This past weekend (January 28th) our team competed in the Regional Academic Decathlon and I am very proud of their performance. For those who may not know, the Academic Decathlon is a competition where students are tested in 7 areas (Art, Economics, Literature, Math, Music, Science, and Social Science). They also have to write an Essay, do a speech, and be interviewed. As a team, they won Third Place in the Super Quiz.
Our highest-ranking team members who received a Gold Medal were Jeanne Osborne for Honors, Adam Valasquez for Scholastic, and Cesario Alvarado for Varsity. Individual awards were Gold Medal for Essay Scholastic Samantha Bernal, Silver Medal for Economics Honors Angelina Dominguez, Silver Medal for Economics Scholastic Amy Rodriguez, Silver Medal for Science Honors Audrey Martinez Gonzalez, Silver Medal for Music Honors Audrey Martinez Gonzalez, Bronze Medal for Economics Audrey Martinez Gonzalez, Silver Medal for Music Honors Jeanne Osborne, Gold Medal for Economics Varsity Cesario Alvarado, Silver Medal for Math Varsity Cesario Alvarado, and Bronze Medal for Interview Varsity Cesario Alvarado.
