Harriet Freeman, who is studying Ancient Greek in the U6, has won the Omnibus Sam Hood Prize for her creative translation of a passage from Euripides' Bacchae. A very close runner-up was Harvey Cao, also in U6, with his translation of a Latin passage from Cicero's speech Against Catiline.
Harriet is applying to read Classics and Harvey is aiming to study Physics.This is the first time in the history of this National Competition that both the winner and the runner-up have come from the same school. A simply outstanding achievement and all congratulations go to Harriet and Harvey.
