EA sows complication into schedule

Cole Stecker ’20

     EA is scared. After our overwhelming victory last year, EA may have decided to use any available tactics to impede our conquest. I am of course referring to EA’s decision to have golf and cross country happen at the same time.

     This departure from the usual EA Day schedule must be in response to last year. The previous EA Day saw the greatest showing of Haverford students in recent memory, as the event was held during school hours and all students were allowed to attend.

     The mayhem that ensued was magical. Rows filled with cheering Haverford students were without a doubt a major factor in our narrow victory. And it is likely for this reason that EA has decided moved cross country and golf to the same time slot. 

I understand why EA made the change, and I think in the short term it is a smart move, but it will not end well for them.

     EA really wants to win the sweater this year. Their decision to sow conflict between the sports is meant to split the student sections. EA thinks this will help them win, but in reality it will only make our students feistier during water polo, soccer, and football. I understand why EA made the change, and I think in the short term it is a smart move, but it will not end well for them. We will, of course, win EA Day this year, and the student section will be especially fired up. Our senior class is already one of the most, dare I say, “rowdy” classes to ever pass through the school, and their spirits will only grow more enraged with EA’s attempts to silence them.

     Good luck EA, you’re going to need it.
