    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Teams of students from 22 Los Angeles-area high
    schools will be in Sacramento today to compete in the weekend-long 2012
    California Academic Decathlon, with the delegation led by last year’s national
    champion, Granada Hills High School.
    Granada Hills won the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Academic

    Nuys, Palisades Charter, Hamilton, Garfield, Bell, Los Angeles, San Pedro and
    Francis Polytechnic high schools.
    The Los Angeles County Office of Education, meanwhile, will send a
    contingent of nine teams, led by its local champion, Torrance West High School,
    which won the county Academic Decathlon with 45,132 out of a possible 60,000
    points. The school has won seven of the last eight county Academic Decathlon
    titles.
    Also representing the county at the statewide competition will be
    Redondo Union, Beverly Hills, Arcadia, Burbank, Palos Verdes Peninsula High
    School, Pico Rivera El Rancho, Torrance South and Torrance high schools.
    The statewide competition, which has the topic “The Age of Empire,’
    will test students in art, economics, language/literature, math, music, science
    and social science. The winner, which will be announced Sunday, will advance to
    the national competition April 25-28 in Albuquerque.
