The Harker School is proud of our students’ accomplishments not just in the classroom and on campus, but also off of campus, where they pursue their passions.
Avinash Nayak, grade 10, recently participated in the JUIC International Junior and Cadet Championships in table tennis, where he finished as the runner up. Players from several countries participated in the event, held in Milpitas at the India Community Center’s Table Tennis club. In the final, Nayak was down two games but came back to win the third. The fourth game was well fought, but ultimately went to his opponent, Adolfo Torres from Mexico. Stellan Bengtsson, the former World Singles Champion from Sweden, was there to award trophies to the winners.
Kudos also go out to Jerrica Liao, grade 6, who continues her consistent winning pattern in fencing. Liao traveled to Arizona in early December to compete in the Super Youth Ciruit. She placed third for Youth 12 in women’s foil, and as of mid-November, was ranked 12th in the United States, it is expected that after her high placement in Arizona, her current ranking may be higher
Finally, kudos go out to Shannon Richardson, grade 8, who was selected to participate in the Girls Future Selects High Performance Beach volleyball camp in Chula Vista in July, which will take place at the Olympic training site. The term “future Select campers” refers to players who were born from 97-99. Players must attend a high performance beach tryout, and may then attend the camp by invitation only.
Congrats and kudos to all our talented students!
