Recently the Walt Whitman senior class took on the faculty in an exciting and entertaining series of sporting events in the South Gymnasium. The annual Senior Faculty Sports Night is always an anticipated event as our seniors look to even-out a few grade points and our faculty break out their old sweat bands and gym sneakers to show the students that they too have a history of athleticism.

From volleyball to basketball, tug-of-war to musical chairs, the events were highly competitive and had spectators cheering continuously in their seats. The event titled Mission Impossible proved to be just that, as the obstacle course revealed the true inner-workings of each team’s ability to strategize, and sabotage, their opponents.

Dodge Ball really brought the energy out of the seniors as they all came together for a shot at their favorite teachers. With the not-so-soft balls whizzing by, the teachers were relieved to step off of the court as the seniors declared victory.

The games were fierce, but fun was had by all. The evening ended with two rounds of tug-of-war, the first in which the teachers took the win. As for the second round, the seniors prevailed and claimed victory for the evening by a small margin, but nonetheless, a well deserved win. Thank you to all the students and teachers who came out for this fun evening. Thank you to Mrs. Zamow and the Senior Class Officers for organizing such a great event!
