The LCJSMS Academic Team completed another successful season with their participation in the annual statewide Academic Tournament that was open to middle schools teams and held from January through March at the Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School.

Through the multiple rounds of the tournament, the LCJSMS team rang up victories against teams from towns including Mendham, Warren, and Monmouth Junction and finished with a strong effort in the tournament semifinals against the eventual champions from Bridgewater-Raritan.

Among the students who participated in the tournament were eighth graders Claire Harrison and Drew Schwendiman, and seventh graders Alex Kelser, Ben Kelser, Alex Lin, and Chris Westdyk.

The team is moderated by LCJSMS social studies teacher Warren Wannamaker.
