The Academic Decathlon team from American Canyon High School finished in third place at this year’s North Bay Region Academic Decathlon, held Saturday at Solano Community College in Fairfield. The students are now preparing to compete in the California Decathlon March 27-28 in Sacramento.
“Not everyone was able to medal individually this year,” Gonzalez said. “Not only did my students need to beat the other team members for a top-three finish, they also had to win against each other.”
The team from American Canyon represented Napa County in the competition among 15 teams —and 250 students — from high schools in Napa, Solano, Sonoma, Yolo, Lake and Mendocino counties.
