This year, the Upper School Academic Team earned a trophy for their impressive season, sweeping the Cincinnati State Academic League Competition in March and performing well at the regional level in April.
The varsity team consists of Cole Harten '22, Pooja Kantemneni '22, Mica Murdoch '23, and Alistair Norwood '22. Pooja Kantemneni qualified for the all-league second team, and Cole Harten qualified for the first team. They also co-captain the varsity team.
According to Academic Team club advisor and Upper School teacher Jeanette Hecker, the JV team, which includes Marley Handler '24, Louisa Joy '25, Jordan Lowe '25, and Emma Rainey '24, is also building momentum.
"The combination of their knowledge, speed on the buzzers, and willingness to take chances and make educated guesses was a privilege and joy to witness,” said Hecker.
Congratulations to the Upper School Academic Team on their success!
