ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Aberdeen Central High School is cracking down on a messy homecoming tradition that involves eggs, with the help of some students and one store in the community.

For decades, Central students have continued a tradition of throwing eggs during homecoming week. Superintendent Gary Harms tells the American News that officials have worked to curb egg-throwing this year, and he’s aware of only a couple of incidents.

The South C Convenience Store is temporarily selling eggs only to adults, though other food stores in the city aren’t taking any measures.

Harms says the Student Senate is working with the school administration to try to eliminate the tradition, producing public service announcements for local radio stations urging students to fry — rather than fly — eggs.
