This year the Chapmanville Tigers will be playing the Man Hillbillies. Everybody has predicted this to be an exciting game and the Tigers are sure to win. This past week has been our spirit week, which started on Tuesday with Western day. Following that was Decade Day on Wednesday, Superstar Day on Thursday, and Orange & Black day on Friday. We had a wonderful turnout of students participating, especially on Thursday. Although many found it appropriate to dress in Orange & Black on Thursday due to the Battle of the Classes; others created their own Camo Day.
The Battle of the Classes was a competition between the freshmen, sophomore, junior, and senior classes. They battled on the front lawn of the school in tricycle races and relay matches amid enthusiastic cheering and chanting from the whole school. After two class periods, the announcment was made that Seniors were the winning class. Some argue that the win was handed to them simply because they are Seniors. Nevertheless, we all had fun and practicied good sportsmanship. On Orange and Black day, the hallways were blinding with school spirit and enthusiasm - partly because of the game and partly because of the early realease.
The early release allowed us to meet up with our friends and watch the parade, which lasted for almost an hour. Many companies participated in the parade to advertise themselves and the band, football team, and cheerleaders were all riding along as well, throwing candy to young onlookers. All of the classes floats were fantastic and were greatly appreciated by the general public. The parade ended with our senior class officers and the homecoming court of both CRHS and CMS.
