The Canyon del Oro High School Academic Decathlon team placed second in the nation in Minneapolis, Minn. April 27. The team originally was told it had won a national title, but a scoring error discovered afterward determined the team placed second.
The team competed in Division II. The students competed in art, economics, essay, interview, language and literature, math, music, science, social studies and speech competitions.
Math teacher Chris Yetman coaches the nine-student team.
