Although the weather necessitated moving our traditional “Friday Night Finale” to Saturday night, there was no diminishment in the excitement and enthusiasm for the Showdown2015 wrap-up! From the very beginning (with our Chess Competition at 6:45 pm) through the announcement of the winners at 10:26 pm, the energy and excitement were at their most heightened levels!
As part of the evening, over 435 students brought over 16,250 donations of non-perishable food items or personal care products — all of which would be brought to the INN. Students competed in a variety of activities, from chess to badminton to various relay races to volleyball to the famous “Meyers Math Challenge.”
The competition was extremely close, with the top two classes separated by only 8 points! At the end of the evening, the Class of 2016 was able to fend off an impressive challenge by the Class of 2015, earning a repeat of Showdown Champions! Congratulations to the Class of 2016, and thank you to all of the students for a terrific week of spirited competition!
