Nova wins 2nd place on a #CEESA HS KB tournament

On the 7th and 8th of February 2020, in Zagreb, the CEESA HS KB tournament took place. Six schools took part in this competition, including Skopje, Belgrade, Vienna, Krakow, Moscow, and Zagreb. Our first team [Nova A - team] deservedly won the second place in the tournament, thus continuing the unbroken sequence of six consecutive medal-winning seasons. For the members of our two KB teams, this was an invaluable learning experience. Eight students spent four days together with their peers, competing, socializing, sharing their ideas, and generally having a great time. Friday, the first day of the tournament, brought the initial sign of our team's success - we had the best score on the written round. In the evening, after the end of the Head to Head rounds, our first team was seeded second out of fourteen teams for the final rounds on Saturday. The next day, after a series of exciting matches, our first team secured a spot in the finals and eventually won second place out of fourteen teams. Our second team shared the respectable fifth/sixth place. We, as coaches, are particularly proud of this success since this turned out to be the most competitive tournament that we played in the last seven years.
