The lunchtime event was Elephant Bowling, where students competed in a head to head battle to knock down more water bottles than their opponents using nothing but a tennis ball and a pair of tights attached to their heads. The sophomores came in first place, followed by the juniors, seniors and freshmen respectively. Blot Photos by Catherine Escueta.
