rom Jan. 13-17, Leadership hosted the school’s first Class Royale, a week-long event inspired by Homestead HS’s traditions: Clash of the Classes. The event aimed to bring the classes together with competitive and fun games that could be enjoyed by participants and spectators alike. According to the commissioner of Bull Spirit and senior Neha Balusu, Leadership decided to host the event in January because of the lack of social activities occurring during the month.

“I think [Class Royale is] just an easy and fun way to bring people together,” Balusu said. “We have multiple events happening, so people might be more interested in Spikeball versus others might be more interested in dodgeball.”

Balusu was surprised by the weak turnout but hopes that the event can become an MVHS tradition. While the Class of 2020 won second place overall, it struggled throughout the week by placing third in the tug-of-war and Spikeball events and by winning first in dodgeball only after the class they lost to was disqualified.
