Field Day Honors the Memory of Beloved Teachers - Homeroom 10D Crowned as Champions
The 13th Annual Field Day at La Salle College High School was held on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 in honor of Fran Johnson, Mary Jo Smith, Rob Russell, and Frank Lichtner - four beloved members of the faculty who succumbed to their battles with cancer. Despite cooler temperatures, the day once again featured spirited competition, notable sportsmanship, and many smiles and laughs.

Homerooms competed against each other in over three dozen events taking place simultaneously in four areas of the campus. Some of the most popular events included the tricycle race, a Gerber baby food eating contest, a three-legged race, and dodge ball. The winning homerooms were 1A (Freshmen), 10B (Sophomores), 7C (Juniors), and 10D (Seniors). In the tug-of-war, 1A upset 10B in the first round, but lost to 7C in the semifinals. Homeroom 10D, led by their teacher, Mr. Dan Cipolla, defeated 7C in the finals and were crowned as the Overall Champions.
Organized by the Office of Student Affairs and the Student Council, Field Day has become one of the most anticipated traditions at La Salle as it brings together students, faculty, and staff in an effort to build relationships, promote school spirit, participate in school extracurricular activities, and simply take pleasure in healthy competition and each other's company.
