Washington High School took three teams to the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 22. There were 32 teams from 20 different schools on hand.
The WHS A team went 12-0, winning the final over second place Ladue A for the second week in a row, and defending its title from last year.
The A team set several records for the program.
“We track a statistic called ‘powers’ - where if you buzz in early enough and are correct, you earn 15 points instead of 10,” said Washington Coach David Dennis. “Our previous high for that last year was 71 back in March. At Eureka last week, we earned 96. This tournament, we earned 115. Joe Stitz personally earned 81 of those, more than we'd had as a team last year.”
Team members for WHS A were Spencer Johnson, Joe Stitz, Matt Dew and Cole Phinney. Stitz finished the day as the top overall scorer with over 110 points per game.
The WHS B Team, made of 3 juniors and a sophomore, finished fourth overall.
Team members for WHS B were Jonathan Amlong, James Collier, Carrie Derner and Ryan Hill. Amlong placed as the seventh leading scorer.
The WHS C Team, all freshmen, went 4-6 on the day, finishing 26th.
Team members were Zoe Godefroid, Marcy Lampe and Elise Thierbach. Lampe finished the day as the 11th highest scoring player.

The Four Rivers Career Center hosted its Pathways to Construction Day (Construction Careers Day) outside of the Nix Cafeteria at Washington High School on Thursday, Oct. 20.
Representatives from St. Louis area construction companies and unions were on hand to give information and demonstrations about their industry.
WHS students visited the presentations during their respective math classes.
Part of the purpose was for the students to learn how math and other skills play an important role in the construction industry.
