Letter: Red River fans extremely rude

On Thursday, Jan. 31, I attended the Fargo North vs. Red River hockey game in Grand Forks. As a college student, I went to watch a friend’s brother play and was excited for a night off campus. I was appalled to find the most disrespectful student cheering section in the state.

Not only did the Red River students mock the Fargo North parents and players, but they continued to shout rude chants and rub in North’s face that they were up 9 to 1.

Last year, as a senior, I know that the activities director of my school would not have stood for this and there would have been direct repercussions. Red River High School needs to seriously evaluate their sportsmanship values, and the activities director should consider being present at more hockey games.
