Alta High and Corner Canyon have been rivals since Corner Canyon was built. Many students love the idea of the Corner Canyon rivalry, but has it gone too far? Some administration agrees that the constant war against Corner Canyon has been pushed over the edge. “It can be really fun, but people can get carried away in this friendly rivalry. You’re there to support the team and the kids. It doesn’t feel like we are there to support them anymore, and some students get carried away,” said Mrs. Lauer.
But some students have a different opinion. “CC is stupid,” says Peter Jackman. "And many students agree." Seana Namdar shares similar feelings about the rivalry. “Foolish because they’re never going to beat us,” says Namdar. When we spoke to Abby Hilbig, she had a very strong opinion. "What do you think? Corner Canyon sucks!” We also spoke to the hockey club, they dislike Corner Canyon because they stole their hockey team a couple years ago. However, now that they got their hockey team back in first place, they aren’t holding any grudges. Corner Canyon student Zayden Hunlow says "It’s funny because we are just different schools and they make such a big deal about it.” Another Charger student says, "Alta sucks, their school looks like Wendy’s, and their football team looks like they eat there all the time. Corner Canyon is the real winner.” The head coach of the Alta football team replies back and says, ”Great Rivalry, I’m excited to play them!” In the end, Alta will fly over any competition that tries to stop us. GO ALTA HAWKS!
