Power of the Pen

The College of Wooster was the site of the 29th annual Power of the Pen State Competition for Young Writers. St. Anselm seventh-grader Christopher Velotta competed against over 750 writers from 270 schools in Ohio in the all-day writing tournament. Christopher made it to the final round, the “Power Round,” and placed 13th in the state.

Track Team Champs

This girls team won the city championship for the second year in a row on June 4. The sixth and seventh-grade girls competing against mostly eighth-graders racked up 27 points in the 4×100-meter relay with Katie Colagiovanni, Sarah Harbert, Evie Horton and Meredith Jeffrey-Mallon; the 400-meter run by Julian Grabinski; the 800 by Valerie Raicevich, third in the 4×200 with Julian, Valerie, Sarah and Meredith; discus by Evie and Colleta Rose; and shot put by Evie.

In addition, Ava Thomas completed her incredible grade school race to records by winning all three of her events – the 200-meter hurdles, the 200 and high jump. Congratulations, girls.

The boys team earned its highest finish ever at a city championship with a fourth place finish. Highlights were Andrew Sieminski’s first place finish in the discus, where he set another school record with a throw of 129 feet, and the boys 4×200 with Sam Leygraff, Evan Ditchman, Andrew and Chris Velotta finishing third.

The team will be looking for their first ever city championship in 2015.
