Day four of Fall Spirit Week meant Tourist Thursday and a Minute to Win It lunchtime competition on Nov. 2.

Junior Amanda DiBenedetto of Ocean enjoyed the different interpretations CHS students had of tourist day.

“My first tourist day at CHS was very crazy,” said DiBenedetto. “It’s really cool to see everybody dressed up.”

The sophomores won Thursday’s Scavenger Hunt followed by the freshmen in second, juniors in third and seniors in last.

For the lunchtime competition, Minute to Win It, four students from each grade competed in relay-style events, said junior and SGA council member Emma Hecht of Wall. Each team member competed in one event and if they made an error, that team member had to restart their game but the other teammates were not affected.

The juniors won the game, followed by the freshmen, seniors and sophomores in second, third and fourth respectively.

Junior Liam Marshall of Sea Girt competed as a member of the winning team.

“My strategy was to keep calm and to just do the best that I could,” said Marshall. “Honestly I didn’t expect to do that great and I ended up doing pretty well.”

Thursday was also the last day for Penny Wars and the only day to deduct points from other grades’ buckets. These results will be revealed on Friday.

Currently, the seniors are in first place with 195 points, the sophomores in second with 180 points, the juniors in third with 178 points and the freshmen in last with 125 points.
