During the pep rally Sept. 17,2019 there were eight games during the Pep rally the students could participate in. There was also a homecoming court and a pie in the face donation competition.

The Pep Rally was intended to hype up the students for the Homecoming game Friday Sept. 20.

Sophomore Jacen Houston Stated, “It was very entertaining.” Madeline Winston stated. “My favorite part was the Sumo Wrestling, it was funny.”

The homecoming court consisted of a few couples from each class. They walked in through the gym doors and went to the middle of the basketball court for a picture and then lined up where they were to stand.

The first game after the homecoming court was the dance off. There was never a declared winner, but the group obviously had a lot of fun.

The second game was football throwing. The objective was to get the most points between the student and teacher. The class with the most points won. The Juniors were the winners.

The third game was The Nosedive. The objective of the game was to get the most cotton balls with your nose and run back to the base line. Each team had four students, if a team member dropped a cotton ball they would have to go back and start over. The Juniors were the winners of this game.

The fourth game was The Helmet Hustle. The objective was to run to the middle and grab the football and get back to the Team corner without getting tagged. The seniors took home the win.

The sixth game was sumo wrestling. The two students were to push the other out of the circle without their hands. It was tournament style; the result was the juniors getting the win.
