On Sunday, March 1, 2020, 93 Los Angeles Archdiocese schools competed for the honor of representing their school at the AJHD state championship. The top two schools represent L A at the event. Chapel came in as close as a school could possibly come without earning that privilege; the team placed 3rd in one of the most exciting competitions in the program's 30-year history. Chapel placed 2nd in Logic and 3rd in Super Quiz. In the individual events, the team placed 8th in Fine Arts, 7th in Literature, 4th in Science, and two students placed 1st in their events. Cliff Connors (7th) will compete at State in English, and Joaquin Recinos (8th) will compete in Social Studies.
The team had an amazing run this year; their coaches and fans couldn't be prouder. Of many memorable moments, one that was an honor to watch was when all the 93 teams were announced. Only one team clapped for and acknowledged each and every school. That one team was Chapel. They competed with honor and showed what Chapel is all about.
Only two members of this year's team are 8th graders. Can you imagine next year's team? A special and sincere thank you goes out to Miss Kipp and the faculty and staff who worked all day at the event, so Chapel could compete and to the parents of the team members for their incredible support during the entire season. God bless our team and God bless CCS!
