US Academic Decathlon team will be competing in the national tournament in Garden Grove, California from April 30 - May 4, says Mary Rounds.
Funds to support the team's cross-country foray, in which they will represent the state of Lousiana, are being solicited by coach Leslye Gilchrist.
Among Magnet's standouts in their recent state championship victory, said Gilchrist, were Eszter Szentirmai, top honors in speech and essay, the Spirit of Decathlon award and Decathlete of the year. Alex Young, best overall in interview. Parker Leeth medaled in nine of the ten awards and won a Spirit of Decathlon award. All of the students came home with several medals, said Gilchrist.
