A Mario Kart themed race ran through campus at the last Homeroom Olympics event of the year today. In a tightly contested group race, teacher Angela Vazquez-Herrera’s homeroom took first place, leaving them at the top overall. The Homeroom Olympics committee named them the winner of the Homeroom Olympics competition Friday at the farewell assembly.

Students worked in teams of five, one member of the group placed at switch points along the course.

With homemade cardboard carts like the ones seen in the popular Wii game, sprinting students started out from the PAC. They ran to the target shoot, where they had to throw three “turtle shells,” (water bottles in socks) into the target holes. Once finished, they sprinted to tag the next member of their team, teammate two, near the front office.

The next member of the team ran through a set of “banana peels” (orange cones) in a zig zag weave, before switching with their next partner, teammate three, behind the 10s building. That team member ran from the 20s buildings to the 110s buildings. Once at the back of the learning commons, they popped a balloon with teammate four by squeezing it between them in a hug.

When running through the course, teammate four was blasted with colored chalk through the stairs to the shops. The final switch with teammate five offered two options, following the main path or a special shortcut. Once the final teammate arrived at the PAC finish point, the rest of the members of their homeroom gave them a big cinnamon roll hug.

Throughout the course, member of the homeroom olympics committee had placed mystery boxes. These boxes, which contestants picked up while sprinting, earned bonus points for their homeroom. The pieces they collected were then turned in at the end of the race to be counted.

The overall winner of Homeroom Olympics will be announced at the farewell assembly, according to Assistant Principal Jeanne Jones.
