At the World Scholar's Cup Tournament of Champions, hosted by the Yale International Relations Association, the USA delegation made a lot of noise. Northwood High School from California placed 2nd and 6th overall in the senior division, while the team from Seven Lakes High School in Houston was ranked fifth coming into the Scholar's Bowl and surely would have retained at least a top-five finish if they hadn't had to leave for the airport. Great kudos go to the Academic Decathletes from these schools.

Hong Kong, China, and Singapore beware!
