Regional Academic Decathlon Champions!

Congratulations to the Mount Michael Academic Decathlon team who won their regional competition.  There were six subject tests, and with three categories of students and three medal spots for each, that makes 54 possible medals for the regular team and 54 more for the alternate team.  Of those 108 possible medals, The Knights won 60!  The competition's most exciting event is the Quiz Bowl. In the Quiz Bowl each of the team’s six Quiz Bowl competitors must answer 10 questions. The Knights won that by scoring 35 points to Duchesne Academy’s 29.

The Knights are now back to work in preparation for the State Competition to be held at Creighton University on February 17-18.    Photos   -   Nebraska Academic Decathlon Home Page - Omaha World Herald
