On Monday night, College House Olympics came to a wild conclusion after a three-way tie between Boody-Johnson House, Reed House and MacMillan House. Each house had a 4-2 record after participating in six events. MacMillan was declared the winner for the second year in a row after defeating both Boody-Johnson and Reed in tie-breaking games of tug of war. The games were close, but MacMillan kept clear control of the rope during the majority of both its matches. Boody-Johnson then beat Reed in tug of war to take home the second place title.
IF YOU CAN DODGE A WRENCH…
A dodgeball match between Quinby House and Howell House came down to a one-on-one showdown after a first-year affiliate for Quinby seemed to single-handedly eliminate a majority of Howell’s players. All other houses gathered to watch the game, having already finished their own events. Several dodges, ducks, dips and dives later, the Quinby affiliate hit the last remaining Howell affiliate, cementing Quinby’s victory. Other dodgeball highlights included Boody-Johnson defeating Burnett twice in a row, and MacMillan and Boody-Johnson splitting their two-game series.
HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW, BABY?
Baxter House dominated Quinby House in the new “Guess that Sound” competition, which required house members and affiliates to identify various animal sounds or name a song after hearing its instrumental. Baxter member and self-proclaimed “Swiftie” Gabe Sarno ’25 struggled early when he failed to identify Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me.” Despite the embarrassing start, Sarno was able to recover and answer the rest of his questions correctly to help secure the win for Baxter. Fellow Baxter members defended Sarno by claiming that the song was, in all fairness, not “Taylor’s Version.”
