Greek Week started off with a pop as the competitors’ communication skills were challenged with blindfolds and balloon popping. It began with callers directing a pair of their blindfolded teammates to collect bag of balloons on a stool. Once that pair returned, another group of two were sent to collect the second bag. After both pairs had successfully returned with their balloons, two designated balloon blowers inflated the balloons before the selected popper popped them. They repeated this game twice to truly declare the winner.
It was a fierce competition between the four classes. The sophomore class started off strong but it did not take long for the junior and senior class to overtake them and make the battle between themselves. Chole McGlynn, a competitor on the senior team, said, “I think it’s really up in the air. There’s a lot of good talent out here both from the freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, so i think it’ll be a nail biter.”

I feel really good i think we chose perfect people for each event. It’s just good to start off with a bang to show everyone who’s really in the competition this year.” The sophomores are in third place and finally the freshman close the group in fourth place. “I love to see the kids get super involved- it’s a lot of community spirit they’re jumping around having fun,” said Dawn Matthews, a teacher at LHS. The next Greek Week game is Tuesday, April 19 on the football field. See you all there.
