Congratulations to Montverde Academy’s Academic Team, and advisor Mrs. Kristine Walsworth (an Upper School English teacher) on a great first three weeks in regional Hi-Q competitions! MVA’s “sword of truth” (sword in below photo) has certainly been good luck for the 2016 Academic Team this year! MVA’s Varsity Academic Team had especially strong finishes in varsity matches – and finished #1 in all contests held in the first three weeks. MVA’s JV team is also doing very well – placing in the top 5 of the 10 school competitions.
Montverde Academy’s Academic Team has been busy and productive year since hosting the 2016 Montverde Academy Roger Ross Academic Tournament, formally the MAT and renamed in honor of past MVA Academic Team Advisor and former Upper School Dean Roger Ross, held January 16th. That event welcomed 16 teams from 8 different schools and MVA’s own A team came in 5th.
