UMHB’s Stunt Night was held as a “drive-in” big screen experience at Crusader Stadium Friday night, Oct. 13.

The class of 2022 won the best overall production during this year’s stunt night competition, Friday, Nov. 13. It came to no surprise to anyone who watched their previous performance in the fall of 2019, during the “glitch-in-time” themed night. “Movies from the Eighties” was the official 2020 Stunt Night theme,  so there was no telling what route any of the classes would take. As it turned out, the freshmen went with “Ghostbusters,” the sophomores did “Breakfast Club,” the juniors did a UMHB take on “Farris Bueller’s Day Off,” and lastly, the seniors did “Footloose.”

            Neither the change in venue, nor COVID-19 restrictions changed the atmosphere of Stunt Night. Despite the event being held on the football field with chairs placed six feet apart, there was still that sense of wonder for what the students were able to put together under these trying times. For a couple of hours on a chilly November night the audience could forget about the pandemic and focus on the amazing and jaw-dropping performances of not just the victorious junior class, but also the seniors, who just enjoyed the last Stunt Night of their college careers. The sophomore class also seemed to learn from last year and made improvements to every aspect of this year’s performance. The freshmen came in and showed their stuff and left many curious to see how they can improve on such an amazing showing next year.
