SUA Students Win Multiple Awards at Ohio Junior Classical League State Convention

March 1, 2017 - Columbus, Ohio - 29 SUA students joined SUA Latin teacher Kathy Hammond and several chaperones in Columbus for the annual Ohio Junior Classical League State Convention at the end of February. This year, the students placed 9th out of 29 schools (about 750 students) and increased their scores overall. Almost every SUA student who attended placed in the top 10 in at least one category and together they won 65 top-10 awards.  They are listed below.  Congratulations to the students who attended and participated in the conference and competitions.

For the first time ever, Saint Ursula Academy took a Certamen (a game like Jeopardy but all Latin based questions) team to compete at Convention. Most teams have 4 players, but SUA only had a 2 person team (Cassidy Serger and Clare Pitstick) and they made it to the semi-finals and finished 8th overall. This is a huge achievement for them.
