We interviewed some of the team captains to see how they felt about participating in battle of the classes.
We asked the seniors this question, What made you want to do battle of the classes ?
Senior, Anthony Sousa, said, “I wanted to do battle of the classes because last year a junior team won, and this year I didn’t want another one to win this year. But it’s not looking very bright plus it’s senior year. We kept the same group as last year. Plus nobody else in ASB was doing it besides Viv’s team so we wanted more people to get involved.”
Senior, Amber Peralta, said, “I wanted to do battle of the classes because it’s my senior year and I thought, what do I have to lose? ”
We then asked the juniors, What team do you think is going to win ?
Junior, Dylan Rosa, “I feel confident that my team will win because we have been doing well and are all athletic.”
Junior, Taylor Kelton, said, “I think nappyheads will win this week because they have a lot of athletic people.”
We asked 2 sophomores, What are your expectations for battle of the classes ?
Sophomore, Thomas Rosa, said, “I wanted to do battle of the classes because I hadn’t done it before so I thought it would be a great experiences.”
Sophomore, Ana Porchia, “I joined battle of the classes to be able to compete with some of my friends and be involved.”
The last question we asked, How does it feel to be a part of the battle of the classes ?
Sophomore, Zac Schoenau, said, “I think battle of the classes is going really well because I feel involved.”
At the end of the week, The overall winners were the J-J-J-JUNIORS! Dylan Rosa’s interview turned out to be accurate when he said he thought they were going to win.
