Freshmen Academic League wins title

The crowded auditorium at Rancho Bernardo High School sat in suspense as Canyon Crest Academy’s freshman Academic League team, down by 20 points, pulled ahead of Westview High School, ending with a 20-point lead to become the champions for the 2009-10 school year. Their win was the first for Canyon Crest Academy.

Coached by Joe Shea, the team’s victory capped an undefeated season, including a win over the previous 10-time winner Torrey Pines High. The CCA team’s members are Elijah Granet, Melody Jung, David Kimball, Eric Nicolas, Vaishnavi Rao, Taimur Rehan, Jingwei Shi, Thomas Swayze, Kevin Vonk and Lynn Yang.

The freshmen put in many hours of practice each week. A huge knowledge base is only one component. Timing of hitting the buzzer was another. The CCA team handled it with ease.
