This past weekend was the 2013 OAAC High School Tournament of Champions. In order to compete, students had to have placed at a local tournament. However, unlike local tournaments, there are no class divisions at this state-wide tournament so placing is a significant accomplishment. The following Crossings students placed at this HSTOC:
Chris Wang – 1st in Trigonometry, World History and Vocabulary, 3rd in Computer Science
Shelby Wilkinson – 1st in Biology II and 3rd in Anatomy & Physiology Derek Richards – 2nd in 4th Yr Math and Computer Applications, 3rd in Calculus Rebecca Soo – 2nd in World Languages II
Abigail Stewart – 3rd in Chemistry
Also competing and representing Crossings well were Dylan Dennis, Carter Loomis, Ben Loper, Caleb Philliber, Avery Smith, Brett Szymanski and Grant Wilkinson.
