As the end of the 17-18 school year approaches, the seniors are participating in enjoyable, traditional events that happen at Academy such as Water Wars, Grad Bash, and the running of the halls and pool party. Every spring, a majority of the graduating class participates in a student-run game called Water Wars.

The teams, organized by homeroom, typically get other classmates out by splashing them with a water gun. This allows more inclusivity and larger teams, creating a more difficult and diverse competition.

  • Beth Chase – Aquaholics Anonymous
  • Anne Wynn – All We Do Is Wynn
  • Virginia Pendelton – Super Soaker
  • Dana Nazaratian –How I Wet Your Mother
  • Jenny Van Pelt – Jenny With a Glock

At the beginning of the war, “celebrity shots” were determined by girls who have left Academy throughout the four years of high school for the class of 2018. 

Cydney Figueroa (’18) shot celeb, Emily Edbrooke who left after sophomore year, in order to get Katherine Hahn back in business.

Nazaretian’s team won the tournament with 21 kills, followed by Chase with 18 kills, Pendleton with 12, Mikos with 9, and VP lost with only 8 points. Overall, Water Wars allowed the class to participate in a fun activity before their last few days on campus.
