A Message From a Senior Viking

Ally Larkin, Sports Editor // Published December 16, 2021
Wherever the Viks travelled... we were right behind, ready to cheer them on. Friends would carpool away games and show up early to set up decorations for home games.  Our high school football games brought us together. We wanted to show up to have a blast, to represent Puyallup with an incredible school spirit. It was so special to be able to see our community—Viking's past, present and future—come together to cheer for the success of their peers, creating memories I will never forget.
