During lunch on September 15, participants in daily “lunch games” for the week were asked to compete in a relay race around the cafeteria while wearing a tutu, with the winner of the race earning spirit points for their grade. Junior Gina Daly (front) and senior Yasser Mengaoui (back) came in first and second place, respectively. “The trash can blocked me,” Mengaoui said after the race. “Otherwise, I would’ve won.”
