It was something that nobody, even the juniors saw coming. Battle of the Classes this year was filled with amazing performances by all the classes, and the juniors stole the win! The seniors all had a look of disgust on their faces as the juniors crowded onto the gym floor after the final tally.

This year’s events were the Scooter Relay, Junkyard Relay, Egg Toss, Eating Contest, Boot Toss, Three Legged Race, Thinking Event, Tug of War, and finally, Lip Synch Battle. The juniors had an early lead in the events, but their first place title was quickly snatched by the seniors. The freshmen pulled through taking first in the Thinking Event while juniors and seniors battled it out for the championship title.

The final tallies were:

1st: Juniors

2nd: Seniors

3rd: Sophomores

4th: Freshmen

The event was a success, as it has been every year. The seniors even got so crazy at multiple points throughout the night that the referees threatened to disqualify the seniors if they didn’t get back in the bleachers!

I’d like to take a moment to say thanks to everyone who made our first ever live stream of the event go so smoothly. This event wouldn’t have gone on like it did without the wonderful team of people tonight, which were:

Commentators Daniel Sirota and Alexa Kerner; Cameramen Jonathan Silverman, Pramit Khatri, and Oojin Ji; Broadcaster Liman Chang; Photographers/Videographers Kyle Farscht, and Wesley Gelman; and, finally, our Co-President of Studio 462 and tonight’s supervisor: Brendan Weissman.

A huge thanks to our sponsors as well as the Education Foundation for their continuous support of Studio 462. We can’t keep this group running without them!

We hope you enjoyed our stream tonight (and juniors, we hope you enjoy your win). Be sure to follow Studio 462, as our basketball streaming season begins on Friday, December 16!
