The second portion of the Mu Alpha Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Black History Bowl was held on Saturday, February 20th at the Citadel Military College.  With parents, family and school administrators on hand, several teams vied for the championship trophies and monetary awards that were up for grabs.  Mitchell and Windsor Hill competed in the elementary school division while Northside, Zucker, Laing and the Kappa Junior League competed in the middle school division.  

Mitchell and Laing would eventually win their respective groups, although all the participants were winners in the manner in which they performed, in a highly competitive competition.  The Mitchell team consisted of students Karmah Shabazz-Watson, Jasmine Green, Georgeanna Mcpherson, Devin Wright and Taivon Snipe, and was coached by Reginald Terry.  The Laing Students were Haven Manigault, Terrell Snipe, Daniyal Mirza and Benjamin Whit.  Students generally spend several weeks in preparation for the contest.  

“It was definitely a process…we drilled them pretty hard on their facts, we were tough on them and they enjoyed themselves,” stated Dylan Hudson, English teacher at Cainhoy Middle School, where the Kappa League team was primarily comprised.  The bowl is one of several mandated programs that the Mu Alpha Chapter holds as part of its annual activities.  Their Talent Hunt program, which features area high school students as they perform musical selections, will be held at the Burke High School Performance Arts Center, on March 5th at 5:00pm and is open to the public.
