The Upper School Academic Quiz Team recently competed at the 20th annual Washington University High School Academic Challenge in St. Louis.
The event is one of the largest tournaments leading up to the national competition.
The varsity team—Ridings Bald '20, Rishab Jayanthi '19, Jessica Lao '19, Alejandro Lim '19, and Cole Walker '19—finished with a 10-1 record and placed fifth out of 57 teams.
The junior varsity team—Dickson Bowman '20, David Goetze '20, Muskaan Gupta '21, and Sarah Lao '21—placed second in their division.
Jessica Lao was Westminster's top individual scorer and ranked seventh-highest among the 251 tournament competitors.
While in St. Louis, the students toured the Gateway Arch and the Old Courthouse (pictured), where the Dred Scott decision took place in 1857.
