page5madnessAnd they say Arcadia isn’t big on sports. On Thursday, Nov. 6 Arcadia students came out to the gymnasium in the Kuch Center to support its athletic teams at the annual Knight Madness Pep Rally.

The night consisted of several audience participation relays and activities, such as the traditional basketball game between faculty and staff and students selected from the audience. Attendees at the event watched intently as both teams went head to head. The game was tight but students scored a basket in the last few minutes of the game resulting in a winning 8 to 6 game.

You didn’t have to participate in an activity in order to win big. There were several raffles drawn throughout the evening that gave students the chance to win big value prizes such as tickets to the Philadelphia Eagles and the Philly Soul, and even a Nintendo Wii.

As always the Knight Club had a chance to show off some of the moves they’ve been working on for the upcoming Knight Performances, and like years in the past, they were a huge crowd pleaser.

The newly vamped Knight Cheerleading Squad also took the floor getting the crowed amped as they showed off their acrobatic skills and enthusiasm for the school.
All sports teams, Fall, Spring, and Winter had the chance to come up and give their Seniors a send off in front of the student body.

The night was also used to debut new Sweatshirts that are being sold by the Senior Class in order to raise money for their Senior Week activities and the newly designed Arcadia mascot. Both the sweatshirts and the Knight were designed by Graphic Design Major Dan Sypolt ’09.

The evening ended as the Arcadia Student body welcomed the basketball team prepping for the start of the 2009 Winter season and the opportunity for students with eligible raffle tickets to win $500. Selected students were given the chance to make a basket from half court for the chance at this Grand Prize. Unfortunately, no one walked away with this prize this year.
