Sam Clapcich – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Academic Team has a new adviser, media specialist Audrey Dombroski.

The team competes in trivia games against other schools from around the county.

In addition to participation in the  club, Mustangs will learn new things in a fun way. Interested Mustangs can get more information at the Academic Team’s organizational meeting, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. today in the media center.

Dombroski said, “I’m most intrigued by the teamwork aspect of the Academic Team. I love the idea of competing in a professional manner with some of the smartest students in our whole county. I’m confident Lakewood students will shine!

“It’s fun; you learn more every day, you get to socialize and meet new people, and if you’re competitive, you’ll find it satisfying!” she continued.

The club will announce a schedule in September. Dombroski believes that meetings will be every Wednesday after school during the competition season.
