A CLOSER LOOK AT THE CHAMPIONSHIP WINNERS

It is rare when a school wins the Scholastic Games championship in consecutive years.  Only three schools have done it previously over the history of the program, and this year’s winner has become the fourth.  Uniquely this time, the team captain who led his team to victory this year is the brother of the captain who did so last time.  But it takes a balanced team to make it to the top, and you’ll meet all three team members in Bob Tayek’s interview of three exemplary students.

SEMIFINAL 2: TWO FORMER CHAMPION SCHOOLS COMPETE FOR CHANCE TO CHALLENGE DEFENDING CHAMPION AVON

One of the top private schools in the region, Lake Ridge Academy of North Ridgeville, which provided our 2010 championship team, is pitted against Olmsted Falls High School, the public school that holds the Scholastic Games record for consecutive championships (2011-2014).  Only one of these outstanding academic teams will face Avon High School in next week’s Scholastic Games Championship.  Competing for Lake Ridge are, as pictured left to right, Carter English, Katelyn Mihu and Quinn Sekreta.  The  team from Olmsted Falls High School is comprised of, left to right, Ben Meredyk, Joey Calabrase, and Eric Andrews.  The uncertain factor is that both of these teams are without their former team captains, in both cases out visiting universities and unable to adjust their schedules.  Click above to hear the show, or read about the final results in our official news release.

Public libraries have changed a lot in recent years, expanding from books, magazines and references to a variety of audio, visual and digital media.  It has been particularly a year of change for the Elyria Public Library System, a loyal supporter of the Scholastic Games, as well as many other community services.  It’s been a year of library renovations, for one thing, and according to the library’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Adam Matthews, it’s all part of forward movement and vitality for the organization.  Matthews is interviewed by Bob Tayek.
