Scholastic Bowl

This was a unique year for Daniel Wright students and certainly for the Scholastic Bowl team. Our 19 team members have been studying, scrimmaging, and building team unity all while on Zoom. Daniel Wright captured first place in the Patriot Consortium in early April, which earned them an invitation to the Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT).

“We are so proud of our team’s demonstration of maturity, unwavering sportsmanship, mastery of subject material, and building team camaraderie without ever being together in person,” Coach Jan Lamberti said.

The Daniel Wright Scholastic Bowl team competed with 112 schools from across the country remotely in the Middle School National Championship Tournament last weekend. Among an extremely competitive field, the DW teams did not make the playoff rounds on Sunday but really shined in the consolation bracket. “We are proud of our teams' sportsmanship, disciplined approach, mature collaboration, and grace under pressure,” said Coach Matthew Clark.

Members of the Scholastic Bowl team include Rakshith Bellam (8th), Eshaam Bhattad (8th), Timothy Bui (8th), Agastya Choudhary (8th), Amartya Gunjan (8th), Jonathan He (7th), Nathan Huang (8th), Sanjay Malisetty (8th), Dhruv Malladi (8th), Cady Munkhbayar (6th), Nisha Salian (7th), Ani Srinivasan (6th), Tiffany Tang (6th), Kaashish Venkataramanan (8th), Shriyaa Vijay (8th), Felix Wang (8th), Richard Xu (7th), Kevin Yang (8th), and Chelsea Zhao (6th).
