Just in case you weren’t able to make it to the Clash events on Tuesday or if you want a recap of everything that went down, here’s a quick summary of Day 2 of Clash of the Halls. The day started off with Twin Tuesday, where students coordinated matching outfits with their friends. Then, we had the Wii Sports Resort competition at midday and the Talent Show in the evening. The day ended with competitors scrambling to finish their Hall Murals by 10:00 PM.

Students gathered in the Old Cafe to cheer on two representatives from each hall as they battled it out in a game of Basketball in Wii Sports Resort. After an intense competition, Jakob Bachhausen (‘22) won 1st place for 1504 with 22 points, but Rachel Selvaraj (‘22) from 1503 was close behind with 20 points. 

Later that night, the Talent Show began at 7:15 PM with judges Andrea Stuiber, Jerami Johnson, and Grant Bell providing words of encouragement and constructive criticism. If you missed it, you can watch the live stream here.

1505 kicked off the show with a stunning musical performance by Jason Zhang (’20) and Jason Li (’20), which introduced a thrilling story of samurai androids.  Then, ‘01 stole the show with an entertaining heist mystery set in the wild west and solved by the charismatic sheriff Samantha Lazcano (’20). Next, TJ Ptak (’20) and Ian Fowler (’20) left the crowd cheering with an electric guitar performance during 1507’s spy-themed show. 1502 delivered a Willy-Wonka-based competition that included events in hula-hooping, singing, martial arts, and dancing. 

1504 followed with an eerie look into 404 Labs where a new employee Mark Ying (’21) gets pulled into their cyborg agenda. Up next, 1506 wowed the audience with a trip around the world in their airplane, visiting countries like Korea, China, India, the Philippines, and Mexico. Finally, 03 concluded the show with a journey to Neverland alongside Emily Jung (’22), an IMSA student anticipating her first day.
