On Monday, November 20, the Walt Whitman senior class took on the faculty in an exciting and entertaining series of 6 sporting events in the South Gymnasium. The Senior Faculty Sports Night is always an anticipated event as our faculty like to remind the seniors that they once took to the sports courts, albeit for some, many moons ago.

From Basketball to Volleyball to Musical Chairs, the events were somewhat competitive, but the seniors prevailed in just about every event! A relay-style event titled ‘Mission Impossible’ proved to be just that, as the obstacle course frustrated most of our post-graduates.  Nerf Dodge Ball really brought out the seniors, all clamoring for a shot at their favorite teacher or administrator. It was a welcome relief for the 2 games to be over and the seniors declare victory.

The games were fierce - but fun was had by all. Congratulations to the Walt Whitman Senior Class of 2018 on their victory. Thank you to Ms. Zamow for organizing this great event, and thank you, faculty and seniors, for providing boundless entertainment.
