Eagles Wellness Challenge results

Congratulations to the Swag Masters for taking first place in the fourth annual Eagles Wellness Challenge, a six-week challenge that ran from March 5 through April 15. Team members included Jordan Bratzke, Alyssa Costa, Taylor Munson, Haley Busman, and Aastha Patel. They earned the most points in the contest, which aims to encourage participants to balance their lives in five categories: nutritional, physical, intellectual, social, and emotional/spiritual wellness.

The second place team was The Tricksters 2.0, formed by Liberty Barry, Sophie Ross, Adam Hartzer, Corina Szabados, and Emma Koesser. The top student individual participants were Samantha Schild, Katy Sherin, and Jocelyn Rodriguez. The top staff member individual participants were Emily Goldkind, Tyler Reimer, Gina Putka, and Rebecca Holst.

Participants tracked their wellness and earned points using an app called GooseChase. They earned milestone prizes after achieving a certain amount of points, and they were entered into a weekly raffle for a prize. The top teams and individuals won grand prizes. Prizes included tickets to athletic events and museums, passes to fitness centers, gift cards to restaurants, and more.
