National Academic League team made it to the finals

By Mrs. Andrea Seitchik, NAL Advisor

“The National Academic League © motivates and recognizes academic athletes much like their athletic peers. By successfully combining the important aspects of team sports — such as competitiveness, strategy, teamwork and cooperation in a group effort — with important aspects of learning — such as problem solving, critical thinking and scholarship — the NAL © generates the same popular enthusiasm and pride as do sports teams. It’s cool to be smart!”

Under the their coach, Mrs. Andrea Seitchik, the GWHS NAL Team competed this school year. The team is comprised of students in grades 9-12. Games were played against Northeast, GAMP, Academy at Palumbo, Central and Martin Luther King High Schools. In the City-Wide finals, we earned a 4th Place trophy and medals.   Congratulations to the team:

Zahra Ahmadi, Ashley George, Remya George, Desislava Gerishanova, Mary Gitman, Michael Grossman, Janice James, Delaney Jenkins, Ronald Joseph, Sam Kirsh, Yevgeniy Kobrits, Jeebu Kurian, Devonna Marshall, Raisa Masud, Asal Matchanova, Augustine Menseh, Katrine Metelkova, Trevor Murray, Roman Nikulbursky, Shayan Patel, Roshan Thomas and Jyothish Varghese.
