Portland High School’s team placed fifth at the Maine Academic Decathlon State Meet on Saturday, March 2.

“We had a full team and posted our highest team score in many years,” said social studies teacher Sally Reagan. “Please congratulate all of our team members, as they persevered through tests, speeches and interviews throughout the 10-hour day.”

There also were three individual medal winners, she said. “Meg Baltes had our team high score and a GOLD medal for the honors division in the Interview category,” Reagan said. “Ella Reagan earned a bronze medal in the honors division in the Essay category. Oliver Smith earned a silver medal in the scholastic division in the Essay category.”

The following students represented PHS at the meet: Meg Baltes; Tahj Hebert; Ella Reagan; Henry Mandeville; Isabella Manecchia; Oliver Smith; Mackenzie Bryant; Alexander Hernandez; Mireille Tona; Brayden Young; and Hunter Stokes.

Reagan also extended “a special thanks to [teachers] Mike Quinn and Jayne Sawtelle for cheering us on during the Super Quiz!”
