On Friday, Sept. 29, Brookewood celebrated its first festival day—Field Day, which was organized and supervised by Coach Jen Davern. This year, unlike some years in the past, the weather was in perfect condition—sunny and cool—for outdoor competitions. Students divided into their houses—Arundel, Bourbon, Custis and Darnall—and began the festivities with individual games such as Soccer Dribble and Potato Sack Race. After the individual games, each house captain—Francesca DeMarchi for Arundel House, Carolyn Wood for Bourbon House, Kaylor Stroot for Custis, and Andrea Preciado for Darnall House—led their teams in the House Events which included, Pass-the-Hoola-Hoop, Dodge Ball, Track Relay and the Team Cheer. Custis won both Pass-the-Hoola Hoop and the Team Cheer with a rendition of “We Will Rock You, ” while Arundel won Dodge Ball and the Track Relay. After all the points were tallied, Arundel came in first with 190 points, Darnall in second with 117, Bourbon in third with 99, and Custis in fourth with 96 points.
