KETCHIKAN (KDN) — For the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ketchikan High School's academic decathlon team traveled to compete in the AcDc regional tournament, this year held in Juneau.
The meet was hosted by Juneau-Douglas High School on Friday and Saturday, according to information sent to the Daily News via email on Saturday evening by team coach Peter Stanton.
"I was proud of the Kayhi team for doing especially well in the Essay, Interview and Speech events, but I have to admit that there were decathletes from Juneau and Craig that achieved some impressive scores in other events that our team couldn't match," Stanton wrote.
