Last Saturday wrapped up an intense week in which the greatest prep school rivalries were put on display. In the week leading up to it, the prep school community tossed insults left and right at their most hated opposition, and while the real battle was on the playing fields, a small victory was to be won in the comment sections, on the meme pages, on “psych cards”, and even on the bed sheets. In this article Twines and Vines will be recapping each rivalry day, while also reviewing the trash talk and meme wars preceding it. Note: there were some controversies with the results this weekend, as some schools have disparities in their scoring system.
Andover vs Exeter:
This Rivalry may be the only one to compete with Choate and Deerfield, but it is certainly the oldest among prep schools. This year Andover came out victorious, with a clean 4-0-1 win overall. Surprisingly, what appeared to be the most hype game of the day was volleyball, while Andover won 3-0, the stands were completely filled with blue and red, with the noise reaching a ridiculous level for a volleyball game. The sole tie came from Girls Varsity soccer, which ended 2-2. Andover varsity football came out with a big 14-0 win, another highlight of the day.
