The annual Midnight Madness took off on Oct. 10 at California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) Otter Sports Complex in a celebratory fashion for promoting school spirit and support of the athletic teams.
This year’s theme was “Halloween Night” and proved itself true with spooky costumes of skeletons, ghost decorations hanging from the ceiling, and glow in the dark jack-o-lanterns. The boisterous night was filled with loud music and included performances by Monte Rey dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
There were free giveaways such as T-shirts, AirPods, a laptop and a CSUMB swag basket. The Otter Dance Team made a lovely performance worthy of an encore. All of the campus’ sports teams were present: including the men’s and women’s basketball team, women’s and men’s soccer teams, and the Otter softball team. They made an entrance into the gym stadium for encouragement of successful seasons.
There was a performance by the Swinging Otters, who danced in a style reminiscent of the 1930s and 1940s. It concluded with a homecoming-style dance, complete with classic songs such as “Cupid Shuffle.”
Remember to support the teams for school spirit and lots of fun! Go Otters!
