The St. Luke’s Middle School Field Day made a triumphant return to the Hilltop on Tuesday, June 8, with all MS students taking part in the fun.
The event was a scorching success, with teams competing in the sun in nine different challenges. Organized by Associate Athletic Director Jennifer Besgen, events included a relay race, basketball toss, egg and spoon race, putt-putt and 50-yard, water bucket challenge, potato sack race, water balloon toss, inflatable soccer darts, and an inflatable boot camp obstacle course.
The fifth and sixth grades were first to test themselves in the morning challenges, followed by the seventh and eighth-grade students in the afternoon.
Students were divided into teams and, with help from their team leaders, made their way around the different events competing against each other.
Besgen was delighted with how the day went: “While other schools were canceling their field days, we made sure we kept ours as we know how much it means to the students. Despite the change in structure this year, the students and faculty brought the same high energy, excitement, and enthusiasm as in previous years. I am so happy our students could come together to have fun while supporting their friends and teammates.”
