This past week Brebeuf Braves entered Blues Week, the annual spring spirit week. This spirit week contained dress-up days, the SnoBall Dance, and a pep rally on Friday that got everyone excited for the girls’ and boys’ basketball game against Bishop Chatard. 

Every day of Blues Week there was a dress-up theme, and students had the opportunity to win prizes if they won “best dressed.” Monday, students dressed up in tie-dye. Tuesday was Zoo Day, as students either dressed as their favorite animal or as a zookeeper. Wednesday, students dressed up as their favorite holiday while on Thursday, students got to come to school in pajamas. Friday started with a “black-out” theme for the school day, but students were encouraged to dress head-to-toe in gold to the girls’ and boys’ basketball game versus Chatard.

Braves also got the chance to win awards every day of the week by scanning a QR code in the cafeteria. Some of the prizes were a Stanley Cup, an Xbox controller, and airpods. 

The Friday pep rally might have been one of the highlights of Blue’s week. The whole school gathered together in the gym to watch a game of tug-a-war go down. The freshman started off strong by defeating the junior class, and the seniors quickly followed by beating the sophomores. However, the game didn’t get intense until the final battle between the freshman and the seniors. This match-up was definitely close, with the freshman almost getting the win but then the seniors taking over for the ultimate victory.

The pep rally got the Braves in spirit for the basketball doubleheader against Chatard. The girls took down the Trojans first, with a 63-49 win. Audra Kendall led the team with 20 points, and Nathalie Anderson had a double-double with 10 points and 20 rebounds. The boys quickly followed the girls’ victory, also beating the Trojans 69-42 with Evan Haywood having 27 points. 

Closing out Blue’s week, the Braves headed downtown for the annual Snoball Dance. The dance took place at Industry this year, with a widespread dance floor and a DJ.
