On Saturday, October 24, the Centennial It’s Academic TV team defeated Old Mill and Carver Center 655 points to 435 and 320, respectively. The TV team consisted of captain and senior Gary Tse (who returns after his Superbowl-winning performance last May), senior Kevin Costello, and junior Siri Neerchal. On January 9, 2016, the tournament will air at 10 A.M. on channel 13, WJZ TV CBS Baltimore.
The team’s next TV taping for the first playoff game will begin on March 1. They have many upcoming competitions, including the Georgetown University Invitational on Halloween and the History Bowl at St. Anselm’s Abbey School in November.
In the largest regional tournament in the country, Centennial will host over 80 teams on Sunday, November 8.
It’s Academic is grateful for the performance on TV by Centennial’s Drill team, who is reliable and professional. It’s Academic thanks the administrators, especially Assistant Principal Andie Roberson who appeared on the TV show, and the Centennial Boosters.
“This level of success would be impossible without their financial support,” director Eric Seifter commented.
