Students at Stevens Point Area Senior High gathered for an early morning homecoming pep rally with Newsline 9.
The band and cheerleaders got the students excited for Friday night's big homecoming game against Wisconsin Rapids.
SPASH takes on Wisconsin Rapids looking to win the game and take home area pride and the River Jug.
SPASH and Wisconsin Rapids both have key players – Joey Hauser and Isaiah Westfall respectively. Hauser and Westfall are tied for the top of the VFA South.
Both teams are ranked in the Newsline 9 Power 9 and have chances to win the conference.
SPASH leads the conference with more than 80 percent of their points coming in the first two quarters.
That works well for the Red Raiders who have scored the most second half points in the VFA South.
Newsline 9 will have more on the Game of the Week starting at 5. April Boblin will be live with a game recap on Sports Express.
