Welch Students Stand Out at TOC

Tournament of Champions

Nine Welch Middle School students competed in the Tournament of Champions at Redlands Community College in El Reno Friday, April 5.  The Tournament of Champions is the statewide written scholastic championship for middle school students.  It is sponsored by the OAAC. 

Over 500 students from across the state competed on Friday and Saturday.  Welch students competed against large schools such as Edmond, Oklahoma City, Claremore, and Weatherford, as well as several private schools.

In order to attend the TOC 6th, 7th and 8th grade students must earn a spot by placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd at a qualifying tournament.  There are several invitational TOC Qualifying tournaments held across the state. In addition to the invitational tournaments, the OAAC offered the TOCQ online.

The students who qualified to attend TOC include Gage Miller, Cruz Gonzalez, Lucas Layton, Tea Haws, Serenity Jordan, Draven Dillinger, Andrew Massey, Camy Etzel, and Nicole Feltynowski.  Five students placed in the Top Ten.  They are:  6th grade - Andrew Massey, 4th /45 in Science; 7th grade – Serenity Jordan, 9th/52 in Language Arts; Tea Haws, 5th /54 in Science; Cruz Gonzalez, 5th/ 31 in Current Events; 8th grade – Gage Miller, 4th/89 in Language Arts, 6th/ 56 in Social Studies, 2nd/75 in Science, 7th/31 in Current Events, and 6th / 44 in Algebra I.  In addition to tests in subject areas, a student can also take the Top Scholar test by qualifying in five subjects.  Gage Miller qualified and placed 6th /28 in the Top Scholar for 8th grade.

Congratulations and job well done to all.  Students are sponsored by Mrs. Seigel.
