IHS Brain Team in New Jersey

At High Technology High School’s Quiz Bowl Invitational Tournament in Lincroft, N.J., Aidan Peck, Andrey Shakhzadyan, Casey Wetherbee, Daniel Xu, James Park, and Eli Zhang jointly played in 11 games in total, starting with five preliminary matches in the morning where they had a nearly undefeated 4-1 record and were sorted into the championship bracket in the afternoon. Sophomores Casey and Daniel ranked 5th and 8th in individual rankings for the morning (no other team had two members in the top ten!). 

In the afternoon, Ithaca played against the other top teams at the tournament, continuing their amazing performance and finishing the tournament with a 7-4 record, featuring a down-to-the-last-question loss against the eventual tournament victors. As was the case at Princeton, many of these matches could easily have gone the other way, but this record – combined with an impressive average score of 336.8 points per game – ranked Ithaca as tied for fifth place out of 24 teams, which automatically qualifies them for the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence’s National Scholastic Championship in this coming spring!

At this meeting, families will learn about senior events for the year, including the fall dance, Winter Formal, handball tournament, Senior Prom, Senior Trip, Senior Week, and even Graduation. While not all details have been ironed out, the class officers and advisors will discuss these events and the expectations of the students who will participate.

In addition, they will let you know how families can get involved in the exciting events for the rest of the year.

We hope to see you there!
