“The FHS AD team won first place in the overall team competition and won first place in Super Quiz as well .  They also outscored the large school champion Dobie by a thousand points.  Our team with only two returners from last year made a great showing for this competition. They posted fifth in the state, so we have some hard work ahead of us for the next round.  They won 63 regional  individual medals.  Thanks to Fred and Elizabeth who helped lead  the team to this success.  I cannot thank them enough for all their hard work,” said Coach Renae Simons.
