The high school Academic Team performed remarkably in the History Bowl and Bee in Washington, D.C. Twelve students in grades 10-12 participated in events including the U.S. Geography Olympiad, International Geography Bee, U.S. History Bee, History Bee and History Bowl, which featured two North Babylon varsity teams.

The Varsity A Team — comprised of captain Haggai Anglade, Matthew Pecoraro, Noah Rothstein and Richard Joyce — placed sixth in their upper bracket, and 42nd out of 148 of the top quiz bowl teams in the nation. Anglade and Pecoraro, who both competed individually in the National History Bee, placed 29th and 43rd, respectively, out of more than 160 participants.

Anglade received a plaque for his achievement, and holds the highest rank of any district quiz bowl player in the nine years North Babylon has participated in competitions.
