Mayhem Week offers spirit events for students
The StuCo-sponsored Mayhem Week began with a dodgeball tournament on Monday, May 7 and ended with a mud volleyball tournament on Saturday, May 12.
“It’s a week full of school spirit,” StuCo sponsor Erica Crist said. “Mayhem Week is a fun way to end the school year.”
This year, the funds raised went to StuCo funds, which are used to pay for different school activities, help support other groups and clubs and to give scholarship money to senior StuCo members.
On Monday, the dodgeball tournament took place, which included six teams of six players each.
The winner of the tournament was the team Brick Squad. The team members, freshman Patrick Muldoon, sophomores Ben Carroll and Jason Biesma and juniors Kyle Kain, Brett Hamilton and Nathan Stacy, were awarded a “golden” sphere for the win.
“Going into double overtime against the Brick Squad was the best part of the night,” sophomore Hunter Moravac said.
On Tuesday, May 8, the senior versus faculty game took place. The seniors were overwhelmed by the faculty’s power according to senior Tony Vitale, with the faculty winning 70-42.
“It was a blowout,” Vitale said. “We probably should have forfeited the game.”
In the talent show, 13 acts performed, but the overall winner was freshman Alex Ayala for his beat boxing performance. For winning first place, he received $30 along with a rubber ducky.
“The talent show is my favorite part of Mayhem Week,” Crist said. “All the students put so much work into it. It’s great seeing the wide variety of talent.”
Topping off Mayhem Week, students participated in mud volleyball. There were 16 teams in the tournament with six players on each team. The Brick Squad also won.
“Even though our team left early, it was fun killing the teams that we played and getting completely dirty,” sophomore Ty Smith said.
Sophomore Sankie Smith had similar views on playing mud volleyball.
“The fact that we were playing in mud, not sand [made it fun],” Sankie said. “Mud brings a different aspect to the game.”
