Academic Decathlon[edit]

Team[edit]

Nimitz has placed in the top ten schools at State for 21 consecutive years. Nimitz has won the Region title 25 out of the past 30 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.

Two Nimitz students are known to have passed the 9,000 mark - Michael Averitt in 1998 and JoAnna Rodenberg in 2000, both at the State level of competition.

Region Losses[edit]

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

1996 loss: 2nd to South Grand Prairie High School
1997 loss: 2nd to South Grand Prairie High School (whom they beat at State)
2005 loss: 2nd to Keller (the State Champion that year)
2015 loss: 2nd to Coppell High School
2016 loss: 2nd to Coppell High School
2018 loss: 5th, behind Coppell, Marcus, Hebron, and Irving
