Grauer Surf Team Friendly Competition at George's Beach
From Brian Dugan, Surf Team and Surf PE Coach:
With the cancellation of the second Scholastic Surf Series (SSS) contest, The Grauer School Surf Team organized a bit of friendly competition amongst themselves at George's Beach in Cardiff on November 14. Surf Team Captains Case C. '21 and Erik H. '21 worked with Brian Dugan to design a format that would allow pairs to surf against one another in shortboard, longboard, and finless divisions. Just like the normal team vs. team competition with SSS, surfers earned points for their two-person teams based on their placement at the end of each heat.
The team scored fun waves all morning long and every heat was action-packed. After running all the heats, Brian and assistant coach Danny Dean tallied the point totals, which showed only a small margin separating the top teams. Arthur P. '23 and Erik H. '21 tied with Sage S. '23 and Sophia H. '22 for second place, while Kevin M. '21 and Embry R. '23 took home first place and gift cards to The Broken Yolk! Congrats to all of our surfers on a successful competition!

What can you do to help teens get through the pandemic and improve their mental health? There is a very simple solution, with a lot of research to back it up.
For the 4th year, Grauer students participated in the High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM), where students work in teams of four to solve a problem of real-world mathematical significance, and then explain their methods and results in a paper which is submitted to judges for evaluation.
