Cesar Chavez captured the Phoenix Union Academic Decathlon this past weekend, amassing 40,991 points.  It is believed to be the Champions’ highest Decathlon score ever.   Eight of the top nine scorers in the almost 200-student competition were from Chavez. Eleven Phoenix Union schools, as well as Sierra Vista Buena, Kingman and Seton Catholic competed in the event at Maryvale High School. Maryvale finished second with 34,568, edging Alhambra’s 34,555 by the slimmest of margins. 

Chavez won the Super Quiz Relay, while Alhambra tied Kingman for 3rd place.

Chavez students took the silver and bronze in Honors Overall scoring, and swept the Scholastic and Varsity medals. Alyssa Turner was second highest scorer in the event, and second in Honors.  Jasmine Lebron took top score in the Scholastic division and Julio Espinoza topped scores in the Varsity division.
