Wish Week Day 3: Wednesday







Put on your game faces, the jerseys are going on. Mountain Vista dressed up in their favorite jerseys from different teams and places, coming together in Unified, baseball and Powderpuff games.

The day kicked off with a flurry of colors, ranging from Patriot blue to Red Sox red. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors flooded the halls, some stopping by the library to make pins for Rynn. The pins are student-made and librarian-pressed, clipped on to a stuffed animal that will be given to Rynn by the end of this week.

The Mountain Vista field, however, saw a different kind of running. The movie “Spiderman: Homecoming” starring Tom Holland, ran from 7:30-9:30 a.m. on top of the field. 

“It went perfectly.” Gavin White, 10, said. Students bundled up in blankets and sweats, making like Spiderman and sticking to the screen. 

Right before the Spiderman movie made its debut on the Mountain Vista field, Powderpuff had just begun. Senior vs. junior girls wearing green (seniors) and white (juniors) competed to win this year during Wish Week. Seniors beat out juniors in a 6-0 game. Also on the field competed, the always beloved man-poms came to wow the crowd with seniors dancing to songs like Sharpay Evans’ “Fabulous” from “High School Musical.”

In other sports-related news, varsity baseball won against Rocky Mountain High School this Wish Week Wednesday. Sam Krysa, 12, ran a home run and several others hit balls over the fence or clipped the fence. A spectacular win for the Mountain Vista team: Congratulations Mountain Vista Eagles!

While the games are why people left their houses, many stayed out later because of the various food options around. In support of Wish Week, several food venues have let Mountain Vista do some Wish Week fundraising. Places like Mici, Coldstone, Crumbl Cookies, Highlands Ranch 5 and Firehouse Subs all supported the cause and helped Rynn and many others get their wish.
