Spudders end year with silly ‘Olympics’



Ridgefield — Ridgefield High School’s “Spudder Olympics” on May 31 added some silliness to the standard end-of-the-school-year festivities. The graduating class of 2013 and others celebrated the beginning of summer with wacky events that included Human Bowling and Competitive Food Eating. More than 150 students and a handful of teachers took part in the yearly event, which culminated in a championship tug of war competition. “The leadership class always impresses me with their ability to organize complex events like the Spudder Olympics,” said leadership teacher Kim Allais in a press release.
