The Second Annual St. Pius X Chariot Race
March 29th, 2011
The Second Annual St. Pius X Chariot Race was held Tuesday, March 29 at Maloof Stadium. Students from Susan Belmonte’s Latin III Honors class put on a fabulous display of engineering ability, athletic prowess and unique creativity as they raced toward victory and the laurel wreath crowns. Students were broken into five factions: The Golden Snitch, The White Lion, The Fast and the Furious, The Smurfin’ Smurfs and The Godly Green Gorgeous Gang; each creating their own chariot. One person from the group was designated as the charioteer while two others acted as “horses.” Students from many classes came to cheer on their friends as they raced around the track in two heats. The first heat was a tough race between the white, red and gold factions, where team White Lion prevailed. The second heat was a close race until the final turn where the blue faction lost their charioteer and the green team was able to pull ahead. At the final heat, “Albus Leo” (translated “White Lion) and the Godly Green Gorgeous Gang fought a tough race to the finish, with the white faction prevailing.
