Team Jumpman by Des - almost 3 years ago
"The photograph was taken prior to a track meet, but quite a number of other Team Jumpman members are absent. CustomInk provided awesome assistance in our quest to become the most energetic and unique sports team at school. Quoted from a school newspaper article: "'Team Jumpman is the loudest, most charismatic, and most fun group I have been in so far. From the plethora of memorized lyrics that we can recite loudly to dancing in the middle of the track, nicknames, jokes, matching T-shirts and sweatshirts, dog piles, Dave Chappelle jokes, warm-ups consisting of the game ‘Ninja,’ screaming loudly, Japanese push-ups, and even pre-race routines, Team Jumpman is an unmatchable group in team spirit and pride, and our presence is felt by all on the track. The shenanigans, malarkey, and ruckus we create is unparalleled by any Bellarmine sports team and is definitely our defining factor. We aren't necessarily the fastest, but we always have the most fun,' the infamously chatty Pio Tsai ‘12 said." "The Bells in the trendy attire make up the Bellarmine track and field hurdling squad as well as their supporters. Led by Coach Lindemann, 'Team Jumpman' has been a highly competitive yet tight-knit group of athletes since the 2009 track season, when the term 'Team Jumpman' was officially created. During a sweltering practice, a light bulb went off in the mind of Chris Pham ’11. What began as a joke soon became a lifestyle as orders were submitted for navy blue 'Team Jumpman' T-shirts and the hurdlers truly bonded. This year, the group set their eyes on bigger and better things, deciding to purchase thirty-five black crewneck sweatshirts to continue the legacy. 'The new Team Jumpman sweatshirts not only look great, but they represent how far us hurdlers have gone as a team. It shows how even though track is an individual sport, we are still a band of brothers with the same sweater,' says Chris.""
