GameDay stirs the masses

With close to 450 students packed into the stands of the Field House on GameDay, social studies teacher Frank Mirandola could feel the excitement and energy in the gym that Friday night.
“[It showed] the investment students are making into the school,” Mirandola said.  “It was exciting to see many students come out and partake in the different offerings.”
According to junior Peyton Eckert, the most popular activities were jousting and the bungee jump.
“There were a lot of people running around and competing against each other,” Eckert said.  “It was a lot of fun.”
Mirandola said the energy at the event was to be expected, and there was only one minor incident – a bloody nose during a boxing match.
“It was pretty crazy, but it was pretty behaved,” Eckert said.  “There were a lot of teachers [supervising].”
Overall, Eckert said that GameDay was successful because of the number of students who showed up.
“There were a lot more people into the game than football,” he said.  “I think we should do it again this year.”
According to Mirandola, another GameDay activity is being planned for the spring season.
“We’re also definitely going to do a GameDay in the winter,” he said.  “We’re going to talk to LEAP students as a sound board to see what they like or didn’t like [from this experience.]”
