After seniors Bill Peters and Brenden Kevelighan won the Charity Tailgate Cornhole Tournament, a mob of students surrounded them, echoing “Beat the Creek” over and over again. 

Adams’ National Honors Society hosted a charity tailgate at Stoney Creek high school on Friday, October 25th.

“This was the first tailgate hosted by Adams’ NHS, and we just really wanted it to be successful. I think that the Cornhole Tournament helped accomplish that,” said one of the junior NHS ambassadors, Allen Zhu.

The tailgate had many activities to do including a rock climbing wall, a tour of a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, food trucks, and the crown jewel of the entire event, the cornhole tournament. The tournament was setup so students who qualified would play kids from their own school, leading to an Adams vs. Stoney matchup in the final.

The cornhole championship was as intense as it gets, and in the end, the Adams’ seniors narrowly beat Stoney’s finalists. 

“Those two just really knew how to toss the bag. Consistency won them that tournament. Very well deserved W,” stated spectator Jack Stanley.

The cornhole tournament was not the only win for Adams that evening, with the football team winning 21-14 over the Cougars. The first NHS organized tailgate was a huge success, exceeding expectations in their charity efforts, and starting a new tradition at Adams.
