“P-u-r-p-l-e, that’s how we spell victory,” and “Orange you glad we are going to win,” were among the many cheers heard in the courtyard during the third annual Color Wars on Feb. 16.

Color Wars was a tradition first created three years ago and has since become an annual Archer event.

Every student dresses up and decorates the courtyard with their grade’s assigned color. The competitions included a relay race, tug-of-war and a mural contest.

The Class of 2018 defended their title, winning the overall award for the second year in a row. The seniors used the slogan “Purple Reign.”

    I really like how the video was informative and gave examples of everything in color wars. Maybe next time put a little more of the information in the article itself.
