Screamin’ Scots returning for upcoming football season

The Screamin’ Scots show their pride for Carlmont by cheering for their football team.

Hail to Thee, Oh, Carlmont High!

Although the Carlmont-Hymn is monotonously slurred at the back-to-school rules presentation, it is chanted with spirit and pride by Carlmont’s very own Screamin’ Scots.

Sceamin’ Scots is a group of students who gather at every Carlmont football home game to cheer on their team and share their spirit and enthusiasm.

They will be holding an introductory meeting Thursday, Aug. 27 in the ASB room, A8, to inform incoming students of the role of this club at Carlmont.

“Our main purpose is to encourage more people to join Screamin’ Scots so that it’s not just an activity that ASB people do. We try to make it very open; anyone can join, even during one of the football games,” said Caroline Concilla, a junior and member of the spirit commission in ASB.

In the past, Screamin’ Scots have been designated a section in the bleachers in which members can socialize and cheer together. All students can join the group during any home football game to add enthusiasm to the event.

“This year there are only a couple of home games. We’re going to try to hype them up and make everyone really excited about them since we’re going to be limited to the amount of football games,” said Concilla.

According to ASB’s spirit committee member junior Sophie Clark, the Screamin’ Scots’ enthusiastic appearances will include face paint, megaphones, eye-black and Carlmont-colored clothes. As stated by Clark, ASB is looking into getting temporary tattoos and a food truck this year.

“It’s just a really good way to get excited about the games and to have another incentive to go to games. Even if our sports teams aren’t doing very well, we can still show our spirit and show how much we love Carlmont through the Screamin’ Scots. As long as we can keep the spirit up, we are able to show our pride for Carlmont and our team,” said Clark.

Last year, Screamin’ Scots had about 100 members. Although members do not have to attend every game, according to Concilla, a core group of Screamin’ Scots members are present at all home games.

“Screamin’ Scots forms unity. You can show up to a game by yourself, but you’ll end up being with other people who are all excited to participate,” said Concilla.

Junior Leo McBride has been a member of Screamin’ Scots since his freshman year, and is expecting to continue his role as a Screamin’ Scot this year.

“My favorite part is just being with upbeat people who are happy to be where they are. It’s a great experience to get to know a lot of people that you didn’t know before,” said McBride.
