Middle School Academic Challenge

The Middle School Academic Challenge Team brought their fast buzzers and brainpower to the National Academic Quiz Tournament in Chicago in May. The team was represented by Giles Lafave '28, Will Bach '29, and Luke Chao '29 who demonstrated their breadth of knowledge and depth of teamwork.

Over two action-packed days, they answered hundreds of questions through 12 rounds of intense competition. Congratulations to Giles Lafave who placed 24th out of nearly 800 participants - in the top 3% in the entire tournament!  The group is already studying and looking forward to next year's Academic Challenge season.
