Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
We finished off a good week with wins over North Allegheny and Cornell. We met our goal of breaking 200 despite shooting our highest score of the year with a 195 as no one went low for us for the first time all year. Always a readjustment with the first week of tests and papers so I am pleased with the work effort the guys are putting forth in both areas.
