Every year on the last Saturday in February, the four Houses of Pierce Tower compete in a series of sporting events to determine which House is the One House to Rule Them All. This event, called "Sports Frolic", is a treasured Pierce tradition. Through smiles and tears, victory and defeat, and endless bad calls by the refs, Sports Frolic is a unique and beloved part of Pierce culture that will be sorely missed when the building is closed at the end of this year.
