Flying the SK flag is becoming a community ‘thing’

PORT ORCHARD — Have you caught a glimpse of those crimson-colored “South Kitsap” flags flapping in the breeze from area residences and businesses?

With South Kitsap School District schools now back in session and the prep football season underway, the “SK Hype” team says residents should prepare for a continuation of the positive community momentum those flags represent. The team of spirited South Kitsap boosters says the flags, which feature an image of a wolf emblazoned between two lines of lettering, number in the hundreds around the region.

At the beginning of summer, booster Eric Worden said the SK Hype team had distributed about 250 South Kitsap flags. Since that time, the number has undoubtedly grown.

“We have tons more orders already and our hope is that the community will wave their flags on days of any special event or game that is happening, starting with our football games on Friday nights, September to December,” Worden told the Independent in June.

With hundreds of SK flags now a-flutter, was it a coincidence that South Kitsap High’s football team won its first game last week after losing 21 in a row? Perhaps a new coach and a new start for the Wolves at the newly christened Ed Fisher Field had something to do with it, but the spirit flags might indicate a growing sense of enthusiasm not only for the gridiron prepsters but for the South Kitsap community as a whole.

Flags can be ordered at gosouthkitsap@gmail.com and boosters can join the group on Facebook at “Show Your Wolf Flag.”
