A Banner Season!
HSAS X Country had an amazing season! On October 26, all squads: the Varsity, JV, and Frosh-Soph took first place in the Boro Champs! An amazing feat for a small high school!
Congratulations to the HSAS Model UN Team for their victory at the Lab High School Model United Nations Competition! Students competed in committees on topics ranging from a futuristic war to the illicit arms trade. The team took home 16 of the conference's 24 awards, including all 6 of the Best Delegate Awards. The Lab Conference was the second of the year, preceded by the Global Classrooms conference held at CCNY in February, where the team won the Secretary General's Award, and five of the six best delegate awards. We hope the team's winning streak continues, bringing them to the International Conference held in May at the United Nations!
The HSAS Moot Court Team consisting of Maddie Anderson, Jacob Russell, Kat Mallary and Jake Kern (left to right), won the last round of the city-wide Mentor Moot Court Competition sponsored by Fordham Law School and the Justice Resource Center. At the December 17 finals, HSAS went up against a team from James Madison High School before a panel of federal judges at the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan. The HSAS team is mentored by the awesome attorneys of Dechert LLP.
