Deer Park students enjoy smashing pumpkins

Students at Deer Park High School practiced for a pumpkin-hurling competition Tuesday. The students used a modern version of a trebuchet to launch pumpkins. The students compete every year for distance and accuracy, and they enjoy learning how to work together as a team. Videojournalist: Chris Ware (Oct. 22, 2013)
