    The weight of the head plus the weight of the body equals the weight of the head with the body. Confused? “Not I!” Replies AHS’ Academic Decathlon, bring home the heads of their opponents at their competition on Jan. 30 and Feb. 6.
    The Academic Decathlon consists of three teams (honors, scholastic, and varsity) who are “They’re willing to dedicate time and effort and enjoy learning for the sake of learning,” commented captain Alison Hsieh. The team meets biweekly after school in addition to weekly outside meets. [maybe advisor’s quote].
    The competition on Jan. 30 took place at El Rancho High School and the competition on Feb. 6 took place at USC. This LA County Regional competition includes all the schools in the LA County school district (about 53 schools). This year’s theme is the French Revolution. The subjects of this theme include the literature at this time, art, chemistry, economics, and history. The first weekend of the competition (Jan.30) consisted of speeches, interviews, and essays; the second weekend (Feb. 6) includes a multiple-choice test portion as well as an oral question relay. The scores are tallied from the two top scoring individuals of each team (honors, scholastic, varsity). AHS’ Academic Decathlon place [what with what score]. Beat only by [if any with what]. [any individual awards]. “I would like to see the team go to state (even if I’m not in it) sometime in the near future and really prove that Arcadia is a school to beat.” Commented vice president Lynn Huang.
    Win: Having won first place in its competition in Nov., Academic Decathlon remains in first place and hopes to hold its lead in its next competition. Good luck at your next meet and keep bring in those heads!
    Lose: Losing their lead to [what school], Academic Decathlon hopes to win it back at their next competition.

    “It was the best of times, it was the worse of times.” And it is now the epoch of AHS’ Academic Decathlon, who brought home the heads at their French Revolution-themed competition on Jan. 30 and Feb. 6.

    Academic Decathlon consists of three teams determined by GPA: Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity. The team has been preparing for competitions since summer and is “willing to dedicate time and effort and enjoy learning for the sake of learning” as described by Captain Alison Hsieh. In addition to biweekly after school, the team regularly hosts two-hour meetings on weekends as well.

This year’s theme is the French Revolution, encompassing topics like art, music, chemistry, economics, literature, and history of the time. The first weekend of the competition consisted of speeches, interviews, and essays; the second included seven multiple-choice tests as well as a history-based oral question relay.
