Over spring break, the nine members of the school’s top Academic Decathlon team travelled to Sacremento to compete in the California Academic Decathlon Statewide Competition, where they were tested on ten subjects: Art, Economics, History, Mathematics, Physics, Music, Literature, Speech, Interview and Essay. Aided by advisor Rick Pillsbury, the team received the highest score in the school’s 30-year history of competing, a whopping 48,329 collective points. The members of the team include seniors Jessica Tang, David Wheatman, Omar Khan, Nico Carballal, Salem Ali, Harrison Bosque, and Nicholas Eaton, and juniors Kylie Houck and Amber Zeng. Khan received a perfect score on the mathematics test and the all-time highest individual score of any student on Pillsbury’s teams.
