Sponsored by the Student Ambassadors, Club Wars 2016 was a festival of fun for competing teams and spectators alike. More than 100 spectators, plus teams, filled the field area outside the library.
For the second year, teams competed against each other in eight different events − field days style – with the winning club or team receiving a spirit stick for the most school spirit. Events included a water balloon toss (left), hula hoop contest, dizzy bat relay, three-legged race, egg & spoon relay, push up contest, toilet paper toss (into a hula hoop) and a water pong tournament.
This year’s event found competition from six teams:
- Student Ambassadors
- Women’s basketball team
- Men’s soccer team
- Men’s baseball team
- Men’s basketball team
For each event, every team selected one person (or two if needed, for example, the water balloon toss) to participate. Each team then competed at the same time for the following point system:
- 1st place – 9 pts.
- 2nd place – 7 pts.
- 3rd place – 5 pts.
- 4th place – 3 pts.
- 5th place & beyond each received 1 pt.
The team with the most points at the conclusion of the events was the winner. The men’s soccer team, the 2015 champs in a landslide, were the incoming favorites.
This year competition came down to the last event, with the men’s soccer and men’s baseball teams in the lead. Edging out last year’s champs by winning the final event, where points were doubled, and setting up a new friendly Club Wars rivalry was the men’s baseball team.
