Did you experience any school rivalry when you were in high school?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 20, 2006
“There was more rivalry in academics than in sports. It was more about which school was more prestigious and which students would get into a better college.”
“No. I wasn’t very involved in sports, though. Perhaps there was a rivalry and I didn’t know about it.”
“I grew up in Iola and we had a big sports rivalry with Chanute and Humboldt. It seemed like you couldn’t walk through either town without someone trying to pick a fight, especially if you were wearing a jersey.”
“No. I grew up in Westfield, Mass., and everything was really very peaceful.”
