|showing off his red jersey|
One morning Ben sent us a message that their department head invited him to become part of their department basketball team. We're all happy because we value sports as well as academics. We thought it was a good one time chance for him to play for the sportsfest but it turned out that he's officially in, not just for one game. He was so happy to tell us that he's got his own jersey, too!
So he practiced and played... and won!
His team won second place in basketball but he also played American football and tug of war. The International Studies department which, as Ben wrote, "the weakest when it comes to athletic games" surprisingly got the golden trophy and they were declared the overall champions. He's got his gold medal, and we all cheer for him and his team!
