The Academic Decathlon is a competition for Catholic school students in grades six to eight. It is a rigorous event made up of two team efforts involving a Logic Quiz and a Super Quiz sandwiched around eight individual events, including religion, English, literature, science, mathematics, current events, social studies and fine arts. The St. Apollinaris team took first place in the Super Quiz portion and third in logic. St. A’s students swept the individual events with five first-places in the following subjects: religion, social studies, literature, current events and science, and a second-place finish in math. The St. Apollinaris Decathlon Team is composed of 10 dedicated students each covering a different academic subject. The participating students are eighth graders Connor Bacci, Aaron Chau, Connor deLeuze, Michael McLoughlin and Nat Richmond; and seventh graders Joe Bosetti, Meg Collins, Caspar Croft, Gavin Glascott and Dena Prince.
