Three students in Junior Classical League placed first in competitions at the organization’s state convention on March 15 and 16 in Newport Coast.

Alex Liao ’15 placed first in the grammar test in the high school three level, while Jonathan Sington ’14 and Zach Birnholz ’14 placed first in the high school advanced level of the open Certamen competition, a Latin-based game modeled on “Jeopardy.”

Each annual convention, which includes schools from across California and Nevada, features activities from workshops to chariot races.
