Centennial High School Academic Decathlon Team Places in Regional Competition (January 2005)

The Centennial High School Academic Decathlon team, despite having a short roster of only sophomores and juniors and only one year of experience, brought home the 5th place Overall Team medal from this past weekend's Regional Competition. Head coach Dr. Derek McDowell considered this an outstanding accomplishment. Being all underclassmen matched up against mostly seniors, our team did an awesome job! Our preparations for this competition began last summer and its been very exciting to watch the team develop. The students came away pumped up and looking forward to preparing for next year.

The team also won the Bronze medal in the highly esteemed Super Quiz Overall Team Competition, while just missing another team medal with a 4th place finish in the Super Quiz Relay.

Team members are Linda Bi, Carlee Young, and Rebecca Choi in the Honors division, Josh Choi, Jon Mark Howeth, and Michelle Nelson in the Scholastic division, and Sadie Fossitt in the Varsity division.

In addition to the 2 team medals, the team won 13 individual event medals, including 3 Gold, 3 Silver, and 6 Bronze. Top medal winners were Michelle Nelson and Rebecca Choi, both with 4. Linda Bi earned 3, including a 4th place Individual Overall medal in the Honors division. Jon Mark Howeth and Sadie Fossitt secured one each.
