The sophomores primarily spent their class trip, Oct. 4-Oct. 7, at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch in Quincy horseback riding and playing games, like horse shoes, volleyball, pool and fuseball. The sophomores were divided into four groups: Rebels, Outlaws, Bandits and Renegades. The groups rode horses, had free time and completed a scavenger hunt in different shifts.
