Nanuet is built on academic and athletic excellence. Founded in 1982, our school has remained up-to-date and has always adapted to modern standards. As the popularity of egg spoon racing soars nationwide, with searches on Google dating back to March 21, 2022 at 4:43 PM, Nanuet is proud to announce it is implementing the sport into the next school year as a varsity and junior varsity sport.

Students like Junior Jay Gatsby are excited about the upcoming sport.

“The new track is great,” he said. “But [the egg thing is definitely cooler]. I’m looking forward to watching from the bleachers and cheering on my favorite teams.”

Students from across the district have shown interest, such as eighth grader Jane Air.

“I’m so happy [in addition to] the track[,] [egg spoon racing] is going to be available [as a junior varsity and regular varsity sport],” she said. “I can’t wait to go try out for the team this fall].”

Freshman Egads Egs is looking towards the future.

“I think I can get accepted to a nice college if my [egg-spoon career] works out. I have high grades, but [I have not tried the egg spoon sport yet and I think that will be attractive to colleges].” he said. “I have high hopes that participating in this will help set me up for my future.”

Juniors like Joe Marmah are also ready to get going this fall.

“I’ve been in the stands all the time for Brown Jug games,” he said. “But I’ve always thought ‘where is the egg-spoon league’? I’m happy Nanuet has taken initiative on this issue.”

However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Many parents were vocal about the dangerous elements of the sport, such as this parent of a freshman and a senior.

“Honestly, I would be scared my child would get egg on their shoes and therefore I would have to wash them,” said one parent. “Even so, I’m looking forward to the new egg-spoon season as this is all I can think about right now.”

Not all parents share that sentiment.

“I’m really excited to have my child play in the egg-spoon racing season upcoming next school year,” a mother of a sophomore said. “I’m proud to live in a district with such a good academic program [that includes egg-spoon racing]. My child has already asked me to buy spoons for the upcoming season.”

While preparations are already underway for the egg-spoon season this fall, discussion of a Jello wrestling league is already underway.
