What a way to end a 46-year career. It was written in the stars for coach Bill McQuade and The Hun School baseball team.

Students in Allan Arp’s Middle School Design Class conducted a Shoe Design Contest last week. They constructed shoes out of cardboard and tested them. Each student wore his or her shoes for an entire school day. Students were eliminated from the contest as their shoes broke down. By 2:00 p.m. only two students remained. Craftsmanship, engineering and comfort played a role in the success of each design. Ultimately Khushi Agrawal '21 prevailed and won the contest!
