TOWSON, Md. — The gym was hopping on Friday night at Notre Dame Prep School in Towson as the school held their 90th Gym Meet.

The tradition started back in 1929, an inter-class competition completely run by the students. Each class comes up with a march, a song, and aerobics routine and a dance routine.

The students pick leaders, and a theme with a routine that they put all on the hardwood floors.

"I think because it's a student run activity. I think that there's so much hands on learning. When we look at our use of social media today I think it's really taken out the empathy in communication with somebody and so we bring a lot of that hands on learning back and walk them through it," said Mary Bartel, Chairperson of Physical Education.

They're competing for the silver cup and 99 percent of the time the seniors take it home.
