CARRIER MILLS -- Carrier Mills-Stonefort High School just completed its fifth PBIS Event of the year on Jan. 29.
Homeroom Challenge No. 5: The Chicken Football Tournament took place the last week in January. Each class had one team in the tournament. Five minutes were placed on the clock, seven rubber chickens were placed in the center of the floor, and the competitors played rock, paper, scissors to see who gained control of the rubber chicken. This continued until one team scored a touchdown, and then the process started again in the center of the floor.
The freshman team, Manier's White Knights, consisted of Honey Rose, Devyn Valdez, Kaylee Smith, Logan Morris, and Laney Rister.
Klope's Fighting Illini, the sophomores, were Riley Avery, Zoe Threlkeld, Dalton Stevers, Anna Sturgill, Robbie Hadley, and Andrea Sumner.
The junior team, Mitchell's Marauders, were made up of Aidan Rollins, Colton Rice, Caden VanMeter, Ethan Morse, Malaki Metcalf, and Jacob Reeves.
Mathews' Mighty Marvels, the seniors, were Haven Martin, Gavin Childers, Sotte Godsey, Bryer Blackman, and Mason Kalodner.
This round robin tournament began on Monday, Jan. 25 with Manier's White Knights taking on Mitchell's Marauders. It was Manier's White Knights scoring first and often with a 35-14 win to advance to the championship game.
The next day, it was Mathews' Mighty Marvels against Klope's Fighting Illini. The Marvels completely dominated the game with a 35-14 win to advance to the championship.
In the consolation championship, Mitchell's Marauders held off Klope's Fighting Illini at the goal line to win 21-14. Coach Mitchell and her Marauders were presented with the Consolation Championship Belt after the game.
On Jan. 29, the championship game was played between Manier's White Knights and Mathews' Mighty Marvels. At the end of regulation, the game was tied 21-21. It was the senior class in overtime scoring the winning touchdown. Mathews' Mighty Marvels were handed the championship belts and Mrs. Mathews was awarded the Victory is Ours trophy.
After five events, the seniors are in first place with 38 points, the juniors are in second place with 36, the freshmen are in third place with 34 points, and the sophomores are in fourth place with 32.
The class with the most points after the final homeroom challenge will win a pizza party on April 30.
