Ben Sax – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS art teacher Elizabeth Henry is gearing up the A-Team for their first competition on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at Palmetto High School.
A-Team stands for the academic team, which is a competitive academic contest where students in groups of four compete against students from other schools. The questions range in all subject areas from English Literature to computers and technology.
Every week the A-team practices by answering sample questions from the previous meets.
Last year, some of the LRHS A-team members made the Manatee County state team.
This year, Henry hopes to repeat this success, as she is “very optimistic about this team.”
