Classes and even some staff members squared off Nov. 21 in the annual Crazy Games held at Amherst Steele High School. In what’s become a pre-Thanksgiving break tradition, assistant athletic director Dave Zvara took up master of ceremonies duties as students raced across the floor in sack races. In a hilarious event, they unfolded frozen T-shirts, pulled them on, and made a mad dash back toward classmates.
