This Saturday night, come and see Broadway Blue and Warrior White go head to head in the most intense competition of 2016: Sport Night at Oceanside High School. The excitement starts at seven o’clock when both teams will show their team spirit by taking part in two dances, followed by a series of competitive sports events including the crowd favorite, crab soccer.
Victoria Staltaire, head captain of the Blue Team, along with the other blue captains Sijah Harris, Kelsey Mitchell, Melly Bert and Kelsey Patton, have stated that they have confidence in their team and anticipate victory. Victoria said, “It’s a lot of organization, like shirts and pasta parties. I think my team is pretty prepared, and we need to just perfect everything at this point.”
Dominique Dimicelli, captain of the white team, states that “The amount of work that goes into sport night is very time consuming but, yes, it is worth it when you win.” The other white team captains Gabby Mauro, Jordyn Parks, Kaitlin Costello and Rachel Esposito have put in a lot of hard work to hopefully win this Saturday.
Preparation is essential to any team seeking victory at Sports Night. Mr.Turk, head of student activities, says that for a team to win Sport Night, “It is about how well they work together. The amount of work they have to do in the span of a month is very difficult. So if everybody has the right mindset of coming together and working to be the best team possible, they can succeed.”
As the girls get ready for Saturday, I asked some participants from each team about what they are excited about most. Senior Danielle Iadevio said, “I am most excited for the memories made at Sport Night, and since it’s my senior year, I can’t wait to win.” As the excitement over Sport Night grows, so does the intensity. Make sure you bring five dollars at the door and get there early for a good seat!
