Ladybugs Feast on Warthogs in Annual Pigskin Classic

The annual Ladybug – Warthog football game was held under blue skies last Friday in front of a record setting crowd of students, alumni and parents.

The Warthogs, who signed former Ladybug head coach Mr. Spence as a free agent during the off season, entered the game confident they could squish their opponents.

But former Ladybug standout player and now first-year coach Mr. Zlatos (HFA ’10) vowed that the Ladybugs would make the Warthogs squeal.

In a hard fought game that saw both teams move the ball up an down the field, the Ladybugs pulled away in the last quarter to record a 34-18 victory!

After the game, families enjoyed a fantastic spaghetti dinner organized by the booster club.

Warthogs vs. Ladybugs and Spaghetti Supper tomorrow!

Tomorrow at 2:15pm, the Warthogs will play the Ladybugs in what seasoned critics are calling the Image 2014-10-23 at 5.52.13 PMmatch-up of the century. Coaching prodigy Eric Zlatos (HFA class of ’10) is pushing his Ladybug team to the limit, hoping to recapture his own glory days on our field. The Warthogs are led by grizzled pragmatist Patrick Spence, who coached last year’s Ladybugs to an undefeated 1-0 season but notoriously clashed with the team’s corporate management, going so far as to demand a stipend while praying before games. Mr. Spence announced over the summer that the Warthogs’ Booster Club President, Pumbaa Clune, had made him a generous offer.

The Ladybugs will be eager to avenge that desertion, much like the citizens of Athens after Alcibiades’ defection to Sparta during the Peloponnesian War. But can their indignation overcome the pinpoint

Come by at 2:15 for the game, or show up for the Spaghetti Supper at 5 to congratulate the victors! Please RSVP to Kathy Dean if you plan to make dinner.
