The Dating Games

 

High school relationships are quite the interesting topic. Some people hate them, some people love them. Some may think they are stupid and pointless, while others might think they are adorable and valuable in a high school community. The hallways are always filled with couples talking and occasionally expressing P.D.A., so we decided to survey the school and find out who the favorite couple at Pella High is.

The list we constructed originally consisted of 40 couples and was brought down to a group of 16 couples that was chosen by our committee. From that point, the couples were randomly matched up and put to head-to-head competition. The bracket was made in a completely random fashion and eventually we arrived at a championship couple.

Payson Vande Lune & Kristin Rundle

Zach Vande Weerd & Macy Nossaman
