Glen Cove High School hosted the PTSA-sponsored Red vs. Green Games last month, an evening of traditional and non-traditional sporting activities in which students and adults represented their schools of past and present allegiance by donning either red- or green-colored attire. Students of all ages came to their schools the day of the event wearing either red or green. Gribbin and Connolly elementary schools are traditional green schools while Deasy and Landing are red schools.
During the Red vs. Green Games, points were awarded for the best representation of team through colored shirts, posters in the crowd, the loudest cheering fans and of course, how the team members performed in competition. Proceeds raised from the gate donated to the Glen Cove Community Scholarship Fund for the awarding of scholarships to deserving graduating seniors in the Class of 2014.
The Red Team emerged victorious. Games included dodge ball, handball, a relay and a student vs. faculty and staff volleyball game in which the adults came out on top.
Many thanks to the students and faculty who participated, all Glen Cove PTA units and the GCHS Student Senate who helped make the evening a success.
