Decathlon Awards Banquet

February 9, 2012

The tradition continues for the Academic Decathlon team. The eleven members found out Thursday that they had once again earned an invitation to the state competition in Sacramento, which makes it four years in a row that ERHS has made it to that level. Ms. Oase, the team's head coach, credited their success to "early morning practices, non-existent weekends, and late night study sessions." The banquet took place at the Quiet Cannon center in Montebello. The competition took place over two successive Saturdays, the first on our very own ERHS campus (1/21), the second at USC (1/28). The theme was "The Age of Empire."
