Student Mason Clarke tries to hold on as he is dragged across the half-way mark during a friendly game of tug-o-war at the spring pep rally.

Students in grades nine through 12 competed in various games and activities leading up to the final challenges: a human version of Hungry-Hungry Hippos, tug-o-war and donut hole-throwing into a cardboard cut-out of school resource officer Michael Martin.

In the end, the small-but-mighty sophomore class garnered 244 points and were named the school spirit champions.

Aside from the fun and games, a few of the school’s JROTC members presented the country’s colors as chorus members, other students and faculty members recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

The school’s drumline and band members also played various songs to get the crowd pumped.
