Two teams from St. Barnabas competed in the St. Laurence Scholastic Bowl on Saturday, November 6. Students played four rounds of 20 questions each against teams from other schools in a buzzer-style quiz bowl format. Questions included topics such as movies, books, sports, art, music, literature, grammar, vocabulary, history, geography, math, and science.
Eighth-graders Cecilia K., Cassidy C., Liana P., Mary Kate B., and Leia B. won second place in their division and third overall. Eighth-graders Ben K., Patrick C., and Will P. and seventh-graders Emilia C. and Ellie P. won first in their division and second overall. Congratulations, Buckeyes!
On Saturday, November 6, four boys from St. Barnabas: Lucas., Solomon H., Isaiah B., and James F. competed in the Mount Carmel math competition.
They battled through one round of questions in an individual written test, one round of questions in a group event, and one round of questions in a two-person event in which James and Lucas represented the team. We’re proud of our mathematicians! Great job, gentlemen!
