Congratulations, Academic Challenge Team

Near the end of last semester, CVCA’s Academic Challenge students participated in a national online tournament called the Fall 3-2-1, fielding a varsity team and a “junior high” (7th through 9th grade) team. The younger team took 2nd out of 12 teams, and the varsity took 22nd out of 113 teams, so with both groups placing in the top 20%, they each earned a spot in a more selective national competition in May. Congratulations to varsity participants Jude Armstrong, Caroline Dressel, Owen Lee, Daniel Parker, Aurora Woodruff, Madeline Currall, Talie Koch, and captain Sarah Choi, and JH participants Paige Davies, Jovi Prenatt, Avery Ucker, Mia Ugarte, Solana Calderhead, Wyatt Barnes, Will Helin, Katie Krieger, and captain Ben Choi on a job well done!

Congratulations, Talking Royals

The Talking Royals competed against students from forty-six other schools at Hoover High School on Saturday. The team was led by Nathan Cook, the tournament champion in United States Extemporaneous Speaking. Other highlights include Dominic Catalano’s 6th place rank in International Extemporaneous Speaking, Clive Horn’s 7th place in his Dramatic Interpretation debut, and Megan Marshall’s 7th place finish in Program Oral Interpretation, the last bid she needs to qualify for the State Tournament. Nathan, Dominic, and Clive all earned awards as the top novices in their events.
