The final day of Showdown is always the longest! The competition is at its most heated and it continues late into the night at the Friday Night Finale! This year was not different, as the Junior and Senior classes battled fiercely against each other throughout the week.
The final day of Showdown features so many activites! The day events included:
- WSTV Trivia (Potpourri category)
- Puzzle making
- Showdown Video assembly
Going into the evening, only a dozen points separated the juniors and the seniors. Thanks to a strong performance during the evening events (and the charity events), the Class of 2017 pulled off a victory by 4 points!
From the very beginning (with our Chess Competition at 6:45 pm) through the announcement of the winners at 10:24 pm, nearly 70% of our student body were engaged in a fun, spirited evening! Students competed in the following activities:
- Sneaker relay race
- Foul shooting
- Myers Math Problem
- Minute to Win It (faculty competition)
- Clothing relay race
- Soccer goal kick
- Bridges competition
- Pyramid Cup stacking
- Over-Under Ball Pass
- Target Rock
The evening is not just about competition, however! As part of the admission to the evening, students were required to bring donations for the INN. As a result, students brought over 5,990 items for donation!
Congratulations to the Class of 2017 for its first Showdown victory, and thanks to all of the students, faculty and parents for a terrific week of spirited competition!
