With the theme of the Academy Awards that never were, students took to Muscaro Gym Tuesday afternoon for the Winter Pep Rally, hosted by the School's SCA groups. First off: Pirates of the Caribbean and a match between Lower and Upper Schools in a game of Treasure Hunt. The scrappy Lower Schoolers were too quick for the Upper School pirates and were able to steal enough treasure to earn their own eye patches. Next, Middle Schoolers took us to a galaxy far, far away (well, center court), with their re-enactment of the many battles and characters in the Star Wars series. The Light Side won, and Yoda was victorious. Then, the Average Joe's easily defeated the Purple Cobras in a energetic game of Dodgeball. Poor Caroline McGimsey ’17 was the last Cobra standing... but not for long. Finally, after the Lower School was dismissed, the Middle and Upper schoolers cheered on the Girls and Boys Varsity Basketball teams as they took on a motley crew of faculty members, including Dean of Students Stephen Belderes, Field Hockey Coach Lilly Judge, Physical Education Instructor and Coach Mary Semler, and Middle School Basketball Coach Jason Jones, Soccer Coach James Brown, and even alum Kennedy Nwabia ’15, just to name a few. Faculty squeaked out a win in the last minutes of the game, giving them a third win in a row.
