Other divison results were Division 1, 1. Coleman, 2. New Lima, 3. Kiowa
Division 2, 1. Latta, 2. Tushka, 3. Allen
Division 3, 1. Plainview, 2. Lone Grove, 3. Kingston
Division 4, 1. Ada, 2. Durant, 3. Broken Bow .
Overall team totals are considered proprietary at Southeastern and are not released, but the 19 first place awards for Ada pointed to a high overall score.
AHS counselor Martha Nelson sponsored the team with June Murphy coordinating the freshmen entering from the junior high.
Triple threat freshman Sage Love had a second in Oklahoma History and thirds in English I and Algebra I.
It was the 99th annual curriculum contest hosted by Southeastern.
Dr. James Britton, professor in the Chemistry, Computer and Physical Sciences Department, was in his second year as coordinator.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our area schools and for Southeastern,” Britton said. “It’s a chance for the students to compete and be introduced to Southeastern at the same time.”
The contest featured approximately 2,500 students from 70 area schools participating in 40 contests with trophies and medals awarded to winning schools and students.
Exams covered numerous subjects, including mathe-matics, science, English, foreign languages, fine arts and computers.
