When Round 2 of the Octathlon of Champions concluded today, Jack Scott had leapfrogged from last place to 2nd.
The sophomore won the overall event — a FIFA Xbox tournament — worth 10 points. He added another 5 for allowing the least number of goals.
The Octathlon — open to all returning varsity players, as well as juniors on last fall’s JV team — features a different event every month. Each competition is designed by a different junior. Next month’s event: a 5K race.
Noah Bender racked up 10 points (5 each for finishing 2nd and scoring the most goals).
Joe Greenwald — who organized and hosted the event — earned 5 points for best goal (a sweet half-volley, upper 90).
All players who participated earned 1 point. Prizes (soccer gear) will be awarded in August, after the 8th round.

Ryan Petersen: 22
Jack Scott: 17
