On September 27, Centennial capped off spirit week with an extended pep rally. At the end of the day, students gathered to watch musical performances, dances, tug-of-war, drill teams, and a powder puff game. Powder puff, an annual football game with junior and senior girls, was held during the pep rally this year rather than after school. Just as in the years before, the pep rally helped build excitement towards the homecoming game and dance.

On Wednesday, September 25, Centennial seniors ate, danced, and socialized together at the annual Senior Crab Feast from 6-8pm in the cafeteria.

Seniors spent most of the first half of the night enjoying an all-you-can-eat menu featuring crabs, turkey, ham, green beans, macaroni and cheese, and more. Towards the end of the night, however, many ditched their crab mallets for the dance floor.

Keeping with tradition, the majority of seniors wore homemade crab-themed t-shirts to the event. These t-shirts, along with all of the crabs and dancing, helped this year’s senior class start the year off with a sense of unity.

During Eagle Time on Wednesday, September 25, the gym flooded with students anticipating Centennial’s first ever boys volleyball game. Following the structure of the traditional powder puff game, eighteen junior and senior boys went head-to-head.

With people packing the student section, a display of USA-themed school spirit and excited chants could be seen.

Juniors began with an advantage as Paul Russell took the stage. With a 12-5 lead, the seniors needed to make significant strides in order to catch up. Senior Shawn Kruhm had a strong serve, scoring over the juniors and beginning their comeback.

“They had us in the first half,” said Kruhm. “We played really well, it was a well deserved win.”

After 20 minutes of intense back and forth play, the clock ran out and the seniors won 29-27. The senior student section cheered as they flooded the gym floor, creating a dog pile on the court.

While the boys played with great sportsmanship and intensity, Centennial’s first ever men’s homecoming volleyball game will go down in history as a triumphant win for the Class of 2020.
