PTO EXECUTIVE COUNCIL HOSTS CRAZY SPORTS NITE
CRAZY SPORTS NIGHT 2013
(FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2013) THE SECOND ANNUAL CRAZY SPORTS NIGHT was a huge success. The crowd was massive and the teams were amazing! It was sponsored by the PTO Executive Council. The Council did a fabulous job of organizing the event. RHS Principal Dave Wicks did an outstanding job as referee, and Doc Greenberger and Lorene Custer kept the crowd cheering as Master and Madame of Ceremonies.
The crowd watched in wonder as their favorite team came onto the floor in colorful T-shirts to their theme song as it blared out over the loudspeaker.
The evening started off with an obstacle course that was both difficult and frightening at times. Teachers and staff crawled under barriers, jumped rope and hulu hooped their way to victory.
The crowd went wild as each staff member in the pass the grapefruit chain passed the fuzzy fake grapefruit down the finish line.
The 3 point shot basketball competition gave the crowd a glimpse of some former masters of the game. This event was handily won by the District Office.
As predicted, it was hard not to look silly careening down the floor on those tiny scooters in the scooter race, or prancing down the floor in the three-legged sack race.
It all came down to brute strength (or extra weight) as each sweaty team leaned into the Tug-O-War. The team from the High School won the final round of Tug-O-War against the Middle School to defeat those defending champs by a slim margin--even though there was some lingering contention that not all was kosher in the three legged race, whereby the winning trophy had to be wrestled from Middle School Principal Andrea Pekar and forcibly given to RHS Principal Dave Wicks.
This wild and crazy event raised $5,427 for the Brendan House home for victims of traumatic brain injury on Sound Avenue in Riverhead. It is hoped that Michael Hubbard will reside there as soon as it is fully remodeled.
HERE'S HOW IT ALL CAME OUT IN THE END . . . #1 - RHS, #2 - RMS, #3 - Aquebogue, #4 - Roanoke Avenue, #5 - The District Office Administration, #6 - Riley Avenue, #7 - Phillips Avenue Elementary School. Great job, everybody!
