Monday’s game was called “Chug that Eagle Blood”. Contestants competed to see who could drink the most Eagle Blood (Hawaiian Punch) the fastest. A table was set up and four students had a two liter bottle of Eagle Blood placed before them. As the competition started, the participants quickly picked up the bottles and began to drink it down as fast as they could. They all started off strong and the race was tight. In the end, the students had a fun time playing and the bystanders had a great time watching. The students went to great heights to prove their loyalty to Costa Mesa and show off their crazy spirit.
Students gathered at lunch time on Tuesday to participate in another Pre-Battle of the Bell game set up by Associated Student Body members. This is the second of the four daily games that occurred last week. Tuesday’s game was called “De-feather those Eagles!” where each contestant had feathers taped to their back and every player’s goal is to de-feather the other players while keeping their own. Students chased each other around the lunch area trying their best not to lose their feathers. After a fun and exciting few minutes, Junior, Wyatt Ferris, was victorious as the last one standing.
Wednesday was the third game last week. The point of today’s game was to squash “Eagles” (balloons) with their rear ends. Red and yellow balloons bounced all over the game area as contestants tried to pop them. All the commotion ended with Justin Smith emerging victorious. As the main game ended, some students made their own game by playing baseball by using a stick and some eagle head whiffle balls.
Mesa High students prepared for the Battle of the Bell Game by participating in the annual “We Eat Eagle Meat” chicken sandwich eating contest.
The cheerleaders and the school marching band were present for the last pre-Battle of the Bell game of the week. After a dance from the cheerleaders and a short tune to pump the participants up, the game began. Students stuffed one McChicken sandwich after another into their mouths in the course of 11 minutes. The first to drop out was Senior, Kory Bennion, after finishing five sandwiches. In the end, Michael Calderon won the challenge by eating a total of seven sandwiches.
