“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.”
