PEARLS Qualifies for National History Bowl Championship Tournament as a Semifinalist in the Junior Varsity Regionals
Congratulations to the PEARLS Hawthorne National History Bowl team, who on Saturday, December 13, 2014, competed in the Junior Varsity division of the Lower Hudson Valley regionals, held at White Plains HS, and earned the designation of semifinalist.
PEARLS defeated teams from all over the tri-state area, including Irvington HS, Ranney HS (NJ), and Green Farms Academy (CT). The highlight of the day occurred during the octofinals, when PEARLS (6th seed) upset Fox Lane HS (3rd seed) to move on to the semifinals. PEARLS also out-ranked local teams such as Chappaqua HS, Scarsdale HS, Ardsley HS, and White Plains HS.
PEARLS would like to congratulate fellow semifinalist, our own Yonkers HS, runner-up Bethlehem HS (suburb of Albany), and the champion, Middlesex MS (CT). We would also like to thank White Plains HS, who is always such a gracious host. All teams displayed great sportsmanship and excellent character, and a wonderful time was had by all. PEARLS and Yonkers HS (JV & V) will be competing in the national final championship tournament this spring. Well Done!!
