The Junior Varsity Academic Team took home a third-place trophy after competing in the final tournament of the Regional Quiz Bowl at Plainview-Old Bethpage High School.

Competing against more than 50 of the top academic teams from Nassau and Suffolk counties, the students took part in the “Jeopardy”-like competition which covered a variety of academic disciplines and topics including art, history, poetry, literature and science.

The teamwork and motivation of Cameron Cohen, a junior, Kyle Onghai, a sophomore and seniors Eric Tischer and Ben Zaltsman is to be commended.

“These students truly amaze me with the base of knowledge they possess,” teacher and coach Michel Krivosta said. “Their individual quick-thinking skills and collaboration are admirable.”
