Competitive juices flow strong through the bodies of the contestants. Pencils are sharpened and minds are flowing with ideas and information retained over the last few months. UIL teams are hard core, with so little credit given. Several writing students are now bound for regional competition April 15-16 following their performance at the district academic meet last week.

The excitement was tangible in the cafeteria last Friday night as students trickled in, but doubt still hung in the air. Some gathered in clusters around the stage as hushed whispers traveled throughout on the possible downfall of this year’s Battle of the Bands. Others traveled out into the court yard for food and face painting.

Senior Boys Prepare for Mr. Madison

By Christina Dimyan

Mr. Madison is definitely not your typical competition. Most people think of pageants as a contest for girls, however Mr. Madison breaks that tie and gives senior guys a chance to have their own fun.

“I think its going to be the funnest thing I’ve done all year,” senior Philip Brown said. “A bunch of my friends are going to be there so it will be a really fun atmosphere.”

This event will be held May 5 in the new auditorium, from 7 to 9 p.m. for $5 admission. Competitions include best dressed, question and answer, talent, and additional academic and athletic competitions. There will be a popularity vote by applause. A committee of teachers and administrators will come together to judge each area.

“The boys are trying to prove their strength in all areas showing that they are the world’s strongest Maverick,” yearbook sponsor Allison Boerger said.

Each of the seniors competing have been given a jar to collect money. All of the money they collect will be converted into points that will help their overall score to win. All donations go to the yearbook committee and will help keep the costs of yearbooks down.

Nate Finley- Theatre
