The upper school DECA chapter and Spirit Club hosted a game of capture the flag where each class competed against each other during long lunch today.

DECA designated the month of November to celebrate the start of competitions. The Harker chapter gives back to the community by hosting a spirit event, capture the flag, to bring the the club and the student body together.

Two teams, each with 15 representatives, compete against each other in a game. Each side had a bucket in the safe zone at the two ends of the playing field that contained 10 balls. The participants had to run to the other color’s side and take the balls back to their own domain, but if a person from the opposing team pulled off one of the flags on their belt, the player must stay in the jail on the side of the arena. The goal of the game is to take as many balls as possible from the opposite side in the allotted time.

The seniors won against the sophomores with a score of 10-0, juniors defeated the freshmen also with a score of 10-0 in the first two rounds of capture the flag.

“In the first game, I think that we were disorganized, but in the second game, we did a lot better,” sophomore Makenzie Tomihiro said.

During the consolation game, sophomores beat the freshmen 6-4, and in the championships, juniors won with a score of 8-2.

“I think it was a great partnership between two clubs that usually don’t interact with each other, which were DECA and Spirit club,” Haley Tran (11) said. “Because [DECA is] so big and one of the more well known clubs in the school, it was great that they also incorporated the class competition with it because we got participation from not only DECA, but also Spirit. It was a good way for the classes to bond during a lunch time game.”

DECA Vice President of Public Relations Logan Drazovich (12) describes the process that went into the planning the game of capture the flag.

“There’s a lot of making sure that we have everything reserved, making sure that people are signed up, getting the word out about it, getting everyone excited,” DECA Vice President of Public Relations Logan Drazovich (12) said. “I think we did a pretty good job. We had a solid turnout.”

The next event for DECA will be the Leadership and Competitive Excellence conference, which will occur from Friday to Sunday in San Jose.
