"Hammer to Hammer" trophy
Upon the retirement of Dr. Marlene Hammerle as principal of Rowlett High School and Mr. Steve Hammerle as principal of Sachse High School, a new tradition began. A "Hammer Trophy" was purchased and the trophy is awarded to either Rowlett High School or Sachse High School at the annual varsity football game between the two schools. The school that wins the football game is awarded the "Hammer Trophy" to be displayed at their campus for one year.
Fight on to victory,
Soar, Eagles, Soar;
This is our battle cry:
Be victorious forever more!
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fly, Eagles, proudly fly,
Soaring to great heights -
Cheer maroon, cheer the white,
Rowlett High will win the fight,
And we will charge on to victory!
E - A - G - L - E - S
Are the best!
We sing of Rowlett High School
And this shall be our quest:
To spread our mighty Eagle wings
And soar above the rest.
Lift up maroon, raise up the white
Our colors, let them fly!
For here and now we pledge ourselves
To our dear Rowlett High.
And as we leave these hallowed halls
We'll spread both far and wide;
The greatest gift that we've received -
That Rowlett Eagle Pride!
Maroon and White
