The Water Bottles that make up Victor Senior High School


I’m sure you’ve seen a variety of different water bottles from students at Victor Senior High School but what do they say about someone? If you have the latest new trendy “Stanley Cup”, does that mean you’re just trying to be like everyone else? Or if you have a Hydro Flask or Yeti, you’re following an old trend? There are so many unique water bottles hiding in peoples’ backpacks and you may never even notice. 


But what is the most popular water bottle at Victor Senior High School currently? You guessed it! The Stanley Cup. There was a time when the most popular water bottle was the Hydro Flask, but I promise you, you will not go anywhere in our school and not see someone with a Stanley Cup. 


The Stanley Cup has been around for more than 100 years and they were originally made for workmen and outdoorsmen. They keep your drinks cold for up to 9-11 hours, hot for 5-7 hours, and come in a variety of different colors and sizes. There is a 40 oz, 30 oz, 20 oz, 14 oz, and even a 64 oz called “The Quencher”. They have been around for over 100 years and they’re the ones you see most at Victor are the 40 oz or the 30 oz. 


The first occurrence of the Stanley Cup at Victor was last year when they started to become popular. You would see a student here and there holding one but it used to be “weird” if you were holding one and some students wouldn’t even bring theirs to school if they had one. Once the 23’-24’ school year started, almost every girl was carrying a Stanley in all different colors and sizes. But what changed between those 2 ½ months of summer to make students accept them? 


Another water bottle trend that we don’t see as much anymore is all of the different kinds of stickers people would put on their water bottles. That has now become much less popular and you rarely find someone with stickers on their water bottle. 


Even though Stanley’s are a big hit at Victor, there are many different kinds of water bottles. For example, to
the right is Michael Ricci’s Nalegene water bottle, and Maggie Allen’s Owala. Michael says that he
doesn’t understand what’s so special about Stanley’s. He also told me he is a fan of his water bottle because it is made in the USA. Maggie claims that her Owala is better than a Stanley because it doesn’t spill, whereas if a Stanley gets knocked over it will most likely spill. It also fits in her backpack as well. You don’t see as many students with the Owala’s but they have definitely grown in popularity and some students would even still question these two water bottles. 


The real question is…what is so special about all of these different water bottle trends throughout the years? One water bottle will become super popular all of a sudden and then the next thing you know it will be out of style, and then there will be a new trend. But why? It’s truly just a water bottle.

    Stanleys are overrated.
