Women Pay All dance [Slideshow]

WPA or Women Pay All dance was held Feb. 13 in the cafeteria. Traditionally, girls ask guys to WPA, a trend that began with the first Sadie Hawkins dance in 1938.

Sadie Hawkins was a character in the comic strip Li’l Abner, which was published in newspapers from 1934 to 1977. Nov. 13 was designated Sadie Hawkins Day in the comic. It was a day where girls could chase the bachelors around town and marry the ones they caught.

Bambi Pachimsawat, an exchange student from Thailand was crowned Queen of Courts at the basketball game on Feb. 12, and Steve Carver was crowned King of Courts at the dance on Saturday night.
