JAMESTOWN – Students from different grade levels at Jamestown High School took to Strider Field for Battle of the Classes Monday night for various games and activities, all to support a local women’s shelter. 

The students competed in 12 different events, ranging from a relay race, to tug-of-war, and a hula-hoop race. 

The competitors were separated into teams by grade level, and each student was sporting a unique costume. Rainbows, maids, dinosaurs, and fairies could all be seen on the field. 

The students participating in the events were cheered on by their fellow classmates, watching from the sidelines. 

While the Battle of the Classes is usually held indoors, this year was different. Students and spectators were invited to Strider Field to participate and watch the festivities. 

Battle of the Classes is a great way for students to have fun, interact with friends and peers, and let their competitive side shine through, but the event also doubled as a fundraiser. This year, the friendly battle accumulated $8,524.22 for the UCAN Women’s Shelter.
