Sachem East junior Lucas Moreno participated in the National History Bowl Championships recently in Washington D.C.

Moreno finished No. 55 out of 154 in the national competition, No. 67 in the U.S. history varsity division, No. 52 in the International Geography Bee and 27 out of 92 in the U.S. Geography Olympiad.

“It was a great experience and a highly competitive and exhausting weekend of competition,” said Moreno.

“Lucas is a gifted history student with a passion for history that he certainly demonstrated by placing so well competing among the nation’s best history students,” said Tracey Melandro, advisor of the History Honor Society and social studies teacher at Sachem East. “We are so proud of him at East.”
