The Coosa High academic decathlon team was crowned champions in the Floyd County Schools’ academic decathlon competition held at the Floyd County Board of Education central office on Friday, Jan. 10.

Zayden Sullins of Coosa High School was the highest-scoring individual participant this year with 2,788 total points. The theme for questions in this year’s competition was “In Sickness and in Health: An Exploration of Illness and Wellness.”

As the first-place finisher, Coosa will now represent Floyd County Schools in the state competition in February. Second-place finisher Armuchee will now wait to see if their point total will qualify as a wild card entry. Wild card entries are selected based on team point totals from local school system competitions across the state.

The academic decathlon features three divisions of competition: honors, scholastic and varsity. The academic contest features competitions in literature, math, economics, social science, science, music and art.
