Tuesday, March 5th, CCS Quiz Team continued their winning streak at the Catskill Area School Study Council Upstate Academic Competition held at SUNY Oneonta. After winning first place for Small Schools and tournament MVP (Adam Ilgin) at the Geneva Invitational in February, our A and B teams went undefeated to the finals Tuesday, where the A team took the lead after two strong rounds from the B team.
