Kayhi’s ACDC team placed in four categories at the state competition in Anchorage last month. In the interview category senior Tommy Varela won gold, and senior Carly Royer won bronze. In the social science category junior Liz Vossen took silver. The team placed third in the super quiz.
ACDC coach Peter Stanton  said he was happy with the performance and looks forward to next year.
“Juneau did better than they have ever done and we were kind of in the middle of the pack,” Stanton said. “I’m very enthusiastic about next year, a lot of good students will be returning.”
Karly Blair and Carly Royer are the ACDC team co-captains and they said the team did its best.
“There’s always room for improvement,” said Royer. “Next year people will get more into it and we were more focused this year than we were last year.”
There were a total of seventeen teams from all over Alaska and our team competed in 10 different categories.
