The Slinger Academic Decathlon team competed in the regional academic decathlon competition this Friday. This is after competing in locals in November which in recent years is online. The team was hoping to make it to state, which they were successful in doing. Other teams competing were New Berlin EIsenhower, New Berlin West, and Waukesha. Allan Elfe placed 3rd in Math for the Honors category and overall Slinger was 7th at the competition. The team does well at motivating each other to do better. The topic for this season is in sickness and in health. Members have been studying this theme through music, art, science, math, economics, and social science and are happy to have their work pay off once again!
