Many schools have traditions. Douglas MacArthur has many as well; however, the Pink Out game is considered a must. From the selling of our Pink Out shirts to decorating the school top to bottom, our honor and respect for those whom have survived and are fighting the horrible beast of breast cancer, no honor is great enough. The spirit week of the Pink Out game consists of dress up days to wear pink. On game day a pep rally was held in the courtyard to get everyone excited for the night’s game.
Walking in with their pink pom-poms and perfectly perched pink bows, the varsity cheer squad came in to rally up the faculty and students.
“Decorating the school in pink and getting everyone excited to play and watch the game is what we live for,” Kaymen Fryer, 10, said. “We love our Brahma boys and being able to support [breast cancer survivors] is the best feeling ever!”
Friday, Oct. 11 the football team took on the Roosevelt Rough Riders. During halftime they honored all of the survivors and fighters with a standing ovation. Big plays by WR #9 Ashten Glenn, 12, and RB #6 Demetrius Brock, 12, helped lift the team to their first district and overall win of the season. With a final score of 35-24 not only were the coaches and team overjoyed, but faculty, parents and students as well.
“Beating Roosevelt tonight was the greatest feeling,” Glenn said. “The boys and I work so hard and it makes playing worth it when our
hard work pays off.”
