While the Lower Schoolers were competing in the CAC for Field Day, the Middle School congregated on the field in front of Eaton Hall to compete in one of their final Intramural competitions of the year. This time, however, the teams had some new members to indoctrinate. Fifth graders joined the current sixth and seventh graders and were assigned to the color team they would be a part of for the entirety of their time in the Middle School. Students are divided into Blue, Yellow, Purple, Pink, or Green teams when they enter the school. The first task of the day: Create a team cheer. Students had time to gather and brainstorm on a catchy spirited choreographed cheer. The teams were judged by faculty members for their creativity and performance. Later on, they competed in a Rock Paper Scissors face-off, Tug-o-war, and finally a game Shipwrecked. The Intramural Program is organized by Heather Slaughter and the groups compete throughout the school year. The results from Friday's competition: Blue 161 points; Orange, 113; Purple, 88; Pink, 67; Green, 43; and Yellow, 11.
