Oakdale High School has captured 12 successive Stanislaus County Academic Decathlon championship trophies. How the team fares at this year’s competition will be revealed this weekend, Feb. 1-2, as they face off against nearly a dozen other high school teams in a series of interviews, speeches, and tests.
The consistency of the OHS Aca Dec team’s mental prowess is evident but the members and coach know they can’t rest on past accomplishments. Team members will put their knowledge of this year’s topic to the test and see where the results take them – possibly far enough for another win.
