WUDL Travel Team inches from elimination rounds at Pennsbury Falcon Invitational
The WUDL Travel Team ended an exciting and successful season at the Pennsbury Falcon Invitational this past weekend. This tournament featured students from Bowie High School, DC International, DuVal High School, Kenmoor Middle School, and Washington Latin PCS.
This was the largest WUDL travel contingent ever assembled, almost by a factor of two, with 20 students participating. (previous record was 12)
This was also one of our most successful (competitively) trips ever
DuVal's Jonathan Collins and Ernest Ntangu finishing with a 3-2 record, and within 2 speaker points of moving on to elimination rounds.
Kenmoor's Asha Verma and Isatou Jawara were even closer, finishing 11th in the JV Division (top 10 moved on).
Asha was also the 11th speaker overall, (top 10 get trophies).
We had 6 new students travel to their first competition outside the WUDL, none of them seniors. This will be a great experience for all of them to build on for the future!
Big thanks to Greg Almeida, Aaron Torop, Patrick McMullen, and Guillermo Vidaurre for coming with the squad, and serving as judges and coaches. You made a huge difference!
Further thanks to the parents and other family members who served as chaperones and drivers, we couldn't have done it without you!
