Woodbridge High School finished first in the Orange County Academic Decathlon for the third consecutive year, advancing to the state competition.
The Academic Decathlon is a 10-event contest in which teams of nine compete in the areas of language and literature, science, mathematics, social science, economics, art, music, essay, interview and speech. Each team must include three “Honor” students (those with GPAs of 3.75 or above), three “Scholastic” students (GPAs of 3.00 to 3.74) and three “Varsity” students (GPAs of 2.99 or below).
Woodbridge will receive a plaque and a travel stipend to ensure its members make it to Sacramento for the state competition, which will feature schools from 38 counties.
Woodbridge finished 13th at the California Decathlon last year.
