For four days, the Ava High School community has dragged out an array of fashion statements for Hoopcoming. As always on Friday, the final day of spirit week, the halls were filled with blue and gold clothing as students gathered in our gym for the annual Hoopcoming Pep Assembly. The band played wonderful songs as people filed in and got ready for the assembly to begin.

After the cheerleaders had shown off their moves, the girls and boys basketball members lined up to be introduced to everyone. Once some inspiring words were given to encourage students to go out and cheer on the teams, the games began. Hoopcoming candidates got together with their partners to play some unique games in front of everyone. Some games involved dunking their heads in whipped cream to grab a piece of gum that they would then have to blow, while others involved them being wheeled around, collecting colorful balls. Finally, the assembly ended with a video from Mrs.Gilmore’s class and a cheering contest. All in all, there was a ton of spirit throughout the Hoopcoming week and the pep assembly, which leads everyone looking forward to next year’s Hoopcoming.
