Bingo hits its mark

Students filed into the gym.

The bleachers filled.

A volleyball game? Nope

A basketball game? Nope

This was something much bigger than a sport.

This was bingo.

“It was very intense because I only had two left on one of my rows, actually a bunch left on different rows,” freshman Emmanuel Jimenez Garcia said. “I was just really focused on getting those two.”

It was the same situation for the hundreds of students taking part in Tuesday’s bingo event sponsored by Student Council.

“I love the advisory events,” sophomore Sophie Paulk. “I think they are so fun. I think Student Council should definitely keep it up.”

Bingo was definitely one of the most successful StuCo events so far this year.

Students were on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear the letter and number called as they frantically scratched off their card, hoping to win.

Some had close calls but were denied.

Others would go on to win, only to be doused with a chorus of boos.

“It feels really good winning,” Paulk said.
