Seniors reclaim the Spirit Stick


Seniors take back the spirit stick from the freshman at this year’s Homecoming Pep Rally. The Pep Rally started off with an amazing performance from the PHS Cheerleaders. Some of our faculty joined the Indianettes for our annual teacher dance.

And what is a pep rally without competition? This year the new game was Magic Carpet where students from each class lay on towels and another student pulled them across the gym. Ultimately, the sophomores took the prize.

The games ended with our annual tradition of tug a war. The finale came down to the Juniors vs the Sophomores with Juniors taking the win.

From school spirit to cries of victory, PHS knows exactly how to celebrate a pep rally. While it was close, the Seniors took back the spirit stick and won the pep rally! Casey Grell, senior at Powhatan High school, announced her class win with joy and pride.

While our pep rallies look effortless so much work goes on behind the scenes that nobody sees. A huge shout out to SGA, Ms. Wilson, Ms Jacobs, Ms. Davoud, the SGA student officers, and all of the performance groups. All of these people work so hard to make our pep rallies happen. Go Indians!!
