Not resting on their laurels, or shall we say leis that they earned last year in Honolulu in the school’s first trip to nationals, the Wilmot Academic Decathlon team finds itself in unfamiliar territory. The Panthers are in first place in the state after the local level competition, they’ve placed second before, twice, but never in first after locals. Not only are they in first, they are substantially ahead of the 2nd place team from New Richmond. Wilmot posted a score of 21,925 points, which is 2,999 points ahead of the New Richmond team and over 2,000 points higher than Wilmot’s score at locals last year. Wilmot did this despite losing 2/3rds of last year’s scoring members from their second place finishing team at Nationals to graduation.
The Panthers are being led by junior Carlie Banchi in the honors division with 4,694 points out of a possible 6,000. Carlie’s total is the highest in Wilmot history. Close behind is another junior Carl Simmons who posted the school’s second highest all-time tally with 4,491 points.
In the scholastic division senior Johny Weber put up 4,126 points, tops for all Wilmot scholastics past and present. Junior Joey Burba added an impressive 3,817 points in the same division.
The nine member team is rounded out by juniors Angela Schumacher, Alyssa Gregory, Althea Disse, Mason Nindl, and Claudia Baker. Alternates include junior Ashley Dabbs and sophomores Alexa Lewis and Kyle Kostrova.
The Wilmot decathletes will now advance to regionals held at UW-Whitewater on January 9thwhere they hope to win their 5th straight regional title, propelling them to the state competition in March at the Wisconsin Dells. Winning a 2nd consecutive state title would earn the Panthers another trip to Nationals to be held this year in Garden Grove, CA., a suburb of L.A. and just miles away from Disneyland.
