Academic Decathlon[edit]

Team[edit]

Nimitz had placed in the top ten schools at State for 21 consecutive years up until the 2018 season. Nimitz has won the Region title 26 out of the past 35 years.

The team is best-known for its 2004 Large School State win that failed to capture the state's sole National spot. The Medium School Champion that year, Friendswood High School, had the higher score at State and was thus awarded the National spot.

Three Nimitz students are known to have passed the 9,000 mark - Michael Averitt in 1998, JoAnna Rodenberg in 2000, and Alan Ta in 2020 all at the State level of competition. Alan Ta holds the all-time Nimitz record score of 9150.4.

Nimitz has only lost nine Regional competitions since the team was first formed for the 1988 season.
