Cheerleaders and football players and National Honor Society students — oh, my! — joined forces to scare the pants off of Haunted Halls attendees at the fourth annual spooky event at Two Harbors High School on Friday, Oct. 26.

Students donned creepy masks, used bottles of fake blood and transformed the high school halls into creepy themed zones for the walkthrough.

"Our themes change every year," organizer and cheerleading coach Melanie Ross said. "We always get suggestions from people and we start buying creepy things whenever they're on sale to prepare."

Some of the themes this year included a black forest, a zombie zone, The Purge and a cult section.

Funds raised from Haunted Halls go toward cheerleading uniforms, conference T-shirts for football players and the general NHS fund. The event always takes place the weekend before Halloween, which almost always lands on the same weekend as football playoffs.

"The football players will have to go home right away at 9:30 to try and get some sleep before they play in the big game at 1 p.m. tomorrow. We wish it didn't always end up at the same time, but more often than not, it happens," Ross said.
