The La Colina Junior High and San Marcos High School Latin clubs had a great time participating in the Southern California Regional Amici Madness competition last Saturday, November 12.
Hosted by Crossroads School for the Arts this year, there were 14 delegates from each school. The teams are still awaiting results from their academic entries, but in athletics our students had a strong showing:
- San Marcos High School students competed in academic tests on vocabulary, geography, mythology, and other subjects. Students Alexi Gill and Bryan Shott won the first place ribbon in doubles ping pong.
- La Colina Junior High students competed in academic tests ranging from daily life, mythology, history, and Latin vocabulary. Student Mason Tuttle placed fourth in the overall singles ping pong competition.
The students enjoyed a day based on fellowship and fun with 900 other students from Southern California who share an interest in classical studies and Latin.
