Senior Victory -- featuring Tucker Austin, Justin Beary, Nate Faust, Freddy Woods, Katherine Wilkins, Alex Sanders, and LaurenRoylance

The 2nd annual class battle Spirit Bowl was held last Friday, January 21, on the Mountain. The seniors came out victorious (as usual), with the faculty in second, sophomores third, and (unfortunately) juniors in last place. 

After all of the insane events, which were almost pointless to anyone else who is not a high school student, the seniors came out with a clear victory.
