38 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 4.19 THE BIT WE LOVE Megan Hoskins rode Gato Del Sol in May 1982. He was made of a broomstick and cut-out paper. Hoskins' silks and helmet, also pa- per. She didn't win. (Her friend did.) But all these years later, Hoskins still shows up to the annual race: Louisville Colle- giate School's kindergarten derby. Now in its 58th year, the race is a tradi- tion at the private school in the High- lands. The entire student body (pre-kin- dergarten through 12th-grade) attends, as do teachers, parents and generations of alumni. They decorate a maypole in frills and fully saturated colors. The seniors dress up for the "infield," and spectators don hats. The construction-paper manes flitter in pinks, teals and fiery reds, and a blanket of tissue-paper roses awaits as Fun Run Kindergarteners take off. By Mary Chellis Nelson
