Avon Middle-High School’s academic decathlon team took home second place in last weekend’s regional Academic Decathlon meet at North Reading High School. Avon competed against 12 other high school teams on their knowledge of art, economics, language and literature, math, music, science, and social science. Several of the 17 students from Avon earned individual medals, according to coach Tricia London. She said most outstanding was freshman Fabienne Dessalines, who was Avon’s highest scorer and won a gold medal in the language and literature category, as well as a silver in art and honorable mentions in economics, music, and science. In total, the team earned 11 honorable mentions, four medals, and two plaques, London said. She said Avon has had an academic decathlon team for eight years and last year qualified for the state finals, missing this year by just a few points.
