Latin Club at CJCL State Convention – Win!
Latin Club at CJCL State Convention
The California Junior Classical League Convention was this past weekend in Orinda, CA. Kehillah had 12 delegates from the Latin Club attend. As part of the convention, there were academic tests, games, and a quiz bowl.
All three Kehillah teams made the finals, and both the Latin I and the Latin Advanced teams won their finals rounds!
The Advanced Team (Jonathan Nozik, Jacob Kaplan-Lipkin, and Noah Weiss) took the championship for the THIRD year in a row. (Mark Treitel is also normally part of the team but was on the Israel trip)
Latin I team (pictured left to right): Jacob Fernandez, Avi Kaplan-Lipkin, and Ben Darnell
Latin III team: Mat Grinberg, Renny Glasner, and Sam Feldman. (Abigail Amit and Indiana Podbere, also on the Israel trip, also competed with Mat Grinberg at the regional event, qualifying the Latin III team for semi-finals)
Jonathan Nozik received the top score in 3 separate academic tests. Kehillah overall placed 2nd overall in achievement for like-sized high schools.
Also representing the convention as part of Kehillah's Latin Club: Nate Jacobi, Iddo Fuhrmann, and Amiel Cox.
Nationals will be this summer held in San Antonio. More news to come!
