State champs: The Cazenovia High School Academic Decathlon team!
Team members who competed at OCC were: Darren Mihaich, Robert Louis, David Martellock, Emma Dudley, Danielle Axelson, Kyle Polhamus, Riley Lloyd, Gaevin Froio, Caden Boone, Brock Houghton, Remi Boissonnas and Joseph Mevec.
The AD team competed in the interview and speech portion (a prepared 4-minute speech and an impromptu 2-minute speech) of the competition Friday evening, and then participated in the written and Super Quiz contests all day Saturday. David Martellock and Joseph Mevec both were asked to perform their speeches during the “Speech Showcase,” in front of an audience of competitors, coaches and parents, while waiting for the judges’ results. David’s speech was “How to be a Hipster,” and Joe’s was “The Right to Bear Bears.” “Both were entertaining and witty,” Ms. Brenneck and Mr. Kelly said in an email. The team now advances to the national competition in Minneapolis, April 24-27.
