kudos to FISD for academic decathlon win

My brother was in decathlon, so I know how much work, sweat and pressure is involved in the preparation for the competition. And then there’s the pressure of the competition itself. Congratulations to Friendswood Independent School District for its recent win.

FISD academic decathlon wins state
— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 11

The academic decathlon team for Friendswood Independent School District won its 14th consecutive state championship during the weekend.

The team scored 44,668 points — the highest score out of 22 schools in its division.

Despite the state title, the Friendswood team won’t be headed to the national competition. That honor was reserved for Plano Senior High School, which was the winner of the large-size school division and earned the highest score of all schools with 46,554 points.


The team earned 55 medals in the regional competition. The event consists of 10 events in academic subjects, including art history, classical music, economics, mathematics and science.
