The St. Emily School (Mt. Prospect) Scholastic Bowl team participated in two meets in the month of October.
They spent several weeks practicing so they would be prepared to compete at Saint Viator High School and Notre Dame College Prep High School.
It was great to see the excitement they exhibited as they competed on an academic level.
They finished fifth of twelve teams at Saint Viator, and at Notre Dame they were invited back for the final round of competition. They finished fifth out of eighteen teams there.
We were very proud of our students as they demonstrated tremendous knowledge in all subject areas, as well as exhibiting great sportsmanship throughout.
Our 8th Grade Scholastic Bowl team is comprised of Justin Baltazar, Emma Dempsey, Olivia Dominguez, Nick Hoffmann, Brendan Igoe, Jake John, Nathan Natindim, Meredith Nowotarski, Patrick O'Brien, and Michael Ryzner.
The Scholastic Bowl team is led by 8th grade teacher, Regina Kinasz.
