Seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen alike rushed about the quad and dome Thursday at lunch. Two representatives from each class rushed to find particular items to be the first to complete the scavenger hunt within the time limit. There was yelling, there was running, and there was anxiety. Finally, even before the end of the time limit, the seniors completed their list by finding the last item.
Clash of the classes is a week where every class picks a representative (or two depending upon the game) to compete in the lunch activities in an attempt to win for their class. Clash of the classes did not happen last year, but this year they decided to resurrect it, and according to sophomore class V.P. Jazzy Jamie, they’re glad they did.
Monday started out with a simple song, some marshmallows, and a few cups of 7UP. The song that was played was called “Roxanne” and each time the name Roxanne was said, you needed to eat a marshmallow. Then, each time the song said “red light”, one needed to take a drink of 7UP. This first event Walter Garcia won with a total of 24 marshmallows.
Tuesday was an obstacle course, and each class needed two students to participate. The course was a three legged race, followed by jumping over a line of cones, (during the cones you had to wait for your partner to finish before you started) then, you had to take an egg on a spoon, in your mouth across the finish line.(If you dropped the egg you had to start over.) In this event the sophomores went first, ending with a time of 26 seconds. Then the freshmen went next, with a total of 32 seconds. The juniors went third, with a finishing time of 36 seconds. Finally the seniors Kory Bennion, and Walter Garcia went last for a grand total of 22 seconds, winning it the second day in a row for the seniors.
Considering the fact we had early out Friday, (therefore no lunch), the final event was played Thursday. The event was an A-Z scavenger hunt. The list ranged everything from a yellow accessory, to a 15 year old. As soon as the time started, (7 to 10 minutes), chaos was set loose. Finally though, the seniors won it before the time was up, finding all their A-Z items.
Considering the fact that the seniors won three of the four events it is quite obvious that seniors were the victors in this year’s clash of the classes, making sure they don’t leave this campus without reminding us of how great they are.
