On Thursday, December 7th, the much-anticipated Class Wars finally arrived. As the inflatables came in and were blown up, the Oratory student body piled in. It was obvious who was who as each class filed in with their distinct class colors. After the inflatables and miscellaneous events were ready, Class Wars had begun. Many people’s favorite thing about Class Wars is that there is nonstop action everywhere. This held true again as the four main events of boxing, joust, sumo, and miscellaneous transpired through several rounds at the same time. The matchups included 11th grade vs 12th grade, 9th vs 10th grade, and 7th vs 8th grade. While most match ups were back and forth with multiple sides taking the victories, the 7th and 8th grade matchup was thoroughly dominated by the 8th grade. Since the winner of Class Wars is calculated by the number of points won from these matchups, the eighth grade had a resounding victory. After many of the students participated in the Wars, some members of the faculty participated in the Wars against each other. This included a joust matchup between two of OP’s finest math teachers Mr. Barresi and Mr. Gaertner, a boxing match between Mr. Maybe and Mr. Kaounis, a sumo match between Mr. Marsh and Mr. Maybe, and a boxing match between Mr. Gordon and Mr. Parsalls. The joust was won by Mr. Barresi, the boxing matches by Mr. Gordon and Mr. Maybe, and the sumo was won by Mr. Maybe. While Class Wars only lasted 90 minutes it produced a long list of highlights that will definitely stick with many members of the audience.
