As students gather in the commons for the usual Wednesday assembly, members of Student Council lug four buckets of water onto the front stage along with a bag full of apples. A confused murmur erupts from the crowd. What could Student Council have in store on this particular Halloween morning?

All class presidents were challenged to an old-fashioned game of apple bobbing to earn spirit points for their respective classes. Each president was required to bob a total of six apples from their buckets.

For senior class president Noah LaBelle, it didn’t prove to be much of a challenge at all, completing the task just a few moments after the competition had started. While he won five additional spirit points for the seniors, second-place winner Ben Kostas (freshmen class president) won three points, third-place winner Tyler Katchen (sophomore class president) won two points, and junior class president Gus Bayard came in fourth place, winning one point.
