WESTWOOD, N.J. -- Westwood Regional Jr./Sr. High School's History Club visited the WCTV-NJ's "Exit 168" Show last Friday, where they were interviewed about competing in history competitions.

Students competed in the national championships of the National History Bee and Bowl in April.

In qualifying tournaments during the school year, Westwood sent 32 students in six teams to participate at Princeton University in November. In January, 24 students in six teams went to Ridgewood High School, where 100 teams competed. And in March, eight students in two teams competed at a tournament hosted at Westwood Jr./Sr. High School.

At the national championships in Arlington, eight students competed on two teams -- Simran Singh, Eric Kopp, Manasa Karthikeyan, Tommy Tedesco, Jamie Carenza, Inna Trygbuchuk, Rebecca Brandon and Tom Rosta. Alyssa Lara, Isabella Pincay, Theres Alexander and Fernanda Rojo-Sanchezlso also qualified but were unable to attend.

The national championships also included several individual competitions.

Kopp and Tedesco competed in the National History Bee; Kopp and Rosta competed in the U.S. Geography Olympiad; and Brandon and Kopp competed in the U.S. History Bee.

Maggie Swietkowski, Kristin DiLorenzo and Karthikeyan qualified for the U.S. History Bee but were unable to take part in the finals.
