The district’s Academic Team, led by captain Haggai Anglade, Matthew Pecoraro, Noah Rothstein, and Richard Joyce, has achieved an impressive winning streak and is now nationally ranked.

In September, the team placed third at the Smithtown West Invitational Tournament. On Oct. 15, it finished second at the Yale University Fall Academic Tournament, and on Oct. 29, the team topped both of those achievements by placing first at the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights Invitational Tournament. This is the second year in a row North Babylon took first place at Rutgers.

Anglade also distinguished himself once again by having the third highest points scored by an individual player at the Rutgers tournament. This team has qualified for the HSNCT Nationals and PACE Nationals three times, and its next tournament will be a History Bowl at Seton Hall in New Jersey, where it will aim to qualify for the History Bowl Nationals.

The district extends its congratulations to the team and adviser Erin Casserly, and wishes it continued success.
