Finals Certamen 04/09/2011
 
Today was the VA State Finals Certamen.
So sad to think it was the last Certamen of the year! Lots of seniors were there at their last Certamen :'( 
Now I have to think of convention. July seems so far away. But April did way back in September, so I better get studying. :P


 
 
Virginia Certamen teams did pretty well. I was not on any of them.


Advanced level (Latin 3+): something like Fourth place, they ALMOST made it into the Finals, and did REALLY well. 


Novice level (1 and 1A or 1/2 and 1 whichever you call it): I think Eighth place, they were pretty new to the game, so they were nervous. But never fear, they will conquer next year!
