Cross Country Invitational Gets the Year Up and Running
A warm wind wasn't the only thing pushing over 350 runners onward at Tuesday evening's annual OES Cross-Country Invitational! Seventeen different teams (including some that had never fielded an XC team before!) from around the region competed in four different races: the Middle School boys' and girls' 3,000 meters and the Upper School boys' and girls' 5,000 meters.
As for your Aardvarks, they had great showings in every race: the Middle School boys' and girls' teams both won their meets, while the two Upper School teams took the second place accolades.
Individual highlights included Wylly W. '22 finishing third out of 91 runners, Tucker B. '22 taking second in a field of 101, Jack C. '18 coming in second among 120 other runners, and Stephanie F. '19 crossing the finish line in third out of 66 total Upper School girls.
Well done to our fleet-footed athletes!
Our Upper School Debate team has had some stellar successes lately!
Last week young adult novelist Adam Silvera spoke to our Upper School community about everything from the craft of writing to explorations of identity.
Recently Ms. Duden's fifth-grade class clambered into canoes and set off to paddle around the wetlands . . . and then encountered something entirely unexpected.
What do you get when you add 10 Middle School Math Club members, the hours of a Saturday morning, and four different rounds of mathematical competitions? That would be the OES Math Meet!
