After the Facts For most, the word " decathlon " conjures images of a finely condi- toned athlete put- ting the shot, sprinting down a track or vaulting easily over a ridiculously high bar. A de- cathlon of a different sort chal- lenged nine students in late November. It was the first annual Contra Costa Academic Decathlon, es- tablished to select a county rep- resentative to December ' s state contest in Orange County. For the eleven area schools that en- tered, the event involved writ- ten tests in English and Literature, Physical and Bio- logical Sciences, Mathematics, Fine Arts, and Social Sciences, and speeches, both prepared and extemporaneous. Fifty students expressed in- terest in the team; by means of a qualifying test and teacher recommendations, Head Coach Robert Wicks selected the team ' s two contestants and one alternate in each of three categories determined by grade point averages: Honors (3.74-4.00), Scholastic (3.00- 3.74) and Varsity (2.00-2.99). Team members Alec As- pinwall, John Bennett, Greg Holley, Stannie Holt, Dana Smith and Andy Worthington and alternates Martha Crocker, Tom Steuber and Steve Tuemmler met, during the two weeks before the decathlon, with various teachers to dis- cuss subject areas and to re- view sample tests before they reported to Miramonte High School ' s lecture hall on Friday, November 21. They completed the five written exams before noon and listened to speeches before the competition ended at three. When the points were tal- lied, the team, with approxi- mately 20,000 of a possible 30,000, had placed second, 1,000 behind Miramonte. An awards reception was held the following week, at which Greg, John and Stannie were presented individual gold medals for their performances in Physical and Biological Sci- ences, English and Literature, and Fine Arts, respectively, and Stannie received a second medal for her outstanding total score in the Scholastic cate- gory. They didn ' t have to hurl javelins or clear high hurdles, but the academic decathletes managed to achieve satisfac- tion and success in their seden- tary, but strenuous, pursuits.
