Academic Challenge Team Places 10th
In a tune-up prior to their participation in the Quiz Bowl Nationals in Atlanta in May, the Academic Challenge team overcame significant odds to finish tenth in a field of 42 teams at the Livingston NAQT tournament at Livingston High School. The students had to stay for an eleventh round of competition in order to determine their position among the playoff teams.
Senior Jacob Egol finished sixth individually in the morning rounds in a field that included nearly 200 students. Junior Seth Marx placed in the top third of students. Freshmen Lily Egol and Elizabeth Wright both had an outstanding tournament.
