SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP —
Gallatin is excited about the team’s upcoming competitions. On Feb. 10, there will be a taped competition, aired on Channel 5 WEWS, against Copley High School and Kent Roosevelt High School. On Feb. 27, the students will participate in the Quiz Bowl, a county-wide competition that takes place in Andover. The team will compete against nine other county schools. The team is looking forward to going head-to-head with other local schools, including Grand Valley, Edgewood and Jefferson.
“Because of the well-roundedness and commitment of our team, my expectations are high this season,” Gallatin said.
Looking to next year, Gallatin is already preparing for the departure of seniors Beardsley, Berus and Bree Leonard. He has been encouraging underclassmen to come out to the team, and the upperclassmen of the team have been aiding.
“I’m trying to bring underclassmen through so that we’ll have an equally strong group after the seniors and juniors of this year leave,” said Gallatin.
“I hope that we can attract newcomers,” said Schoren, “not just from the incoming freshmen, but from the entire school so that we can build the team for upcoming years.”
