Congratulations to the Academic Decathlon National Team, which placed seventh in the small school division (schools with 750 students or fewer) and won the "Rookie School" award for having the highest score for a first time national appearance. The team also brought home seven medals and two scholarships: essay: Larkin Smith (Gold) and Samantha Hancock (bronze); Math: Vanessa Siriwalothakul (gold), Samantha Hancock (silver) and Christina Cheesman (bronze); interview: Samantha Hancock (silver); economics: Christina Cheesman (bronze); highest scoring team member: Christina Cheesman ($250 scholarship); eam MVP: Vanessa Siriwalothakul ($250 scholarship). All of the members of this team represented our school, community and state exceptionally well! A big thank you to all who supported us financially: Booster Club, First Bank, CME (Vail Resorts), JP Morgan and Assoc., Larkburger, numerous friends and family donations and all who contributed to our fundraising events.
