Just this past week, Granite Hills Grizzlies hosted yet another annual Battle of the Sexes following yet another yearly event called Grizz Games. Battle of the Sexes is a competition the entire school participates in, females battle it out against the males for school supremacy. Grizz Games is a competition between different student teams featuring a different activity each lunch.
"These past couple of weeks have been very busy for our ASB, but definitely fun," said senior ASB member Ernestina Quintero. "I thought it all turned out great and all of ASB's hard work paid off."
With 10 groups altogether involved in Grizz Games, the competitions during lunch included a dance competition the first day, a water relay the second day, obstacle course the third day, and tug of war the final day.
"My favorite part was the dance competition because every group made up their own hilarious dance and I found it very amusing and entertaining to watch all of them," said senior Kelsey Blackburn, team member of one of the Grizz Game groups.
There was a large turnout of students this year wanting to get involved, which made for a made for a competitive atmosphere. Judged by English teacher Teresa Garcia, French and Spanish teacher Filomena Lewis, math teacher Nathan Keith, and math teacher Janice Rodriguez, there was close competition every game.
On the week of April 16, the Battle of the Sexes began. Throughout the week, males and females were chosen to go through obstacles during the lunch break to determine what gender is the best.
“It was fun watching the guys and girls compete for superiority,” said junior Milton Ramirez.
At the end of the week, Thursday, April 20, the Battle of the Sexes rally was held. The gym was divided into one female side, decorated by purely females, and into the male side, decorated by males. Just as every year, one side was filled with pink while the other was filled with blue.
ASB sported their new Battle of the Sexes shirts while students wore pink or blue to support their gender.
The genders battled out and in the end, the females came out on top, just as they have for the past four years.
“I think the girls deserved the win, it was a really good competition and it was obvious we were going to win,” said junior Madison Rice, “It was really fun to watch.”
