Tuesday night, the high school boys competed in the Student Council’s annual Macho Man competition. Each grade fielded a team to compete to win the championship and to have a chance to face the staff team. Each game played one set and the first team to 25 points won.

The first game saw the Senior Class face off against the Freshman Class. The senior team consisted of Trey Rominger, Jason Beavers, Willson Windhorst, Andrew Kumpf, McKinley Stewart, Raygar Minton, Hunter Moffatt and Adam Barnhart. The group was coached by fellow seniors Carley Higgins, Abby Tapp, Lily Stroud, Stella Windhorst, Gracie Brown, Faith Gammon and Ella Spires.

The Junior Class was made up of Brian Fullington, Coy Busick, Peyton Baker, Fletcher Cole, Jaxson Reynolds, Jeremiah Hutcheson, Carson Neal, Jonny Shellenburger, William Baker, Isaiah Apple, Ryley Butler, Ian Drake, Hayden Bostock, Josh Zapien and Jareth Nunez.
