On Thursday October 11th, the Aggies and Collegiate 4-H groups held their annual Barn Yard Olympics. To compete in the Olympics, participants needed to have teams consisting of five people. With an increase in participants this year, there were a total of four teams that competed. The Barnyard games consisted of sack races, straw stacking, roping, an egg toss, and an obstacle course which included a tire flip, human wheel-barrow race, a four-person ski race, milk chug, and a pedal tractor race.
“Even though there were a small number of teams, we had a great time and it was all thanks to the officer team,” stated Aggies’ President, Josh Keith. While there were four teams, prizes were given to the top three teams.
“I would like to give a special thanks to the Aggies’ Vice President, Alexis Moser,” says Keith. Alexis was the Barnyard Olympics’ committee chair, and she donated a large amount of time to the event.
“The event ran smoothly thanks to Alexis’ hard work,” Keith explains. President Keith also wanted to add, “A very special thanks to the Wilmington College Farm for donating the straw and to Delta Theta Sigma Fraternity for the help with the roping event.”
