If one ever gets the chance to drive around West Duluth, it will not take them long to notice the big brick school with a clock tower that stands more than one-hundred feet tall. This building is the one and only Duluth Denfeld High School, home of the Denfeld Hunters. Duluth Denfeld, which is normally just referred to as Denfeld by alumni and present students has been around since the early twentieth century. For a school that has been around for such a long time, it has many traditions that have been carried out and practiced throughout the years. As a graduate from the hallowed halls of Denfeld in 2015, I am happy to share with you the traditions…

    This article felt a lot like home to me. I am a Forest Lake High School Alumni of 2015 and like Denfeld, we have a lot of the same traditions that made us all “Rangers” to this day. The author of this article talked about things that made their spirit week traditions special, but I found that we did all the same things excluding the bonfire. My senior year of high school, I was a bleacher captain- this meant that I was part of the group that led all of the chants at games and pep fests, as well as took part in planning themes for all the football, games, and spirit week. Being a bleacher captain was a big part of my senior year and was something to look forward to at school. Like Denfeld, our school held spirit weeks on maroon and gold, class, colors, and other themes, but we also had themes for our games, such as pink out during breast cancer awareness night, or a Hawaiian theme. As a bleacher captain, we took a large role in getting the rest of the student body in spirit for the homecoming game as well as other games throughout the seasons of sports. We lead year chants- “2015, 2015, 20,20, 2015” and this was so that all years were involved while we would alternate years and try to win at being the loudest. I agree that in many ways, these high school traditions are something we will always have to look back on- it becomes part of you “ranger” identity.
