Dodging typical gym days with Homecoming PE games

Wednesday’s PE games included a highly competitive dodgeball tournament between classes.

A major highlight for many students every Homecoming Spirit Week are the class games on Class Color Day, but what some do not realize is that other Homecoming games occur throughout the week in gym classes for all grade levels. Anyone enrolled in physical education this semester experienced a variety of Homecoming games this week, including tug of war, eclipse ball, obstacle courses and more. 

Since all students enrolled in PE participate in these competitions, many students have different opinions based on their personal experiences with the games.

One thing students are enjoying this week is that they can team up with their friends who would not regularly be in the same gym class as them. This allows students to further enjoy gym this week, since they are able to have a friendly competition with their fellow classmates and friends.

“These games are way better [than typical PE].” says senior Lyle Winterland. “They are more fun and it brings groups of friends together.”

But for the students who are not dominating the competition, the games are not as fun.

“I’m not enjoying the games. It’s not good when your team is getting smoked every game,” freshman Christopher Hunt said. 

The winning team with the most points from each class period was presented with a trophy and banner. 

Whether students are enjoying the games or not seems to heavily correlate with whether the students are upper or lowerclassmen. As teenagers, competition is taken pretty seriously, so winning or losing can dictate the level of entertainment these games have for the PE students. That being said, it is fair to say that the gym games were an overall success, with the exception of a few losses along the way.
