Winter Court Wrap Up

January 28, 2016 Posted in: Student Life Tags: , , , ,

IMG_0590-Last week, Westminster Academy students celebrated Winter Court festivities. The high school students were given individual themes and they enjoyed being decked out in different costumes. The excitement could be heard throughout the halls as students discussed the basketball game and the potential king and queen. On Wednesday, the court partook in Chapel.

Court members walked down through the aisles of the chapel arm and arm with their Court Counterpart. Then after everyone was displayed the senior videos were played.

On Thursday, the WA High School students participated in a volleyball tournament and a barbecue. The seniors won and relished in their victory.

Friday was arguably the most important day of winter court. It started out with an early morning pep rally. Participants of the court competed in an epic lip sync battle. A group of teachers also got involved but in the end, the battle went to the seniors. Later that night, the men’s basketball team handily defeated their opponent, Somerset Academy in a 75-43 victory. During halftime, the Winter Court was called to stand out in front of the students. After a moment of silence the crowd erupted as James Scassera and Kitt Curtis were named king and queen. “It was a perfect ending to a perfect Winter Court,” summarized Kitt Curtis.

A special thank you to all faculty and staff who made this event possible.
