Greers Win 82nd Tug Across the Harpeth
The Greers won the 82nd BGA Tug across the Harpeth River. Due to Covid restrictions, only seniors made the trip to the river for the traditional Tug. Ninth through 11th-grade students participated in grade-level Tugs at Guffee-Brown Stadium, which Platos won 3-0, before forming a spirit tunnel for the seniors’ send-off.
BGA’s annual tug-of-war is one of the largest and oldest tug-of-war competitions in the United States. The Platos lead the all-time Tug record with 41 wins. The Greers have now won 39 times and there are two ties (both happened when the rope broke).

Congratulations to the Greers!
