Congratulations to the Senior Class for being the winners of the annual Massacre contest. It was a close win as the freshman beat the seniors in the volleyball event. However, the seniors were able to pull off the win. Second place was won by the junior class after tying with the sophomores and winning a basketball shootout. Freshman were very respectable in their participation in all events. We look forward to the winter Massacre!
