We would be remiss to let the school year pass from memory without congratulating the local national champions. We read that Wenatchee High School’s famed Sports Medicine team recently placed first in the large-school category at the American Academic Competition Institute National Sports Medicine Competition. Results of the online competition were just announced. Wenatchee received the top score in its division, ahead of Culver City, Calif.; Monte Vista High School of Danville, Calif.; and Valencia High School of Valencia, Calif.
Wenatchee also was the top scoring team overall, according to AACI press release, and thus is declared National Grand Champion. The competition involves a 300-question exam on topics such as first aid, physiology, anatomy and medical terminology. Over 2,000 students competed.
