Sophomore John Luu lined up on the field. His right foot was tied up to his friend, senior Anna Wilder’s left with a blue cloth. He wore pants that day with a button-up shirt. As they hobbled into place the referee started counting down. They were ready to race.
That was when things came tumbling down for Luu.
“The three-legged race was one of the funniest moments of the day for me,” he said. “Anna Wilder persuaded me to run it with her. We originally had a plan to run in an organized pattern but she decided to ignore the plan and start sprinting, so now I have a grass stain on my pants because of her.”
The three-legged race was just one of the many activities during Blue Ribbon Day on Feb. 8. Sophomore Danyol Goldberg spent most of his time watching a movie and hanging out with friends.
“I liked playing games with my friends,” Goldberg said. “The movie was interesting and I liked just sitting in the air conditioning joking with my friends and not worrying about class or anything.”
