Athena, now with aphlaston

The 2011 Barnard Greek Games are just around the corner. Togas will be donned, flags will be captured, discuses will be thrown, togas will be tie dyed—in short, all the fanfare and festivities of ancient Greek athletics are on their way. But without its heroes, what is the Greece of antiquity? The Greek Games needs class captains. An email sent to students from The Greek Games Committee:

Do you want to lead your class to victory? We are looking for students from each year who would like to serve as class leaders during the games. Class captains will carry their class torches during opening ceremony and accept the trophy on behalf of the winning class! Interested? Think one of your friends would do a great job as class captain? Email with name, class year and email address!
