While most of the Academic UIL events are held concurrently, some are held at different times in the spring.


In January, Aabid Razvi from AMCHS placed first in the Congressional Debate category and at the end of the month, Celine Choi (AMCHS) and Razvi will compete in Lincoln-Douglas Debate and Extemporaneous Speaking, respectively.


The CSHS Spelling and Vocabulary Team placed second in the state contest.  Team members included Demi Hu, Giscar Obambo, Kathy Ding and Ruth Yao.

Also scoring points for the overall team totals were Andrew Zhang (AMCHS) and Amy Hu (CSHS), who placed fifth and sixth, respectively, in Science.

With the state speech events still upcoming, CSHS is currently tied for 11th with 49 points and AMCHS is in 13th with 43 points.

Team totals are calculated from results of the individual and team events.  The top six individuals and top two team scores in each category earn points toward the overall team total.

April Falco, CSHS - Current Issues
