— The T.C. Williams National Honor Society and Athletic Department hosted for the first time in Alexandria the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, May 18-19. The 24-hour relay included several teams of TC students and staff members. Participants formed teams and set up tents and camping supplies. After the first opening lap — the survivors lap — teams started the relay with one member on the track, walking, at all times. Music was provided with live entertainment throughout the afternoon and evening and again on Sunday morning. The Relay for Life organizers were Patty Moran and Steve Colantuoni.
