Academically Incredible

The Academic Team began its season at the Smithtown West Invitational Season Starter in September, and became the first team in the district’s history to qualify for nationals in the first quiz bowl of the year.
The A-Team — comprised of captain Haggai Anglade, Matthew Pecoraro, Noah Rothstein and Richard Joyce — competed against the top Long Island Quiz Bowl teams at the competition, and posted an 8-3 record to place third overall. Anglade also placed fourth in individual points per game. The team will compete at the High School National Championship Tournament at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on Memorial Day weekend, and at the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence national championship competition in June.
The district congratulates the academic team for its outstanding performance and wishes it continued success in future competitions.
