Over the summer, grade 4 student Nathan Liu’s basketball team, Spartans, won the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) South Regional Championship. More than 100 teams competed at the event, held in Santa Cruz. The Spartans went on to win the 2015 AAU Summer Tournament Champion in San Carlos. Prior to that, Liu was voted by his National Junior Basketball League (NJB) teammates and coaches to be the NJB West San Jose All-Star candidate.
“Winning or losing is not the key point, the most important is to stay in the game and keep playing!” said Liu.
Also over the summer, Liu (along with another Harker student, Tiffany Zhao, grade 9) traveled to Germany to play piano at the Sulzbach-Rosenberg International Music Festival (to view that Kudos: http://news.harker.org/kudos-grade-9-chess-whiz-upper-and-lower-school-students-perform-at-international-music-festival-in-germany/).
