Prep prom dates cause conflicts

Mounties are upset about sharing senior prom night with Saint Joseph’s Prep
Prep+prom+dates+cause+conflicts

Prom is this Friday night, and it is surely going to be a night to remember for the senior class. However, many Mounties have been upset about having to choose between going to prom at the Mount or at Saint Joseph’s Prep, since they have been on the same night for the past several years.

According to Molly Maywood MSJA ‘24, who is on the prom committee, this year almost 20 girls decided to go to Prep’s prom instead of their own. Seniors recall it being difficult to find dates, and others report having arguments with their boyfriends over the issue of where to spend their night.

“Me and my boyfriend had to talk about it for like, a month and a half to try and figure it out,” says Sarah Klunk MSJA ‘24.

Despite all of this turmoil here at the Mount, the Prep boys don’t seem to be having the same difficulties.

“I’m actually bringing a Mount girl to Prep prom…I didn’t realize they were on the same night until I had already asked her,” says Abel Rupertus SJP ‘24.

While they don’t particularly share these troubles, the boys at the Prep empathize with the problems that Mount girls are facing.

“I think it’s a pretty bad situation, especially considering that Prep prom has been the same exact day for years on end. I feel like one of the two groups could probably change the date since they know each other so well,” says Troy Larkins-Johnson SJP ‘24.

When asked about this, Ms. Beren responded by saying that the Mount has tried to coordinate with the Prep and other surrounding area high schools on multiple occasions.

“In the end there’s only so many Fridays and Saturdays in the month, especially when so many of our private academies finish earlier than other schools. It’s hard to coordinate and make sure everybody knows that that date is a previously planned prom,” she said.
