Prep Latin students compete at Connecticut Latin Day...in togas!
SEE VIDEOS OF TUG OF WAR BELOW!
On May 3, twenty-nine Latin scholars, accompanied by Ms. Koren Mumma and Mr. Robert Bernier, attended the annual Connecticut State Latin Day at Holiday Hill. The gods smiled upon all with gorgeous weather and great times. When students were not enjoying the traditional breakfast nachos, never-ending lunch, and always popular arrival of the ice cream trucks, they took advantage of many of the day’s offerings. Students attended various workshops, including Ancient Weaponry and Laurel Wreath Making, and competed in academic testing in mythology and civilization. They also enjoyed ultimate Frisbee, basketball, volleyball, GaGa, miniature golf, canoeing, kayaking, serenading passersby, and looking for prom dates. Connor Davis ’14, R.J. Quigley ’14, and Mike Ruther ’14 took home 1st place ribbons and eternal glory for winning the soccer tournament. Finally, the 2013 Tug-of-War team, after advancing easily through the rounds and inspiring fear and admiration among all other competitors, suffered a shocking loss in the final round. Fortunately, not even this defeat could take away from what was most assuredly an excellent day.
