For the second time in their high school career, the class of 2016 won Spirit Week and held high the Mana Cup as a testament to their indomitable school spirit.

Their victory was earned one costume at a time, one day at a time, with the sophomore class never far behind trying to take their spot in first place. Here is a photo diary of the seniors’ path to Spirit Week victory.
