Generals Bring Home 2nd Place Overall Sweepstakes at Fall Invitational



Alyssa Vazquez, News Editor

Wisdom hosted the Houston ISD Fall Academic Invitational this past Saturday, and the Generals once again put on a great performance. The defending District 24-5A Champions took home the 2nd Place Overall Sweepstakes Trophy, behind Carnegie Vanguard – a 6A team from another district.
Outstanding performances were led by the Calculator Applications Team and the Journalism Team – each of which won first place overall in their competitions. Congratulations to Aaron Ni on earning a gold medal in Calculator Apps, Yi He for a gold medal in Computer Science, and Ethan Song for a silver medal in Number Sense and a 4th place in Computer Science. Editor Astrid Escobar earned a first place gold medal in newswriting, while our other Editor Sedrah Jamal took home the first place gold medal in headline writing.
“We’ve come a long ways as a team so far in just a short amount of time this year,” said Escobar. “We are all working towards winning the District Championship again, and hopefully putting on a great showing at Regionals.”
Samantha Diaz also won first place in feature writing and earned second place in editorial. Well done by the entire team, including our awesome Coaching staff: Mr. Alcantar, Mr. Hancock, Mr. Caldera, Mr. Clarkson, Mr. Fanucchi, Mr. D’Amico, and Ms. Nair.
