As the end of the year comes closer, popular events such as the annual Battle of the Sexes grace the Colt Court. Being a James Logan High School tradition, the Battle of the Sexes brings together students to enjoy fun-filled activities with prizes. Thursday's first round was won handily by the boys. Girls get a chance to get even Friday.
The boys team won Thursday's battle, emceed by Colin Malcolm, left. Team members are, from left, Adrian Gomez, Andrew Silva, Chris Bundy and Alex Smith. Lukas Grippa looks on.
The game starts out with teams of four girls and four guys during each lunch. Each team is questioned about things their gender would normally know little about. For example, a guy on the boys' team might be asked a question about make-up or brand names, and girls might be asked questions about cars or sports. Whichever team answers the most questions right, wins.
The boys won Thursday's question round and a relay, in which the teams had to transfer water from one bucket to another several yards away by soaking up water in one and squeezing it out on the other.
Low scoring participants are eliminated, and on Friday two new teams will renew the battle. The winner gender gets the infamous Ducky, which has been used as a trophy for this event.
Other prizes have not been decided yet.
Other activities that will be done as part of the game will be an obstacle course, dance-off, or even a sing-off.
Leadership supervisor Cheryl Kuhlmann said “ This is a good lunchtime activity. It gives other people who are not participating to look at something during lunch.”
Publicity has been spotty, and that may affect participation. “ I think that the senior/junior prom got in the way of our publicity," Kuhlmann said
"It will be a fun activity to share with your fellow classmates,” said Colin Malcolm, the student leading the organization of the event.
