Under the gleam of glow sticks, hues of neon and violet welcomed students to the big gym for the annual black light pep rally on Friday, Nov. 8. Treated to performances from the SunDancers, breakdance club, and a variety of other groups on campus, energy was high, as the latest achievements of the Warrior student body were celebrated to cap off an eventful second six weeks. 

Opening the show was Warrior Pride, as they performed to an exciting medley of rap to get the crowd going. K-Pop club then lit up the bleachers with an electrifying, intricate rendition of “Jopping” by SuperM. 

“We’re always excited for the black-light pep rally because we get to glow. It really emphasizes the movements,” Jeong Mi Choo ‘20 said. 

Decked out in fluorescent paint and tape, SunDancers blew everyone away with a hip hop number to a mix of popular rap, including the likes of Drake, Future, A$AP Ferg, and more. Even in the dark, the cheerleaders managed to rally school spirit with an energy filled routine. 

“I like that it changes something up. We do different routines, but this one in particular has something about that brings excitement,” Ryan Ejuma ‘21 said. 

Several student athletes were recognized for their stellar performances this season, particularly cross country runners Deepti Choudhary ‘21 and Pablo Lomeli ‘21, both who qualified for coveted spots at the UIL State meet this past October. 

Closing out the rally was the breakdance club, demonstrating their impressive synchronization through a medley of different styles. 

“I thought it was a lot of fun seeing everyone and their glow sticks. I loved how confident each part was, K-Pop was amazing,” Sandy Trang ‘23 said.
