Green Comes Out On Top

Glen Cove High School recently hosted the PTSA-sponsored Red vs. Green Games, an evening of traditional and non-traditional sporting activities in which students 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. Current elementary school students were invited to share in the fun. Current Glen Cove High School students represented their former elementary school in the games, with 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 2013.

All tied up at the end, a game of co-ed handball determined the victor. The Green Team emerged the winner and advanced to play the Faculty Team in volleyball, which the Green Team also won. 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.
