Who Says Dire Wolves are Extinct? Impossible! They Just Won the 2018 Quiz Bowl!

Chapel's Dire Wolves defeated 23 L.A. Catholic Schools at the 2018 Quiz Bowl on Saturday, February 3rd. Last year's Chapel decathletes brought home gold in all three jewels of the decathlon Triple Crown, so that team was a hard act to follow. With only one returning member, only two eighth-graders, the largest Quiz Bowl ever, and the most difficult study guide in the history of the competition, Chapel took first in both team events: Logic and Super Quiz. The team earned honors in seven of the eight individual events. When all the scores were added up, Chapel was awarded the championship trophy. It was an impressive win because our ten did it with hard work, honor, team work. and style. The team took inspiration from five members of last year's team and other grads who came to cheer the decathletes on. This was the 16th Annual Cathedral High Quiz Bowl. It is the 12th time Chapel has brought home the Gold.

Chapel Family Gives From the Heart and Head for Cancer Patients!

Sheila Castillo has the most beautiful new hair style. The reason she does is both precious and humbling. All the girls in her family gave their hair, nearly 10 feet in length overall, to a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients who've lost their hair while undergoing chemotherapy. The charity drive was held at St. Monica's High School where sister Britney attends. Sheila and Britney were joined by sisters Alishah, Randi, Adonay, and mother Rebecca. God bless the Castillo family!!
