No student left behind in Carlmont Cup

As the games continue on throughout October, more and more teams are eliminated. On Oct. 20, the last two teams of the winner’s bracket will play against each other and on Nov. 3, the last two teams of the loser’s bracket will play each other.

It’s all fun and games when it comes to Carlmont Cup.

The 2017 Carlmont Cup games have been going on for the majority of the school year and will continue until November. In one way or another, each and every student at Carlmont has the opportunity to play.

To determine the winner of Carlmont Cup, a grand tournament with many games is held where two teams compete against each other in each matchup. The team that wins advances on to the next round and the team that loses is moved to the loser’s bracket. A team is eliminated if they lose two games.

Various groups, ranging from football to Chess Club, participate in games against each other in the quad. The event brings all the students together, participating or not.

“There are so many things to love about Carlmont Cup. However, the thing that brings me the most joy is seeing groups from all around campus participate in a single event. People from different backgrounds and interests, all smiling and enjoying themselves,” said Sophomore Class President Joe Sison.

From obstacle courses to races to keeping balloons from hitting the ground, a new game is played each day.

“I believe they draw inspiration from classic, back pocket games and fan favorites, and invent their own games,” said Sison.

Many students that participate in Carlmont Cup agree with Sison, as they too believe that Carlmont Cup helps to bring the Carlmont community together.

Elena Moore, a sophomore, said, “My favorite part about Carlmont Cup is probably watching and participating in all the silly games.”

However, playing fun games and laughing is not the only reason people enjoy Carlmont Cup. The activities also allow people to grow as a team and are a huge draw for members to support each other in fun competition.

“I am able to represent the sport I am in at Carlmont in an activity that is not related to the sport. I also enjoy being able to be there for my team and cheering my teammates on,” said sophomore Hana Lip.

The school-wide activity is fun for both viewers and participants, allowing people to possibly step out of their comfort zone in participating in fun games, as well as providing entertainment at lunch.

“Carlmont Cup provides a fun, entertaining atmosphere to lunch for all those involved. Ideally, this helps everyone’s day become just a little better,” said Sison.
