The Red-Blue color competition is a long-standing tradition at Buckley. It began in 1935 with the first Red-Blue contest—at the time called Stunt Month—and has continued to this day. The Red team has won the yearly competition 44 times and the Blue team won 36. Students in grades 5-8 compete in various athletic contests such as soccer, basketball and “fun” games throughout the school year to earn points for their team. The competition culminates with a track and field meet in June called Field Day. The winner of Field Day as well as the yearly competition is announced at the annual Red-Blue Athletic Banquet.
