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.
