In early February, our Academic Decathlon traveled to Corona HS to compete in the 35th Annual Riverside County Decathlon. This year’s theme for Hemet was based on Star Wars where every student donned a red shirt with the name of a Star Wars character on it.
With a team short on competitors, Hemet still made a formidable challenge in the testing events and took 3rd in the Super Quiz event on the final Saturday of competition. Overall the team placed 6th. Elsinore won the county this year. This year’s competition centered on Africa with cultural, economic, music, arts and popular folklore that the students have been studying on for the previous six or more months.
The experience the students went through was amazing and the memories of being a Decathlete will last a lifetime. Congratulations.
