Spirit Week: Day 5 Pep Rally

The junior class cheers for their grade at this year’s pep rally.

Despite previous concern about whether or not there would even be a pep rally at the end of Spirit Week, the pep rally was not cancelled and the entire school came together to enjoy the festivities. In lieu of the scheduling issue last year that caused the pep rally to be cut short, administrators ensured that a lack of time would not be a problem this year by holding the pep rally before lunch.

Each grade had their own respective themes; the freshmen were “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” the sophomores were the jungle, the juniors were “High School Musical” and the seniors were Ancient Egyptians. The pep rally featured classic activities such as musical chairs and teacher dress up as well as a new game of shooting free throws, in which the juniors won first place.

Controversy struck when it was announced that the sophomore class had won the dance competition and the seniors had placed in second. Students immediately entered the Twittersphere with complaints over the judging and fear of not winning overall. When it came time for the scream off, each respective grade cheered, but when it came time for the seniors to yell, the juniors joined in, helping the seniors win the Spirit Stick.

At 3:30, strings senior and SGA co-president Fabiola Plaza and communications senior and SGA co-president Ricky Morris announced that the seniors won Spirit Week with 56 points. The juniors trailed with 48 points. The sophomores scored 37 points, landing them in third place and the freshmen were just one point behind with 36 points.
