Senior, team, and milestone banners becoming the norm at local and area high schools

High school sports banners are becoming more and more popular around area high schools this year, including at KMS High School, where the banner (pictured) featured the KMS senior wrestlers.

Not many years ago, if you were out for a high school sport, you’d be lucky to see a picture of your team in the newspaper, an annual, or possibly at a class reunion.

Well, in today’s world, high school athletes are lucky to have their team photos and individual pictures made into impressive banners that adorn the inside walls of high school gymnasiums and schools.

A few years ago, one of the BHS teams made a large banner of its team and started the trend.  Now, almost all the fall and winter teams have some sort of banner made recognizing their seasons.

When I was at KMS High School this winter, I noticed four banners of senior student-athletes at KMS who were competing in wrestling, boys basketball, girls basketball, and gymnastics.  On another wall was a banner for 100-win wrestlers at KMS (it took two banners because there are so many) and two others for 1,000-point scorers in girls and boys basketball.
