QCHS has FBLA state champion
Avadar Brownlee photoAvadar Brownlee of Quakertown Community High School won the state’s Future Business Leaders America state competition and qualified for nationals. Her triumph came in the Human Resources Management competition.

“Avadar did a phenomenal job and I couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishment,” said Sandi Frisch, the faculty advisor to the FBLA club. “This is her first year with FBLA and she’s a dedicated student and great team member.”

Earlier in the school year Avadar was named a Commended Student in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. She scored 1500 on the SAT and has a GPA of 4.3.

The top four finishers at states advance to the national competition. While Avadar, a senior, is the lone QCHS student to do so, several others placed in the highly competitive tournament, which is judged by professionals in their various fields. Juniors Katie Muller and Kiersten Williams finished seventh in Graphic Design. Senior Khushi Vandra was ninth in Supply Chain Management, and senior Eliza Menser was 10th in Agribusiness. Eliza has qualified for states three years in a row.

“I am so proud of our team,” Mrs. Frisch said. “Everyone really did excellent work and represented Quakertown and themselves very well.”


Collin Gaj wins national title

Collin Gaj photoQuakertown Community High School wrestler Collin Gaj became a national champion for the second consecutive year, winning the National High School Coaches Association freshman 132-pound title. A year ago, as a student at Strayer Middle School, Collin captured the coaches' Junior High School championship. He is the first Panther to win a national title.

“That’s a prestigious event,” Coach Kurt Handel said. “It takes a special athlete to win. That’s quite impressive.”

Collin, who finished fourth in the Pennsylvania state championship in Hershey earlier this month, said he “goes out to win every time I’m out there. It’s pretty cool to finish first. They’ve been getting me ready for this since I was 10. Quakertown coaches teach us how to win.”

Quakertown had several wrestlers compete in the national event at the Virginia Beach Sports Center. Calvin Lachman finished third at 182 pounds, and Mason Ziegler, who was injured during the tournament, finished eighth at 120 pounds. Assistant coach Dan Ziegler made the trip with the wrestlers, who included Issac Williams, Tyler Scheibenhofer, Evan Hilton, Gavin Carroll, Max Hibsman, and Zach Borzio.

To have three wrestlers place is amazing for any program,” Coach Handel said. “This has been a heck of a year. I’m still in awe of how well these guys did. Man, what an amazing run.” The Panthers won the District One Southeast Regional championship, took their sixth consecutive Suburban One League Liberty Division championship, and Coach Handel earned District One Coach of the Year honors and his 300th dual meet victory.
