Rocky Hill School students placed second at Tuesday’s Certamen, held at Roxbury Latin School in Boston. Proving they can compete at a high level with some of the best teams in the country including Boston Latin Academy and Boston Latin School, Rocky Hill, the lone representatives from Rhode Island, scored 155, just 5 points behind the first-place team and 45 ahead of third.
Rocky Hill had several students in grades eight through 12 compete, but the sophomore team of Brady Dill (Greene), Raymond Mancini (Cranston), Amanda Siegel (East Greenwich), and Shane Woolley (East Greenwich) was the most successful, taking second place in the highly competitive field.
“Yesterday, they beat the very best competition,” Matt Gnolfo, Rocky Hill’s foreign language department chair and Certamen advisor, said. “I am convinced that they can make a run at a national championship.”
