Seventh Year Running: McAuley Latin Champs

Seventh Year Running: McAuley Latin Champs

Among many other honors, McAuley Certamen contestants (here wearing “war paint” and McAuley Mohawk-themed togas) won the Latin competition’s Spirit Award.

McAuley High School (College Hill, Cincinnati) is the top all-girls school in Ohio in the 2012 Ohio Junior Classical League’s annual Certamen competition — for the seventh year in a row.

Scoring sixth overall out of 29 schools, McAuley brought home individual and group awards in classical mythology, speech, art, drama, and other subjects at the OJCL Annual Convention last month.

Junior Samantha Nissen had top ten finishes in nine categories, including Roman history, Latin sight reading, and grammar, and literature. Sophomore Rebecca Koize placed in the top ten in five areas.

The McAuely Latin Club earned a gold medal and superior rating for outstanding service projects, which included creating blankets for Project Linus and assembling packages for troops overseas. Its publication, The Shear Truth, won a silver medal and an excellent rating.

The entire McAuley delegation also received the Spirit Award on Saturday evening of the convention for their enthusiasm and their McAuley Mohawk-themed togas.
