Thirteen hundred students rolled into the gym Friday after lunch, donning their class colors, face paint, hair dye, bandannas, and inspired costumes of all types, ready to take down all comers in the grand finale to Spirit Week. The 2016 Whittier Tech Pep Rally saw teachers and students ripping their muscles in a class vs. class pull-up contest; others demonstrated their skills in a flip bottle contest and the noise, noise, noise could be heard for miles. Our talented cheerleaders whipped the crowd into a frenzy as the fall sports teams were introduced and took laps around the crowded floor. The Senior Class, with clapping air bats and big, big voices, stole the show and were named the victors. But everyone played a part, making it a memorable day in Wildcat Country.
