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.
Wisdomhsnews.com Editor Astrid Escobar earned a first place gold medal in newswriting, while our other Wisdomhsnews.com 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.
