East Chapel Hill High Wins Fifth NC History Bowl State Title

This past Saturday, East Chapel Hill High School hosted the NC History Bowl/Bee State Championship.  East had two teams competing in the bowl, both of which qualified for the national tournament in Washington, DC.  The team comprised of Max Hazerjian, Alex Dixon, William Ke, Nick Parker, and Vincent Du, went undefeated on their road to winning the state title.  

Likewise, East participants swept the medal round of the varsity NC History Bee, with Alex Dixon taking 1st place, Thomas Brody earning 2nd place, and Sam Pritchard coming in 3rd. 

In the six years that East has fielded a team, coached by social studies teacher Brian Link, it has had at least one team qualify for nationals every year and won five state titles.
Please join us in congratulating each of the individuals listed above (as well Helen Jiang, Kees Benkendorfer, and Sophia Janken who played on the other qualifying bowl team).
