The Villa’s track team ran at Bedford yesterday. Our team is small, but our spirit and talent are enormous: most teams have over one hundred athletes, while ours has just seventeen. This was our first meet of the season.
The Villa took first place in two of twelve events while breaking two Villa track and field records. Oliver Thomas jumped his way to first place in the 100-meter hurdles while breaking his own school record. He then ran the 100-meter dash, taking first place again and taking the school record by more than one-third of a second. Usain Bolt holds the world record at 9:58, and Oliver is just 3.06 seconds away. Nice running!
Our relay team of Oliver Thomas, Alex Mangini, Peter Theodoulou, and Max Syversen are closing in on breaking the Villa record. Our boys are a mere one second away. The meet also featured standout performances by Julianna Trost in the 400-meter dash, Vivien Merryfield in the discus, and Maggie Fifield in the 800-meter dash. Go Villa!

Need a little extra motivation to keep your New Year’s Resolutions going strong? Come to the Villa’s Community Health and Safety Fair on Sunday, January 27 from 12 PM-4 PM for an afternoon of fun activities that will get you and your family excited about living a healthy life in the new year! Activities include karate, massages, rock climbing, snowshoeing, raffles, door prizes, fingerprinting, facepainting, dance, and more! There are activities for all ages, with lots to learn and explore! Click here for more info.
We’re also in need of volunteers for the fair. We need adults to monitor the snowshoeing events, monitor the rock wall, and to do facepainting. (Junior high students may also wish to get involved with facepainting!) We can also use donations of prepackaged goodies (store-bought, nut/peanut-free, with labels) for our bake sale. We could also use assistance setting up and cleaning up before and after the event. Finally, any donations for our raffle would be much appreciated.
If you can help in any capacity, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see a great turnout from the school to support our local vendors!
