On May 1, thirty-four Latin scholars, accompanied by Ms. Koren Mumma and Mr. Robert Bernier, attended the annual Connecticut State Latin Day at Holiday Hill. Clad in tunics of their own design, students fueled up with breakfast nachos and donuts before taking advantage of the day’s wide range of activities. Those hungry for knowledge attended various workshops and presentations, such as “Ancient Astronomy,” “Legal Latin,” “Roman Soldierly,” “Botany,” “Women in Ancient Rome,” “Calligraphy,” and “Bees and Honey.” Many enjoyed meeting Latin scholars from other schools and playing soccer, basketball, badminton, horseshoes, miniature golf, and the ever-popular Ga-ga. Our own Paul Cashman ’15 took on countless competitors and emerged victorious, albeit slightly battered, from the Ga-ga pit. Zach Hamar ’16, Kevin Lichtenfels ’16, Dan Krischlunas ’16, Gianni Leito ’16, Calvin Reed ’16, Tony Fidaleo ’16, Michael Antonico ’17, Matt Dilks-Anderson ’17, Shawn Matthews ’17, Will Marshall ’17, and Jack Llewellyn ’18 ably coached by Ryan Conway ’16 dominated on the soccer field, representing Prep and any schools that failed to show up for their time slots. Students also spent time canoeing, kayaking, and avoiding swimming in the lake. Of course, all activities halted upon the arrival of the ice cream trucks, whereupon students relaxed with frozen treats before boarding the bus for the journey home.
