Upper and Middle School Field Days 2017

Physical education teacher David Watson organized the third annual Panther games at Randall's Island on April 17. Three teams participated in various events and activities throughout the day, with the Red team winning for the second consecutive year! His report follows:

"The day closely followed last year's event, starting with a human pyramid race involving all members of all three teams, followed by running events. Tug of war, beanbag toss, a potato sack race and a wheelbarrow race gave the teams more chances to accumulate points. After lunch the captains of the teams rallied their members in three team sports, including soccer, modified softball and touch football, with points added to each team's morning scores. Wonderful weather added to the pleasure of this much-anticipated event!" 

On April 24, the Middle School boys ventured out to Randall's Island for their Field Day. Coach Michael Cohn reports: "We were blessed with superb weather, enormous amounts of enthusiasm and a great deal of fun. The morning events included various track and field activities, tug-of-war, relay races and a football throwing competition. After two exciting hours of play, the boys enjoyed a picnic pizza lunch and then proceeded to participate in any activity of their choice, including soccer, kickball, touch football and capture the flag. In an extremely close competition, the Orange team was victorious with a valiant effort put forth by their competitors. A great day of competition and fun was had by all, and Middle School Field Day 2017 was a huge success! Go, Panthers!"
