BA Advanced A Certamen team at 2018 Harvard Invitational Certamen

During the heart of Spring Break, a series of Brookfield Academy students convened on Cambridge, Massachusetts for the Ninth Annual Harvard Certamen. Certamen is a classical quiz-bowl which tests a player’s knowledge of Roman culture, Latin literature and language, and Classical myth.

The intermediate team, composed of Kyle Jain, Ali Warraich, Noah Abuhajir, and Niels Armbruster, grappled their way to the top of the tournament, ultimately winning the competition in which they placed second the year before. Kyle Jain was selected as the Intermediate MVP and received an anthology of the works of Tacitus as a prize.

Two advanced teams from BA entered the fray. Advanced A, composed of Margot Armbruster, Adam Abuhajir, and Vibhu Kolli, faced off against Advanced B, consisting of Amanda Roessler, Madison Hesse, Nicholas Chang, and Joanna Boyland, an ally from Eastbrook. During the semis, both teams dueled, and Advanced A continued to the finals while Advanced B overcame the third-seed, rising from ninth to fourth place. Advanced A competed in the finals against two teams from Boston Latin School and ultimately placed third out of the twenty-five schools that participated.

This year’s Harvard Certamen was filled with insane buzzes, iconic moments, questionable food, and best of all, great memories. It will be the final Certamen tournament that BA competes in as a school until next year. Look forward to the results of NJCL Certamen and keep an eye out for Yale tournament information in November.
