McAuley juniors and Latin Club Co-Presidents Ellie Kammerer and Katlyn Havlin finished in the Top Ten at the 68th Ohio Junior Classical League State Convention held March 9 - 11 in Columbus. Out of the 500 top Latin students competing at the convention representing 25 schools from all around Ohio, Ellie finished 5th, and Katlyn finished 8th. Katlyn was also elected to the OJCL State Board as the Treasurer. Ellie is also finishing her term as OJCL Historian.

In addition, McAuley's Latin students finished 3rd overall in the state, and McAuley was the Top All-Girls School in Ohio for the 13th year in a row. McAuley's Latin Club was also named the #1 Latin Club in Ohio, achieving 170 Club Contest points, the most of any Latin Club in Ohio. McAuley students were awarded over 100 ribbons, medals and trophies at the 2018 Convention.

The convention brings together 500 students from across the state of Ohio to celebrate the study of Latin. It includes a number of competitions, including academic tests, art contests, certamen (Latin Academic Team), and creative performances, along with social activities such as a dance, toga banquet and more. The OJCL is the state organization which promotes the study of the Latin language and classical civilization. It is part of the National JCL, which has over 47,000 members, making it the largest organization in the world dedicated to the study of classical civilization.
