The student athletes all pushed themselves to the limit. And when the final results were in, two stood out among the rest: Taking first place in the men’s category, Xavier G. finished his run at a blinding 39.43 seconds. Elizabeth V. took first in the women’s category at 44.59 seconds.
Hot and tired from all their exertion, the runners were in need of a way to cool off, which the prefects kindly provided. Nearby, just outside St. Thérèse Hall, they had set up a slip-n-slide! Students glided down the hill in the soapy water, laughing with delight as they sped past familiar faces. “It was a hit!” exclaimed prefect Meg Murphy (’22).
