The Wilmot Union High School Academic Decathlon team has won the state championship.
Though Wilmot is a perennial contender in academic decathlon, this is the school’s first state championship. Nineteen teams competed at the state competition in Wisconsin Dells, which concluded Thursday night. The overall theme this year was WWI.
Wilmot has now qualified for the national competition, to be held April 24-26 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
