Should Santiago Advertise More Sports?

Are our sports teams being under-advertised by Santiago? Has our school stopped advertising games that they don’t think people will attend? At Santiago High School, there is a lack of advertising for sports games that aren’t football-related. It seems as if it would negatively affect a team’s morale, so with that in mind, I went around and interviewed many students about whether or not they would attend other sports games if they were advertised more.

Question: If you were more aware of the other sports games on campus, would you attend them?

Only 2 out of the ten people I interviewed were on the fence about their answer, while many others seemed to have already formed opinions. 

Anon: “Yeah, I mean only if a group of my friends went, but yeah.”

Ethan Becker (9): “Depends but probably.”

I found that a majority of people did see themselves going to the games, so long as their friends were able or willing to go, with many believing that if they had known in advance, they’d make the time to attend with their friends. The ones who think they wouldn’t go are often confused by the games themselves, instead wanting to spend their time doing something that they understand, which is entirely understandable. 

Angela Lopez (10): “I would probably go if I knew a lot of my friends wanted to go as well. I feel like many people don’t go because they are scared they won’t know anyone there, so if it were advertised, then I would hear my other friends were going, I’d go.”

Jeremy (11): “Yes, I think I would.”

Rylie Butler (11): “Mmm, probably yeah, because I feel like there are a lot of sports games that I just don’t know about, and I would go if I were around to go to them,  so if I knew farther in advance, then maybe I’d go more.”

Addison Kendall (10): “Yeah, I’d go, especially if there was a big crowd going or a group of my friends were going, then yeah. Also, if I had heard more about it, I feel more people would likely show up.”

Lucas Heintz: “No, I feel like people are aware of the games; I just feel like people don’t want to go to those games. People have a lot of extracurricular activities or just a lot of homework.”

Skylar (11): “No, I wouldn’t because I don’t understand other sports games, and it wouldn’t be fun without my friends.”

Katy Hyun (12): “Not really, it just doesn’t seem that interesting, like it’s just a sports game, you know? I feel like it’s just too boring, and I wouldn’t understand why people would go just for the game. I’d need more than the game to get me there.”

It seems that many people would appreciate or favor attending more games, but only if they are advertised more. Perhaps this is a message to our sports administration to start actively advertising more sports games on campus, as I’m sure both the teams and the students of Santiago would appreciate it.
