since East Brunswick High School used their home field.
Along with our players, the bear den had the crowd roaring in their face paint and tutu’s. Senior boys spelled out ‘GO BEARS!’ across their chests, carrying school spirit on their shoulders.
Athletes disliked having to share fields during practice or games, constantly adapting to different playing environments. Unfortunately for the class of 2023 they “never got to experience a home game due to covid and later on the field was being completely redone because of flooding” stated Darya Popova. For instance, the football team had played on bumpy grass which was occasionally very muddy. These conditions affected times, teamwork, and skill.
On a brighter note, Darya also mentioned the surrealism of playing on the home field- especially now that she is a senior. Like a homefield, senior year has become something scarily taken for granted. However, the wait is over! East Brunswick is back and better than ever with a shiny, new field kicking off the new year with touchdowns and smiles all around.
