CHS Academic Octathlon Team Earns Honors (June, 2005)

In its second year of competition, The Centennial High School Academic Octathlon team competed very well, finishing second in the region earning the Overall Team Silver medal and the 1st place Gold medal in the highly prized Super Quiz Team Relay.

Academic Octathlon is a sub-varsity competition involving teams comprised of only freshmen and sophomores, consequently there is no advancement to a State competition. However, the results from all of the regional competitions are forwarded to the Texas Academic Decathlon office where a final ranking is done. A formal publication of these results showed that out of 63 teams, CHS finished 8th in the State

This is a great accomplishment for a young program with many students competing for the first time. The Academic Decathlon coaches, Derek McDowell, Joanna Cone, and Steve Cone, couldn’t have been more pleased. Those competing were:

John Park, Marrisa Yang, Analisa Packham, Viral Shah, Patrick Kimbley, Zach Morrison, Michael Brown, Alex Grindborg, Antonio Figueroa, Kyle Pittman, Stephanie Qin, Norm Qi, Camila Santana, and Stephanie Holthaus

Congratulations to all involved!
