Spirit Weekend

One of the Nation's Longest-Running High School Rivalries

The tradition began at the turn of the 20th Century, with Episcopal High School winning the first-ever game against Woodberry Forest. More than a century later, their annual football game thrives, spirited with the rich tradition of competition. Alumni, parents, faculty, and students share in the fun of rooting our team to victory.

This season, the tradition continues with the 120th playing of The Game at Woodberry Forest School at 2:00 p.m. on November 13, 2021.
