Fifth annual ‘Sugar Bowl’ kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 25

The San Luis High School classes of 2019 and 2020 will clash on the gridiron in the annual “Sugar Bowl” flag football game on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m.

For the past five years SLHS Student Council has hosted the game, a friendly flag-football matchup between the junior and senior classes. The winning team not only earns bragging rights, but also a trophy signed by each player, with a permanent home in the SLHS Athletics Office.

In addition to being a “war of the cohorts,” the Sugar Bowl is also home to the Food Fest and the 2018 KECY Food Bowl canned food drive. The Food Fest is a Sugar Bowl tradition. Along with the $3 admission, attendees will get access to various food booths after the game. If a $3 admission is too steep, attendees are invited to bring two canned food items for a $1 discount on the admission fee. All canned food items collected with be added to the SLHS food drive numbers and donated to Crossroads Mission.

Halftime entertainment is scheduled to include the SLHS Band preforming, followed by the Snake Charmers, San Luis’ dance team.

Traditionally, the senior class has won this event. Last year, however, the junior class won for the first time in school history. Returning as seniors this year, the class of 2019 intends to repeat their victory. Led by Coaches Tim Rebek and Tim Rock, the seniors are prepped to defend their title.

Coaches for the juniors are Tim Morrison and Zachary Kelly. The class of 2020 will be fighting to claim their own spot in SLHS Sugar Bowl history.
