1st Place, Michigan Region-5
Division-II (Gr 6-8)
Classics Category: "le tour"
PHS (Pre-High School) Students met at N. Lothrop HS (about an hour away) around 10 am last Saturday, March 5th. They took part in a "spontaneous" problem-solving event which constituted 100 points out of a total of 300 (200 points came from their prepared presentation, "le tour"). Winning this competition means they will compete at the state level with teams from all regions of Michigan.
Members of the team were: Allison, Pranav, Evan, Sarah, Mila
n, and Meli.
The official coach was Maureen (Sarah). The other dedicated coaches were Nancy (Evan) and Bhaghavathi (Pranav). Our two volunteer judges were Kanagpar (Pranav) and Doug (Sarah). They spent two additional Saturdays in coach's training sessions prior to this competition.
The cheering section consisted of classmate George, siblings Rohan and Grace, dad Rich, teacher Keiko Morse and Head of School Kiyo Morse. It was fun to be there to watch the team perform and accept their ribbons.
Mark your calendar to join us in the Cheering Section at the State-wide competition:

We hope to have more of the student body, parents and staff join us for the fun and excitement!!
