Juniors Get Their Day In the Sun

JuniorOlympics1On Tuesday, May 21st, Scarsdale juniors were thrilled, following an assembly on college essay writing, to hear the announcement of Junior Olympics. Every year, juniors wait anxiously for the day they get to miss all afternoon classes to compete passionately for their elementary schools. Although the day of Junior Olympics is a surprise, students were prepared and decked out in beaded necklaces, colorful face paint, and elementary school apparel with personalized nicknames. As soon as the announcement was made over the loudspeakers, students ran to their cars to get ready with their friends. Events include trivia, tug of war, a pie eating contest, capture the flag and more.

Students also elect their captains, who are in charge of ordering shirts and have the honor of representing their schools in the pie eating contest. This year the captains were:
Quaker Ridge: Ariel Stern, Charlotte Kelson, Mark Ifrah, and Rishabh Gharekhan
Edgewood: Sophia Salazar, Maddie Amoriello, Zach Medvinsky, and Fisher Waterhouse
Greenacres: Michelle Singer, Jocelyn Lewis, Ben Kashar, and Teddy Constan
Fox Meadow: Bela George, Jess Solodar, Bohan Ma, and Andy Morin
Heathcote: Coco Dweck, Olivia Silberstein, Michael Callahan, and Sam Friedman

After hours of fierce competition, the winner was announced to be Fox Meadow Elementary School. The day was perfect for a renewed sense of camaraderie among classmates and the nostalgia of elementary school was a good escape from the stress of junior year.
