It was a great first day of the city Olympiad. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the wind was blowing. Down on the fields boys from all parts of Texas gathered as teams to come as one and compete in many different activities, also know as sports. This is possibly the most heated part of Boys State, heads are butted and threats are made. The young statesman has the opportunity to compete in any of the four sports available (Speed Ball, Dodgeball, Basketball and Track). On Monday evening, multiple ankles were broken on the courts (figuratively of course). There were clearly dominant teams, and some were left scrambling to get even a few points by the end of the games.
The Olympiad concluded four hours later, showing the competitive nature of the Statesmen. After a long hard day of competition everyone congregated in the quad to end the day. Many of the Statesmen are looking forward to the next days of the Olympiad and are hoping to be the champions of the various activities.
