Sophomore president, Emma Goodman announced to Estancia’s student body that ASB is bringing back class competitions this year, starting with musical chairs.
On Friday, September 14th, 2018 participants from each grade level that were selected, played the first round of class competitions. When the song by Miley Cyrus started: “Party in the U.S.A.”; the first-class competition began. Within a couple of seconds the first participant was out – leaving the juniors short one person. Goodman announced, “so now the juniors have less of a good chance of winning.” Students cheered for their own grade level competitors. Seniors, Eric Kenneth and Bryan Sandoval received most of the cheers. Eric Kenneth was the next to fall out of the competition allowing sister, Melia Kenneth to tease her brother with the comment, “the taller they are, the harder they fall.”
In the final round, Sandoval and Adriana Ruiz (junior) were the last two left. Ruiz stayed strong even though the juniors were short one person from early in the competition. The upperclassmen fought for the first-class competition point. The song was changed for the last round to La Chona by Los Tucanes. The crowd continued to support Sandoval. When the song paused… Ruiz stole the chair and the first point for the class competition! Despite the crowd calling for a do-over, Ruiz got the marker to tally the juniors win.
These class competitions will resume every other Friday during lunch.
