Seniors won Campion Academy’s annual class competition, Scramble, with a lead of over 200 points. After coming in second place the past two years, the class of 2023 was determined to win this year.
Daniel Moraes, senior, commented,”Class scramble was amazing and fun, honestly at the beginning I thought we were going to lose but we started picking up the rhythm and ended up winning. I was really excited and glad that we won our last year.”
The seniors kicked off the Saturday night event with Principal Don Reeder warning everyone to beware of their surroundings. Then, the lights went out, dubstep music blared, and the seniors jumped out from their hiding places, running and yelling around the gym.
Cecilia Simmons, new staff member and SA sponsor, exclaimed, “Oh. My. Goodness. I have been to many a junk scramble in my career, but that was intense. I even got chills when the seniors made their entrance. My adrenaline was so high after the night, I didn’t want to sleep. Clearly I had too much fun. What a night and congratulations to the seniors.”
Each class got dressed in their class colors and competed against each other in the gym, after two years of having it outside. Reeder called out items from a snowboard to a chocolate kiss ribbon that students raced to the center. Students participated in the traditional drills of dead cow, man overboard and air raid. Campion’s Student Association (SA) also added new games such as “cups” and “the floor is lava” to the excitement.
Even for the classes that didn’t come in first place, the night was an opportunity to build class spirit and excitement for the school year. Lillian Resz, freshman, reflected, ”Class scramble was super fun, and it was a perfect opportunity to get close with everyone in our class.”
