The Monterey Academic Decathlon had an outstanding showing over the weekend at our state competition. The team scored over 43,000 points and finished in 6th place overall. This placement earns our team members a minimum of $600 each in scholarships with more for individual achievements. This is the first time in school history our team has earned team scholarship money.
Our team members included: Honors: Ethan Gates, Zeke Lusk, and Meredith Lowe; Scholastics: Cameron Shaw, Ryder Mitchell, and Magnus Peterson; and Varsities: Elias Trevino, Quinn Woods, and Jacob Brinson. Combined the team earned 41 individual medals.
In a year with so many obstacles, our team has continued to excel, achieve, and overcome and we are so very proud of them. Please congratulate these outstanding plainsmen.
