"The Panther Games" Kick Off a New Tradition at Upper School Field Day

David Watson, physical education teacher, reports that a new format for Upper School Field Day turned out to be a huge success!

He offers the following wrap-up: The boys, divided into three color teams with two senior captains in charge, were challenged to compete in running events, teamwork events and group games. Points scored were tabulated during the day at Randall's Island. The team with the highest points total was awarded a trophy that will then be handed down to the winners next year. Thus, "The Panther Games" were initiated for the first time and will hopefully be the start of a new school tradition!

A full team puzzle race started the games, followed by the running events consisting of a 60, 400, 1500 and 4x200 meter relay. Then came tug-of-war, Frisbee target throw, potato sack race and wheel barrow race. After a pizza lunch the teams played soccer, modified softball and touch football. The three teams were named Red, White and Black, which are Browning's colors. After some wonderful close competitions, the Black team edged out the White by 10 points, 134 -124.
