The SSES Academic Team continued its stellar season with an impressive showing at the Central Florida regional History Bowl at Largo High School on Oct. 30. This all-day tournament qualifies individuals and their teams for national competition in Washington, D.C. in April 2022. The varsity team of Jackson Nealis, Sophia Berry, Tyler Kadivar, and Maxine Mandt placed second overall, and the JV team of Patrick Van Eyck and Theo Frano reached the playoff round – qualifying both teams for nationals. The competition featured questions spanning all categories of history, from ancient to current global politics. In the individual Bee competition, Nealis was the top varsity scorer, and Berry and Van Eyck earned third-place medals in the varsity and JV divisions, respectively. During a break in competition, the students were given the option to take individual subject-area qualifying tests, and Saint Stephen’s students were the top scorers in all categories: geography, science, U.S. history, and political science.
