Robert B. Jamieson Stadium was so named in 1975 after Grimsley High School's Coach/Athletic Director. Coach Jamieson retired after 42 years of service. A Grimsley High School timeline of interesting facts can be found here. This is the week of one of the biggest rivalries in town, Grimsley and Page High Schools. In the above parking lot in front of Jameson Stadium, there will be tailgate parties and other festivities in anticipation of the big football rivalry. All week at the two schools, students will get to dress in "theme based" clothing : wear school colors, imitate the opposing school's fashion, dress like a twin, look like a superhero, to name a few. While we're at Grimsley, we want to mention that Home Depot and its employees spent a great deal of money and person hours providing a picnic shelter for the Grimsley Athletics Program. Thanks to Home Depot, Grimsley's picnic attendees will have a place to eat, rain or shine.
Today, Page will host a DIG PINK/SIde-Out volleyball game to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. We'll try to get a photo of Page High School while we're at the game! These rivalries are taken seriously by the high school students, but to adults, in most cases, they represent good old-fashioned fun!
