On Saturday, the Regis High School Science Bowl team competed in the New York City Regional Science Bowl competition. Two Regis teams particpated: The Regis A team, composed of David Boak '15, Joseph Fulgieri '16, Ryan Hall '15, Christopher Hillenbrand '15, and George Sivulka '16; and the Regis B team, composed of Luke D'Cruz '17, Hampton Gaddy '18, Robert Geron '16, Erik Jaklitsch '16 and James Koehne '15.

Both Regis teams competed meritoriously, with the A Team advancing to the final round. In the championship match, Regis defeated Hunter College High School by a solid margin to become the 2015 Regional Champions.

The victory is the second New York City Regional Science Bowl championship in a row for Regis. Last year, the team not only earned a spot in the national championship tournament, but excelled against the competition to earn a third place national finish. The victory on Saturday secured the team's opportunity to play for the national title once again.

The National Science Bowl Championship Tournament, featuring the top high school teams from throughout the country, will take place in Washington, D.C. this coming April.
