ZAPP! Strikes Eastview High School
At the school pep fest on November 30, 2000, Eastview's new school mascot
was introduced to the student body. ZAPP! was donated to Eastview High
School by the senior class of 2000 and Student Council.
After Mr. Henry's introduction, ZAPP! rode into the
gym on a motorcycle with Timberwolves mascot Crunch. Click on the

Zapp! and Crunch worked together to pump up the crowd. At
the end of the pep fest, ZAPP! dunked a basketball and disappeared back
into the electrical room to get ready for his next appearance. Click

MEET THE MASCOT: ZAPP!
On September 2, 1997 Eastview High School held its first day of school. The
entire school went “bolt” crazy. The energy throughout the school
was so electrifying that lightning struck the building late that evening. The
bolt of lightning left enough electricity to create an electrical surge in
one of the electrical rooms. Unseen by anyone for 3 1/2 years, the bolt began
to change, taking the form of a human lightning bolt. ZAPP! was now half human
and half bolt. Its’ purpose here is to help lead the Eastview Lightning
to victory by charging them up and entertaining fans at our home games. ZAPP!
believes in his mission at the finest high school in the state.
