Congratulations to the 18 students who participated in the Academic Bowl hosted by the Department of History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha on Saturday, April 22 where Creighton Prep teams finished first, third and fourth.
The Academic Bowl is a competition for Omaha metro students enrolled in AP US History and is modeled on the AP Exam in that students take a multiple choice test and complete one essay. Students earn medals for their individual scores, and teams earn overall awards.
Fourteen of Prep’s 18 students earned medals in the essay category including gold medals for Yoobin Ha, Joe McGill and Peter Owens, silver medals for Joe Hennessey, Isaiah Hogue, Paul Martin, Jack Nussrallah and Ben Wingerter, and bronze medals for Austin Berry, Sean Hassett, David Koubsky, Paul Matthews, Ryan McNamara and Seth Sandoval.
In addition, seven of the top 10 students in the multiple choice category were Prep students including Isaiah Hogue (first), Joe Hennessey (second), Peter Owens (third), Jack Nussrallah (tied for fourth), Gabe Drew (tied for sixth) and Yoobin Ha and Paul Martin (tied for ninth).
