As the last quarter of the year rolls around, seniors get ready to graduate and start their lives. Senioritis seems to run rampant throughout the class, but events are held for seniors  every year to help boost morale and have fun before the seniors leave. One such event held annually is the Senior Faculty Games, where seniors play against teachers in basketball and volleyball.

 “[I joined the games] because I like to be active with the students, why not,” Family and Consumer Science teacher Darcy Jaeger said.

The games started with the girls volleyball, where they played two games that the seniors won and a third round just for fun.

“[I think the games went] great because we won, and it was fun to see the tennis players try to play volleyball,” senior Emily Heimerman said.

Next was the boys basketball game, which the teachers won.

“It was fun, it was a lot of fun, it was a lot more competitive than I thought it would be, like everybody was fired up, which made it a lot of fun,” English teacher Tristan Carson said.

Students enjoyed watching staff members play out of their normal roles and get excited about their favorite sports.

“I would say [my favorite part was], as the kids say, ‘popping off’, making a lot of buckets, ballin’, draining a 3,” Carson said, “Sorry to the seniors, look out juniors.”
