89th Annual Track & Field Meets - DELTEIA 2017

The 89th Junior High – High School Track & Field Meets, “Delteia 2017,” were held on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.  The student percussion band, in its own distinctive fashion, opened the ceremonial part of the event.  The Presidents of the Athens College and Psychico College Student Communities reminded us of the “Pledge” the students made prior to the Delteia games.

 

During the ceremonial program, all student members of the “A” Association, as well as all students competing in the finals, paraded around the track.  Leading the procession was the Hellenic Police Band, which always honors us with its presence. 

After raising the flag, singing the national anthem and placing a wreath in memory of College Founding Father Stephanos Delta, Mr. Alexandros Samaras, President of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic-American Education Foundation, declared the games open.

 

The Delteia games took place in the presence of all Junior High and High School students, parents and friends of the College, who, with great satisfaction, watched the competition between grades in their struggle for the highest Overall Score.  With 178 points, the winner was the 11th grade.   Earning 836 points for his performance in the High Jump (1,94 meters), Nikolas Tzougkarakis was the male student with the best performance; the female with the best performance was Emmanouela-Sevasti Karyampa who scored 915 points for her performance in the 100 meter Dash (12”33).
