Regional Academic Competition Winners

Regional 8th Grade First Place Team-Klein Intermediate with Coach David Luizzo

Over the weekend, Klein ISD middle and high school students competed in Regional Academic Competitions. At Waller High School, over 100 seventh and eighth graders competed against 24 area schools in the Region 2 Academic Pentathlon. There were five subjects to tackle including math, science, social science, fine arts, and literature. Klein ISD produced the top three teams in both the seventh and eighth grade results.

Seventh grade winners were Krimmel in 3rd place, Strack in 2nd place, and Klein Intermediate in 1st place led by coach David Luizzo. In eighth grade, the winning order was Strack (White team) in 3rd place, Krimmel in 2nd place, and Strack (Red Team) in 1st place led by coaches Lindsay Roberts and Lana Etherington.

Good luck to Strack 7th, a Texas High Scoring they travel to compete at the Pentathlon Nationals in Nashville, TN!

Once the scores were in, the highest two scores in the entire state were invited to compete at the National Pentathlon in Nashville, TN. The seventh grade team from Strack scored 18,665 points which qualified them for an invitation to compete against the top schools from all over the nation in a few weeks. The competition will be held on May 16-18. We wish them the best of luck at Nationals!


Meanwhile, at Seven Lakes High School in Katy, the high school Octathlon teams were competing in the Regional Academic Octathlon. This competition includes the five subjects from Pentathlon, as well as economics, art, and music. After a strong showing, Klein High took third place out of 22 teams.
