Puzzlepalooza. The biggest high school puzzling competition in America (well it's the only high school puzzle competition that shows up on Google at least). Spanning the four days of the High School Assessment (HSA) week at Blair, the fifth annual Puzzlepalooza brings together more than 320 Blair juniors and seniors into 19 teams to try to win the prizes which are HUGE!
On May 15 of last year, Blair exited the playoffs with unfinished business after suffering a 7-4 defeat to the Clarksburg Coyotes. Yesterday afternoon was a different story, as Blair (11-0) pulled away early and defeated the Coyotes (5-2) by a score of 11-6.
For many Blazers, the prospect of additional Potter films is exciting. "I love Harry Potter. I want there to be more," senior Michelle McGhee, who self identifies as a Ravenclaw, said. Her wish might just be fulfilled.
The Walter Johnson Wildcats narrowly defeated the girls' varsity soccer team (2-5) in a 2-1 game. Though the Blazers presented a strong defense and made several offensive strikes, they were unable to fight off the domineering Wildcats.
"Unleashed," the Slam Poetry Club's first event, took place on Friday during fifth and sixth period. "Unleashed" was an open-mic for Blazers who wanted to showcase their talent or practice performing.
Both teams entered the dugouts undefeated, but it was Blair that would emerge with a tarnished record, losing to Sherwood in a final score of 8-3.
