Beanbags were tossed, footballs thrown and faces painted as students fired up the grill at the StuCo-funded tailgate before Mill Valley Night Lights on Friday, August 29.

Seniors Katie Carson and Savannah Rudicel, both StuCo members, organized the event. According to Carson, the tailgate served as a means to foster school spirit.

“We wanted to do a tailgate to kind of kick off the year in sports with a lot of spirit and just get everybody together for the first time since school got out,” Carson said. “It was kind of a way for everybody to come and hang out and not have to pay for food.”

Senior Cody Deas attended the tailgate and said he was surprised at the turnout.

“I was surprised at how many people did come; I thought there would be a lot less people,” Deas said. “I had a lot of fun.”

Carson said she thought similarly of the tailgate.

“Overall I think it [went] pretty [well],” Carson said. “I think we’ll probably [host] more if we can get more people to help.”
