Rosemount High School celebrated the start of a new school year Sept. 5 with its traditional back-to-school pep fest. 

The event featured a performance by the Irish marching band and the Irishettes dance team, an introduction of new teachers and a presentation of section and state banners earned by last spring's sports teams. There was also a competition among this year's fall sports captains to inflate, then kick field goals with a beach ball. 

The event also introduced this year's Irish Superfans with a skit that involved senior Ryan Brocco writing a letter of apology to Eastview High School for the Irish football team's lopsided win in the season opener. No word on whether there was a similar letter after that night's 21-0 win over Prior Lake.
