Academic Champions


The Northmont Academic Challenge team won their third straight NAQT state academic championship on Saturday, defeating Solon High School (Cleveland) 355-295 in the state championship game. Northmont had posted an 11-0 record entering the game, while Solon was 10-1, meaning that Solon would have had to defeat Northmont twice to win the title. However the Bolts needed just one game to claim the championship and their fourth title in the last six years. Sidney HS defeated Copley HS (Akron) to finish 3rd in the state.
