Ah, Red and Gold, the most beloved tradition here at Rosary. Where sisterhood is forged over tears, laughter, and caffeine overdose.

And at the end of it all, one team experiences the true feeling of sweet, sweet victory. When your own team is called and the confetti rains down on you, and you realize that the past 6 weeks have finally paid off for this amazing win.

However, for a very unfortunate group, the sensation of winning has been ever so elusive.

This past week, we have seen many seniors with that special gloom on their face. These, in fact, were the seniors who have never won a Red and Gold.

Senior Alex Samawi sadly stated, “The feeling was too familiar. I feel like I got desensitized over the years. My older sister also lost every year, so that just makes everything better #8years.”

Another depressed senior Marga Diaz cried, “Consistency is key. Live. Love. Loser club.”

Even our own beloved (and newly pregnant) Ms. Barclay lost all her years here. She sobbed, “Losing all four years has made me a stronger and better person. I understand that life isn’t fair and there is no justice but I’m not bitter or anything like that (even though I should have won my senior year when I was script captain).”

We tried to interview another known four-year loser, Ms. Young, yet she simply put her down and refused to speak. This experience can take a toll on someone’s heart.

There are already some Juniors who are preparing themselves for another loss next year and becoming a four-year loser. Our own Kate Noden has lost all three years so far. With her sister also losing all four years, she knows the road ahead does not look good. Alumna Kennedy Noden gave sisterly advice by strongly stating, “I believe she needs to mentally start preparing herself now, so next year the heartbreak won’t be as bad.”

We keep all the present and future four-year losers in our hearts as we brace ourselves for next year’s 50th Red and Gold. Only 358 days away.
