Students Assume Stereotypes for Class Clique Day

As Spirit Week comes to an end, students were able to dress up according to class cliques. Freshmen dressed as nerds, sophomores dressed as preps, juniors dressed as jocks and cheerleaders, and seniors dressed as goths and punks. At lunch today there was a powderpuff basketball game and powderpuff cheerleading competition.

“I played because girls don’t get to play at Dreyfoos and it’s a good opportunity to represent my class and play the sport that I love,” communications sophomore Valerie Betts, who played in the powderpuff basketball game, said.

The freshman and junior powderpuff basketball team took the win with a final score of 8-2 against the sophomore and senior team.

At the end of the first half of the basketball game the freshmen and junior team was up 4-2 . During halftime, the boys powderpuff cheerleaders performed. Each grade’s performance was marked by catchy pop songs, popular dances, and scandalous outfits. After deliberation, the judges gave the freshman fourth place, the juniors third place, the sophomores second place, and the seniors came in first place.

“It’s really cool to see that the traditions that have been in place for so long are continuing to carry out with the same spirit as when they began,” communications junior Maya Levkovitz said.
